Police anticipate more charges in the disappearance and presumed murder of a 23-year-old Medicine Hat woman.

Amy Lewis, 23, disappeared early last week. Her car was found Thursday outside a Medicine Hat motel.

Her family reported her missing on Wednesday -- her car was found at a motel in Medicine Hat the following day.

Police arrested a 34-year-old Medicine Hat man in connection to the case.

Jerrison Stopanski has been charged with accessory after the fact to murder — a charge normally laid against those who investigators suspect of assisting a killer.

Medicine Hat police Insp. Glen Motz says the charges against Stopanski may change as the investigation continues.

"We do not have the body of Amy Lewis and we have not located that," Motz said. "As we proceed with this investigation, we are working through determining exactly what happened to her and the connection between her and the accused and that's why we anticipate further charges as we work through this particular matter."

Stopanski is expected to make his first court appearance in Medicine Hat Tuesday.
