The man, Portage Police say is a "person of interest" in his wife's disappearance appeared before a judge this morning.

Christopher Lockhart was in Kalamazoo District Court for a bond violation hearing. He entered a not guilty plea.

Lockhart's wife, Theresa, has been missing since May 18. In early June, police cited lack of communication, when they named him as a "person of interest" her disappearance. Their home in Portage was searched a few days later.
