Police confirmed for the first time this week that they believe he was murdered.
It came as they began to search land at Maize Farm, East Heckington, Lincolnshire, where they believe Brodie might have been buried.
Officers said yesterday that the search had now finished but no body had been found.
Betton was arrested on Wednesday along with a 31-year-old man, believed to be Craig Moran, formerly of Bestwood.
The 31-year-old has been released on bail, pending further enquiries.
