Last week, police confirmed for the first time they believe he was murdered.
Officers searched land at Maize Farm, East Heckington, Lincolnshire, where they believed Brodie might have been buried, but didn't find a body.
Betton was arrested on Wednesday, along with a 31-year-old man, who has since been released on bail pending further inquiries.
