The man was earlier arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
Police have begun drilling inside a pub in York, as part of an investigation into the disappearance of chef Claudia Lawrence.
The Acomb pub was the focus of intense activity today by North Yorkshire Police, who also confirmed they had arrested a 46-year-old man on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
It is understood the search of the pub is related to the arrest.
In the afternoon, a police crime scene officer left carrying drilling equipment in a case.
Today's activity took place about three miles from Miss Lawrence's small house in the Heworth area of York.
The father of Claudia Lawrence hopes today's arrest of a 46-year-old man by police investigating her disappearance "is another vital piece in the jigsaw", his spokesman said.
Peter remains very grateful for all the hard work that North Yorkshire Police are continuing to put in to finding Claudia.
It is to be hoped that this is another vital piece in the jigsaw of information that needs to come in to the police: it is much better if people volunteer information than wasting valuable police time in them having to find it out for themselves and then come looking for people.
Police investigating the disappearance of Claudia Lawrence have been searching a pub in York since early this morning.
Several police vehicles containing dog handlers and specialist teams have been searching the Acomb which is around 3 miles from where Miss Lawrence lived.
Miss Lawrence was last seen on 18 March 2009 after leaving work at the city's university.
A 46-year-old man was arrested this morning by police investigating the disappearance of Claudia Lawrence.
The man, who was arrested in the York area, was arrested on suspicion of perverting the course of justice, North Yorkshire Police said.
Detectives investigating the disappearance of Claudia Lawrence have this morning (23 July 2014) arrested a 46-year-old man from the York area on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
The man is currently being interviewed in custody while searches and forensic enquiries are conducted in relation to the investigation.
With this investigation very much active, and with the possibility that further arrests will be made, it is extremely important that the media and the public do not publish or broadcast anything on traditional media platforms or on social and digital sites, that could compromise the enquiry or the legal rights of those connected to the case and involved in these proceedings.
