Ibraheem Yazeed faces charges of kidnapping in Aniah Haley Blanchard case

The Auburn police division has identified a suspect that stems from an investigation into the disappearance of Aniah Blanchard.

Police believe that foul play may be involved in Blanchard's disappearance.

We will all continue to hope and pray for Aniah Blanchard's safe return, and it goes without saying that if you have any information relating to the case, please get in touch with the Auburn police department as soon as possible. She was last seen in Auburn.

Just a few days after Blanchard disappeared, her black SUV was found in the parking lot of an apartment complex almost 50 miles from where she had last been seen.

Police are asking the public for help identifying the man, who was seen on video surveillance inside the convenience store at the time Blanchard was last seen.

"The man is in his early to mid-20s, weighs approximately 200 lbs., and is between 5'8" and 5'10".

The man left the area in a silver or gray late 2000's model Lincoln Town vehicle, al.com reported. He should be considered unsafe and potentially armed, they said.

Authorities are searching for the suspect, who is out on bond for charges of kidnapping and attempted murder from another jurisdiction, according to the release.

If everyone in Washington who voted for Mr Trump was in that stadium, they would only account for about a quarter of the seats. Trump continues a sports tour of recent events that included the World Series and UFC 244 , where he was booed.


A warrant was obtained for his arrest on first-degree kidnapping charges, police said.

Anyone with information on Blanchard's whereabouts is asked to contact the Auburn Police Division at 334-501-3140, the anonymous tip line at 334-246-1391 or the 24-hour non-emergency number at 334-501-3100.

Investigators said evidence from Blanchard's vehicle determined she had been harmed - and new evidence shows Yazeed was at the same location as Blanchard on the day she disappeared, WIAT reported.

Searches for Blanchard have been focused in Auburn and Montgomery, as well as the area between the two cities.

Aniah Blanchard, the stepdaughter of UFC heavyweight Walt Harris, was reported missing on October 24.

Blanchard, a black woman with a light complexion, attends Southern Union State Community College, which has several campuses in East Alabama.

A reward of $105,000 from multiple sources has been pledged toward the effort to find her. UFC president Dana White steps up with a $25,000 contribution.
