UFC Fighter Pleads for Help Finding 19-Year-Old Stepdaughter Missing 5 Days
The college student was reported missing on Thursday.
The search is on for a missing Alabama college student whose stepfather, UFC heavyweight fighter Walter Harris, is pleading for her safe return home.
Aniah Haley Blanchard, 19, was reported missing by her family on Thursday. The last time she was heard from was by a friend on Wednesday night, according to authorities.
"Please help find my baby Aniah Blanchard. She is missing [in] Auburn," Harris wrote on Twitter after Blanchard’s disappearance. "Please help!!!! Any info message me on here or call the Auburn police … PLEASE SHARE THIS!!!!"
Blanchard’s mom, Angela Haley-Harris, told WBRC that her daughter had met up with a man the night of her disappearance. That was also the night her debit card was last used.
Blanchard’s 2017 Honda CR-V was found Friday night at an apartment complex in Montgomery, the Auburn Police Department said. The SUV’s front, left tire was damaged when authorities located it.
Police posted a picture of the vehicle and asked anyone who may have information to contact them.
“While the vehicle has been recovered, Blanchard has not been located. The investigation continues regarding her disappearance," the police department said in a statement. "Anyone having information regarding the whereabouts of the vehicle between the 23rd and the 25th or witnessed an accident or other collision involving this vehicle is urged to contact the Auburn Police Division Detective Section at 334-501-3140 or the anonymous tip line at 334-246-1391."
The teen was last seen wearing a black dress, stockings and tan boots, according to reports. She is 5 feet, 6 inches and weighs 125 pounds.
