Suspect Charged With Kidnapping In Disappearance of Aniah Blanchard

Man wanted for Aniah Blanchard’s disappearance arrested in Florida	 	 	 			Ibraheem Yazeed 30

A man wanted in connection with the disappearance of UFC fighter Walt Harris' 19-year-old stepdaughter was arrested in Florida late Thursday night, just one day after police released video surveillance showing him in the same location where the victim was last seen.

A man wanted in connection with the disappearance of Alabama college student Aniah Blanchard has been arrested in Florida, authorities said Friday. The suspect fled and was captured a short time later and taken into custody by marshals. Several days later police announced that the investigation turned criminal after evidence collected from the vehicle signaled that Blanchard "was harmed and is considered to be a victim of foul play".

Yazeed was out on bond on charges of attempted murder, kidnapping and first-degree robbery earlier this year at the time of Blanchard kidnapping.

On Thursday, Auburn Police identified 30-year-old Ibraheem Yazeed as a suspect and issued a first-degree kidnapping warrant, letting the public know Yazeed was risky and possibly armed. They said it was recorded just before her SUV was seen traveling southbound on South College Street and was the last place she had been seen.

Auburn Police Department identified Yazeed as the man they believe abducted and harmed Aniah Blanchard, 19. It had fresh damage along its passenger side.

"It's very concerning to know that someone who has committed that sort of crime was out and in our community", Auburn Police Chief Paul Register said on Thursday.


Evidence from within Blanchard's vehicle (pictured below) was recovered in Montgomery. He faces charges of attempted murder and kidnapping in a February case.

Aniah Blanchard, 19, is a college student in Alabama who had been missing since October 23.

He was also arrested in 2017 for aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, records show.

Two days after her disappearance, Blanchard's auto was found damaged at an apartment complex in Montgomery. A judge revoked that bond on Thursday.

Anyone with any information concerning the whereabouts of Blanchard is asked to contact the Auburn Police Division Detective Section at 334-501-3140, the anonymous tip line at 334-246-1391, or the 24-hour non-emergency number at 334-501-3100. It is believed that Blanchard was taken against her will, the report notes.
