Ibraheem Yazeed, sought in connection to the disappearance of 19-year-old Aniah Blanchard, has been captured, according to online records and police.

A man wanted in the disappearance of UFC fighter Walt Harris' stepdaughter has been apprehended in Florida, but the whereabouts of the woman he's accused of abducting remained a mystery early Friday. He is being held at the local county jail, according to Maj.

Less than a year later, back in Montgomery, Yazeed was then charged with two counts of kidnapping, two counts of robbery, attempted murder and possession of marijuana after two men were beaten inside a hotel room in January.

"The marshals were the ones who handcuffed him and took him into custody", Hobbs said.

"Analysis of evidence has determined that Yazeed was at the same location Blanchard was last seen and is involved in taking Aniah against her will", the statement said Thursday. Hobbs could not identify the suspect as Yazeed.

Escambia County in the Florida Panhandle is about 144 miles south of Montgomery where Yazeed is from. 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.

The Auburn Police Department identified Yazeed as a suspect, issuing a warrant and calling him risky and possibly armed, according to the report.

Two days after her disappearance, Blanchard's vehicle was found damaged at an apartment complex in Montgomery.

On Oct. 25, her vehicle was found significantly damaged and abandoned at an apartment complex in Montgomery.

"We do anticipate other arrests, so we do thing there's a likelihood someone else is involved in this case and we hope to bring that person to justice as well", he said.

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

Yazeed was out on bond at the time of Blanchard's disappearance. A judge revoked the bond Thursday.

Blanchard, a student at Southern Union State Community College, was reported missing the next day.

In 2012, he was accused of ramming his vehicle into a Montgomery police auto at a Chevron station and charged with two counts of attempted murder of a police officer.

Blanchard has been missing since October 24. It is believed that Blanchard was taken against her will, the report notes.
