Surveillance video shows Blanchard and Yazeed at a convenience store on South College Street in Auburn at the same time on the night of October 23, according to police. Her auto was later found abandoned in Montgomery, more than 50 miles (90 kilometres) away. Police had previously said evidence found inside the auto indicated "foul play".
Earlier this week, police released a surveillance photo of a man authorities have identified as Yazeed in the same gas station at the time they believe Blanchard disappeared.
"I am prayerful that the Lord touches this young man's heart so he will be honest and truthful and tell the authorities where our daughter is located", Blanchard's stepmother, Yashiba Blanchard, said in a statement. A judge revoked his $280,000 bond on Thursday in light of the new investigation.
Liverpool's Sadio Mane calls Pep Guardiola's diving comments 'clever'
So naturally, Guardiola was asked whether he considered Sadio Mane a major threat going into such a key game next weekend. For Jürgen it is a penalty, for the referee it was a penalty, for VAR it was a penalty, so I was the wrong guy.
The police believe that at least one other person may be involved in Blanchard's disappearance, and more arrests could come.
"The suspect fled the area when we arrived", Hobbs said, but found and apprehended in a wooded area off the interstate, on Pine Forest Road, two exits into Florida from Alabama. After his arrest, the Marshals turned Yazeed over to Escambia County.
Evidence in her vehicle led police to believe the 19-year-old college student, who is the stepdaughter of UFC heavyweight Walt Harris, was harmed during the crime. He waived extradition and is expected to be brought back to Auburn, Alabama, immediately. She last communicated with her roommate through Snapchat on Wednesday night, just before midnight, saying she would be home soon.
The victim was last seen at a convenience store in Auburn.
The Alabama teen and stepdaughter of an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight fighter Walt Harris is a student at the Southern Union State Community College in Opelika, Alabama.
