UFC heavyweight fighter Walt Harris has made an appeal to the public and has asked for help in finding his 19-year-old stepdaughter who disappeared in Alabama on Wednesday night. 

Harris' stepdaughter, Aniah Haley Blanchard was reported missing on Thursday by her family. As reported by ABC News, she was last heard from on Wednesday around midnight when she had contacted a friend. She was reportedly last driving her black 2017 Honda CRV before going missing.

In an attempt to help find her, Harris took to various social media platforms to appeal to the public to help him. He asked that anyone with any information could contact him or call Alabama's Auburn Police Department. Blanchard's car was found on Friday, October 25, at an apartment complex in Montgomery after it was reported to the police by a citizen.

It is not clear what made the citizen report the car's location to the authorities. The police revealed that the car had suffered some damage between the time it was last seen in Auburn to when it was found 50 miles in Montgomery. The authorities also released pictures that showed damage to the right side of the car as well as what looks like scrape marks along the front passenger door. 

Blanchard's mother Angela Haley Harris spoke to the WSFA and shared that Blanchard had driven from Auburn along with her brother to North Alabama to attend a funeral. After Blanchard dropped her brother off to his house, she told him she may go out that night but he told her not to as she had work the next day. 

Later that same night, Blanchard's roommate had chatted with her on Snapchat and asked when she was coming home. Blanchard told her roommate that she was out with a 'young' man whom she had just met. She did not reveal how or where she had met the man. At around 11.20 pm, her debit card was used in Auburn and by 12 pm her cell phone 'went dark'.
