Auburn Police Department

Police have arrested a second person in connection with the disappearance of Aniah Blanchard, 19, who has been missing since Oct. 23.

According to the Clarion-Ledger, the Auburn Police Department took Antwain Shamar Fisher into custody Friday night in Montgomery. Though it is still unclear how the 35-year-old is involved in the case, he is currently facing charges of first-degree kidnapping, CNN reports.

Earlier this month, police arrested 30-year-old Ibraheem Yazeed of Montgomery, Alabama, and charged him with first-degree kidnapping in Blanchard’s case.

As the Clarion-Ledger notes, a witness claimed to have seen Yazeed forcing Blanchard into a vehicle at a convenience station, where the 19-year-old was last seen. “Blood of someone suffering a life-threatening injury” was reportedly found in the passenger side of the teen’s car, the charges against Yazeed notes.

In Yazeed’s case, a Lee County District judge recently denied a motion requesting bond for Yazeed and also ordered the 30-year-old to submit a DNA sample.
