Video: Dana White offers $25k reward in emotional plea for return of Walt Harris daughter

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC heavyweight contender, Walt Harris, is living a nightmare after his daughter, 19 year-old Aniah Haley Blanchard, went missing back on Oct. 24 in Auburn, Alabama.

With no leads to her whereabouts, Alabama governor Kay Ivey issued a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Blanchard’s disappearance, and now UFC President Dana White is joining the cause.

“This is a criminal investigation, obviously we’re approaching it as such,’’ Lee County District Attorney Brandon Hughes said (via “We do not believe that Aniah would or did go missing on her own volition.”

White is offering a $25,000 reward on top of what Governor Ivey has pledged. Harris is slotted to headline the promotion’s next ESPN event this December in Washington, D.C., but that could change depending on how the investigation plays out.

Blanchard’s damaged vehicle was recovered by police late last week.
