A third man has been arrested in connection with the disappearance of Aniah Blanchard, stepdaughter of current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight, Walt Harris. According to WSFA, David Johnson Jr. was arrested in Montgomery, Ala., and charged with hindering prosecution.

Two men, Antwon Fisher, 35, and 30-year-old Ibraheem Yazeed, are currently in custody and are prime suspects in Blanchard’s disappearance, which happened last month in Alabama.

Unfortunately, after an exhaustive nationwide search, it was reported earlier today (Mon. Nov. 25, 2019) that remains found in Macon County, Ala., are believed to be those of 19-year old Blanchard, though an autopsy will be conducted to confirm.

The mixed marital arts (MMA) community rallied behind Harris and his family during this terrible time, as UFC president Dana White offered $25,000 for any information leading to Blanchard’s whereabouts.

Soon thereafter, UFC Light Heavyweight champion, Jon Jones, and MMA manager, Ali Abdelaziz, revealed they would each tack on another $25,000 to the reward, which initially started out at $5,000.
