Aniah Blanchard has not been seen by her family since Oct. 23

Authorities are searching for Aniah Haley Blanchard, a college student and stepdaughter of Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight Walt Harris, who has been missing since Oct. 23.

The teenager's family reported her missing in Auburn, Alabama. The Auburn Police Division, in partnership with the Montgomery Police Department, released video showing her in a convenience store on South College Street in Auburn on Oct. 23. Harris has made a public plea for help in searching for Blanchard on his Twitter page.

Earlier, police announced the teen’s abandoned and damaged car had been discovered at an apartment complex in Montgomery about 55 miles away. The vehicle wasn’t damaged prior to Blanchard’s disappearance.

Police have said foul play didn’t appear to be a factor in Blanchard’s disappearance.
