Blanchard was reported missing on Oct. 24. A total of 11 agencies are actively searching for her, with investigators keying in on the area between Auburn and Montgomery. Surveillance video from a convenience store put her in Auburn on Oct. 23, and photos from the store show Yazeed was there at the same time.
A witness told investigators that he saw Yazeed force Blanchard into a car, and an affidavit states blood evidence, “indicative of someone suffering a life-threatening injury,” was found in the passenger compartment of Blanchard’s 2017 Honda CR-V, according to TV station WSFA.
Her vehicle was found on Oct. 25 at an apartment complex in Montgomery, and it had sustained damage.
