UFC heavyweight Walt Harris’ stepdaughter missing, pleas for help in locating her

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

UFC heavyweight Walt Harris is asking for help after his 19-year-old stepdaughter went missing late Wednesday night.

Aniah Haley Blanchard, a college student in the Auburn, Ala., area, last communicated with a friend just before midnight on Wednesday night, according to multiple police reports. Blanchard’s mother, Angela Haley-Harris, told WBRC that her daughter’s debit card was last used around 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday night.

She was reported missing on Thursday morning, and the whereabouts of her black 2017 Honda CR-V are is also unknown at this time.

Walt Harris sent out a public plea on his social media accounts asking for everyone to be on the lookout for his stepdaughter after she went missing earlier this week.

At this point, there is no suspicion of foul play. But police are investigating the situation until Blanchard has been located.

Harris, a 13-fight veteran of the UFC, is currently in training camp as he prepares for arguably the biggest fight of his career when he faces former title challenger Alistair Overeem in the main event of UFC on ESPN 7 from Washington D.C.

Calls to Auburn Police from MMA Fighting went unreturned as of Friday.

In his post asking for the public’s help in finding his stepdaughter, Harris showed pictures of her and the license plate number to her car in hopes of information being forwarded to the authorities.

Any information on Blanchard’s whereabouts can be sent to the Auburn Police Division Detective Section at 334-501-3140, the anonymous tip line at 334-246-1391 or the 24-hour non-emergency number at 334-501-3100.
