Blanchard was reported missing Thursday, Oct. 24. She last talked to a friend just before midnight on Wednesday, Oct. 23. Auburn Police Chief Paul Register said investigators were keying in on the area between Auburn and Montgomery. The cities are about 50 miles apart.

A suspect in Blanchard’s disappearance, Ibraheem Yazeed, was arrested late Thursday night in Pensacola, Florida. He appeared in an Escambia County courtroom in Florida, Friday, where he waived extradition, and he was soon en route back to Lee County.
