UFC heavyweight Walt “Big Ticket” Harris and his family have been searching for their missing daughter Aniah Blanchard who went missing on October 23rd from Auburn, Alabama. Her vehicle was recovered in Montgomery, Alabama on Friday, October 25th with vehicle damage. Aniah had apparently met a man that night and hasn’t been seen or heard from since, and the last known place she had been seen was at a convenience store in Auburn.
The world has gotten behind the search. CNN, Good Morning America, and so many other media companies from both in and outside of the MMA community have shared the story and the plea to just bring Aniah home.
The MMA community always circles the wagons and comes to the aide of one of their own, especially in times of trouble. UFC President came out tonight with a plea for help, and a reward for info leading to the safe return of Aniah to her family.
If anyone has any information on Aniah Blanchard, please call *HP or 911 immediately. Friends and fans please pass this video around. Thank you pic.twitter.com/4xDfcPMhGL
