Blanchard's car was found Friday at an apartment complex in Montgomery, Alabama, after being reported to police by a citizen at about 6.15pm. It's unclear what prompted the citizen to report the car's location.

Police said in a statement Thursday: 'Evidence from within Aniah Blanchard’s vehicle, recovered in Montgomery, was examined by the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences and has now determined that she was harmed and is considered to be a victim of foul play. 

'The Auburn Police Division and Montgomery Police Department are still requesting assistance from the public regarding any information on the location of Aniah and her vehicle between Wednesday, October 23, 2019, and today.'

The Auburn Police Department released a three-second clip Monday showing Blanchard walking through a convenience store on South College Street around 12.30am in the early hours of Thursday morning. 

The video was recorded just before her black Honda CRV was seen driving away. It was found 50 miles away in Montgomery on Friday with significant damage to the passenger's side. 

On Thursday UFC fighter Jon Jones donated $25,000 to the reward fund for information that leads to Aniah Blanchard being found. 

In an Instagram post, Jones said: '@danawhite @ufc add another 25,000 to that award. The award money is now $55,000. Have someone from the office shoot me a call on where to send the money exactly. #FindAniah #Daughters #Family.'

UFC President Dana White has already pledged to offer $25,000 and $5,000 has come from an anonymous source. 

Blanchard is the stepdaughter of UFC heavyweight fighter Walt Harris who is leading the search efforts and has been using his Instagram and Twitter accounts to ask that people contact him or call Alabama's Auburn Police Department
