COLLEGE STUDENT ANIAH BLANCHARD HAD A DEEP FEAR OF BEING KIDNAPPED – WHEN SHE DISAPPEARS, UFC FIGHTER WALT HARRIS BATTLES FOR JUSTICE FOR HIS STEPDAUGHTER

“48 Hours” Investigates in “Fighting for Aniah”

Saturday, August 28, 10:00 PM, ET/PT

Aniah Blanchard was a 19-year-old college student and the stepdaughter of UFC fighter Walt Harris when she disappeared and was murdered in Alabama in the fall of 2019. CBS News special correspondent James Brown and 48 HOURS investigate the disappearance and murder of Blanchard, and her family’s quest for justice, in an encore of “Fighting for Aniah” to be broadcast Saturday, August 28 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and streamed on Paramount +.

Blanchard’s disappearance captured the nation, as her family, the local community and law enforcement searched for more than a month to find her and uncover the truth of what happened to her that fateful night. Blanchard was widely known for always putting other people before herself, but she also had a deep-seated fear of being kidnapped and harmed. Then she vanished. It would take two days before her car was found 55 miles away, and a blood-soaked seat and a bullet in the door told investigators that her worst fear had likely became a reality.

Police discovered video of Aniah Blanchard on the night she vanished at a gas station near her home. Inside the convenience store at the station was Ibraheem Yazeed, a man with a lengthy arrest record who was free on bond, and later charged with murdering Blanchard. Yazeed pleaded not guilty to all the charges against him. 48 HOURS explores what happened that night and how her parents are fighting to keep those accused of serious crimes off the streets.
