Authorities in Florida have arrested 30-year-old Ibraheem Yazeed and charged him with first-degree kidnapping in Aniah’s disappearance. Out on bond for another alleged kidnapping at the time Aniah went missing, Yazeed was identified as a person of interest after video surveillance showed him inside the same convenience store where Aniah was last seen.

Aniah’s vehicle was later found 50 miles away in Montgomery, Alabama. Reportedly, blood found inside the vehicle belongs to her.

“We’re trying to keep the hope that – even though we know she had an injury – that she is still alive,” says Aniah’s mother, Angela.
