In another development on the case of UFC fighter Walt Harris' missing stepdaughter, a third suspect named David Johnson Jr. has been arrested and charged with regard to the disappearance of 19-year-old Aniah Blanchard. (h/t MMA Fighting)

The arrest was confirmed by the Lee County District Attorney, Brandon Hughes who said that Johnson Jr. was arrested in Montgomery, Alabama and charged with hindering prosecution related to Blanchard’s disappearance.

Johnson is the third person to be arrested after two other suspects named Ibraheem Yazeed and Antwon Fisher were arrested and charged with first-degree kidnapping earlier this month.

Johnson's arrest comes after the authorities released a statement saying that human remains were discovered in Macon County, Alabama close to Auburn which they believe are that of Blanchard. She was last spotted in Montgomery where her Honda SUV was found two days after she went missing. An eyewitness revealed to the court that he saw Yazeed forcing Blanchard inside her car against her will. Traces of blood were later found in the car, indicative of the fact that Blanchard was physically harmed and could also have endured a life-threatening injury.

Harris sought for help in the search for his missing stepdaughter since she disappeared back in October.
