AUBURN, Ala. - Auburn police released photos Wednesday evening of a man they say is a person of interest in the disappearance of Aniah Blanchard.

The photos of the man were captured on a surveillance camera inside a convenience store at the time Blanchard was last seen on Oct. 23.

The man is between 5 feet 8 and 5 feet 10 inches tall and approximately 200 pounds, police said. He was wearing dark-colored pants and shoes and a camouflage hooded jacket with "Vans" in white writing across the back.

The man left the area in a late 2000s model Lincoln Town Car that was silver or gray, police said.

Police have said they suspect foul play in Blanchard's disappearance after finding her damaged vehicle at an apartment complex in Montgomery.
