19-year-old Aniah Haley Blanchard vanished two weeks ago.

AUBURN, Ala. — It's been two weeks since a 19-year-old college student from Auburn, Alabama was last seen.

Authorities have released surveillance photos of a person they want to speak with regarding Aniah Haley Blanchard's disappearance.

She was last seen on Oct. 23, and was reported missing the next day. Police later found her damaged car in Montgomery, about 55 miles away.

Last week, police released a short video showing Blanchard at a convenience store located on South College Street just before her disappearance. On Wednesday, Auburn Police Division released photos of a man, who they said was inside of the store at the time Blanchard was also last seen.

The man appears to be in his early to mid 20s and weighs about 200 pounds. Police said he is between 5'8" and 5'10" tall.
