Texas Equusearch is asking volunteers and community members that know the search area locations in the search for Anaih Blanchard to not publish those on social media. Since foul play is considered a possibility in the case, it is important those locations of the search are not made public, according to a post on the group's Facebook page.
Blanchard, 19, was reported missing on Oct. 23, after last communicating with a friend just before midnight.
She is described as a light-complexioned black female, 5-feet-six-inches tall and weighs about 125 pounds, according to police. She has brown eyes and brown hair. She was last seen wearing a black dress, tan duck boots and black stockings, according to police.

Police found evidence in her car, which was found damaged outside of an apartment building in Montgomery on Oct. 25, that she was harmed and is considered to be a victim of foul play, the Auburn Police Division announced on Oct. 31.
The Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences examined evidence from within Blanchard’s vehicle, found in Montgomery, to make the determination.
