The Associated Press

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) Police say they have charged a suspect in the disappearance of a University of Virginia student.

Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said at a news conference Tuesday night that police obtained an arrest warrant charging 32-year-old Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr. with abduction with intent to defile.

Police have said they believe Matthew was the last person seen with 18-year-old Hannah Graham, who disappeared Sept. 13.

Police are looking for Matthew, who was last seen Saturday when he stopped by the police station to ask for a lawyer. Police say he sped away afterward, losing officers who had him under surveillance.
