Police Get One Step Closer to Finding Missing UVA Student

They have arrested a suspect in connection to her possible abduction.

A suspect Graham entered a bar with Matthew the night of her abduction.

The case has sparked national interest, and thousands of people have searched Virginia for her. Graham is just one of five girls to go missing in Charlottesville, Virginia over the past five years.

"This case is nowhere near over. We have a person in custody, but a long road ahead of us," Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo said in a press conference Wednesday. "We're asking every person within the sound of my voice to find Hannah."
