An arrest warrant has been issued in the Hannah Graham abduction case. Police have issued the warrant for Jesse Matthew, and his lawyer has responded to the charges.

On Wednesday, James Camblos, an attorney for the only known suspect in the disappearance of the University of Virginia student , told reporters, “I am Mr. Matthew’s attorney. I was hired on Saturday. That’s the only thing that I’m going to confirm at this point. The family and I — nobody is making any statements at this point in time. We might later on, but right now we are not.”

Camblos spoke out about his clients arrest warrant just one day after it was issued by. Jesse Matthew is wanted on suspicion of abduction with the intent to defile.

According to police, Matthew was the last person seen with Graham on September 13. The two were spotted together by a Downtown Mall in Charlottesville, Virginia.

A wanted poster was quickly circulated for the 32-year-old suspect. Jesse Matthew is also wanted on two counts of reckless driving.

Speaking to Anderson Cooper, Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo, explained, “We’re asking for a broader community search with property owners.”

Longo and his officers are asking that property owners search any large parcels surrounding their homes, offices, and other locations.

Police had already searched Matthew’s apartment and car, but did not provide any specifics about their findings. Several possible pieces of evidence were sent to a lab for further analysis.

Mr. Camblos claims that his client went to the police state over the weekend, but no warrant for his arrest had been issued in the Hannah Graham case. Camblos told reporters that he was the lawyer who met with his new clients at the police station.
