Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., the last person seen with missing University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, has been issued a felony arrest warrant on a charge of abduction with intent to defile.

Charlottesville Police Chief Timothy Longo told The Associated Press the warrant was obtained late Tuesday, and said the search for the missing 18-year-old Graham is still underway after her Sept. 13 disappearance.

According to NBC affiliate WVIR, Matthew, 32, was hired as a nursing assistant at the University of Virginia Medical Center on August 12.

His relationship with Graham, if any, remains unclear, but police say he was seen in surveillance video with her at the Downtown Mall and Tempo restaurant between 1 and 2 a.m. the night of her disappearance.

Police executed two search warrants on Matthew's car and apartment on Hessian Hills Way in Albemarle County on Friday.

On Saturday, Matthew visited the police station with several family members and asked for a lawyer, a request that was granted. When he left without speaking with officers, however, Virginia State Police said they followed him, conducting overt surveillance. He then sped away, and remains missing.

A wanted poster and two arrest warrants for misdemeanor reckless driving were issued on Monday, and two new search warrants were executed. Police removed three bags of evidence from Matthew's apartment during the search.

The new felony arrest warrant for abduction with intent to defile was obtained the following day.
