CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia (AP) — Authorities are again searching the apartment of a man they believe is the last person seen with a British-born student before she disappeared.

A Charlottesville city spokeswoman says police returned Monday with a new search warrant at the apartment of 32-year-old Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr. His apartment was first searched Friday morning.

Matthew is being sought on arrest warrants charging him with reckless driving, but authorities also say they want to talk to him about 18-year-old Hannah Graham, who has been missing since Sept. 13. He hasn't been charged in the disappearance.

Charlottesville police Chief Timothy Longo says Matthew had stopped by a police station Saturday with several family members and asked for a lawyer. He was given a lawyer but left, driving at a high rate of speed.
