Police Department shows Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr. Authorities are again searching the apartment of Matthew, and they believe he is the last person seen with University of Virginia student Hannah Graham before she disappeared. 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 Graham, who has been missing since Sept. 13.
