Professional Basketball Player Arrested in Connection with Mysterious Disappearance of Woman

LAS VEGAS, NV — A basketball player for the NBA G League has been arrested by the FBI in connection with the mysterious disappearance of a 23-year-old woman in Las Vegas.

Chance Comanche, a 27-year-old former Stockton Kings player, was taken into custody and booked into the Sacramento County Jail on Friday. He is facing charges of first-degree kidnapping.

Marayna Rodgers, a medical assistant from Washington state, vanished on December 6 while on a trip to Las Vegas. She was last seen getting into a car with her friend, Sakari Harnden. Harnden, who is 19-years-old, was also arrested and charged with first-degree kidnapping and theft.

Comanche played a G League game in Henderson, Nevada the night before Rodgers went missing.

The arrest warrant for Comanche was issued on the charges that originated outside of California. He is currently being held without bail and is scheduled to appear in court on December 19.

Family and friends of Rodgers have expressed concern over her disappearance, stating that it is out of character for her to leave home or abandon her dogs. The investigation into her disappearance is ongoing.

Comanche was officially released from the Stockton Kings the same day as his arrest.

The FBI’s investigation is focused on uncovering the truth behind Rodgers’ disappearance and providing answers for her loved ones. As the case progresses, more information will be revealed in court.
