The suspect accused of abducting University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, is now back in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Jesse Matthew was handed over to officials from the Virginia Sheriff's department Friday afternoon after being arrested in Galveston, Texas Wednesday. According to police, Matthew was the last person to see Hannah 13 days ago.

Since her disappearance, police have received thousands of tips, while search teams scour over 700 square miles for the missing 18-year-old student.
