Chance Comanche, an NBA G League player with the Stockton Kings, has been charged with kidnapping a 23-year-old woman in Las Vegas on Dec. 6.

The Kings released Comanche, 27, after his arrest for first-degree felony kidnapping of Marayna Rodgers of Washington, who was on a trip with friends. He is currently in jail being held without bail.

Rodgers reportedly got into a car with 19-year-old Sakari Harnden, who is also charged in the case. Harnden is being held on $500,000 bail.

Comanche was in Henderson, Nevada the night before the kidnapping to play a basketball game against a developmental team.

A criminal complaint said that Harnden detained her without her consent in order to kill her or cause bodily harm.

Rodgers is still missing, and it is not clear what happened to her. Comanche was present in Portland, Oregon for another G League game on Dec. 7.
