GALVESTON, Tx. -- He ran, but he couldn't hide. The manhunt for Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., that started in Virginia, ended in Galveston. He is the man charged with the disappearance of University of Virgina sophomore Hannah Graham.

According to store clerks at Swede's Quick Stop on Crystal Beach, it was video surveillance taken from convenience store, that tipped off Galveston County Sheriff's deputies to Matthew's whereabouts. He was later arrested while camping out on a Bolivar Peninsula beach.

Thursday morning, a judge ordered Matthew to be held without bond pending his extradition to Virginia. By waving his extradition, Virginia authorities are clear to take him back to face charges of abduction with the intent to defile. 18-year-old Hannah has been missing since September 13, last seen at a mall with Matthew in Charlottesville, Virginia. Her whereabouts is still unknown.

Now, with Matthew heading back to Virginia to hopefully answer some questions, maybe the mystery of the missing student can be solved.
