An NBA G League player was arrested by FBI agents in connection to the mysterious disappearance of a 23-year-old Washington medical assistant in Las Vegas

Chance Comanche, 27, was booked into the Sacramento County Jail after a warrant for first-degree kidnapping was issued on Friday.

He was released from the Stockton Kings, a developmental affiliate of the Sacramento Kings, shortly after his arrest.

Marayna Rodgers, who is from Washington, vanished on Dec. 6 when she was on a trip to visit Sin City and got into a car with her friend, Sakari Harnden, 19, according to KLAS.

Comanche played a G League game in Henderson, Nevada, 15 miles from Las Vegas, the night before Rodgers was last seen and reported missing.

The Post has reached out to the Kings organization and NBA.

Harnden was arrested in Las Vegas on Dec. 13 and booked into downtown Las Vegas Jail, also on a first-degree kidnapping charge, KLAS reported, citing court records.

A criminal complaint accused Harnden of “detaining Rogers against her will and without her consent for the purpose of killing her and/or inflicting bodily harm,” according to the outlet.

Harnden was also arrested on a theft charge for allegedly stealing a Rolex.

Rodgers’ family and friends called her disappearance mysterious.

She “had a good job and she would never leave her family back home in Washington state or abandon her dogs she had taken with her to Las Vegas,” loved ones told the outlet.

It is not known how long Comanche was in Las Vegas.

Harnden remains in jail on a $500,000 bail the next day by Las Vegas Justice Court Judge Diana Sullivan under conditions that included high-level electric monitoring and will appear in court on Dec. 19 for the theft charge, and Dec. 28 for the kidnapping.
