Metallica Fan Still Missing, Police Continue To Search

On Saturday night (October 17), Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington traveled to the John Paul Jones Arena on the campus of the University of Virginia in Charlottesville with a group of friends to catch Metallica in concert. At some point, she got separated from her friends and hasn’t been seen since. State police continue to search for Harrington and say they have several leads, though they encourage anybody with information to reach out to the them at 434-924-7166 or via e-mail at appomattox@vsp.virginia.gov.

“We talk to her almost daily,” Harrington’s mother Jill said. “We need to know where she is and get her back home safe as soon as possible.”

Dan Harrington described this behavior from his daughter as “atypical.”

The 20-year-old Harrington was last seen wearing a black Pantera T-shirt and a black skirt. According to Lt. Joe Rader of the Virginia State Police, it’s unlikely that she is carrying identification or a cell phone.

Several friends have started a Facebook group to help spread the word about Harrington and to help gather information about her whereabouts.
