Police Still Seeking Public’s Help in Locating Missing Person
RICHMOND – Virginia State Police and University of Virginia (UVA) Police are following up on numerous leads regarding the joint investigation into the disappearance and whereabouts of a Virginia Tech student.
Local and state police have been searching for Morgan Dana Harrington, 20, of Roanoke County, Va., since she was reported missing by her parents Sunday, Oct. 18, 2009. Miss Harrington was last seen Saturday night, Oct. 17, 2009. On Saturday, Miss Harrington and a friend had traveled from Virginia Tech to James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Va., to meet up with a friend. They then traveled to John Paul Jones Arena at UVA in Charlottesville, Va., to attend a music concert that same evening.
During the course of the concert, she became separated from her friends and was unable to reunite with them. Miss Harrington was last seen wearing a black T-shirt with “Pantera” written on the front in tan letters. She also had on a black mini-skirt with black tights and knee-high black boots. She is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs approximately 120 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes. Miss Harrington does not have an identification or her cell phone with her.
Miss Harrington is currently a junior at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va., majoring in education.The public is still encouraged to call or e-mail with any information concerning Miss Harrington and/or her whereabouts. Virginia State Police can be reached (434) 352-3435 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. UVA Police can be reached at (434) 924-7166.
Lt. Rader says police have interviewed Morgan’s friends as well as people who saw Morgan either inside JPJ or outside the arena. They can confirm that Morgan was on the grounds outside JPJ until at least 9:30pm Saturday night. Police say Morgan exited the concert for reasons unknown and due to the John Paul Jones arena policy, was not allowed to re-enter the venue. Police have confirmed that Morgan contacted her friends while she was outside the arena to let them know she would be unable to re-enter the concert, which was the last known contact Morgan had with her friends.
I hope the police find her soon.
