New Search for Harrington
posted 01/12/10 2:11 am
Charlottesville, VA - The parents of missing Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington will once again organize a volunteer, community search for their daughter.

Volunteers will meet between 9:00 and 10:00AM at the U-Hall next to John Paul Jones Arena. The searches will continue until approximately 3:00 PM. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and are encouraged to wear warm, comfortable clothing, as well as orange or yellow vests for safety. The Jefferson Area Crime Stoppers  (web) has established a $100,000 reward for information leading to the location and recovery of Morgan. The band Metallica also has added an additional $50,000 reward.

Harrington family presses on in search for daughter
Tuesday, January 12, 2010; 2:59 PM | 1 | ShareThis | Print
by Gordon Block, Liana Bayne, ct news staff
Dan and Gil Harrington, the parents of missing Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington, believe their daughter is still alive and potentially in the Charlottesville area.

The Harringtons spoke to reporters Tuesday afternoon outside the John Paul Jones arena in Charlottesville, the same location where Morgan was last seen in October while attending a Metallica concert. Several eyewitnesses reported seeing her in various spots around the arena as she left the concert, and she was last spotted near the Copeley Road Bridge less than a half mile away from the arena.

Dan Harrington said he believes the party involved with Morgan’s disappearance may be in the area.

“Whoever took Morgan is still in this community. This is still a vulnerable community,” he said.

The Harringtons met with Charlottesville area law enforcement Tuesday along with Monica Caison, the founder and director of the Community United Effort Center for Missing Persons, an organization from Wilmington, North Carolina.

Caison’s professional search team hopes to increase the search area as well as re-visit areas previously searched by volunteers and law enforcement. Caison added that she hopes a search can begin in February.

Dan Harrington praised ongoing volunteer efforts in the Charlottesville area, saying he had been pleased with both law enforcement and volunteer responses to his daughter’s disappearance.
“I think there are ongoing efforts here,” he said. “We will encourage them to continue that.”

Harrington also spoke about the recent confirmation that his daughter had consumed alcohol the night of the concert.

“Alcohol use among college students is typical, but her behavior was described as not typical,” Harrington said. “None of this makes sense.”

Harrington said that his greatest fear, three months after their daughter’s disappearance, “is that Morgan be forgotten.”

“Having a hole in your life that’s unfilled, it’s very painful,” Harrington said. “No one should have to go through that.”

A $150,000 reward is offered for information leading to the location and recovery of Harrington. Anyone with information is asked to call Virginia State Police at 434-352-3467.

Weekend Harrington Search Canceled
Posted: Jan 12, 2010 2:31 PM CST Updated: Jan 12, 2010 2:34 PM CST

Morgan Harrington's parents were back in Charlottesville Tuesday talking with police. Dan and Gil Harrington got an update on the search for their daughter.

Morgan vanished during a concert at the John Paul Jones Arena on October 17.

A search slated for January 16-17 has been canceled because of the snow on the ground but the Harringtons hope it will be rescheduled.

"It helps at least cover areas either that have been searched or areas that have not been searched," said Dan Harrington.

A benefit concert is still scheduled for Saturday at the Hat Factory in Richmond.

If you have information that can help police, call 434-352-3467.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - A North Carolina-based group is joining the search for a Virginia Tech student who vanished after attending a Metallica concert in Charlottesville.

Morgan Harrington's parents announced the participation of Community United Effort - Center for Missing Persons at a news conference Tuesday.

Founder Monica Caison says the organization relies on professional search and rescue teams that volunteer to look for missing persons and works closely with police and community search teams.

Harrington disappeared on Oct. 17. Police say the 20-year-old Roanoke woman became separated from friends after she left the concert arena and was denied re-entry.

IIRC, this is the same group helping with the Brittanee Drexel search.

Now that's the kind of subtlety I have come to know and love Edward..

I predicted this about 2 weeks ago. It is the start of the divide between LE and the Harrington's for lack of progress.

I actually think there may be a break in this case soon. I sincerely hope so, anyway.

Search Organization Joins Hunt for Missing Metallica Fan Morgan Harrington
Posted on Jan 13th 2010 12:30PM by Chris Harris
The parents of missing Metallica fan Morgan Harrington held a press conference on Jan. 12 to update the public on the search for their daughter, who hasn't been seen since Oct. 17, when the 20-year-old Virginia Tech student vanished from a Metallica concert in Charlottesville, Va. The Harringtons warned local residents that their daughter's case proves the Charlottesville area is not as safe as some may like to think it is.

The Harringtons also revealed that the CUE Center for Missing Persons, a nonprofit that aids in the search for missing children, had agreed to join the hunt for their daughter. The CUE Center, according to reports, will review previous police and community search tactics to determine target areas for future search efforts.

"People don't just vanish," explained Dan Harrington, Morgan's father. "We believe someone saw Morgan. We believe someone took our daughter. Someone in this community was directly involved in her disappearance. It's important to realize that whoever took Morgan is still in this community and, because of that, Charlottesville and Albemarle County are not as safe as they were before Oct. 17."

Police have organized extensive searches of the Charlottesville area, and Monica Caison, who heads the CUE Center, said her organization will work police and community search teams to determine what steps should be taken next.
"It's going to take a few weeks to get everything together," Caison said. "Law enforcement has definitely been open to help and the community has done all they can do. Even if you have a lot of people searching, if they don't know what they're looking for, it's hard to find the right clues."

According to police, Harrington was drinking the night she vanished; she was separated from friends after using the bathroom, and ended up outside the concert arena, which has a no re-entry policy. Police think Harrington may have been drugged or suffered a head injury. She was last seen on a nearby railroad bridge, and police believe she was last seen hitchhiking. The police have asked the public to report behavioral changes in anyone who may have attended the concert, or if they notice anyone showing abnormal interest in Morgan's disappearance.

"We need to find our daughter," Dan Harrington said. "Her being missing puts a hole in our lives that goes unfilled. No one should ever have to go through this."

Harringtons: Area not as safe as you think
By Bryan McKenzie
Published: January 13, 2010
Updated: January 13, 2010
The parents of missing Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington have invited a North Carolina-based search organization to help locate their daughter and warned Tuesday that the 20-year-old’s Oct. 17 disappearance means the Charlottesville area is not as safe as residents may believe.

Dan Harrington, Morgan Harrington’s father, gave the warning during a news conference to announce that the CUE Center for Missing Persons has agreed to help in the search for his daughter.

The nonprofit center will review previous police and community searches to determine target areas for future efforts.

“People don’t just vanish,” Harrington said. “We believe someone saw Morgan. We believe someone took our daughter. Someone in this community was directly involved in her disappearance. It’s important to realize that whoever took Morgan is still in this community and, because of that, Charlottesville and Albemarle County are not as safe as they were before Oct. 17.”
Police from Albemarle County, the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, the Albemarle County Sheriff’s Office and the Virginia State Police have searched areas across the county. Community searches have scoured areas around the arena and other sites.

Monica Caison, of the CUE Center, said her organization relies on professional search and rescue teams that volunteer to look for missing persons. The organization works closely with police and community search teams to help determine what steps should be taken next, she said.

“It’s going to take a few weeks to get everything together,” Caison said. “Law enforcement has definitely been open to help and the community has done all they can do. Even if you have a lot of people searching, if they don’t know what they’re looking for, it’s hard to find the right clues.”

Morgan Harrington vanished during a Metallica concert at the John Paul Jones Arena. She became separated from friends after she left the arena and was denied re-entry.

According to information released by the state police, Morgan Harrington had reportedly been drinking and may have been drugged or suffered a head injury. She was last seen on the Copeley Road railroad bridge near the arena at about 9:30 p.m., perhaps hitchhiking.

Police ask that anyone who might know what happened to Morgan but might be holding back because of fear of prosecution to contact them. They also ask people to report behavioral changes in anyone who attended the concert, or if they notice anyone showing abnormal interest in the disappearance.

Harrington said police reports of his daughter’s behavior the night of her disappearance are not in keeping with her personality. He noted, however, that drinking is common among college students, especially those attending concerts. He also said the family has been pleased with police efforts to date.
“We’ve had nothing but complete cooperation, competence and coordinated efforts between the [departments],” he said.

A host of benefactors has allowed Crimestoppers to offer a reward of more than $150,000 for information leading to her location. The Harringtons have also worked hard to keep their missing daughter in the public eye, appearing on a variety of television shows and in newspaper and magazine articles.

Their daughter’s plight has been the subject of floats in holiday parades, organized community searches, blogs and Internet Web sites.

“We need to find our daughter,” Harrington said. “Her being missing puts a hole in our lives that goes unfilled. No one should ever have to go through this.”

Harrington is 5-feet-6-inches tall and weighs about 120 pounds. She was last seen wearing a black T-shirt with “Pantera” written across the front in tan letters, a black miniskirt, black tights and black boots. She was also wearing a Swarovski crystal necklace with a chain-link design that her brother had given her.

Police ask anyone with information to call 434-352-3467 or e-mail bci-appomattox@vsp.virginia.gov .

Search Continues For Missing Virginia Tech Student

Thursday, Jan 14, 2010 @09:26am CST

(Charlottesville, VA) -- A North Carolina-based non-profit search organization is joining the search for a missing Virginia Tech student.

Morgan Harrington was last seen back on October 17th outside a Metallica concert at the University of Virginia.

The CUE Center for Missing Persons plans to scour areas that have already been searched in an effort to determine future areas that should be targeted.

The organization then relies on professional search and rescue teams who volunteer their time to look for missing people.

State Police say Harrington had been drinking and may have been drugged or suffered a head injury.

She was last seen on a railroad bridge near the arena.

Harrington's father says his daughter's disappearance proves the Charlottesville area isn't as safe as some people want to believe.

But he also says police have been doing everything possible to find his daughter.

Parents Of Missing METALLICA Fan Interviewed By WHSV NEWS 3 - Jan. 18, 2010
Dan and Gil Harrington, the parents of 20-year-old Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington spoke with Ed Drantch from HSV News 3. Watch the report below.

Morgan Harrington disappeared three months ago from outside METALLICA's concert in Charlottesville, Virginia. Virginia State Police investigators said in a press conference last month that Harrington is either being held against her will or is no longer alive. They also revealed new information in the case, including the fact that the 20-year-old was drinking alcohol the night she disappeared. They are also looking for Harrington's missing red digital camera, according to NBC29. Investigators say they are confident she got in a car after her last sighting on the Copeley Street Bridge at 9:30 that night, and that whoever took her, may be starting to show the strain of it.

If you have information that can help police, call them at the hotline dedicated to this case. That number is 434-352-3467.
