The parents of a missing Virginia Tech student are asking people to continue to share information with police. Morgan Dana Harrington has been missing since she went to a Metallica concert at the University of Virginia nearly two weeks ago. The 20 year old Tech student left the concert arena and was denied re-entry. Daniel and Jill Harrington of Roanoke said in a statement Thursday they are doing everything in their power to bring their daughter home. Police say witnesses saw someone matching her description in two nearby parking areas. She was last seen on a bridge that leads to a commercial area of Charlottesville.
