Police in Virginia say they are confident skeletal remains found on a farm are likely those of a Virginia Tech student who disappeared in October.

The remains were found this morning by a farmer surveying his land. State police say an autopsy will determine whether they are those of 20-year-old Morgan Harrington.

Harrington vanished October 17th after attending a Metallica concert at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville. She was separated from her friends after she left the concert and was not allowed to reenter.

Police say the arena is about 10 miles away from the farm where the remains were found.
