    WSLS sat down with Harrington’s pastor, Rev. Diane Scribner Clevenger, who lives with the Harrington family in their Roanoke County home.

    She says police first contacted the family Sunday morning after finding Morgan Harrington’s purse in the parking lot of John Paul Jones Arena.

    “Her phone was in there,“ she said. “It was odd the battery had been removed.“

    Rev. Scribner Clevenger says Harrington’s parents left Monday morning from their Roanoke County home to travel to Charlottesville. They took some of her belongings along with them to help with the search.

    Those living and working near the John Paul Arena may see various police activity in the immediate area today. State and university police have been canvassing the area since Monday to make sure nothing is out of the ordinary and no additional evidence may have been overlooked. Such activity may resume at various times Tuesday. A state police spokesperson says they will use a helicopter again.

    Anyone who may have been videoing or taking pictures (on a cell phone) of the Metallica concert or audience/crowds that evening are asked to review such video for anyone who might resemble Miss Harrington and contact state police or UVA police.

    “There is a very empty place, a Morgan-shaped place in our hearts as well as our home right now,“ Morgan’s mother Gil Harington said.

    “She came here to get ready for this concert that she was excited about,” Gil Harrington said. “She tried on the three outfits she had whittled it down to, and we made a selection [of which] one was the best.“

    The Harrington’s say they have spoken with Morgan’s friends who went with her to see Metallica Saturday night. Her parents still aren’t sure why she left the concert. They say Morgan’s friends waited around for her for several hours after the concert before they drove back to Harrisonburg where they were staying.

    Thousands have seen she’s missing through the Facebook site.

    “Last I saw, there was over 8,000 people just really getting a lot of back and forth, saying they’ll keep an eye open, saying ‘Here are some places that definitely might be helpful to check out,’” Booker said.

    He explains Morgan is an independent woman, but he’s still upset.
    “I know she can take care of herself, but at the same time, I’m just really worried about what other influences there might be that could be keeping her from doing that,” he said.

    Booker ends his Facebook status with these words.

    “We just want her found safe.“

    She had gone to the concert with Amy Melvin, her roommate in Blacksburg, and another friend from James Madison University. Harrington drove.

    Melvin said Harrington went outside before Metallica took the stage. She said she wasn't sure why.

    "Everyone assumed she'd be coming back," said Amanda Melvin, Amy Melvin's older sister and a friend of Harrington's. Friends and family still haven't heard from Harrington, she said.

    Amanda Melvin said Harrington's purse and cell phone were found outside the stadium and her car was still in the parking lot. She said Harrington wouldn't abandon her friends there.

    Have You Seen Morgan?
    <snipped>
    "Morgan is a pretty transparent kid, who's had a really close relationship with us," her father, Dan Harrington, said in a phone interview Tuesday with the Associated Press. "I don't think there are lots of secrets, so this kind of behavior of (her) missing is not something I think we would expect."

    Amy Melvin, her roommate in Blacksburg, Va. told The Roanoke Times Harrington went outside the stadium before Metallica went on stage, but she wasn't sure why.

    "Everyone assumed she'd be coming back, " Amanda Melvin, Amy Melvin's older sister told the newspaper. "Sitting here while Morgan is out there missing isn't a very good feeling,"

    Harrington drove to the concert and her car was still in parking lot after, the newspaper reported.

    The opening act of the concert took the stage at 7 p.m. Saturday. Police say just before 8:40 p.m. Harrington left the concert to have a cigarette outside but left her ticket inside. Friends in the arena phoned her and she said not to wait up for her and that she'd find her own ride home. That was the last time anyone spoke with Harrington.

    Dan Harrington, who lives in Roanoke, Va., said his daughter had asked him to help her study for a math test and go through the class schedule for next semester on Sunday. He called her friends around 12:30 p.m. when he realized he had not heard from her.

    Here's the plea that Metallica posted under the heading:

    "One of our fans is missing."

    "We are deeply concerned about the disappearance of 20 year old Virginia Tech student Morgan Dana Harrington, who was last seen while attending our concert at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville, VA, on Saturday night.

    "Morgan has blonde hair and blue eyes, is 5'6", 120 lbs., and was wearing a black PANTERA T-shirt, black skirt, and black boots. She was not carrying I.D. or a cell phone. Morgan was separated from her friends shortly before 9pm at the venue. Police have been searching the area since Monday.

    "We encourage anyone who has any information regarding Morgan's disappearance to please come forward. Additionally, if you or anyone you know shot video footage or took photos of the concert or audience, please check to see if there is anyone in your photos who might resemble Morgan.

    "Our thoughts are with Morgan and her family for her safe return."

    Harrington went missing Saturday night while attending a concert at John Paul Jones Arena. Investigators also confirmed Wednesday that they have Harrington's cell phone and purse.

    A ground search of UVA, JPJ and surrounding athletic fields wrapped up at 4pm Wednesday. Police say a three day search of those areas has not turned up any clues. Video surveillance footage has also been reviewed.

    Morgan’s mystery: What happened outside arena?
    6:15pm Wednesday Oct 21, 2009
    <snipped>
    “Witnesses and conversations” indicate that missing Virginia Tech student Morgan Dana Harrington– who left a concert in search of a bathroom– spent the hour between 8:30pm and 9:30pm Saturday outdoors near the John Paul Jones Arena, a time when the performance by Metallica, according to the venue manager, was underway.

    Rader attemped to dispel concerns that the missing 20-year-old was under the influence of any substances but did confirm that Harrington merely intended to go to the bathroom when she found herself outside the Arena and, consequently, barred from reentry by Arena policy.


    Rader also confirmed– in a stunning parallel to the 1985 disappearance of never-found UVA student Pat Collins– that the Sunday morning discovery of Harrington’s purse by a bystander in a small parking area didn’t immediately launch a criminal investigation.

    The purse was found in a small parking lot between JPJ and the athletic fields. Rader said State Police are not yet ready to disclose or talk about phone records at this time.

    There will likely be a $50,000 or more reward for any information about the current missing person investigation. Details will be available tomorrow.

    Ground and air search called off for missing Virginia Tech student

    At a news conference in Charlottesville Wednesday afternoon, investigators said they believe that Harrington was on the grounds of the John Paul Jones Arena (JPJA) until at least 9:30 p.m. this past Saturday.

    Investigators said a passer-by found Harrington’s purse between the arena, and the UVA athletic fields in a small parking lot. Investigators said they not find signs of a struggle, but are treating the case as a criminal investigation.

    Police also said they checked surveillance video from JPJA and the surrounding area, but it has not helped their investigation.

    This is the JPJ Arena, the brick structure, and you can see the athletic field as well. I gave you two vantage points cuz I knew you'd want to see both sides.

    Investigators say Harrington’s trip to UVA’s John Paul Jones Arena this past Saturday began with her and her friends driving to Harrisonburg, where they picked up more friends.

    The group then drove Morgan’s car to the arena in Charlottesville for the Metallica concert.

    After the concert started, but before Metallica took the stage, Police say Harrington went to the bathroom. Somehow Morgan ended up outside the arena, and she was not allowed back inside due to a “no re-entry” policy for the concert.

    Police say 8:30 p.m. Saturday is the last contact that Harrington had with her friends. Investigators say Morgan told her friends that she would either wait for them, or get home safely. Police say Morgan’s friends had no reason to believe that wasn’t the case.

    According to police, Morgan’s friends drove Harrington’s car back to Harrisonburg, and spent the night there.

    Friends, family gather to pray for Morgan Harrington's safe return
    Thursday, October 22, 2009
    <snipped>
    Harrington's mother, Gil Harrington, explained to the crowd that her daughter used a message special to their family when she said goodbye to them. She'd used it Saturday afternoon before Morgan, who had been a student at Northside during her high school years, disappeared during a Metallica concert in Charlottesville.

    The message -- "I love you too much ... forever ... and once more" -- was symbolized on purple T-shirts that close friends and family members wore to Thursday night's vigil.

    Gil Harrington explained. Two dots mean: "I love you too much." Four dots mean: "Forever." One dot means: "And once more."

    One U.Va graduate who was the concert tells News 7 he remembers seeing Morgan before the concert in the parking lot.

    "It was definitely her, I'm 100 percent certain of that," says Dave Gardner.

    Gardner is a 2005 U.Va grad who now works in New Jersey and came back to Charlottesville to see Metallica.

    "She pulled up with her party and got out of her parties car and kind of immediately engaged me and my brother and my cousin and my friend who were at the concert," says Gardner.

    Vigil unites supporters of missing Tech student

    Family pastor Diane Scribner Clevenger opened the ceremony in prayer for Harrington’s safe return. “This may not be a time we can wrap our minds around,” she said, “but this is a time we can wrap our hearts around.”

    While all in attendance had unique stories to tell, one theme was clear: Harrington’s closest circle of friends firmly believes she is alive and will be safely returned.

    Dan Harrington, Morgan’s father, said that his daughter was “not a person who was trying to run away from her family, friends, and life at Virginia Tech.”

    “I think Morgan was taken,” he said, “and if someone out there has her, please, let her go.”

    Lets just assume for a minute that she was totally sober. If she were then I would definitely have to say that she was abducted because no woman that I know would ever leave their purse. I know this sounds like I'm trying to be sarcastic but I'm not I'm just being honest as I see it.
    Edited to ask did we ever find out if the jacket story is true or not yet?

    I still haven't found any media links or any police statements regarding the jacket. That's a good question.

    As far as the purse, I agree. The fact it was thrown down in a parking lot, in what police called "in clear view" (or something along those lines..meaning it wasn't hidden) makes me think even more this was, unfortunately, an abduction.
