“missing” the point

Morgan Harrington went missing from a Metallica concert in mid-October in Charlottesville, Virginia. For more info visit

In November I made a little joke about a “MISSING” poster that I had seen while in Staunton, Virginia. The poster was for Morgan Harrington, a Virginia Tech student who went missing in mid-October, last seen at a Metallica concert in Charlottesville, Virginia. When I saw the poster she had been missing for just over a month. I joked that she had probably run away with the band.

Time has gone by, and Morgan Harrington has not been found. Also, Metallica has contributed a full $50,000 reward to anyone with information as to her whereabouts. It’s become pretty clear that this is no joke.

I am from Virginia. As a young woman I often went galavanting alone through the hills, valleys, and beaches of Virginia to visit friends, attend music festivals, and enjoy the great outdoors. Now that so much time has gone by and this young woman is still missing, it doesn’t seem like she is just off somewhere enjoying herself. I’m pretty disturbed by this kidnapping.
