Police today issued an appeal to people who attended Saturday’s Metallica concert in Charlottesville, to check videos or photos in case they contain images of a missing Virginia Tech student.

Morgan Dana Harrington, 20, was last seen at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville.

A friend who accompanied the Virginia Tech junior said Harrington left the arena before Metallica came onstage and did not rejoin the people she came with. Her purse and cell phone were later found outside.

Amanda Melvin said Harrington’s car, in which she traveled to the concert, was still in the parking lot.

Police said Harrington was wearing a black T-shirt with “Pantera” across the front in tan letters, a black mini skirt, black tights and black knee-high boots. She has long blonde hair and blue eyes, is 5ft 6 ins and weighs about 120 pounds.

Her father Dan Harrington, who lives in Roanoke, said: “Morgan is a pretty transparent kid, who’s had a really close relationship with us. I don’t think there are lots of secrets, so this kind of behavior is not something I think we would expect.”

Virginia State Police Lt Joe Rader said investigators are treating the disappearance as a missing person case.

“We have no evidence that a crime has been committed,” he said.

Meanwhile, police are following up on dozens of tips and continuing to canvas the area around the arena.

Harrington graduated in 2007 from Lord Botetourt High School and is majoring in education.
