Metallica have appealed to the public for help finding a fan who has been missing since their concert in Virginia on Saturday (17Oct09).
Morgan Dana Harrington was attending the band's show at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville at the weekend when she became separated from her friends and disappeared.
The rockers are "deeply concerned" about the 20 year old - and have asked the public to help in the hunt for the Virginia Tech student.
A statement from the band reads, "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."
