Metallica Offers Reward For Missing Fan

| Filed under: Music MinuteSad Sad

After a young fan and Virginia Tech student, Morgan Harrington, went missing during one of their concerts on October 17, Metallica is now adding $50,000 to the reward being offered for her safe return.

Harrington's parents have already announced a $100,000 reward for her return or information leading to the arrest of the party responsible for her disappearance.

In addition to the campaign website FindMorgan.com, Metallica also put a plea up on their official website asking fans to look at their video and photographic footage from the concert to see if she can be seen along with this description:

"Morgan has blond 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 ID or a cell phone. Morgan was separated from her friends shortly before 9:00 pm at the venue."

Sad, sad.

We hope Morgan is found soon!

  12. 12

    So sad, I hope she's found safe and unharmed.

  14. 14

    omg thats so sad. Metallica is awesome and this made me love them even more.
    I hope she's okay



  15. 15

    Black mini skirt and thigh high boots? And you wonder why she is missing?



  16. 16

    Hat's off to Metallica



  17. 17

    are you implying that rape is dependent on what the girl/woman is wearing?



  18. 18

    Re: PhillipP – you are an asshole!!!!!!!!!



  19. 19

    Those people commenting on her attire should be ashamed. It was a concert - a METALLICA concert - what should she have been wearing? A burka?



  20. 20

    Right, its sad but let this chick be some minority and who would actually give a Sh**. Seriously!



  21. 21

    Re: PhillipP – Knee high black boots you fucking idiot. That's average boot height. Get a grip you fuckers and forget about what she was wearing at a METALLICA SHOW.



  22. 22

    Re: joiedevivre – thank you. bunch of negative assholes.



  23. 23

    she probably was drunk and fuck her or being a slut



  24. 24

    i hope they find her!!



  25. 25

    I have loved Metallica for more years than I would like to admit. Anyone who has been a true fan knows that Metallica has always appreciated their fans. I am very confident that they would have stepped up regardless of what she looked like, race, weight, whatever. I would hope that this girl is found alive, however given the circumstances I doubt it.



  26. 26

    Though its nice Metallica is helping with the reward why was she wearing a pantera tshirt to a metallica concert?



  27. 27

    Thank you for posting this Perez. 2 4 1



  28. 28

    Re: Manay – Your are an ignorant ass hat.



  29. 29

    Re: PhillipP – Fuck you asshole



  30. 30

    very sad. i hope she is found safe.



  31. 31

    kid i love you. i think you're overeacting about two days worth of me just saying let it be. i'm paranoid cuz i couldn't believe you'd ever love me after all i did. thats all that is its not jealousy its the opposite of jealousy



  32. 32

    Re: katerbugg13 – And the girl is probably dead



  33. 33

    This is so sad. I go to VT and the entire community — the campus and the town of blacksburg, even up to Roanoke — cares about her. No matter her gender, what she was wearing, or what her ethnicity is. I get daily emails asking for information as to her whereabouts. I have friends who know her, she was in one of my classes. Virginia Tech has faced enough tragedy, she shouldn't be another one. I am so glad the Metallica is supporting their missing fan this way. I hope she is found and isn't just a missing girl forever.



  34. 34

    Re: sleezy*e – She should have been in sensible oxfords at home reading her bible and praising Jesus.



  35. 35

    took you long enough to post something. i hope they find her!
    *side note….does virgina tech have some kind of curse? i mean damn…*

  36. kmm:) says – reply to this


    36

    It doesn't matter what this girl was wearing to the concert. No matter what, her being kidnapped is a horrible thing. I hope she's found. And to her family and friends, my thought are with you.



  37. 37

    Prayers for her safe return.
    Good of the band to do this.



  38. 38

    Re: PhillipP – What the hell is wrong with you?



  39. 39

    Re: shaismedia – i agree with you!! Have you ever noticed that the only people you ever hear about missing on the news are the white ones?? think about it….why is that??? doesn't make sense to me…..



  40. 40

    thank you perez for posting this. i hope they find her.



  41. 41

    Hopefully she is found safe and alive…her family must be in such a panic. To all of you who commented on her attire/looks…sure, she is a beautiful girl, but nobody should be a target, regardless of how they look, their race, what they are wearing and so on…nobody deserves that, no matter what the circumstance. I hope they find her soon.



  42. 42

    damn whats the deal with that school???



  43. 43

    Re: xmichyx – Yep and let's see, what are the options? Human trafficking, satanic cults, serial killer and every disgusting thing that we don't know about, quite yet. I hope she comes out the rarity and returns home to her loved ones. I say the same prayer for all those that are currently suffering where no one can readily help.

  44. 6one9 says – reply to this


    44

    That's some crazy shit!!! I hope they find this chick““` Metallica R0CKS!!!!



  45. 45

    Re: olivia85 – If she were black nobody would even care if she were missing. If she were black she would have never been at a Metallica Concert, she would be at a Hip Hop concert.



  46. 46

    Why do so many bad incidents happen with Virginia Tech students?! That's really creepy. I hope they find her.



  47. 47

    This is PR bullshit. The only reason they're donating is because she's a blond, college educated, white chick from Virginia. If this had happened to an average-educated, minority chick from Oakland they wouldn't give a shit. If they really gave a shit, they would donate their big bucks to the any of the multitude of missing persons organizations, and not the token newsworthy story of the week.



  48. 48

    I hope she's found soon :(



  49. 49

    Re: PhillipP – Um I didnt say anything about race, but you know, way to reinforce stereotypes. I was responding to your lack of compassion and general rudeness



  50. 50

    Re: olivia85 – Bite me!



  51. 51

    Re: insertsobriquet – I go to VT and the reason that you hear so much about VT students is because of what happened a couple of years ago. Tragedies happen on every college campus around the country. I feel exceedingly safe here. For the most part, these tragic events are not related to the university, with the exception of the victims.



  52. 52

    Wow! I hope they find her! I was watching a show on Teenage Slave trade on E! today and I saw that and almost cried to what happens to these teenagers. I hope shes at least safe.



  53. 53

    metallica sucksssssss sooooo hardddddd



  54. 54

    1) I live in Va and I can tell you, race doesn't matter when it comes to a missing person. Sometimes they don't report on white people missing, my brother's friend was abducted during the day outside her work in Richmond and was found a few days later dead, but she was never in the news. They take stories as they come. 2) I can't believe her friends would let her go to the bathroom alone. Basic concert rule, don't go off by yourself. I feel for her family and friends and everyone at Tech. My brother goes there and they just can't seem to catch a break when it comes to tragedy. I hope they find out something soon.



  55. 55

    Virginia Tech is cursed



  56. 56

    sad but true
    hopefully she´ll be found alive
    Metallica rocks ! i looove them, one of the greatest bands of all times



  57. 57

    virginia tech is cursed. hope they found her



  58. 58

    Re: PhillipP – I guess you couldnt think of an intelligent rebuttle. And no thanks.



  59. 59

    Thank you for posting this, Perez. Morgan and I graduated high school together, and we both now go to VT. We miss you, Morgan, please come home. 2-4-1.



  60. 60

    this is so sad i hope they find her safe. ever since i heard about this story i can't stop thinking about it :(



  61. 61

    hope she appears soon, my toughs are with her and her family



  62. 62

    this is what i heard: she left because she wasnt feeling well, so she went to step out in between songs to get some fresh air. obviously if you leave a venue, you cannot get back in, so she was stuck outside alone. she didnt have a car and did not know the area very well. that is the last anyone saw of her.



  63. 63

    Some of these comments make me sick. This girl is my good friend's childhood friend, and I have been keeping up with this story since it happened. Her friends and family are obviously having such a hard time right now and for anyone to comment about her clothing/appearance in a nasty way is just idiotic. Yeah, people go missing every single day but her friends and family are putting in LOTS of effort to make this national. So thank you, Perez, for stickin' this up on your site. It helps so much.



  64. 64

    hmm.. wonder how involved Metallica would be if it was ugly fat chick that went missing instead of a hot blonde



  65. 65

    Re: PhillipP
    Im black and I love Metallica. I dont hear any hip hop, I find it stupid and repetitive.
    Thanx god that in the country where I live in, everybody is equal.



  66. 66

    a lot of these comments are making me sick. Frankly the friends and family are making a hell of an effort to get the word out to as many places as possible to find this girl.
    I hope all the efforts manage to find her safe and sound.



  67. 67

    Ok people first off VA Tech is NOT cursed…..it didn't even make the list of the top ten most dangerous campuses this year or even the year the shootings happened….you can't take one incident out of the 137 yrs that the university has been opened and say that it's cursed. I lived there for almost 9yrs and NOT once did I ever feel threatened or unsafe….so get over it and move on b/c the community has. Your more likely to get robbed or assaulted at Harvard and yet no one says that school is cursed. As for the missing student…no matter what you wear does not justify violence or rape in ANY way shape or form….stop being a**holes and realize that there is a family greaving and scared of where their daughter is and what's happened to her…just think if that was your mother, sister or friend would you want anyone calling her those foul things and saying she deserves it for wearing boots!!! Come on!! Have compassion and hope that this has a good outcome!



  68. 68

    let us all think about what else we can do to help find this girl
    (instead of hating)



  69. 69

    So sad. I hope she is home safely very soon. My thoughts are with her family and firends. Such a cary situation- I can't even imagine. I pray for her speedy return home.



  70. 70

    That's classy of Metallica to do that.



  71. 71

    I really hope she´s found soon



  72. 72

    oh jesus… Virginia Tech again?
    going to that school must be like living in a horror movie.
    I don't care how many people say its safe I will be avoiding that place like the plague.
    but this is sad and I hope she safe and found soon.



  73. 73

    this isn't a game. you know who this is, exactly where he is. surrounded by everything you know. i was so shocked today. i coulnd't believe u'd think what you did. i did everything to protect you until this weekend when i gave you everyting and i needed two days to get over the fact that i just sent a message to the one person that mattered in the world that'd i'd never think i'd get the chance to. you couldn't look into my eyes and tell me all these things. why would you think after the sweetest thing i've ever done for you that i would want you to hurt. i was just afraid, how gay was i the necklace, the cds, the tears, the poems, why would i disapear to hurt you. you never understood that disapearing meant it was ok



  74. 74

    Re: xqueenx – "going to that school must be like living in a horror movie. I don't care how many people say its safe I will be avoiding that place like the plague." Funny, but true.

    Re: Marilynlover82

    You are white you stupid bitch. And no one cares about blacks or spics cause they are killed in gangwars all the time. This actually means something.



  76. 76

    I hope they find her. Even if she went outside, people always loiter outside of concerts. I like to think that someone saw something.



  77. 77

    are u serious? what year are you living in? are you going to blame her for how she is dressed?



  78. 78

    Re: tom951 – LOL wow you people think of some random ass shit. How in your "right" mind would you automatically think "oh if she was fat Metallica wouldn't care"…upon reading that? lol wtf…



  79. 79

    =(
    hope shes ok

  81. 81

    Re: PhillipP – so you're saying she deserved it then? Prick!



  82. 82

    this is not about her clothes or weight!! cummon!! this is one of my closest friends sister and this ain't no joking matter. if you know anything then speak out. x



  83. 83

    What a great gesture! Hope she's found safe!



  84. 84

    Some crazy people out there, i think some of them are writing these comments too!! I hope she is found and safe, that's all that matters!!!



  85. 85

    So all these guys commenting on her outfit, does that mean when you see a girl wearing something like that YOU would RAPE/KIDNAP them???

    you are a bunch of sick sick pervs

    Re: IThinkYouAreRacist – I haven heard the word spic in years. How old are you 60?



  89. 89

    I think it's weird that this story follows a story bout a band called fandeath and a song called reunited…



  90. 90

    Re: the1 u luv 2 h8!

    No, that's not what "they're" saying. She thought she had the right to return after stepping outside for air & the JPA 'staff', which is made up of a lot old, retired volunteers who probably get a discount ticket to a UVA football game for their time, decided to leave a young woman outside when she wanted back in (which a lot of stadiums do allow exit/reenter at certain exits for smoking, etc). Personally, I blame the staff b/c I know first hand that they get a MAJOR false sense of entitlement with their "job" at JPA. If they didn't want to let her back into the show, they should have let her wait in a lighted area inside - turning her away like that is violation #1 of what campus police preach at every college. What I think is funny is everyone is like, "VT, VT, VT, omg, omg, omg"… I'd be freaking out if I was a UVA student since JPA sits on my campus.



  91. 91

    Poor girl, I hope they found her!



  92. 92

    She wasn't of legal drinking age…she probably never was going to the bathroom to begin with. She proably went outside on purpose to get her buzz on before the show. I do think it's is true that she wasn't able to get back in b/c every show I've ever been too, there is no re-entrance. Whether or not she forgot her ticket stub, I just don't know if or how that matters? I really hope she is okay :) It's pretty scary how many people go missing everyday.

    Re: PhillipP —- yuu know charmas a BITCH! n i REALLY REALLY hope your thwe next person we see a missing photo of !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  94. 94

    What the hell is up with Virginia Tech?! They have crazy crap happening every month it seems. If I were still in college I would completely avoid ever going there.



  95. 95

    This makes me really upset, because I sent a link to Perez regarding another missing girl. She is in NY and doesn't remember who she is or how she got there or how long she has been there, and yet he passed right over that missing girl. It's disgusting how America only wants to save the young, pretty, white girls. —coming from a young white girl.



  96. 96

    Re: .t.z. – Learn how to spell idiot. It is karma not charmas. Put down the beer and the bucket of KFC, turn off the Real Housewives of Atlanta, and get your GED.



  97. 97

    uhhhhh some of these comments are absolutely disgusting!! whether or not she is white& pretty, she is still MISSING and her family&friends are having a horrible time as i can imagine. lay off the idiotic comments and help find her! i go to uva where she went missing and my thoughts are with her and her family :(



  98. 98

    also, perez, thanks for posting this bb :)



  99. 99

    I'm a VT grad and live near C'ville. It does seem like VT is having its fair share of tragedy in the past couple of years :(

    I really hope Morgan turns up, but to be honest I don't think it's very likely that anyone will find her alive. :(

    Oh, and the report about her trying to find a bathroom and finding herself outside the arena was a false report…they're not disclosing all of the info, for investigative purposes.



  100. 100

    how can tech be cursed when this happened at uva!?
