Morgan Harrington was seen hitchhiking for a ride on the Copeley Road Bridge on the night of her disappearance, according to a police brief released Nov. 13.
After the 9:30 (p.m.) timeframe, we cant seem to establish any other sightings of her, said Corinne Geller, spokeswoman for the Virginia State Police.
It was also released in the brief that she was wearing a Swarovski Crystal necklace on that night.
Harrington might have received a ride or approached someone to borrow a cell phone, Geller said.
She was wearing it that night, Geller said. She dropped her purse and her cell phone, so maybe she might have dropped her necklace also.
Police reviewed individual witness claims to arrive at the new conclusions. Investigators are asking anybody that was on or near the Copeley Road Bridge and may have seen a woman hitchhiking to contact them at 434-352-3467.
The police are also looking for people who might have let Harrington use their cell phone that night.
These are all things relevant to developing any more information on the case and bring her home safely, Geller said.
The existing police timeline of Harringtons whereabouts includes leaving the arena around 8:30 p.m. and being sighted on the Copely Road Bridge near Ivy Road around 9:30 p.m.
Harrington disappeared Oct. 17 during a Metallica concert in the John Paul Jones Arena on the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville, Va.
A reward of $150,041 has been established for information that leads to Harringtons recovery.

Well the accompanying articles were certainly informative.
If there is a moral to this story it is that young women shouldn’t get drunk and disorderly and get themselves kicked out of rock concerts, then stumble around acting inappropriately with strange men, then try to hitchhike back to campus (while dressed provocatively).
Or has someone perhaps said that before?
“Or has someone perhaps said that before?”
Oh yeah, lots of times. But when you tell them that, most times they laugh. Usually they beat the odds, sometimes they don’t.
while you are moralizng, can you think of anything else with which to condemn this young woman whose body has yet to be found?
Bleached hair? Lacy underwear? Bad taste in music?
Obviously she paid an appropriate penalty for her faults and anyone who avoids these faults will not fall victim to a serial killer.
Who says I was moralizing?
If there’s a moral here, it’s that doing stupid things can have serious consequences.
Though there seems to be an unfortunate subset of the population which seems to have been raised to believe that being cute, purty and female exempts one from said consequences.
