N.C. group joins search for missing Va. girl

A North Carolina-based group is joining the search for a Virginia Tech student who vanished after attending a Metallica concert in Charlottesville.

Morgan Harrington's parents announced the participation of Community United Effort - Center for Missing Persons at a news conference Tuesday.

Founder Monica Caison says the organization relies on professional search and rescue teams that volunteer to look for missing persons and works closely with police and community search teams.

Harrington disappeared on Oct. 17. Police say the 20-year-old Roanoke woman became separated from friends after she left the concert arena and was denied re-entry.

You know she's dead. No surprise there. They'll find her body buried in a shallow grave with evidence of sexual assault. So many young women murdered every year.
