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 can’t 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 Harrington’s 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 Harrington’s recovery.
