I really really hope that not only the UVA Police are searching for this girl as the story says. I really hope she is found soon, and unharmed. Prayers go out to her family and friends.

Morgan came to the concert with so called friends. During the concert she started feeling sick, so she went outside to get some air. JPJ would not let her back in due to policy. When the concert was over her "Friends" could not find her, so they left and went back to Tech. Security found her pocket book and items in the parking lot and called her parents. The parents in turned called the friends and they told her they could find her and left and came back to Tech. The parents then called the police back. The State Police and FBI and now part of the investagation.

News - How were you made aware that JPJ would not let her back in? What "items" were found by security?

Morgan called her friends in JPJ and left that message that she could not get back in. They did not hear the phone due to the music. They found her packet book and a jacket.

Absolutely amazing some of the comments by a few on here who want to act like investigators. Do you honestly believe the police have not asked all the questions you are posing here??? Just because they aren't releasing every detail doesn't mean they don't have any information. And what difference does it make which parking lot they found her belongings in? I sincerely hope this young lady is found safe soon. Her parents must be going through unimaginable pain and anguish.

You're right, we should all just sit around and wait for the news to release information when they are asking for the public's help. Who cares if these questions have already been asked behind closed doors? You want us to help? We can ask questions too...What's amazing is that there are several of you idiots that would rather get on here and blast the people who are actually willing to go out and look for this girl. Let's see how pompous you are when one of your loved ones disappears w/o a trace and you turn to the public for help

Did she attend the Metallica concert? The warmup bands (not Metallica) spewed a lot of hate and violence in their lyrics?
If she did attend from VT (Blacksburg), was she with "friends" and did she, because of her apparent good looks, get invited "back stage" ? She could be on an extended road trip.
Wherever she is I sincerely hope she is well and unharmed.
What does the lyrics have to do with her dissapearence?

In response to your anger ... I AGREE, and can HONESTLY RELATE, to the parents of a missing daughter. My daughter went missing for 6 months some time ago, but because I asked the right questions and talked to the right people she was found ... alive. Believe it or not, HOO FAN, there are genuinely concerned people in the area who would be interested in helping the police locate this young woman. I work near JPJ and could be on the lookout in that area.

<quoted text> The problem comes when the stupid take the lyrics too literally. I mean, I love the song "Hate My Life" -- but I don't take it seriously. I actually think its a funny song, and after a bad day at work, listen to it going home and LAUGH. I love Metallica, too, but for some strange reason, their music has a calming effect on me. Plus I love annoying the crap out of the drivers around me on the way home ...
I love that song too....my work truck has a 600 watt system in it, with a 10 sub as well, we rock when we ride job to job, I have been asked if I am hard of hearing cause of how loud we listen to music, but I love to rock out to some kick'n tunes

I don't think HOO FAN is being pompous, but merely asking questions just like you and the others. Don't for a minute fool yourself into thinking the police are releasing all the info they have. They never do and it's a smart move on their part. On the other hand I work VERY close to JPJ and since Monday I haven't seen anyone out there "looking". If you want to help go out and start the ground search, make your presence known instead of making comments like your last sentence. That shows your level of compassion. I hardly believe anyone that know's anything about her disappearance is going to post it on here.

I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that her "friends" couldn't find her so they LEFT without contacting police, calling her parents and continuing to try to find her. Some "friends" they are. If something has happened to that girl, they can thank themselves for their part in it. There is being young and wild, and then there is being STUPID and THOUGHTLESS. Entirely different things.

If she was feeling sick, it is also entirely possible that there was drinking/drugs involved (not passing judgment here, I was young once too...) and that may have contributed both to her "friends" leaving her, and with her making a really bad decision in the JPJ parking lot. I still think there is more to the story...if one feels sick, wouldn't a trip to the restroom be a bit more in order than leaving the concert (knowing full well you won't get back in) to go to the parking lot alone? I'd bet money she left with someone she met...or was impaired and not thinking clearly...

Here's hoping they find her alive and well. As a mother of daughters, I simply cannot imagine the anguish...

wow...how do you have the nerve to tell her to stop worrying about getting people in trouble? You don't know anything about either one of them. I think it's a little prejudice to assume because of their age that they were doing anything illegal or harmful, or that they are wild. This is a girl that is concerned about her friend that is missing so what gives you the right to assume that she is hiding something? The real concern is bringing this girl home safe, regardless of how or why she is missing.
hey, how or why she is missing could be the the questions that bring her home. i agree with realist and uva fan you have to ask these questions...they should give up any info that could possibly help. i don't understand how you can go to a concert with friends and disappear without no one knowing anything. did she go to the bathroom alone? did she get mad and leave? did she run in to someone else she knew? did she meet a "new" friend? our friends rules at that age were simple and clear and its what kids today need to heed by........stay together!

glad these "FRIENDS" are not mine. my mother always said "you are only as good as the company you keep" if she were my friend, she would have been in the car with me back to tech. i would not have left c'ville without her. what kind of friends are these? to the so called friends......i hope you had a good time at the show...i am sure it was well worth "LOOSING" your friend over.

these friends did the best they could in the situation. don't assume you know all of the details as to what happened. imagine the anguish and heartache morgan's friends are going through already. how could you possibly point the blame on them? really people, we aren't here to criticize what happened, especially when we don't know what actually did happen.

If the Arena's policy is the same as Scott Stadium, re-entry without a previously unused ticket is not allowe once an individual leaves the facility. If I am correct, this policy was put into affect after 9/11, and I think is also intended to keep people from drinking during the break or "sharing tickets." That is, one person goes to the first 1/2 of a concert or game and then passes the ticket off to another person at 1/2 time or intermission. I know this had been a practice with some before the policy was put in place. This incident maybe will make officials realize that in some cases the policy should be waived, for instance if someone feels ill, needs air and stays within view of a staff person.

To UVa Fan - her purse (cell phone and credit cards included) was found in the JPJ parking lot, so unfortunately, it would not be of any help in locating her.
