Virginia police officials have released new information about a Metallica fan who went missing after the group's show in Charlottesville two months ago (Oct09) in the hope that the update will prompt new leads.
The group has appealed for help in finding Morgan Harrington and they've offered a reward for information that leads investigators to the missing 20 year old.
Bandmates Robert Trujillo and Kirk Hammett have spoken out about their concerns for the missing student and frontman James Hetfield has reportedly contacted her parents to offer his support and help.
The new information, released on Wednesday (30Dec09) by Virginia State Police investigators, suggests Harrington had been drinking alcohol before she disappeared.
Police have reissued a 'Missing' poster with blonde Harrington's information. The billboard states she was wearing a black Pantera T-shirt, black mini-skirt, black tights and black knee-length boots on the night she disappeared.
Metallica have offered up a $50,000 (£31,250) reward for information that leads to Harrington's whereabouts. The band's reward has been added to the Harrington family's $100,000 (£62,500) cash incentive for information.
