CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The parents of a Virginia Tech student who went missing in Charlottesville last month are asking the community to help search for her this weekend.

Dan Harrington told a news conference Wednesday the three-day search will be coordinated by the Laura Recovery Center, a Texas-based group that helps to recover missing children.

Morgan Dana Harrington, 20, was last seen on a bridge that crosses railroad tracks after she became separated from her friends at a Metallica concert Oct. 17.

Searchers will get instructions at a meeting at the Cavalier Inn Thursday night.

Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said police have received 350 tips so far and have followed up on every one.

Metallica contributed $50,000 to the $150,000 reward for Morgan Harrington's return.
