Virginia State Police said they believe a Virginia Tech student missing for nearly a month was hitchhiking after she left a Metallica concert in Charlottesville.

Witnesses saw a woman fitting the description of 20-year-old Morgan Dana Harrington of Roanoke on a bridge that crosses railroad tracks trying to get a ride, police said Friday.

Harrington became separated from her friends after she left the concert arena Oct. 17 and was denied re-entry. She told them she would find a way home.

Investigators want to hear from anyone who might have loaned a cell phone to a woman fitting Harrington's description, police said.

Harrington was wearing a distinctive necklace made of large crystal chain links, police said.

Metallica is offering $50,000 for information in the search for Harrington. Jefferson Area Crime Stoppers is offering $100,000.
