UVA basketball players questioned about Harrington

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (WWBT) - University of Virginia said today members of the university's men's basketball team were questioned in the disappearance of missing Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington.

"Because of the number of rumors that have been circulating about members of the [team]," said Carol Wood, assistant vice president of UVA public affairs. "We felt it was important to make a statement to set the record straight."

She said after a practice, some members of the team had been approached by a female consistent with the description of Morgan Harrington.  They were interviewed and cooperated fully with law enforcement.  They provided information that is important to police and useful in creating a time line of her whereabouts.

Morgan Harrington was last seen on October 17 after she left a Metallica concert at John Paul Jones arena.

Virginia State Police said they continue to investigate leads and there are no suspects or persons of interest.

There is a $150,000 reward for information leading to her whereabouts.  Anyone with information is asked to call (434) 352-3467.
