RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The FBI have released a new sketch of the suspect in the disappearance and murder of former Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington.

State police and the FBI say the man's DNA was found at the scene with Harrington's body. His name isn't known, but he is also wanted in connection to a sexual assault in Northern Virginia in 2005. In that case, the suspect grabbed a 26-year-old woman from behind as she was walking home from a store Fairfax. He carried her to a pool or park area and sexually assaulted her.

The composite sketch was provided after that attack, so the suspect may not look the same anymore, authorities cautioned. They depict the same suspect with and without facial hair.

The last time 20-year-old Morgan Harrington was seen alive was back in October 2009, at a Metallica concert in Charlottesville. The following January her remains were found in an Albemarle County field.

If you think you have seen this man, call 1 (800) 634-4097.
