CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WTVR) -- Sunday marked the fourth anniversary of the day Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington's body was found on a farm. The college student had been missing for about four months.

While attending an on-campus concert at the University of Virginia in October of 2009, the 20-year-old disappeared.

During the opening act, Harrington told friends she was going to the restroom. When she did not return, her friends called her anxiously. Harrington told them due to the venue's 'no re-entry' policy that she couldn't get back in and would find a way home.

Some witnesses claim to have seen her hitch-hiking on Copeley Road around 9:30 p.m. after leaving the arena that night.

Morgan's parents were at the Copeley Road bridge on the north grounds of UVA to honor and remember their daughter on Sunday.

The Harrington's took the opportunity to remind CBS 6 and the Charlottesville community that Morgan's murderer remains at large.
