Dec. 5, 2013

In light of Jamisha Gilbert’s disappearance and death, the families of Morgan Harrington and Alexis Murphy are planning a press conference this weekend to raise awareness for missing young men and women.

The conference will be held at noon Saturday, Dec. 7, at Miller Park in Lynchburg. The families plan to discuss what can be done to prevent violent crimes.

Alexis Murphy has been missing since August. She was last seen at a gas station in Nelson County.

Morgan Harrington disappeared in October 2009, after attending a concert at the John Paul Jones Arena. Her body was found in January 2010 on a farm in Albemarle County. Her murder has not been solved.
