With a feature of the Morgan Harrington case on national television, Virginia State Police say they've received more tips in the past 24 hours.

The television program America's Most Wanted aired a feature on the case Friday night.

A VSP spokeswoman told the Newsplex while there's no exact number, they've received "several" tips after the show aired on the Lifetime network.

Harrington, a 20-year-old Virginia Tech student, disappeared in Charlottesville in October 2009 outside of the John Paul Jones Arena during a Metallica concert. Her body was found in January 2010 on a farm in southern Albemarle County.

Police have no suspects in the case -- only a sketch of a man linked to Harrington's case through DNA obtained in a 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax.

There is a $150,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.
