Police in Virginia fear skeletal remains found on a farm in the state are those belonging to missing Metallica fan MORGAN HARRINGTON, who went missing after a concert last year (09).
The heavy rockers joined in the hunt for the student after she disappeared following a Metallica show in Charlottesville, Virginia in October (09), and even offered a $50,000 (£31,250) reward for information about Harrington's whereabouts.
Investigators have yet to confirm the remains are those of the missing 20 year old. A press conference is scheduled for 5pm Tuesday (26Jan10), local time.
The remains are those of a young, blonde woman wearing dark clothing - like those Harrington was wearing on the night she disappeared.
The farm is approximately 15 minutes outside Charlottesville.
Harrington's parents are understood to be on their way to the scene to identify the remains.
