Missing Girl’s Family Teams Up With Parents Of Morgan Harrington

Many members of a Shipman family who want a 17-year-old girl to return home traveled to the Albemarle Square Shopping Center Saturday to highlight the search for the Nelson County High School senior. Laura Ann Murphy is the mother of Alexis Murphy, who vanished August 3rd. The missing teen’s mother says Nelson residents have taken notice of what happened six weeks ago. You can hear her comments by clicking the button at the bottom of this article. Members of Murphy’s family (pictured left) teamed up with Gil Harrington, the mother of the late Morgan Dana Harrington, and other members of the Help Save the Next Girl organization (pictured right and second from right). Gil Harrington (pictured second from left) says the social media is a lot more prominent than it was on the weekend nearly four years ago when her daughter disappeared. 20-year-old Morgan Harrington was last seen alive during a fall 2009 concert at the John Paul Jones Arena, but her skeletal remains were found 100 days later.
