Statement by Dan and Gil Harrington

On November - 24 - 2009

We’d like to extend our gratitude to those who attended the candle light vigils on Saturday, November 21st, in honor of our daughter, Morgan. Words cannot express how difficult the past five weeks have been for our family, but your ongoing support has profoundly helped us endure the difficulty. We also thank the countless people who have expressed their sympathies online and have helped advance our search by distributing information and flyers throughout their own communities. Your selfless efforts are deeply appreciated.

    I was unable to attend the vigil Saturday night. We did an independant search in Charlottesville,and got home late, but I lit a candle at nine pm and it stayed lit with hope,love and faith for Morgan for 24 hours! Prayers are with you and your family every day!

    Dear Harringtons,

    Still with you all, remaining optimistic and thinking of you everyday. Will not give up, we will get answers. Please know you are surrounded by those who just won’t quit until we get Morgan back. Stay strong – with loving thoughts – “Another Mom”

    My thoughts and prayers are with you, especially as we approach the holidays. We will light a candle in our window until your beautiful daughter is found. With love, Gramme

    Your family is in my thoughts and prayers as Thanksgiving draws nearer. I cannot imagine the thought of facing the holidays with still no answers. God bless you and give you the grace to remain strong. I pray for Morgan’s safe return and for answers to be found for you.

    Dan, Gil, Alex, I decided to post here even though I know you are so overwhelmed… I cannot tell you the number of people on our facebook page who have bonded together because of Morgan. We are in constant touch with each other several times a day to keep up with the latest ideas and collaborate. Some of us were at the Laura Recovery Search and remained behind until evening to search a few extra places on our own…great people!
    My father died last week and on our way back home to Roanoke my daughter and I took a detour to some places to search. Everyone has their theories and we all help each other in research. The Trinkles are good friends so I am always calling them to run the latest ideas by them. I also understand that Annie Waldrop was your room mate at one point Gil. I believe there may be another small group search this weekend and I may take Ann with us.
    Please know that you and Morgan are in our thoughts and constant prayers. We will do ANYTHING to help bring her home…just ask. Love, Jamie Waldrop

    This is horrible..I live in colorado now but lived in Newport News and am the same age as your daughter and I’ve been touched by this and have been checking for updates weekly. I wish someone would come forward or realize how many people they are affecting by not talking. Would they want this happening to them or their children and how could they live with themselves. I’m sorry for everything your family is going through. Its not right and I don’t understnad people who can take people and not feel horrible when they see their family struggling because of what that person has done. Please let me know if there is anything I can do..Like I said I live in colorado but maybe if I spread the word around her or at least spread the word about your daughter something might come up. Please let me know..I would be more then happy.
