LOVINGSTON, Va. -- An event in Lovington that aims to raise awareness about missing people will include the families of Morgan Harrington and Alexis Murphy.

Media outlets report that Friday's event is part of an eight-state tour by the CUE Center for Missing Persons.

The 17-year-old Murphy was last seen Aug. 3 by her family. Her car was found in the parking lot of a multiplex in Charlottesville. A suspect in her disappearance, Randy Allen Taylor, has been indicted on an abduction charge and an unrelated possession of a stolen vehicle charge.

Harrington disappeared in October 2009 after leaving a concert at the University in Charlottesville. The 20-year-old Roanoke woman's remains were found in January 2010 in a hayfield in Albemarle County. No arrests have been made.
