The parents of Morgan Dana Harrington are teaming up with advocates for children who want more help from the General Assembly.  Dan Harrington (pictured right) and his wife Gil (pictured left) are trying to make it easier for police departments and sheriffs to begin searching for missing persons. That includes more resources for law enforcement agencies. The effort is called Every Second Counts. The Harringtons’ only daughter was a Virginia Tech student who vanished during a 2009 Metallica concert on the University of Virginia Grounds.  Her remains were found four years ago this month in Albemarle County.  The Harringtons also support a proposal from Delegate Rob Bell (R-Albemarle). Bell wants to require that social services and law enforcement coordinate their efforts in child abuse cases.
