WASHINGTON (AP) -- The band Metallica is participating in a publicity campaign aimed at catching a man wanted in the death of a Virginia Tech student who disappeared after one of their concerts.

The FBI and Virginia State Police announced the multi-media campaign Wednesday, which includes a public service announcement recorded by Metallica lead singer James Hetfield.

Morgan Harrington went missing after an October 2009 Metallica concert in Charlottesville.  Her remains were found in January 2010 in a hayfield.

The FBI says the suspect has been forensically linked to a 2005 sexual assault in Fairfax County and the FBI has revised its composite sketch of the man.

There is a reward of up to $150,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
