CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Hundreds of volunteers are searching for a University of Virginia student who has been missing for a week.

Volunteers met at the university's basketball arena Saturday morning before fanning out in search teams throughout Charlottesville.

City police continue to investigate the disappearance of Hannah Graham, an 18-year-old from northern Virginia.

Police said yesterday that they have spoken with a man they believe was with her in a bar on the night she went missing, but did not have enough information to arrest or detain him after searching his car and apartment.

A Virginia Department of Emergency Management spokeswoman estimates that more than 1,100 volunteers are taking part in today's search.
