(CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.) — Volunteers plan to conduct a new search for Hannah Graham, the University of Virginia student who went missing more than a month ago.

The Charlottesville Police Department announced Saturday it had registered 200 members of the surrounding community to comb the woods at Walnut Creek Park, continuing a search for Graham that has covered much of the wooded area around the UVA campus.

The search is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Sunday, according to a website, Hike for Hannah, set up by the Blue Ridge Mountain Rescue Group.

The 18-year-old sophomore disappeared in the early morning hours of Sept. 13 and was last seen with a man who police said was Jesse Matthew.

Matthew was arrested in Galveston, Texas, on Sept. 24 and was charged with abduction with intent to defile.
