CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) _ Officials have taken articles of clothing from the apartment of the man they believe was the last person seen with a missing University of Virginia student.  Charlottesville Police Capt. Gary Pleasants says the items were recovered during a search of Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr.’s apartment Monday. Authorities first searched the 32-year-old’s car and apartment Friday, and Pleasants says information that came up during the investigation led to a second search. Police are awaiting lab results from items they recovered, and authorities are still trying to locate the campus employee to arrest him on a reckless driving charge. Matthew hasn’t been charged in the disappearance, but authorities say they want to talk to him about 18-year-old Hannah Graham. The sophomore from northern Virginia has been missing since Sept. 13.
