Case[]

Details: On the night of June 9, 1995, six-year-old Morgan Nick went to a Little League baseball game in Alma, Arkansas with her mother, Colleen. During it, two children asked her to come to a field to catch fireflies. At 10:30pm, Colleen allowed her to go with them. However, when the game ended at 10:45pm, the girls returned from the field without her and said that she was by Colleen's car getting sand out of her shoes. However, when Colleen went over to it, she wasn't there, and as the people left, panic and fear overwhelmed her.
Colleen had one of the coaches talk to the two children and they remembered seeing a man they described as "creepy" in a red pickup truck talking to Morgan. It left around the same time she was last seen. Another coach called 911 to report her missing. Within minutes, a massive search was started by law enforcement but she could not be found. For years, Colleen has searched for her. She has now become a leading activist for missing children across the country. She was able to turn her disappearance into a nationwide news story.
One year after Morgan was abducted, Colleen started the Morgan Nick Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps assist families with missing children and has helped bring several home safely.
In 2001, Colleen was asked to help with the case of missing five-month-old Jacqueline Castaneda. The foundation made posters and flyers for her and sent e-mails about her disappearance. She has never been found.

A composite of the suspect

Suspects: The police are looking for a white male described by Morgan's friends as "creepy". In 1995, he was described as being between the ages of twenty-three and thirty-eight, 6-foot-tall and 180 pounds. He has never been identified. He was driving a dull-red, older Ford pickup with a white camper shell.
It is suspected that Morgan's disappearance may have been related to two attempted abductions that happened around the time that she was abducted. On the morning of June 9, a four-year-old was pulled into a truck outside a laundromat in Alma; fortunately, her mother was able to retrieve her. On June 10, a nine-year-old was forced into the men's restroom at a convenience store in Fort Smith, ten miles away. She was able to escape as well. In both cases, the abductor and his vehicle was similar in description to Morgan's.
Extra Notes:

Results: Unsolved. If Morgan is still alive, she would be now thirty-three years old. In August 2012, Tonya Smith and James Monhart, two previously convicted felons, were arrested for computer fraud after attempting to assume her identity. However, it is not believed that they are connected to her disappearance. In December 2017, a property was searched in connection to it. However, nothing was found. The property belonged to a man who had been a person of interest in this case since the beginning. He is currently in prison on unrelated charges but refuses to discuss it.

Truck at baseball game

In April 2021, the documentary "Still Missing" aired in Arkansas about Morgan. As a result of the documentary, over 300 leads came in, some of which were very credible and had never been reported before. Colleen said that she felt encouraged by the documentary and the leads, and maintains hope that Morgan will return to her. During the airing of “Still Missing” and subsequent interviews with Colleen about the documentary, a picture of a red truck was repeatedly released that was taken at the baseball field the day of the abduction and was believed to have been the one used to abduct Morgan. The picture of the truck had never been released to the public before, and is believed to have been a Chevrolet truck, possibly a Silverado or an S10. There are also potential plans to air "Still Missing" on a national streaming platform to provide further exposure to this case.

Billy Jack Lincks

In November 2021, possibly due to leads that had come in due to the release of “Still Missing”, it was announced that convicted felon and Arkansas native Billy Jack Lincks was named a person of interest in this case. Several months after Morgan was abducted, he had attempted to abduct another child at a Sonic restaurant in Van Buren, approximately eight miles from where Morgan was last seen. He allegedly drove a red Chevy truck that was described as similar to the red truck that was seen at the baseball field where Morgan was last seen. Although Lincks died in prison in 2000, law enforcement is seeking to interview people who knew Lincks to determine if he is connected to this case.
