Real Name: Morgan Chauntel Nick
Nicknames: No known nicknames
Location: Alma, Arkansas
Date: June 9, 1995
Date of Birth: September 13, 1988
Weight: 55 lbs.
Marital Status: Single
Characteristics: Caucasian female with blond hair and blue eyes. Morgan had a protruding purple vein on the lower left side of her rib cage. Her teeth were also crowded and she had five visible silver caps on her molars at the time of her disappearance. She was wearing a green t-shirt bearing the Girl Scouts of America emblem when she vanished.
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.
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.
- This case first aired on the August 28, 2001 episode.
- It was also profiled on America’s Most Wanted.
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.
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.
