ALMA, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) —June 9, 2020, marks 25 years since Morgan Nick went missing at 6-years-old in Alma, and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children has released a new age-progression photo of what Morgan might look like today at 31.
On this day in 1995, Nick went missing from the Alma Little League Ball Field after she went to the parking lot with two other children to catch fireflies.
When the other children returned to their parents at the bleachers, Morgan was not with them. The kids told police they had seen a man with a beard speaking with Morgan next to a truck with a red camper.
To this date, the man has not been identified.
Police say they continue to receive tips in the case on an almost-daily basis.
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and Morgan’s family released the new photo with the hopes it would help bring her home. Click here to see Morgan’s full missing poster.
“It was never a thought in my head that Morgan would still be missing for 25 years,” said Colleen Nick, Morgan’s mother. “Someone knows the truth.”
Still Missing Morgan Director Devon Parks has been working hand-in-hand with the Nicks for almost a year.
“Knowing so much about this story, being so close to the same age as Morgan, I was connected to it in a way,” he said.
Parks said he hopes this documentary will lead to a break in Morgan’s case — but most importantly he hopes people will see Morgan for the little girl she was.
“Maybe they can offer a shred of information, a tiny little piece of the puzzle that law enforcement and the family have been putting together for the last 25 years that could ultimately result in finding Morgan,” he said.
We hope that when people watch this documentary they get to know Morgan deeper and she’s no longer just a child on a missing poster but they know her as Morgan Nick.DEVON PARKS, STILL MISSING MORGAN DIRECTOR
Parks said the documentary series on Morgan’s disappearance will be heading to streaming service platforms when it releases this fall.
The documentary crew said that law enforcement has shared information that has never been made public in the 1995 case and hopes the series will shed more light.
