Circumstances of Disappearance
At 10:45 PM on June 9, 1995 in Alma, Arkansas, six-year-old Morgan Nick was abducted from a little league ball game by an unidentified man. Witnesses observed a man watching Morgan as she was playing with other children at the park. The witnesses also saw a red Ford pickup with a white camper parked nearby that disappeared at the same time as Morgan.

The camper is possibly damaged at the right rear, and was described as 4 to 5 inches too short for the truck. The truck is described as having a short wheel base, paint dulled with age, and a possible Arkansas license plate.

The man was described as white, 6 feet tall, with a medium to solid build (approximately 180 lbs.), salt-and-pepper hair, a mustache, and a 1-inch beard. He is believed to have been 23-38 years old at the time of the abduction.

Is this something they just received? If not, why wait so long to release it?
That's what I was thinking. I can't remember seeing it before.
The vehicle description on Charley Project says: The unidentified man may have been driving a red Ford pickup truck with a white camper, which had windows covered with curtains. The vehicle left the field's parking lot at approximately the same time Morgan disappeared. The truck had a dull paint job due to age, and a short wheel base. The camper was possibly damaged on its right rear end. Witnesses stated that the camper appeared to be four to five inches shorter than the truck.

Why in the world wait 26 years to release that picture if they've had it? I hope investigators at least showed it locally?

seems that if they had circulated that pic many years ago, somebody that might not have been actually watching what was on might look up at a familiar vehicle being shown and then pay attention as to why it was being shown in the first place to make the news.

At the time I think police kept the description of the vehicle and camper shell deliberately vague as to weed out wrong/fake tips and real ones. This is a common tactic with investigations all over the world. Personally I believe the case is very close to being solved, in my opinion detectives know who is responsible, they just need one more piece of evidence (perhaps a specific piece of evidence) that will get the ball rolling in regards to arrest and search warrants, hence why the documentary released the other night (also note they aired the doco in a certain part of Arkansas, not state wide or nationally, there could be meaning to that), and why police have posted the photo of the vehicle. They want someone who knows the truth to come forward, even if it means selling out a father, uncle, older sibling, or friend, they are so close to an arrest, that's what I feel right now.

I am also quite optimistic, that camper is recognizable, especially with being too short for the vehicle.

It's good to see someone with some optimism. :) I am far too cynical these days.
But I do believe you're probably correct that they know who is responsible, they just can't prove it.

Apparently revealed in the documentary was that a group of teenagers walking by a river that night had supposedly witnessed a red truck, and a man holding down a young child on a river bank south of the ball park. When the teens took police to where they witnessed this, they noticed the water level had risen to a point where it had submerged the location where the teens had seen the vehicle and man. What a frightening revelation if what the teens saw was true.

I don’t have access to it so I didn’t get to see it. I wonder how many teens there were? If there was a whole group, I can’t imagine them all going to Police and telling them such a story unless it was true.

I haven't seen the documentary either, I've only read about it on a few Facebook pages discussing the case and the doco. My first thought reading it was, why didn't the teens step in and help? But perhaps its easy for me to say that in hindsight, they might have assumed it was a parent handling a misbehaving child in a heavy handed manner as opposed to a potential predator and his victim.

Sometimes the shock kicks in and it takes a while to evaluate what you saw. Last year someone exposed themselves to me and I was in a shock fog for a little while before I realized “hey I need to call the police!” And I am a lot older and more experienced than a teenager.

OR they didn't realize what they were seeing until hearing about it?

Apparently the picture of the truck IS new... Morgan's mother had never seen it and the owner has not been identified.


New lead in Morgan Nick case after documentary released important details​


“Morgan is not a story or an idea to us she’s my daughter. And she’s not a documentary to entertain people, she’s a little girl,” said Colleen Nick, Mother of Morgan.

Alma police called it a roller coaster for them also, especially when leads don’t pan out.

But the documentary that came out has released an important detail that authorities want to bring back to the center of the investigation.

“We believe by eyewitness statements that the abductor drove a red truck with a white camper. the one we have a picture of is from the ballpark and the owner of that one has never been identified,” Alma Police said.

Colleen said she wanted to throw up when she actually saw the truck that may have taken Morgan.

“I’ve always known there’s a red truck with a white camper involved, I think everyone always knew that. But having an actual photograph of that truck it really changes things because now it’s not just a fake notion of a red truck with a white camper, we know what it looks like,” Colleen said.

Police said even if witnesses didn’t see the truck at the ballpark, they’re hoping it will jog memories of seeing it all over Alma.

Investigators have gotten several leads following the release of the documentary, only part of which was aired in Northwest Arkansas, but Chief Pointer says the departments roller coaster is trending upward right now.

“I guess the atmosphere in the office this morning was good, obviously were generating leads and we’ve gotten a great response,” Pointer said.

Colleen believes someone knows who owned that truck and asked that they let them know who.

Alma Police said if anyone has any information in regards to that red truck with the white camper to either give them a call or call the National Center for Missing and Exploited children.

"Since it's aired here in Arkansas, we've had 200 leads that have come in. Some of those leads have never been called in before,” said Colleen, Morgan Nick’s mother.

Colleen said although she's always held out hope for her daughter Morgan's return, 26 years later, these leads are valid. Which has encouraged her family.

"They are very good leads that are being investigated at the local state and federal level,” said Colleen.


"We provided home video that had never been seen before. And I believe the documentary does a really good job of showing what happened to Morgan that night,” said Colleen.

Morgan was playing with two of her friends at an Alma ballfield on the night of June 9th, 1995.

When they all started running back to the bleachers, Morgan stopped to tie her shoe and that's the last time anyone saw the 6-year-old.

And 26 years later, the documentary showed a red truck with a white camper shell.

Colleen said detectives have made that truck a priority in the investigation.

"They believe it might have been involved in Morgan's abduction,” said Colleen. “And they are really asking people to look at that truck. Look at that camper shell and find the courage to call police and report anyone you might have known who drove a truck like that back in 1995."

Every day Colleen and Morgan's family and friends remain hopeful and Colleen will keep fighting for her daughter until she has answers.

"Our end goal is to find Morgan and to bring her home if she survived and if she is out there somewhere waiting for us. And, if she didn't survive, we want justice for Morgan,” said Colleen.

If you missed the Still Missing Morgan documentary on THV11, there will be another opportunity for you to see it. Sometime this year a longer version of it will air on a national streaming platform, but the exact date is unknown for now.

Wonder if it would be possible to run a VIN list/license plate/owners of all the red trucks with white campers in the U.S. at that time.? Yes, it would be a long list. They could start with Arkansas, TN, and other surrounding states, and then branch out to other states further away to make it more manageable.
