Authorities in Arkansas have been searching for missing child Morgan Nick for nearly 20 years, as well as the identity of her suspected abductor who's name remains unknown. AMW aired this case six times between 1995 and 2006.
6-year old Morgan, her mother and her friends attended a little league baseball game in the evening hours on Jun 9, 1995 in Alma, Arkansas. Sometime during the evening, an unidentified white male aged 23-38 who spoke with a hillbilly accent asked a group of children playing with Morgan a question, the specifics were never released by law enforcement. The man was watching Morgan during the baseball game. Morgan disappeared at 10:45 PM and the mysterious man who drove a red Ford pickup truck with a white camper was never seen again. The truck had Arkansas license plates.
Authorities believe that two other attempted abductions of young girls in the area that occurred on Jun 9 and 10th are linked to this case as well. Something unusual was that right before the old fox.com amw forum went offline, a poster mentioned that the abductor of Morgan actually resembled Morgan's uncle. The poster e-mailed me but that went to my old e-mail account so I'll have to see if I can re-access it. I don't remember why the poster suspected it though.
Another piece of information was that there were articles from 1995 that mentioned possible sightings of Morgan in both Arkansas and South Carolina. The man with a girl (who claimed to be her uncle in at least the Arkansas sightings) was buying dresses for her. However it's quite possible that wasn't Morgan in the first place and even if it was her, there's nothing to say it was her uncle as well. I suspect that her immediate family was questioned and ruled out as potential suspects because I've never heard law enforcement suspect a family member in this case.
Someone on another true-crime forum mentioned that Dennis Bradford may have been involved. AMW viewers will likely remember him as the unidentified rapist of Jennifer Schuett back in 1990 who was caught shortly after being profiled on AMW (indirect capture). The age of Bradford at the time of his 2009 arrest and the approximate age of Morgan's suspected abductor would actually match. The only problem is that Bradford committed suicide in prison in 2010 so if he was responsible, we'll likely never know the answer.
