CASE DETAILS

An age progressed photo of Morgan

On a July night in 1995, Colleen Nick of Alma, Arkansas, took her six-year-old daughter, Morgan, to a little league baseball game:

“We’d made the choice to go, just Morgan and I, just to have girls’ night out, and it was just such a warm, close, fun night.”

During the game, two local girls asked Morgan to play with them. Colleen at first said no, but Morgan pleaded with her mother:

“Finally, against my better judgment, I told her that she could go and play, and she threw her arms around my neck and gave me a big hug. We could see them very clearly, and the last time that I turned to look, Morgan was running back and forth playing.”

Morgan disappeared while playing with friends

But when the game ended, the two girls returned to the field without Morgan. They said they last saw her getting sand out of her shoes near a car. Colleen Nick:

“I went over to the car, looked around the outside of the car, opened the doors, looked inside the car, thinking she had gotten in. Even at one point, looked under the car, just thinking she has to be here somewhere. Within a couple of minutes, all of the people and most of the cars were gone and it was very clear that Morgan wasn’t there.”

Colleen is a crusader for missing children

When one of the coaches questioned the two girls, they remembered seeing a man whom they described as “creepy” talking to Morgan out in the field. Police were called and arrived six minutes later. But they found no trace of Morgan. The media was alerted and flyers were posted. Weeks stretched into months, and finally years, with no sign of Morgan Nick. Colleen still has trouble coming to terms with the tragedy:

“It’s the worst terror that any parent can ever feel. There’s such a sense of it not being real, somehow. It does not seem possible that your child could be missing, that someone could have taken your child.”

Colleen turned her personal tragedy into a public crusade. She established the Morgan Nick Foundation, a non-profit organization that assists families with missing children.
The service Colleen provides has not detracted from her primary goal: to find her own daughter:

“I believe and I hope every single day that I get up, that today is the day that Morgan comes home.  And every night when I go to bed and she’s not back yet, I know that I’m one day closer to getting her back.”

    In the case details above, it mentions that when the “two girls returned”. There was a boy, Tyler, age 10 and a girl, Jessica, age 8 who were playing with Morgan. Sidebar questions, who were the two teams playing in The Little League game? Why hasn’t anyone else came forward who was at the ball field that night?

    I remember 6 years ago, I was on Wilshire close to La Brea there is close a Staple. I remember seen a man with a Teenage girl. I was in my car waiting in Parking lot. I
    saw this man with a teen similar to her. She looks tall and he is tall too. I remember
    his face and it’s similar of this pic. She looks similar but more tiny. Was suspicious for
    me the way he embrace her. When they left this store. He was with his arm around her.
    Both looks with some uncomfortable tension. I wrote to FBI a few years ago, but nobody
    answer. This Store is not exactly in that corner it is 3 or 4 blocks away from La Brea and
    it is on Wilshire. California. I suspect they live close of this building.

  4. What Happened to Morgan Nick

    That is sad for a girl to be stolen at a big place like that and definitely when it was a man who kidnapped her so that means she might be getting sexually abused right now

    I wonder if Craig Micheal Wood from Springfield Missouri, was ever looked at as a suspect.
    He kinda matches the composite from back then. Would it be worth it for the investigators to go the the Greene county jail and interview him? He should be easy enough to clear or add as a suspect.

    There is an active thread in the Arkansas Topix forum that has some interesting details and even names a couple of names;

    “Brock? Jason Brock .. alread Arkansas crabtree??
    His gfriend Stacy .. doesn’t know who she is or where she came from. Two people who went to school with Morgan. Live here now. They believe its her. But Stacy has had worst life. Made to have children at young age. Abused. Nothing in her life is true. They seclude her in the hills. A man named Bobby ezelle knows the truth. If Stacy isn’t Morgan Nick. Then maybe she can still get help. But we all know in our hearts its her. If her mother can find Jason Brock. Then hopefully DNA can b dun on Stacy. To find out. She remembers her mom’s car. And the man who took her she says had two different colored eyes. Was always told she was raised by her uncle. She has vague memories. Carries a paper with the first Morgan Nick missing flyer in her purse. People don’t want to say who she is bcuz her story is sad. She is addicted to drugs. But loves to get stuck in a clover patch looking for 4 leafs. She gets phones distroyed lap tops too. She is watched like a hawk. She is scared if she is Morgan someone might hurt her mother. And would rather her mother remember the lil girl not Stacy and all the sadness.”

    I submitted in a Forensic College Class-program that I was working on a photo of a incarcerated man that matches the description of the composite photo, I hope it’s him. Justice for Morgan Nick and her family, this area is so close to Oklahoma (within miles) that it’s a possible place she could have been taken, it may turn out to be where she was taken across state lines-perhaps it will lead into an F.B.I. “Federal” case, from what it appears from my view.

    I think she will be okay because she has been missing for years and he would of already killed her.

    Has anyone looked at the compisite sketch and compared it to Craig Michael Woods. He was convicted a few years back in Missouri for the kidnapping and murder of a 10 year old girl. The composite scratch and Craig Woods look similar. Worth looking into.

    When one of the coaches questioned the two girls, they remembered seeing a man whom they described as “creepy” talking to Morgan out in the field. Police were called and arrived six minutes later. But they found no trace of Morgan. This man was from 2 towns away, and I see her alive, but restrained in some way, she has been told she was adopted…… and I went way in the back of the shop and found some rooms like “little apartments” and I opened one of the doors and there were two young ladies in there, and one of the young ladies said she was Morgan Nick. I get she is in the bottom of Alabama, because the non custody parents, goes to Pensacola, on trips, hope this helps, but the kidnaper, lives 2 towns a way, and worked together/had bus. dealings, with the non custody parent in the past, this man introduced the 2, when they started seeing ea other, worked together/had bus. dealings. Hope this helps.

      From what I gather from the story, you are on target for most every part of the story. The man lived about 2 towns from Alma (but is from another state), he has a prior history of kidnapping-restraint type situation, she may have been told lies or stories of being adopted, it is very like this man, and he was the manager of a “shop” near Alma, where apartments-workers did stay, and he did business there locally. I have turned the man in hope this helps, gave the name and photo of the man to Alma Police and F.B.I. and to the NCMEC, hope he is caught soon, I have no ideas of where Morgan is or anything about the victim.

    I had a dream about Morgan Nick about two years ago. I dreamed that my husband and I were at a shell gas station right there in Alma & we were having problems with our tire, so we went to a tire shop next to the shell gas station. I had to use the bathroom while at the tire shop, so I went looking for a bathroom and I went way in the back of the shop and found some rooms like little apartments and I opened one of the doors and there were two young ladies in there, and one of the young ladies said she was Morgan Nick. This dream just seemed strange b/c I had never been to Alma until today while passing through going to Oklahoma, stopped at a gas station to use the bathroom, looked across the way & there sat a tire shop! That’s eerie! Maybe someone should check into it.

    I saw today that they arrested Anthony Palma in Oklahoma for the kidnapping of Kirsten Hatfield in 1997, he was from Midwest City Oklahoma which is just off I-40, an easy trip to Alma, Arkansas. I wonder if he could have abducted Morgan as well. The girls look similar, is there an old mugshot of him that might look like the composite?

    I’m actually younger than this girl but now that I have children of my own it bothers me a whole lot more. About a week ago my mother and I were talking about this case and she said a lady she knows may have possible seen Morgan she owns a thrift store here in mtn view Arkansas a couple hours away from where she was taken and a few days after her disappearance a man came in to buy girl clothes that were just about her size but he didn’t have a girl with him she felt very uneasy about this man and when he left she looked out the window and seen a little blonde girl in a red pickup truck she didn’t get the plate number but over the years she has thought alot about it and honestly thinks that girl was Morgan nick

    I called the number you listed here and was only able to leave a message. I’ve given statements to the county that man lives in. I’ve had correspondence with the mother. I have no idea who gets the messages I am sending through here. If you want to close this case contact me – I don’t have my hopes up to hear from you.

    I know the man in the composite drawing. I have contacted any and every one I could get to listen, including the mother. It’s been over two months approximately since I first made the connection, and I am sick to death to say that I don’t believe that any thing is going to happen. I believe with good reason Morgan is alive and well in central Arkansas. I hope I am proven correct – PLEASE SOMEONE DO SOMETHING BEFORE SOMETHING IS DONE TO ME!! I have details and a

    I hope and pray for this family that one day Morgan will return or someone out there will come forward with information that will bring Morgan home. She was playing so close within her mother’s eyesight and yet so far. Such a sad story, not knowing is a parent worse fear this family need closure.
