On a July night in 1995, Colleen Nick of Alma, Arkansas, took her six-year-old daughter, Morgan, to a little league baseball game:
During the game, two local girls asked Morgan to play with them. Colleen at first said no, but Morgan pleaded with her mother:
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:
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:
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.
