LITTLE ROCK — On the 20th anniversary of Morgan Nick’s disappearance, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children released something the general public has never seen — videos of interviews with two of the last people to see Morgan before she disappeared.


Morgan was 6 when she and her mother, Colleen Nick, went to a Little League game at an Alma ballpark on June 9, 1995. Near the end of the game, Morgan joined some friends to chase fireflies.


Videos of recent interviews with two of those friends, now adults, can be viewed on vimeo.com, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children announced Tuesday. A spokeswoman for the center said the children wish to be identified only by their first names, Jessica and Tye.


In the video of Jessica’s interview, she recalls, "I remember him being up there, a man, leaning against his truck while we were playing. But you’re so innocent then, you don’t think anything, and you’re just running around laughing and playing. Like I said, we were catching fireflies and just being kids."


In Tye’s interview, he says, "If you were a kid and you were at the baseball field, you always went up to the top of the hill because you could see everything. There was like a sand pile where they were going to do construction or something, so everybody played in that weird sand mess that they had up there."


Tye recalls that after playing in the sand, "We had it all in our shoes and everything, so we went to the car to dump out all the sand, and Jessica and I sat on the front of the car and Morgan was on the back of the car, and being kids, we didn’t think anything about. … When we got back up there, she was gone, and so was the guy’s truck that was up there when we left."


He says he did not see the man take Morgan, but "there’s just no other way. It happened so fast."


Authorities have said the man is described as white, 6 feet tall, with a medium to solid build, a mustache and a 1-inch beard. At the time, he was believed to be 23-38 years old.


A composite sketch of the man is available at www.morgannickfoundation.com.


The man’s vehicle is described as a red Ford pickup with a white camper. The camper was possibly damaged at the right rear, and was described as 4 or 5 inches too short for the truck, which had a short wheel base and paint dulled by age. The truck was believed to have Arkansas license plates.


At a news conference last week, Colleen Nick, founder of the Morgan Nick Foundation, and others announced a new campaign to locate Morgan. The campaign includes the release of a new age-progressed photo of Morgan which is appearing on billboards in the Fort Smith and Alma areas, northwest Arkansas and Little Rock.
