Girl, 6, was snatched at Little League game
(CNN) – In about the same time that it takes to light a match, tie a shoelace or hail a taxi, 6-year-old Morgan Nick vanished from her mother's sight.
Morgan was catching fireflies with other children in a baseball field parking lot in Alma, Arkansas, as a Little League game was winding down on the evening of June 9, 1995.
At first, Morgan, who was a bit shy, did not want to join the others as they tried to catch and release the glowing insects, said her mother, Colleen Nick.
But after a while, the kids persuaded Morgan to accompany them, and her mother gave permission, reluctantly, she now recalls. Morgan "threw her arms around my neck and gave me a big hug," Nick said.
"She kissed me on the cheek and then climbed out of the bleachers and ran to where the cars were parked, which was a little less than 50 yards from where we were. So we could see them running back and forth and playing."
They chased fireflies for about 15 minutes. When her playmates came back to the field, Morgan wasn't with them. She was no nowhere in sight.
Her mother's panic set in quickly. Someone with a cell phone called 911 and police arrived to help search for Morgan. "We are still searching," Nick said in a recent interview slightly more than 15 years after her daughter disappeared on a warm summer night.
Police now believe Morgan was abducted by a stranger. The case has left an indelible mark on Arkansas.
The Morgan Nick Amber Alert System is one testament to her mother's activism and the imprint Morgan's disappearance has made.
