(Alma-AP) -- Five years after her daughter disappeared from a Little League ballpark in Alma, Colleen Nick holds onto the hope that Morgan will return home. Morgan disappeared June 9, 1995, after going off to catch fireflies with two young friends. A man in a red pickup truck talked to the children moments before the six-year-old vanished, but few solid clues have surfaced since. Alma Police Chief Russell White says that basically everything the police knows about her disappearance they gathered in the first 24 hours of the investigation. Like Morgan's mother, the police chief holds out hope that Morgan is still alive, but as a law enforcement officer, he says the odds are that she's not.
