Balloons to be Released in Honor of Morgan Nick

Family and friends will gather Monday night to release dozens of pink balloons for the 19th anniversary of Morgan Nick’s disappearance.

On June 9th, 1995 Morgan was kidnapped from a little league ball field in Alma. Her mother, Colleen Nick, went on to found the Morgan Nick Foundation in hopes of finding Morgan and helping other missing kids.

“We’ve never been given any kind of proof that Morgan is not alive. And we’ve seen amazing stories of recovery: the girls from Ohio last year. You know, Jaycee Dugard in California had been missing for 18 years”, said Morgan’s mother Colleen Nick, “We do know kids survive and they’re just waiting to be rescued. So my family is committed to finding Morgan and bringing her home.

Each balloon will have a card attached with Morgan’s picture and story.

If you have information that you believe could help solve this case, call Crime Stoppers at (479) 78-CRIME.

    I really wish organizations would understand the damage balloon releases do to the environment. Its a nice gesture, but wild life die from eating the balloons and it pollutes our environment(there is no such thing as biodegradable latex).

    Once balloons are released, they can become a serious form of marine pollution. A long list of marine creatures – dolphins, whales, turtles, fish, and seabirds – have been reported with balloons in their stomachs. It is believed that they mistake balloons and other buoyant plastics for their natural prey e.g. jellyfish and squid, and eat them.
    Pollution on land is just as detrimental. The strings attached to balloons have been found wrapped around bird necks, etc.
    The practice should be banned to preserve our nature and her environment,

    I AGREE WITH CRAIG AND JENNIFER. I THINK IT IS INFINITELY MORE IMPORTANT TO DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO FIND THIS MISSING PERSON THAN IT IS TO WORRY ABOUT WILDLIFE. THIS MAY BE THE ONE THING THAT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR THIS FAMILY. I THINK WE NEED TO BAN THE STUPIDITY OF PEOPLE BEING MORE CONCERNED WITH WILDLIFE/ANIMALS THAN FOR HUMAN LIFE! LETS HAVE A LITTLE COMMON SENSE AND MORE CONCERN FOR THIS FAMILY. I THINK EVERYONE WOULD APPRECIATE HAVING SOME RESPECT, AND YOU WOULD WANT EVERYTHING POSSIBLE IF IT WAS YOUR FAMILY MISSING.

    I have so much to say but I will refrain. I hope you feel better after sharing your thoughts.

    Sarah and Stephy, there is a time and place for every platform. Here is not the place to do it . Please take into consideration the feelings of this family. Make your statements elsewhere so that you get your point across without seeming totally inconsiderate of such a sensitive issue. Totally inappropriate here.

      Very well said! Could not agree more Cheryl!

      Very inappropriate ladies. Understand your point and it is a valid one but wrong place and wrong time to take a very sensitive situation as this to “have your voice heard”. Take it to another post if that’s all you have to say here when a person is missing.

    My thought is simple if one balloon could bring home this precious child and another balloon kill a bird then it was time for that bird to go . Will be praying this family finds their daughter !

    I agree with Sandra. A Human is worth more than any animal. If Morgan is found it will be worth the chance of some animal dying.
