The Morgan Nick Foundation is teaming up with a professional angler to help bring more kids home.

Casey Scanlon now has two photos of missing kids from the area on his truck on his wrapped Toyota Tundra truck, which he'll drive to the Bassmaster Classic in Tulsa Feb. 22-24.

He will also wear the Morgan Nick Foundation logo on his 2013 pro jersey.

More than a 100,000 people are expected to be there and they hope that increased exposure will help bring a missing child back home.

"As far as the amount of miles we travel throughout the year, I think it’s going to get a lot of recognition and get a lot of looks and hopefully recover a few children along the way," Scanlon said.

Scanlon will drive his truck about 35,000 miles this year. He plans to rotate photos of missing children and recovery information.

One in six children is recovered directly from someone recognizing their photo, according to statistics provided by the Morgan Nick Foundation.
