21 billboards in BR with Wesley Dale Morgan case information
BATON ROUGE - 21 digital signs have been installed throughout the Capital City area by federal agents in hopes that a tip from the public can aid them in solving a reopened child abduction investigation.
The FBI reopened the 15-year-old case on Wednesday, picking up the trail as they attempt to unravel what happened to Wesley Dale Morgan. Morgan was a 2-year-old when he vanished without a trace from his parents' home in the Clinton area off Highway 63 near Bluff Creek on May 15, 2001.
The billboards display a pair of age progressed images of Morgan that depict what investigators believe the boy would look like at the ages of 12 and 15. There's also a new tip-line phone number, 1-800-CALL-FBI, that has been dedicated to the child abduction case.
News 2 was able to obtain a list of the signage locations from Lamar Advertising. They've been placed not only in Baton Rouge but throughout Louisiana and Mississippi.
Lamar says the FBI has purchased the space to display the ads on an availability basis. The agency says there are currently none of the signs in the Metro New Orleans area as all available ad space is occupied.
The locations of the billboards are below:
We'll have more details about the reopened investigation this evening on News 2 at 4, 5 and 6.
