Clinton boy still missing after 13 years
CLINTON - After being missing for more than 13 years, the family of a missing boy has a new picture of what he would look like today.
In May of 2001, search crews combed all around Clinton looking for a toddler who vanished. Wesley Dale Morgan was last seen at a house off Louisiana Highway 63 near Bluff Creek.
News 2 caught up with Morgan's aunt, Mary Dufour, Saturday to show her the new age-progression of what Morgan would look like now at 15 years old.
"We miss him really terribly. We pray to God everyday that he returns home to his family safe," said Dufour. "It's really, really sad. It's really sad, and I see some resemblance of my boys in this new age-progression picture. It's really, really sad."
Back in 2001, Investigators believed Wesley Dale Morgan's mother, Ruby Renee Havard may have had something to do with her son's disappearance. In 2008, Havard was charged for trying to sell one of her other children, but those charges were dropped that same year.
Today Morgan's aunt believes her nephew is still alive.
"I feel in my heart he is, and I always feel in my heart he is until I get notified otherwise. I hope and pray that he returns home safe and alive," said Dufour.
Dufour and other family members plan to spread the new 15-year-old age-progression throughout Clinton at stores and even spread it through parishes state-wide.
"The more it circulates, hopefully we'll get some good results from this, but everybody's willing to do whatever to find him. You know, it's about finding a missing baby that went missing that did nothing to nobody, nothing to nobody," said Dufour.
If you know any information that could help detectives solve the case of Wesley Dale Morgan, call the East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office at 225-683-5459. Wesley Dale Morgan may go by the name "Dean."
