New age-progression shows missing child at 15-years-old
CLINTON- A new age-progression image of Wesley Morgan was released Friday.
It's the first computer generated image in a years suggesting what Morgan, who disappeared when he was 2-years-old, would look like. The latest image shows Morgan possibly at 15.
Morgan vanished on May 15, 2001. He was last seen playing on his front porch.
"I was there," Detective Don McKey said in an interview with the WBRZ News 2 Investigative Unit for a special report about Wesley. "It was long hours. We searched the woods for a full week on horses. Volunteers from all over the parish came in to search for Wesley."
"In my heart, I think the little boy's alive," Sheriff Talmadge Bunch said in an interview after the child disappeared. "His mother knows where he's at, or knows more than she's telling us about."
Investigators believe Morgan may have been given away or sold. In 2008, Morgan's mother, Ruby Renee Havard was charged for trying to sell one of her other children, but those charges were dropped that same year.
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."
