FBI’S CHILD ABDUCTION RAPID DEPLOYMENT (CARD) TEAM
REINVESTIGATING A 15-YEAR-OLD COLD CASE IN LOUISIANA
Baton Rouge – In an effort to recover a missing child, the FBI has deployed their Child Abduction Rapid Deployment (CARD) Team to Louisiana to assist the FBI New Orleans Division and the FBI Baton Rouge Joint-CARD team with investigating a15-year old cold case.
In May of 2001, Wesley Dale Morgan disappeared from Clinton, Louisiana, and has never been seen since. Throughout the years, the case remained open and the FBI New Orleans Division has continued the case with perseverance. However, with new technology, additional resources, and the Elite CARD Team operating under the Violent Crimes Against Children Section, the FBI and local law enforcement are reinvestigating Wesley Dale Morgan’s disappearance.
FBI CARD Teams consist of highly-trained and experienced subject-matter experts, comprised of FBI Agents, Intelligence Analysts, and Behavioral Analysis Profilers. CARD also utilizes resources from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and a variety of search teams. CARD Teams provide on-the-ground investigative, technical, analytical, and resource assistance during non-family child abductions, ransom child abductions, and mysterious disappearances of children.
In an effort to locate Wesley Dale Morgan, and bring closure to the family, the CARD Team with assistance from state and local law enforcement will be conducting countless interviews and extensive searches throughout the course of this investigation.
