FBI looking for info on Billy Jack Lincks in Morgan Nick investigation

The FBI is looking for any information about Billy Jack Lincks in relation to Morgan Nick, who was reported missing 26 years ago.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The FBI is looking for any information about Billy Jack Lincks in relation to the Morgan Nick investigation.

It's a plea that is echoed by Morgan's mother, Colleen.

"Tell us what you know because you literally could be holding the key to bringing Morgan home," she said.

On June 9, 1995, the 6-year-old was taken from a parking lot near the Wofford baseball field in Alma, Arkansas and the person who took her has never been found.

Despite decades of dead ends, Colleen has always held out hope her daughter might be found.

"We are incredibly appreciative of the state of Arkansas, who really stood up for Morgan when she was taken and have continued to stand and fight for her," she said.

According to the FBI, Lincks attempted to abduct a young girl two months after Nick's disappearance. The location was eight miles away from the Wofford baseball field. 

He died in prison in 2000, according to Connor Hagan, Public Affairs Officer for the FBI in Little Rock.

"We know that this man didn't live in a vacuum. We know that he was in the community, he was in multiple communities and we want to bring closure to this case, the only way we're going to do it is with the public's help," he said.

"The FBI is requesting help from anyone who knew Billy Jack Lincks. Whether it was through school, work, church, or any social activity, we need information about Lincks and details about his entire life," the FBI said in a release.

Lincks reportedly moved back to the Van Buren area in the 1970s after working at Braniff Airlines in Dallas, Texas from 1962-1974. He also served with the U.S. Army during World War II.

With so many gaps to fill, Hagan said they won't stop until every question is answered, but they can't do it without help from the public.

"We're looking you know, obviously, more than 20 years into the past, but we're hoping that people will remember where he frequented, where he lived, what he drove, any piece of information is helpful to our agents," he said.

If you know Lincks or have info about him and his life, you are asked to contact the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI.

"I have always believed that they're going to solve this case, I absolutely 100% believe that they're going to find Morgan and that we're going to get justice for her," Colleen said.
