Details of Disappearance

Morris was last seen at his home on Thomas Street in Heflin, Alabama on November 22, 1991. His mother had just had surgery on her knee, so he and his younger sister were helping her out.

A red sports car pulled up as Morris's sister was cooking dinner. He went inside and spoke to the driver, a woman he knew. His mother had told him to stay away from the woman. When he came back inside, he said his older brother had sent the woman to get him.

Morris's mother gave him permission to leave. He has never been heard from again. When his older brother came to the house later that evening, Morris's sister asked where Morris was. It turned out his brother didn't know, and hadn't sent anyone to come and get him.

Morris was a high school senior at the time of his disappearance and was known for being a good football player. His dream was to attend the University of Alabama on a football scholarship and eventually play professional football, like his uncle Ike Grant, who played for the New York Jets.

However, his younger sister stated he'd become involved with drugs by the time of his disappearance. He and his sister were close, but he wouldn't talk to her about it. Morris's case remains unsolved and foul play is suspected.
