New Jersey toddler found dead in car seat
WALL TOWNSHIP, NEW JERSEY (BDCi) – Authorities are looking for the father a New Jersey toddler who was found dead in her car seat, partially submerged in a stream.

They want to question him about her death.

Two-year-old Tierra Morgan lived in Lakehurst with her mother and was having a court-approved visit with her father on Monday, but he never brought her back.

The Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office says Arthur Morgan III, 27, of Ocean Township, is wanted for questioning in his daughter’s death. She was found still strapped into her car seat in a park stream Tuesday afternoon in Wall Township, about 20 miles north of where she lived.

Authorities believe Morgan may have left the state. Numerous transit-related police departments, including NJ Transit, Amtrak, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the FBI and the U.S Marshals Service are assisting in the search for him, covering train and bus stations, airports, and highway bridges and tunnels.
