BELLA VISTA, Ark. — The search for missing 74-year-old Barbara Doyle continues this week according to the BVPD.
According to an update through court filings they are gathering security camera footage from area businesses and also gathering electronic data to see who could have been in the area and seen Doyle that day walking.

Monday, August 23, 9:45 a.m. — “Last week we brought in cadaver dogs to do searches in the original area, but nothing was found. We worked last week also to secure warrants for some electronic searches and to gather electronic data, which helps determine different people who may have been in the area when she went missing. This data is hefty, and we will be continuing this week on those efforts, while we continue to do ground searches as well. We are tracking down every possibility, such as she wandered farther than we originally thought and that perhaps she was picked up. We appreciate everyone’s continued support.”

Barbara Ann Doyle, 74, authorities believe she walked away from a facility Thursday, August 12. She was seen on security footage (see missing poster). The family are working closely with BVPD. The Morgan Nick Foundation is assisting, and a $10,000 reward has been offered by an anonymous donor.

What is the Morgan Nick Foundation…

At 10:45 p.m. on June 9, 1995 in Alma, Arkansas, 6-year-old Morgan Nick was abducted from a little league ball game by an unidentified man. She was attending the game with her mother and had joined some friends to catch lightning bugs. Morgan was last seen standing near her mother’s car where she had stopped to empty sand from her shoes. Witnesses observed a man watching the youngster as she was playing with other children at the park. The witness also saw a red Ford pickup with a white camper parked nearby that disappeared at about the same time as Morgan. The camper is possibly damaged at the right rear, and was described as four or five inches too short for the truck, which has a short wheel base and paint dulled by age. The truck is believed to have Arkansas license plates. (read more…)
