His family said Bridges checked him out of the facility under false pretenses.

He claimed to be Morgan’s uncle, but they are not related and no one in Morgan’s family knows who Bridges is.

Morgan has not been in contact with any of his friends or family since leaving the facility.

Morgan’s right leg has been amputated and he has a prosthetic leg.

His family says he cannot survive without his medication and he did not take them with him when he left the facility.


Bridges is an amputee as well and is missing his left hand.

They were seen leaving the facility in a white or light-colored Hyundai.

If you have information on the whereabouts of Morgan or Bridges, please contact Det. Mathis at 770-724-7734.
