The FBI on Tuesday turned up the heat on the nationwide search for .
The FBI issued a formal wanted alert for Arthur Eugene Morgan III, whose last known address was in Eatontown. Morgan, 27, is wanted on murder charges stemming from the death of his toddler girl, Tierra Morgan-Glover, who was found last week strapped to a car seat and partially submerged in a stream in Shark River Park in Wall.
The alert says a federal charge of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution has been added to the murder charge issued out of Monmouth County following the discovery of the girl's body last Tuesday.
State and federal arrest warrants were issued last Wednesday, Nov. 23.
The alert indicates that the authorities suspect Morgan from an overpass threw the toddler into the Shark River, where she was later found.
"The stream runs beneath an overpass, suggesting that the child and the car seat were thrown from the overpass," the alert says.
The alert is the latest development in the hunt for Morgan. The case was detailed on the website of America's Most Wanted over the weekend.
The FBI describes Morgan as a black man, 5 feet, 6 inches to 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing 163 to 165 pounds. He has tattoos on his left hand and both arms, according to the FBI. The alert does not say what the tattoos are.
Morgan has used the names: Arthur E. Morgan, Arthur Glovermorgan , Arthur Glover, Eugene Rossi, Arthur Morgan III, Arthur Morgan, and Arthur Eugene Morgan, according to the FBI.
Morgan was last seen at the Asbury Park train station platform. The FBI alert says he may have ties in Texas and California.
Morgan should be considered armed and dangerous, according to the alert.
Tierra Morgan-Glover was considered missing after she did not return home from a visitation with Morgan on Nov. 21. Her body was found in the park by teenagers walking by the next day.
An autopsy determined Tierra was the victim of "homicidal violence'' by being submerged in water, police have said.
Funeral services were held Monday morning in Asbury Park.
Anyone with information on Morgan or the investigation also is asked to contact Detective Michael Clancy of the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office at 732-577-8700 or Detective Heath Bono of the Wall Township Police at 732-449-4800.
