Furthermore, Morgan wears eye glasses with one dark colored lens and it is believed that he has a red colored wheel chair with him. Morgan is approximately 6’1” tall, approximately 220 pounds, with shoulder length gray colored hair. Morgan is considered at risk due to suffering from dementia and having a previous brain injury.
