Authorities are looking for the father of a New Jersey toddler who was found dead in her car seat, partially submerged in a stream, saying 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.

Thirteen law enforcement agencies ranging from local police to the FBI are involved in the investigation. The Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office is the lead agency because Tierra’s body was found in their jurisdiction.
