A Kilgore man who has been missing since 2015 and who has a warrant for sexual abuse of a child remains at-large.
Initially, Gregg County judicial records showed Longview Police Department officers had arrested Larry Don Morgan, 36, of Kilgore on Sunday for indecency with a child, sexual contact.
Sgt. Shane McCarter said that Longview officers received a tip that the individual who was arrested was Larry Don Morgan.
"Based on the information that the officers had at the time of the arrest, they did believe him to be Larry Don Morgan," McCarter said.
After running his fingerprints McCarter said officials were able to determine he was not Morgan but instead a man who was listed as a missing person out of Longview. He has since been released from custody.
Gregg County Sheriff's Office confirmed that a photo that was featured in county judicial records is not of the person associated with the charge.
Morgan has not been arrested at this time and remains at-large. A warrant for his arrest has been reactivated, McCarter said.
The warrant was initially issued in June 2015. Morgan was last seen on June 25 walking around Martin Street in downtown Kilgore.
