Seminole County Officials Look For Missing Boy

POSTED: 10:51 am CDT April 21, 2006  UPDATED: 10:46 am CDT April 22, 2006

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Okla. -- Oklahoma law enforcement officers are again looking for a missing child.

Seminole County authorities are looking for Colton Clark, 9, who disappeared Thursday afternoon. He was last seen in Seminole.

Colt is described as 4 feet, 4 inches tall and 65 pounds with short brown hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing silver glasses, blue Wrangler-brand jeans, a sky-blue shirt and white and blue tennis shoes.

Gene Thaxton of the state Amber Alert committee said an Amber Alert has not been issued because there is no information confirming that the boy has been abducted. Thaxton said he's currently classified only as missing.

This is the third time in less than a month and the second time since last week that a child has been reported missing in Oklahoma.

A 10-year-old Tulsa girl disappeared March 28 and was found dead, and a 10-year-old Purcell girl who was reported missing last Wednesday was found dead last Friday.

Arrests have been made in both cases.

Anyone with information about Clark should call the Seminole County Sheriff's Department at (405) 257-5445.

Search Back On For Missing Seminole Boy

POSTED: 1:40 pm CDT April 24, 2006 UPDATED: 6:47 pm CDT April 24, 2006

SEMINOLE, Okla. -- It's day No. 5 in the search for a boy missing in Seminole County.

Police called off the search for Colt Levi Clark temporarily on Sunday, after several days without any luck. However, that search is back on, officials said.

Colt is described as 4 feet, 4 inches tall and 65 pounds with short brown hair and hazel eyes. He was last seen wearing silver glasses, blue Wrangler-brand jeans, a sky-blue shirt and white and blue tennis shoes.

State alert issued for missing boy

KTEN Local News

WEWOKA, Okla. An Oklahoma Missing Child Alert is now in place for a missing 9-year-old boy in Seminole County.

Colton Clark disappeared last Thursday afternoon and authorities have said he may have run away.

The missing child alert isn't as widespread as an Amber Alert but does make sure flyers with a photo and description of the boy are distributed statewide and within 200 miles of the state.

An Amber Alert hasn't been issued because investigators say there is no evidence Colton was abducted.

Seminole County Undersheriff Hugh Doty says authorities are also looking for a truck seen near the boy's home last Thursday. The truck is a 2003 gold G-M-C extended cab with a long-bed, tinted windows, a black bumper and Oklahoma tags.

The boy is about 4-feet-4 and 65 pounds with short brown hair and silver-framed glasses.

State alert issued for 9-year-old Seminole County boy

By Associated Press  4/25/2006 12:23:00 PM

WEWOKA -- Authorities have searched 2,500 acres around a missing boy's home and questioned all his relatives but have failed to find any sign of the 9-year-old since he disappeared about 1 p.m. Thursday.

"We've had search dogs, aircraft, helicopters, four-wheelers, OHP (Oklahoma Highway Patrol) divers that check all the ponds and stuff, but that's really about all we have," Seminole County Undersheriff Hugh Doty said Monday. "He's still a missing child, and we're doing all we can to locate him."

Colton Levi Clark's backpack is gone, so authorities think he could be a runaway. Since there is no evidence he was abducted, he doesn't meet the criteria for issuing an Amber Alert, which allows authorities to post a missing child's information on highway bulletin boards.

Instead, an Oklahoma Missing Child Alert has been issued. This will ensure that flyers with the photo and description of the boy are e-mailed and distributed statewide and within 200 miles of the state.

Authorities also are searching for a "vehicle of interest" that was seen near the boy's home, where he last was seen Thursday. Doty described it as a 2003 gold GMC extended cab, long-bed pickup, with tinted windows, a black bumper and an Oklahoma tag.

Meanwhile, law enforcement authorities are fielding tips from the public.

"My phone hasn't shut down hardly at all," Doty said. "I've been out on two or three different calls last night and they were possible sightings by Eufaula Lake and a lady called me from Texas.

Colton is a white, 4-feet-4, 65 pounds, with short brown hair and hazel eyes. He last was seen wearing silver eyeglasses, Wrangler blue jeans, a light blue shirt and white and blue tennis shoes.

Search Continues For A Missing Seminole County Boy

KOTV - 5/10/2006 2:35 PM - Updated: 5/10/2006 2:36 PM

New developments in a case involving a Seminole County boy who's been missing for nearly three weeks.

9-year-old Colton Clark's adoptive mother tells the News on 6, he is a victim of sexual abuse and child pornography, and she fears Colton could be with the people who used to abuse him.

Investigators have been canvassing the state with flyers since Colton disappeared on April 20th. Becky Clark says she's now hired private investigators, which are posting Colton flyers across the nation. "I'm scared, I'm worried, but I am determined. I'm gathering strength I'm on the proactive searching mode and I will not stop."

The Seminole County Sheriff's Office says he's still following up leads, but thinks Colton may have run away.

Missing Oklahoma boy may be in Delray Beach

By Stephanie Slater Palm Beach Post Staff Writer  Friday, May 12, 2006

A 9-year-old boy missing for three weeks from Seminole County, Okla., may be in the Delray Beach area, police said this morning.

Colt Levi Clark was last seen at his aunt and uncle's home in Seminole County at about 2 p.m. April 20.

The Seminole County Sheriff's Department received an anonymous call Thursday that Clark was staying in Delray Beach, deputy Charles Miller said.

It is unknown where he may be staying or who he is with.

Clark, who is home-schooled, was put in his aunt and uncle's home by the Oklahoma Department of Human Services, Miller said.

He had a doctor's appointment April 20, and family members noticed him missing when it was time to leave the house.

Clark is not believed to have been abducted, Miller said. An Amber Alert was not issued for his disappearance.

Clark is described as 4 feet, 4 inches tall and 65 pounds with short brown hair and hazel eyes.

He was last seen wearing silver glasses, blue Wrangler brand jeans, a sky-blue shirt and white and blue tennis shoes.

Anyone with information about Clark is urged to call Delray Beach police at (561) 243-7800 or the Seminole County Sheriff's Department at (405) 257-5445.

Still no sign of missing Seminole County boy

AP - 7/1/2006 5:51 PM

SEMINOLE, Okla. (AP) _ Authorities in Seminole County say they still have no hard evidence to suggest where to find nine-year-old boy who went missing more than two months ago.

Investigators say they're still hoping to get a break in their search for Colton Levi Clark.

Colton disappeared on April 20th, just before a scheduled trip to Norman for a counseling session. Investigators initially believed he may have run away from home.

However, officials with the Seminole County Sheriff's Department and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation say it is unusual for a child who is on his own to go undetected for more than two months.

"On the afternoon of April 20, 2006, Colton's aunt and uncle were getting ready to take him for a scheduled appointment with his psychiatrist. When they looked for their nephew, he was nowhere to be found. A search of the home revealed that his backpack was also gone. The extremely upset couple immediately called the local law enforcement authorities and reported Colton as missing."

Also:

"An Amber Alert was not issued because authorities could not find evidence of abduction. However, an Oklahoma Missing child Alert was activated. Investigators believed Colton was a runaway, but did not dismiss the possibility of abduction."

Native American boy from Seminole still missing
Clark last seen in late April


SEMINOLE OK
Native American Times 9/1/2006

For parents, a missing child is obviously a terrible situation. For one Seminole family the nightmare has now been ongoing for several months after a nine-year-old boy vanished earlier this year. Officials at the Seminole County Sheriff's Department tell the Native American Times that Colton Clark has still not been located.

The case bring backs memories of the disappearance of Bethany Maria Tiner, a Native girl that vanished from Chickasha on Jan 1, 1999, when she was just four-years-old. Investigators believe that Tiner's non-custodial mother, Teresa Kennedy, took the child.

An account on the crime library's website (www.crimelibrary.com) relates the circumstances of Clark's disappearance. There is a warrant out for her arrest.http://nativetimes.com/index.asp?act...rticle_id=8144

Search Continues For Colton Clark, Six Months After His Disappearance
Monday October 23, 2006 10:40pm Reporter: Burt Mummolo Posted By: Kevin King

Seminole - A lot of people are wondering if a nine-year-old Oklahoma boy is still alive. It's a mystery that is six months old. Despite numerous searches, authorities have found no sign of Colton Clark, who went missing from his home last spring.

His picture is still hanging prominently on Seminole's storefronts. And, there are plenty of rumors going around as to what happened to Colt. But, six months later, there are very few facts.

"Yes, it's a mystery. It's one big mystery," says Seminole County Sheriff Joe Craig, who is working on a case that began with hints of runaway.

"Where would a 9 or 10-year-old kid go if he ran away?"

Reaching a dead end with that theory, the focus shifted.

"There are approximately 15 to 20 people that have been interviewed," Craig says.

10-Year-Old Colt Clark Still Missing After Nearly Eight Months

By Chuck Hustmyre  December 4, 2006

SEMINOLE, Okla. (Crime Library) - Colt Clark vanished from his home without a trace one afternoon last spring. He hasn't been seen since. The local sheriff has said publicly that he thinks Colt may be dead. Recently, the sheriff said the boy's foster parents- who are actually his aunt and uncle- may know more about Colt's disappearance than they are saying.

Colt's aunt, Rebecca Clark, said she last saw her nephew on April 20 at about 1:30 in the afternoon. He was sitting on the sofa at her house playing a video game with his 12-year-old brother, Homer.

Clark said she told the boys to get changed for a short road trip the three of them were taking into nearby Norman, Okla., where Colt had an appointment with a psychiatrist. Then she went into another room to get dressed. When she came back into the room where the boys were playing, Colt was gone.

There have been no updates on Colton. The case has gone cold. April 20th will be the one year anniversary that Colton was reported missing.

His brother Homer (Austin) is now living elsewhere (the Clarks have given up custody of him) and he is reported doing much better.

I still hope every day the light will shine on the truth as to what happened to Colton and where he is. He would be turning 11 soon. (May 24th)

Hopes and prayers in finding the answers.

Why this boy hasn't been found

By Julie Bisbee  Staff Writer

SEMINOLE - Investigators in Seminole County still are trying to determine the fate of Colton Levi Clark, a 9-year-old boy whose adoptive parents say they last saw him April 20, 2006. He had an appointment to meet with a counselor that same day, said Seminole County Sheriff Joe Craig.

"It makes you feel hopeless," Craig said. "You've gone out there and searched all this area and you feel like you've failed. We're talking about a 9-year-old boy. There hasn't been a night that I haven't gone to bed and seen this young man's face. I just keep thinking, "Why haven't we found this kid?'"

"Someone knows something"

More than a year after Colton disappeared, leads are exhausted.

A few days after the anniversary of Colton's disappearance, a caller reported seeing a boy who looked like Colton in a local Wal-Mart, but that turned out to be another sandy-haired boy with glasses, Craig said.

The investigation remains open, but the people who might know the most about the hours leading up to Colton's disappearance have stopped talking.

Colton's adoptive parents, Rex and Rebecca Clark, initially helped investigators, saying they thought Colton ran away.

"They gave us consent to search the house; we didn't find anything unusual," Craig said. "But what was odd to me is that they talked about Colt in the past tense  right out of the box."

A few days later when the Clarks were asked to take a lie detector test, they refused.

Repeated phone calls from The Oklahoman to the Clarks were unanswered and messages were not returned. The Clarks have offered a $10,000 reward for the safe return of Colton.

"My first thought is that they're trying to hide something," Craig said. "Someone knows something and they aren't telling."

Fragmented family

Colton and his older brother Homer haven't had an easy life. Their biological parents battled drug and alcohol addictions throughout their lives, said Jerry Clark, the boys' grandmother, who lives in Nicoma Park.

The boys lived with relatives, including their father's sister, and attended school in the Choctaw area.

Then, they went to live with their father's brother, Rex Clark, and his wife, Rebecca Clark. While they were there, Colton disappeared.

Today, Jerry Clark, is estranged from her son, Rex Clark, and his wife. They haven't communicated since Colton's disappearance.

But problems between them date back further, to when Rebecca Clark told authorities and the media the boys had been molested by other family members.

"They weren't abused, they were just poor little neglected boys," Jerry Clark said, rebutting those allegations. "There's nothing wrong with those boys. I know they were not abused when they were up here. We all helped with them."

At one point, Homer accused his family members, including his grandfather and older sister, of molesting him, but family members took lie detector tests and no charges were ever filed, said the boys' older sister, Raven Womack, 25, of Newalla.

Family members said they lost contact with the boys after Colton and Homer, who changed his name from Austin, moved in with Rex and Rebecca Clark.

Family members who used to pick up the boys on weekends or take them to school every morning no longer were allowed contact with Colton and Homer, said Jerry Clark.

Shortly after moving in with Rex and Rebecca Clark, the boys were taken out of school in Seminole and home-schooled.

In October, Homer Clark, 13, was picked up by authorities, who accused the youth of having broken into a neighbor's home and of taking a gun and a cell phone.

After that, Homer was taken into Department of Human Services custody. The Clarks since have relinquished their parental rights.

Craig said he's interviewed Homer, who said he didn't remember anything about the day Colton disappeared. Family members have been told that Homer is in a foster home somewhere in the state and is doing well, but wants nothing to do with his family.

Rex and Rebecca Clark had been registered nurses for several years before the boys came to live with them. Rex, a Vietnam veteran, voluntarily surrendered his nursing license in 2002. Rebecca's nursing license was suspended the same year. The Oklahoma Board of Nursing investigated complaints that the couple was removing tattoos from juveniles at a Wewoka group home for boys.

Neither was licensed to do that sort of medical procedure and had not obtained signatures from the parents of the three boys investigators say had the procedure, which resulted in third-degree burns and scarring.

Rebecca Clark worked at the facility, Rex did not, according to documents from the Oklahoma Board of Nursing. The Clarks didn't show up for a hearing to discuss the complaints, saying Rex was too ill to attend the hearing and Rebecca had to care for him.

A doctor who was treating Rex Clark at the time said he suffered from a "major depressive disorder with psychoses and PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)." The affidavit also said Rex's mental state had worsened by treatment for Hepatitis C.

Family fears boy is dead

Jerry Clark believes Colton is dead, but she continues to pray that his body is found and the family can properly bury him.

"A little boy just don't disappear in a small place like Seminole," Clark said.

Craig said he's not ready to close the case. A glossy flier featuring Colton's face is still taped to the door near Craig's office in Wewoka.

Craig said he expects to try to speak again with his older brother soon about the details of the last day he saw Colton.

"I've been waiting to interview him until he was in a good environment," Craig said. "He's a sharp young man. I think he knows something."

Craig said he initially interviewed the boy when he lived with the Clarks and then met with him again when he was in DHS custody.

"He is a totally different boy," Craig said.

For Jerry Clark, it's unclear what justice is in the disappearance of one grandson and the loss of another one.

"I really do think Colton's life is over," she said. "The only thing that comforts me, if he is dead, is that he went to heaven because he was so young. He deserves a headstone so people can go by and visit him every once in a while."

Leads dry up in Seminole boy's disappearance

Associated Press

SEMINOLE, Okla. (AP) - More than 16 months after the disappearance of 9-year-old Colton Levi Clark, Seminole County authorities say their leads have dried up and they're beginning to lose hope that the boy will be found.

Colton's adoptive parents say they last saw him April 20, 2006, the same day he had an appointment to meet with a counselor, said Seminole County Sheriff Joe Craig.

"It makes you feel hopeless," Craig said. "You've gone out there and searched all this area and you feel like you've failed. We're talking about a 9-year-old boy. There hasn't been a night that I haven't gone to bed and seen this young man's face. I just keep thinking, 'Why haven't we found this kid?'"

The investigation remains open, but the people who might know the most about the hours leading up to Colton's disappearance have stopped talking.

Colton's adoptive parents, Rex and Rebecca Clark, initially helped investigators, saying they thought Colton ran away.

"They gave us consent to search the house; we didn't find anything unusual," Craig said. "But what was odd to me is that they talked about Colt in the past tense _ right out of the box."

A few days later when the Clarks were asked to take a lie detector test, they refused.

Repeated phone calls from The Oklahoman to the Clarks were unanswered and messages were not returned. The Clarks have offered a $10,000 reward for the safe return of Colton.

"My first thought is that they're trying to hide something," Craig said. "Someone knows something and they aren't telling."

Colton and his older brother Homer lived with relatives, including their father's sister, as their biological parents battled drug and alcohol addictions throughout, said Jerry Clark, the boys' grandmother, who lives in Nicoma Park.

Then, they went to live with their father's brother, Rex Clark, and his wife, Rebecca Clark. While they were there, Colton disappeared.

Craig said he's interviewed Homer, now 13, who said he didn't remember anything about the day Colton disappeared. Family members have been told that Homer is in a foster home somewhere in the state and is doing well, but wants nothing to do with his family.

Jerry Clark believes Colton is dead, but she continues to pray that his body is found and the family can properly bury him.

"A little boy just don't disappear in a small place like Seminole," Clark said.

Oklahoma investigators offering $5,000 reward for information about missing Wewoka boy

By Associated Press 5:05 AM CDT, June 25, 2010

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation officials are offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information about a missing Wewoka boy.

Colton Clark was last seen near his home April 20, 2006. OSBI officials say he and his older brother lived with their aunt and uncle after their parents terminated their rights to the boys.

Investigators say initially, local and state law enforcement scoured the area near Colton's home in search of the 9-year-old. Since then, OSBI officials say agents have followed dozens of leads and continue to do so.

Spokeswoman Jessica Brown says officials want the public to remember Colton's story, and for anyone with information to contact investigators.
