Colton Levi Clark or “Colt” as he was called, disappeared on the afternoon of April 20, 2006. Colt was living with his uncle and aunt in Wewoka, Oklahoma who had adopted him. Colt was 9 at the time of his disappearance and has since turned 10.
On that afternoon, Colt had an appointment with the psychiatrist, and according to his aunt and uncle, they noticed him missing when it was time to go.
Colt had a very rough life in his short 9 years. Reports vary but according to an inside source, his parents were arrested for drug abuse and that is how Colt came to live with the Uncle and Aunt. (Rex and Becky)
According to the Aunt and Uncle side of the family, there was also child porn charges and allegations have been made that because of this, a porn and drug ring were busted and that Colt had to testify against them all including his own parents. I have found nothing to substantiate this claim.
There was no Amber Alert issued in this case due to the fact that the authorities could not prove that Colt was abducted. This is where I have a problem. The Amber Alert is an excellent system, but I feel that it should be changed to if the child is within a certain age (say 12 and under) then there should be an Amber Alert, dispute the fact that they cannot prove abduction.
After all, how many 9 years do you know that can make it out on their own?
In any case, there has been hardly any media regarding this case, which I think comes down to the parents and the legal authorities. The last report I can find of Colton is dated May 10, 2006. Texas Equusearch searched for Colton right after his disappearance but their site has not been updated with any further information regarding that search.
I have contacted all media in that area as well as the sheriff’s department in order to shake the tree, but have still not heard anything. I did speak with Steve Huff, crimeblogger and writer for Court TV’s Crime Library and he assured me he would look into it.

At this point I would just like to know, where is Colton Levi Clark? Is he dead. Was he abducted? Why aren’t the media in the case at all at this point? Don’t the media have a duty to help when they can? Why aren’t the police actively persuing this case?
