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.
Craig says everyone has passed preliminary interviews.
“It’s more or less kind of at a standstill,” he says. “They just don’t know.”
Dana Taylor has a flyer posted on her storefront and a grandson named Tyler that resembles Colt. A trait put to the test at a restaurant by police continually on the lookout.”
“They had to show identification that Tyler belongs to them.”
As for finding the real Colt, hope for that happy ending is waning.
“We’re just hoping and praying that Colt’s still alive. But, the length of time that goes by doesn’t sound good.”
“It would be a miracle. It’d just be wonderful. But, after six months and no sightings or anything, my gut tells me no.”
Colt’s family wanted to be interviewed, but was detained in Oklahoma City on family business. They say they will continue the search for their son.
If you have any information on Colt’s whereabouts, you’re asked to call the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office at 405-257-5445.
