Colton Clark – The Unpublished Article
Posted by KindraLore on November 21, 2006
Well I was disappointed today when I waited and waited patiently for the article on Colton to be published at Court TV and it wasn’t. I emailed crime writer Chuck Hustmyre and asked him what was going on.
He informed me that Court TV decided not to publish the article due to the fact that one had been published a few months ago. Here is the article they are referring to:Crime Library – Colton Clark
He did send me the article and gave me permission to post it here. I want to thank Chuck for taking the time to look into Colton’s case and to write this article and to at least allow me to publish it here.
Here is the unpublished article. Chuck wanted me to say that he would like to hear from anyone that knows anything in the disappearance of Colton Clark.
Colt Levi Clark
SEMINOLE, Okla. (Crime Library) — Colt Clark vanished from his aunt and uncle’s home last spring. He hasn’t been seen since. Rebecca Clark says when she last saw her 9-year-old nephew he was sitting on the sofa, playing a video game with his 12-year-old brother, Homer.
Clark says she told the boys to get changed for a trip into Norman. Colt had an appointment with a psychiatrist. Later that evening, a case worker from the state Department of Human Services was supposed to stop by to talk to Colt. Rebecca’s husband, Rex, the boys’ uncle, is disabled and was lying down in his bedroom while Rebecca got ready for their trip. When she walked into the living room, Rebecca says, Homer was there but Colt was gone.
Rebecca Clark waited more than six hours before calling the Sheriff’s Office to report the boy missing.
Several area canvasses, including one by the hi-tech search and recovery outfit Texas EquuSearch, turned up nothing.
In October, Homer Clark disappeared, but his aunt didn’t report him missing for five days. However, once alerted, sheriff’s deputies quickly found the missing boy hiding out at a nearby trailer park.
Colt and Homer have been living with their aunt and uncle for the last three years, since the Department of Human Services took them away from their parents. Seminole County Sheriff Joe Craig says accusations against the parents indicate the boys were victims of sexual abuse.
In the eight months since Colt disappeared, no credible information has turned up as to his whereabouts. “We haven’t developed any more leads,” Sheriff Craig says. “We’re stumped.”
Craig says he suspects Rebecca and Rex Clark know more than they’re saying. Both have refused to take polygraph examinations. “To this day,” the sheriff says, “when you talk to them about Colt they talk about him in the past tense.”
At the time he disappeared, Colt Levi Clark was 4 feet 4 inches tall and weighed 65 pounds. He wears glasses and has a scar above his left eyebrow. He had on blue jeans, a sky blue shirt, and blue and white sneakers.
Anyone with information about Colt Levi Clark is asked to call either the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) or the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office at (405) 382-9340.
