A Seminole local I have been speaking with about Colton for a long time now, emailed me and told me that the Seminole Producer came out with a new article on Colton Clark. I was so excited, thinking that there must have been a break in the case, especially when I read the headlines. Then I started reading and became even more excited, as it sounded as though Colt had been found alive and well with his biological mother Terry Clark! It was not to be though.
I am so glad that at least his story is still out there and that law enforcement is still pursuing his case. Hopefully one day, we will find Colton or at least find out what happened to him.
The Seminole Producer is a paid subscription site now, so i have of course paid for the article and here it is. Please click on the images if you want to enlarge and view the complete article.

In the Spring of 2006 a DHS caseworker arrived at the residence of Rebecca and James Rex Clark in Wewoka, Oklahoma for a scheduled appointment with 9-year-old Colton Clark. It was around 4:00PM that afternoon.
Upon arriving, the caseworker was told that Colton Levi Clark was missing. The caseworker contacted the Seminole Country Sheriff’s Department and soon a search ensued for a nine-year-old boy.
Becky and Rex stated that they had plans to go to a neighboring town of Norman at 1:00PM that afternoon for a scheduled appointment for Colton with a psychiatrist.
Becky’s story to the Sheriff’s Department was that Rex went to take a nap before the appointment and she went to get ready. When she looked for Colton his window was open and he was gone. She stated that she was not concerned at first; she thought he might be waiting in the car.
After looking in the family vehicle she realized he was not there either. It’s unclear as to why the Clarks would have waited from around 11:00AM until the time the caseworker arrived at 4:00PM in order to report the boy missing.
Becky told the Seminole Sheriff’s department that Colton had been in trouble the previous couple of days for supposedly stealing beer from a neighbor’s home. She stated that Colton’s backpack and some food were missing.
Colton and Austin Clark were born to Monty and Terri Clark. Public records show that Monty had a history of domestic violence, supposedly against Terri. Terri was also known to have left for long periods at a time without the family knowing her whereabouts. Both were reported drug abusers.
When Monty Clark was again arrested and ordered into a drug rehab and Terri was already in jail, the boys were placed with Becky and Rex Clark. Rex and Monty are brothers therefore Rex being the boy’s uncle.
Eventually Rebecca and Rex Clark adopted the boys. They were renamed. Colton became Colt Levi River Clark and Austin became and Homer Justice Levi Clark. Becky claims the boys chose these names for symbolic reasons and a fresh start.
Becky Clark herself states on the Court TV boards that the boys had an ominous life with their biological parents. She claims one of the boys were born cocaine addicted while Terri Clark was in jail and there were accusations of child molestation, porn and abuse.
She posted on the Court TV board:
“My boy’s reported to the LE last year that the Bio family had sexually molested them since the ages of approx 3 yr’s old. The boys futher stated that the parents prostituted them to pay off drug deabts. They stated the parents were paid for their involvement in child pornography. No arrests were made because no evidence could be found. The police stated to much time had passed, and some persons had moved , and the boy,s knew knick names. The father was polygraphed and a few of his associates too. This was 3-2005. He passed and they did also. However; it was later proved that several of them did lie and past the test. This is not uncommon for criminals and sociopaths.
The Mother would not come in for the test.
The father is in a drug rehab., but receives passes. He is also the driver for the facility. The facility is about 30 minutes away. He jumped over our back fence, and the date was 1-27-2006. He was in the facility at that time. Many of the LE state that he must be a snitch for the LE in those counties because he has had 2 many arrest for 2 many serious domestic assault charges, DUI’s and violent crimes along with position and sells of drugs. The Children were born Cocain addicted also with various other substances. The Mothers water broke in the Pot. County Jail for various crimes and the baby was born early. This is just a fragment of the childrens life. God had his hand on them then, and we have to believe Colt will be returned safe. If, that is clearing the parents excuse me!!!!!”
When the boys came to live with the Clarks, they were originally attending school in Bowlegs. Eventually the children were taken out and home schooled.
The search continued that evening until 4:00AM. Eventually teams were brought in and searches were conducted on ATVs, horseback, by helicopter and people scoured the area looking for Colton. Abandoned houses, woods, the railroad tracks, water reservoirs; every place was searched with no sign.
Both cadaver and search dogs were brought in. Neither hit on anything, not even near or around the Clark residence where Colton resided. Colton seemed to have vanished into thin air.
Leads were followed. One lead was that a truck was seen on the Clark property that day. According to the Sheriff’s Department the truck that was reported to have been on the Clarks property never was actually on their property, but rather a few miles away. The owner of the truck was questioned after another party reported seeing a similar truck with a boy in it. It turned out t be a grandfather who was dropping his (much younger than Colton) grandson at daycare and that the boy did not even bare a resemblance to Colton.
Another report was that from an unidentified caller who reported that Colton was spotted in Delray Beach, Florida. This report turns out to be unsubstantiated and in fact the address given did not exist.
On May 24, Colt’s 10th birthday, Texas EquuSearch, a hi-tech search and recovery outfit, used a remote-controlled aircraft equipped with a thermal imaging system to peer into woods, ponds, streams, and rivers surrounding the Clarks’ home. They found nothing.
Tim Miller (pictured), who founded Texas EquuSearch after the 1984 abduction and murder of his daughter Laura, added $10,000 to the reward for Colt’s return.
Neither Rebecca nor Rex Clark was present when Texas EquuSearch came to search for their son. Instead they say they were following a lead that they received when an anonymous caller contacted the Clarks at their residence and told them that Colton was spotted at a motel in Dallas, Texas.
Rebecca and Rex Clark were brought in for questioning and originally agreed to polygraph testing but then eventually refused. Rebecca stated that Rex and Homer Clark both suffered Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and were on medications and their attorney advised against it.
Becky on many occasions maintained that Colton ran away and on others stated that the bio parents Monty and or Terri Clark had something to do with Colton’s disappearance.
Eventually the Clarks had very little contact with law enforcement regarding the case and would no longer do any media interviews. The case had come to a stop.
On September 30, 2006 the Seminole County Sheriff’s department were once again at the Clark’s home. This time it was to investigate a reported burglary regarding a neighboring property. A gun and cell phone was stolen.
At that point Rex and Rebecca Clark again reported their son missing. This time it was Homer Clark. Rebecca stated that she had not seen Homer since September 26th at 5:30AM when she took Rex to the emergency room for heart related issues. Rex had remained at the hospital and they had just returned home that day.
It was reported that Becky had made at least daily treks from the hospital to the Clark residence, yet never reported the 13-year-old Homer Clark missing.
Once again there was a search ensuing for a Clark child. Search dogs were brought out and Homer Clark was located around 8:30PM that evening at a local mobile home park.
He was taken into protective custody.
Eventually Rebecca and Rex Clark gave up their parental rights to Homer Clark. His whereabouts are unknown to me.
The sign for Colton that hung on the fence of the Clark property has since been taken down. Another winter is approaching and Colton Levi Clark is still missing.
Law enforcement authorities consider him to be a missing and endangered person. Colton was last seen wearing silver glasses, a sky-blue shirt, blue and white tennis shoes and blue Wrangler jeans. He has a scar above his left eyebrow. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of this missing child and/or this case is urged to immediately contact the Seminole County Sheriff’s Department (1-405-257-5445) or (1-405-382-9340).
