    Details of Disappearance

    Colton resided with his aunt and uncle, James "Rex" and Rebecca Clark, at the time of his disappearance; they had obtained legal custody of him after he was taken from his parents. He was last seen at Rex and Rebecca's Wewoka, Oklahoma home at approximately 1:00 p.m. Colton's aunt and uncle stated they noticed he was missing when it was time to go. His backpack reportedly disappeared also; they theorized he had run away from home.

    Rex and Rebecca stated Colton was mistreated by his parents, who both had substance abuse problems. He and his older brother came to live with their aunt and uncle three years prior to Colton's disappearance, and had their names changed. The boys were both homeschooled. Because of their living situation, both Colton and his brother were legally wards of state. Caseworkers from the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (DHS) repeatedly tried to meet with the boys, but each time they scheduled a meeting, Rex and Rebecca would cancel it. The DHS finally insisted on seeing the children and a caseworker was going to come over on April 20. Rex and Rebecca stated Colton was frightened of the DHS and jumped out a window before the caseworker could arrive, and they never saw him again. Colton's brother told the police he left behind his two favorite pairs of shoes and he didn't think he would have done that if he was running away.

    Police stated Colton's guardians seemed uninterested in finding him and didn't appear to be worried about him. Rex told them he had trained both his nephews in survival techniques and thought Colton could live on his own for months. The Clarks initially agreed to take a lie detector test, but changed their minds and wouldn't go through with it. Colton's brother was removed from his aunt and uncle's home shortly after Colton disappeared. He changed his name and moved out of state, and investigators don't know where he lives now.

    Although Colton's aunt and uncle stated they believed he may be being concealed by his biological parents, but both of them were ruled out as suspects early on in the investigation. The circumstances surrounding Colton's disappearance are unclear and the child's case remains unsolved.
