Rebecca and Rex Clark were arrested according to Red Dirt Report. Colton was reported as a runaway on April 20, 2006, when his Aunt and Uncle who were also his adopted parents told police he “jumped out the window and took off running.”
In 2006, investigators used dogs to search for Colton, but nothing was detected. The search continued around the property and nothing was found. At the time Colt’s brother told the police that he would not have left his shoes behind. Before his disappearance DHS kept making appointments to talk to the Clark’s but they cancelled every one. When they were given an ultimate, the Clarks called the police to report that Colton ran away.

Colt’s brother Austin was removed from the home, but because of his name change they do not know where he resides now. Colton will be 20-years-old in May.
