Colton Clark disappeared in 2006.

SEMINOLE, Okla. – Residents in one Oklahoma community are wanting to honor the life of a little boy who is believed to have been murdered.

On April 20, 2006, police say 9-year-old Colton Clark disappeared from his Seminole home.

He was reported missing by his foster-mother and aunt, Rebecca Clark.

Rescue crews and authorities searched for days around the Clark’s property, but never found any signs of Colton.

On Friday, the Seminole County district attorney announced that Rex and Rebecca Clark were arrested in connection with Colton’s disappearance.

Now, the residents of Seminole are gathering together to honor Colton’s life.

On April 23, a vigil will be held for Colton at the American Legion Park in downtown Seminole. The park is located between City Hall and the American Legion building.

The “Candles for Colton and Homer” vigil will begin at 8 p.m. and all members of the community are encouraged to attend. Visitors are encouraged to start meeting at the park around 7:30 p.m.

A group is also working to raise money to purchase a headstone for Colton.
