Details of Disappearance
A "vehicle of interest" was seen near Colt's home. It is described as a 2003 gold GMC extended cab, long-bed pickup with tinted windows, a black bumper, and Oklahoma tags. A search of 2500 acres, including an abandoned house, yielded no sign of the child.
There was a reported sighting of a young boy walking along a roadway about a mile-and-a-half from the missing boy's home. Investigators think that he may have run away because his backpack is missing and he was scheduled to have an appointment with a psychiatrist. The child's adoptive mother stated that Colt was a victim of sexual abuse and child pornography, and she fears he could be with the people that abused him in the past.
In December 2006, it was reported that the local sheriff has said publicly that he believes Colt may be deceased, and that his adoptive parents may know more than they are saying. The adoptive mother waited six hours to make the initial police report. On September 30, 2006, Colt's 12-year-old brother ran away from the adoptive parents, though he was quickly recovered and placed in the care of the Department of Human Services.
Colt disappeared between one and two p.m. from his aunt and uncle's home. There was no evidence that he was abducted, so an Amber Alert could not be issued. Authorities did issue an Oklahoma Missing Child Alert, which is distributed statewide and within 200 miles of the state.
