    Details of Disappearance

    Clark was last seen at approximately 6:00 p.m. on October 16, 2005 at his daughter's residence in the vicinity of the 13000 block of Quinn Road in Pleasanton, Kansas. There was a family gathering there at the time. He has never been heard from again. Dogs tracked his scent to the highway, where they lost it.

    Clark is a retired truck driver and his family believes his dementia may make him think he is still a truck driver. He may be traveling across the country with truck drivers and is possibly unaware he is missing. Skeletal remains found in Mesquite, Texas were thought to be his, but DNA testing ruled out this possibility. His case remains unsolved.
