SEMINOLE, Okla. (AP) -- More than 16 months after the disappearance of 9-year-old Colton Levi Clark, Seminole County authorities say their leads have dried up and they're beginning to lose hope that the boy will be found.

Seminole County Sheriff Joe Craig says Colton's adoptive parents say they last saw him April 20th, 2006, the same day he had an appointment to meet with a counselor.

The investigation remains open, but the people who might know the most about the hours leading up to Colton's disappearance have stopped talking.

Colton's adoptive parents, Rex and Rebecca Clark, initially helped investigators, saying they thought Colton ran away.

But a few days later when the Clarks were asked to take a lie detector test, they refused.

Craig says he suspects the couple is trying to hide something and that someone has information that could lead to finding Colton.
