In one day I received a facebook post from Norway saying that Disappeared had aired Clinton's show there today.  I also received a message from Louisiana from a girl that believes Clinton's remains in a certain area.  I sent the info the law enforcement but we have had similar info before, not sure if it will lead to anything.

Carolyn, thank you for letting us know about this.  It must be incredibly difficult with all the starts and stops, dead ends and leads over time.   Yet, you stay the course for your son.  This may be the tip that's needed to bring Clinton home.  Bless you and your family.  I hope you get the answers you need.

Deputies searching Red River Parish for missing person
Tuesday, July 25th 2017, 8:45 pm EDT
RED RIVER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -
Acting on a tip, deputies from two parishes are searching part of Red River Parish for a missing person.

The search is underway in an area southeast of Coushatta, authorities said.

2 VIDEO'S!!!!!

Bossier sheriff's deputies are assisting their Red River Parish counterparts in the search.

That is because it could be one of three people missing from Bossier Parish if the tip is accurate, a Bossier Sheriff's Office spokesman said.

The Bossier Sheriff's Office website lists these three people as missing:

Clinton Devon Nelson, since Sept. 1, 2006,
Gregory A. Vice Jr., since March 21, 2000, and,
Arrilla Naomi Webb-Vaul, since March 17, 1979.
The search will continue into the night then, if need be, resume around daylight Wednesday, Bossier sheriff's Lt. Bill Davis said.

UPDATE: Carolyn said they brought in dog's that hit on this particular area after a tip came in. The dog's detected human remains. Excavator's were brought in to dig, but no remains were found. They did find some fabrics. I hope she comes in to tell you the rest of the story about this particular place...I don't think it's my place to say what she told me happened to Clinton...however, the search continues until the tip can be proven.

Thank you Nut44x4 - I appreciate you keeping everyone up to date.  There are a number of leads being followed.  We have reinstated the $20,000 reward for the location of Clinton's remains and the arrest/conviction of the person(s) responsible.  People are talking.  Law enforcement is staying busy. It sounds like Dateline will be doing a story and we have gotten a lot of social media coverage.  I ask anyone and everyone to share Clinton's poster.  You can find the posts on Facebook.  Thank you Monkey's!

It sounds like we will be getting some press coverage.  The Bossier Press will be doing a story on Clinton on August 9 - his 32nd birthday.  On September 1, Dateline will be doing a story.  That is the 11 year anniversary of Clinton's disappearance.  There have been a lot of leads coming in.  The search last week, definitely got people talking again.  I know that the Bossier Sherriff's office is going to be working on some other local media between Clinton's birthday and the anniversary!  Keep praying!

As per Carolyn: "8/23/2017 - This is notification that all reward money offered by the family of Clinton Nelson has been withdrawn. The only exception will be if law enforcement indicates that they were working with someone prior to our withdrawl." Nothing has changed. We are still seeking answers. But we are coming up on 11 years and the reward money does not seem to make a difference in bringing forward answers. My son has a child and that money would be better served going into his college fund and helping to meet his needs. I am praying law enforcment will find Clinton and the people responsible.

Despite No Leads, Clinton Nelson’s Mother Will “Never Give Up”
by JACKIE MONTALVO
COLD CASE SPOTLIGHT
SEP 3 2017, 6:11 PM ET

It’s been 11 years since Carolyn Johnson first received a call telling her that her son, Clinton Nelson, was missing. But Carolyn’s desire to find out the truth about her son’s disappearance has only grown stronger in the years since.

On September 1, 2006, the soon-to-be-father went missing from Princeton, Louisiana after attending a party over Labor Day weekend.

Carolyn told Dateline she was notified two days after he initially went missing. “Clinton’s father called me and asked if I had heard from Clinton. I told him ‘No, what’s wrong?’ Because at that point I knew something had happened,” Carolyn said.

Clinton was born and raised in Spearfish, South Dakota, but had moved down to Bossier Parish, Louisiana in April to get to know his biological father, Jeff, and to take up a new job on an oil rig.

There, he started working as a roughneck, a nickname for anyone whose occupation requires hard manual labor, on an oil rig. Carolyn said his bosses considered him one of the hardest workers they’d ever seen.

“He was so proud of himself,” Carolyn told Dateline, about Clinton’s growing success on the rig. He was one of the few who had not given up on the tough work, and his mother said it was paying off financially.

Clinton was last seen at a friend’s Labor Day party in Princeton. Then the facts start to get fuzzy. Little is known about what happened after 8:30 p.m. that night, but authorities confirmed that the last contact with Clinton was a phone call from his father, Jeff. Carolyn told Dateline that during the call, Jeff claimed his son whispered that he thought the police were following him. Then the phone went dead.

Lieutenant Bill Davis of the Bossier Sheriff’s Office says that since then, many rumors have gone around, “as tends to happen during missing person cases.” However, the detectives on the case have followed every lead no matter how farfetched. “We’ve done a lot of the local investigating – almost exhausted everything,” Lt. Davis said.

Sgt. Chad Madden, the current detective on the case told Dateline, “I’ve personally interviewed over 100 people, but we’ve never been able to connect the dots.” The Bossier Sheriff’s Office says the next step is turning to a bigger audience and trying to reach someone out there who might know something.

However, Carolyn told Dateline, “valuable time was lost” when thinking back to the first weeks of Clinton’s disappearance. Following his lack of contact with friends and family, Carolyn told his father, Jeff, to call the police and report him missing. Carolyn feels their concerns were met with some skepticism, and that the police waited to act on their report until Clinton didn’t show up to work after the long holiday weekend.

The Bossier Sheriff’s Office confirmed that it wasn’t until five days later that authorities began their search around Princeton, Louisiana.

“For those first weeks it was horrible,” Carolyn said, “Every time the phone would ring, I’d say, ‘Oh, God. Please let it be Clinton.’ [But] it never was.”

Authorities and Carolyn feel certain that there are people in Louisiana who know more details about that night. “Somebody out there knows what happened, it’s just a matter of finding the right someone,” Lt. Bill Davis said.

Among the rumors of what could have happened, some have speculated that Clinton was beaten up and robbed. Apparently, Clinton had been boasting to friends and acquaintances in Princeton about his new well-paying job, including the $2,300 he had on him that night, and a check he had waiting for him back at home.

“I always joked he had no fear gene,” Carolyn said. And that lack of fear, and his small-town upbringing, are just a few things his mother thinks about potentially playing a role in what happened that night.


“I didn’t raise him to question others. He wouldn’t know to be wary of people,” Carolyn said.

Authorities confirmed that drugs were present at the party, so another possible scenario is that Clinton slipped back into a troubled past. Carolyn said Clinton had previously struggled with drugs, and it has been rumored he could have overdosed at the party. In Louisiana, providing drugs that lead to an overdose can result in a murder charge. Carolyn said this would give good reason as to why no one wants to talk about this case, if the rumor is true.

The police have not been able to rule out all of the rumors. As Sgt. Chad Madden told Dateline, “everything is still on the table.”

What happened to Clinton that night remains a mystery over a decade later, but his family is not giving up its fight. Clinton’s son Austin was born just after his disappearance. “In many ways, Austin is the spitting image of his father,” Carolyn said.

Since then, Carolyn has adopted Austin and said, “He’s what helped me keep going, to keep pushing.” She said that he often asks about the father he never met, and why he has never come home.

Carolyn told Dateline, “I just hope this lets people, especially in Louisiana, know that we have not given up. I will never give up looking for my son.”

Clinton is 6’1” tall, weighing 160 lbs. with blonde hair and blues eyes. He may be wearing glasses. He would be 32 years old today. Anyone with information regarding Clinton’s case is urged to contact the Bossier Sheriff’s Office at (318) 965-2203.

Thank you for posting.  Please note, there is one error that was corrected.  This says I have adopted Austin.  I have not.  I have custody and guardianship. I asked Dateline to correct the error.

I appreciate all of you monkeys for helping to keep Clinton's story alive and out in the public.  This is definitely the most difficult thing any family can go through.  Still praying we have answers someday.
