The Seminole Police Department will host a candlelight vigil in remembrance of a boy who has not been seen since 2006.

The vigil for Colton Clark will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Reynolds Wellness Center, 1001 E. Strother Avenue. Clark was reported missing in April 2016.

His aunt and uncle, Rex and Rebecca Clark, were convicted of first degree murder this week in connection to his disappearance. The two were Colton's foster parents at the time he went missing and initially stated the 9-year-old ran away. The case was reopened in 2016 and the Clarks were charged after prosecutors said Colton's brother told police the couple had abused them both. The brother said he last saw Colton lying face down and motionless on a couch.

The two face life in prison.
