Circumstances of Disappearance

McClam was last seen by family during the early morning hours, playing video games in his home at the Naval Weapons Station in Goose Creek, South Carolina on March 30, 1997. A father and son, who had been riding bikes along the dirt road on Easter, reported seeing McClam between 2:00 and 7:00, walking along the road dressed only in boxer shorts and tennis shoes. Kevin appeared to be alone and not under duress or appear to be injured. Two other people reported seeing McClam at the Weapons Station's McDonald's on March 31 and April 1. He was alone both times.

He was believed to have been wearing an Orlando Magic T-shirt, a striped shirt and white pants, but a construction worker found similar clothes on March 31 along a dirt road a nearby construction site. His clothes, although covered with spray paint, showed no signs of a struggle. Kevin was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. He was in the eighth grade at Marrington Middle School at the time of his disappearance and was considered a good student.

McClam had no problems at school or family turmoil that might indicate he ran away. He had no history of running away or discipline problems and apparently didn't pack any clothes before leaving home. McClam enjoyed playing basketball at the time of his disappearance and is known as quiet and shy with just a few friends. He is not believed to have left of his own accord however it is unknown what may have caused his disappearance. Foul play is suspected.
