John, AKA "Johnny", Clark was last seen on September 6, 1993. Around that time, detectives found Johnny's truck burned down to the frame in Crawford County, south of Devil's Den. The fire was set intentionally. Clark's family does not believe that Johnny set the fire because he took great pride in the truck, since he had just had it painted and fitted for a new camper shell. Johnny also left behind his last paycheck. Johnny's sister reported him missing in October of 1993.
Detective Dan Baker of the Fayetteville Police Department said."Nothing showed that he wanted to run off, he was just kind of the average hardworking guy. He was sort of affiliated with an outlaw motorcycle group. He would spend time down there and there was drugs and alcohol abuse going on at that place. That is what led us to possibly somebody tried to do something with him." Police have looked into that possibility, but say nothing has panned out.
At the time of his disappearance, he worked for Walmart laying floors and carpets. He often traveled for work, and enjoyed camping.
