The Bossier Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the missing person case of Clint Nelson, who was last seen 12 years ago.
Clinton was last seen at a party at a residence near US Hwy. 80 and Ward Lane in Princeton, on Sept. 1, 2006. Detectives say Clinton walked out of the residence around 8:30 p.m. in an unknown direction. He was last seen wearing a t-shirt, blue jeans, and a new pair of white tennis shoes. Clinton wore some distinctive round seeing glasses with silver wire rims. Clinton was 6 feet, 1 inch and weighed about 160 pounds. He also had blonde hair and blue eyes. He had moved down from up north to be closer to his father and to work here in the oil field industry.
“Someone has information that will help us bring closure to his family,” said Sheriff Julian Whittington. “Please speak up, and give us a call.” Bossier deputies have followed over the years that have led to numerous searches throughout the entire parish and other areas.
Last year in late July, Bossier detectives joined deputies with the Red River Parish Sheriff’s Office to search for possible human remains of Nelson; none were found. That search received media attention and interest in the community, but it was one of the hundreds of leads that Bossier deputies have followed over the years that have led to numerous searches throughout the entire parish and other areas. Detectives know that one such tip just might provide the answers detectives are looking for.
If you have any information about this case or any the other missing person cases, please call the Bossier Sheriff’s Office at (318) 965-2203 or Bossier Crimestoppers at (318) 424-4100. Your information, even though you may deem it insignificant, may just be the lead detectives need to help bring closure to a family.
