Scott Allen Kleeschulte went missing in 1988 at the age of 9. He was last seen walking away from his home on Leverenz Drive towards West Adams in St. Cloud, Missouri.
A Reditt post would later bring this case to the forefront, and Scott remains missing to this day.
Scott was last seen wearing a black shirt that said "Rude Dog" on it, khaki pants, and red and black high top sneakers. He is listed as having brown hair and blue eyes with three small moles on his face and a small scar on his chin. He was 9 years old at the time of his disappearance and was 4' 4" tall with a weight of about 60 pounds.
He was last seen leaving his home to head to an area where neighborhood children were known to play. A heavy thunderstorm that caused flooding happened on the same day. Witnesses state that they saw Scott both before and after the storm. He has not been seen since.
Bloodhounds were used in the search for Scott, and they had tracked his scent about 5 miles on Fox Hill road before loosing the trail. Streams were dredged, numerous tunnels searched and no evidence was ever found relating to Scott.
Some think he was drowned in the flash flood that affected the area, however, authorities and the family believe that Scott was abducted. In 2007 authorities looked at the possibility that Michael Devlin, (the kidnapper of Shawn Hornbeck) may have had a hand in Scotts disappearance. Though never ruled out, the task force was disbanded due to no evidence of additional victims of Michael Devlin.
In 2011 other information came forward that caused a home near Scott's to be searched , and neighbors to be re-interviewed. Nothing came of that search.
In 2013 there was an informant that commented on Scott's case. The details of that are found below. Though nothing came of that either.
There was also the Redditt post that brought this case attention i n2016. The details of that can be found below. Nothing has come of that post and it has since been removed.

If you are not familiar with Reddit, it is a space where users can post into subreddits about many topics, some general to super specific subreddits.
A user posted a story about when he was child, in the 80s.
He stated that they had gone to an area where they were known to get together and play to find another local boy there, he describes a scenario where the boy "falls" . He also describes how they went to check on him and found him in a unnatural position with blood coming from his mouth. He said they all ran home and never spoke of it again. The post was later deleted but a screenshot is shown below.
A commenter on the original post was able to deduce the area where the Redditt poster was posting from (Missouri) and able to find the story of Scott Kleeschulte. The factors matched, the age, the area, and the fact that Scott has never been seen since. It is suspected his body would have been buried in mud slides or buried due to the extreme storms and flooding in the area that day.
The local PD was alerted to the post however, maintains their belief that Scott Kleeschlulte was abducted.
In 2013, a former police officer, turned informant, after a federal fraud charge commented on the disappearance of Scott Kleeschulte.
He claims that he was incarcerated in St. Charles, Missouri by U.S. Marshalls. He states that during his time here obtained written documentation of the details of not only Scott's disappearance but for 13 to 15 other child victims that he claims are all perpetuated by the same man between the years of 1978 and 2005.
The St. Charles Mo Prosecutor has stated that these claims were investigated and that the informant did not provide anything that has led to any new discovery of evidence but that the investigation into the claims in ongoing.
