Kevin Lamont McClam (born April 2, 1982) is a missing teenaged boy from South Carolina.
McClam was last seen at 1:00 a.m. at his family's residence. The home is located in the Charleston Naval Weapons Station as his family was in the U.S. Navy at the time.
He stayed up late playing video games as his family members went to sleep. The family awakened to find out he'd disappeared. His clothing was discovered two days later separated by 5-10 feet along the road at a nearby construction site. His clothing was covered with spray paint but showed no signs of a struggle.
Witnesses reported seeing a person matching McClam's description walking alone around a dirt road near the construction site during the afternoon hours of the day he disappeared. The person was wearing only sneakers and boxer shorts.
In 2006 police named Thomas McCardle, a man incarcerated for unrelated burglary charges, as a suspect in McClam's presumed murder. Another man, Michael Moorcroft, bragged about how he and McCardle had killed Kevin. All three men would have been in their teens at the time of McClam's disappearance.
Moorcroft claims he only made up the story. Cadaver dogs alerted authorities to the possible scent of human remains under a shed at Moorcroft's childhood home. However, a police-led excavation of the yard found nothing of interest.
