CLINTON, Mo. -- Several residents in Clinton, Missouri have found some disturbing items in their driveways. A flyer that looks like a missing child poster, but it's really information on the Ku Klux Klan.

The flyer claims the information is from the Traditionalist American Knights of the KKK.

When asked about the flyers, most residents said they hadn't seen them and hoped not too.

"I was a little shocked because I've never heard of that being here in Clinton," Kathy Himes said.

Himes and her husband Don were out for a walk on the town square Thursday night. They were taking part in a treasure hunt for Clinton's Olde Glory Days celebration. Don Himes was pretty clear in his opinion.

"I just assume they would go somewhere else or cease altogether."

Clinton police are aware of the situation but say there's not much they can do, with one exception. The way the flyers are being distributed is considered littering. They are hopeful someone has seen the person or people toss out the flyers. They're hopeful anyone with information will contact them.

Efforts to reach a representative with the Klan were unsuccessful.
