Desiree Young, the mother of Kyron Horman, is hoping that the reward for information leading to his return is increased to $350,000. That is the same amount that Terri Horman’s defense attorney has been paid to defend her according to CBS News.
The seven year old, Kyron Horman, went missing from is Portland, Oregon Elementary School on June 4, 2010, according to his stepmother, Terri Horman. Kyron turned eight last month amongst rumors that his stepmother is some how involved in his disappearance. She has never been charged in the case although she is being investigated by the police.
Desiree Young is hoping that money will influence someone in Terri’s circle to come forward with information that leads to Kyron’s discovery. Unfortunately, the only person that may know where Kyron Horman is, most likely is Terri Horman and she is not talking no matter how much money is offered.
So far, Terri Horman has been willing to give up both of her biological children, James Moulton, 16 and Kiara Horman, 1, due to court orders and to avoid media scrutiny.
At the same time, Kaine Horman, announced a fundraiser set for October 9th and 10th at the Sleep Ridge Farms in Mulino, Oregon. The tree, plant and shrub sale will raise money for the Kyron Horman Foundation set up by Kyron’s father, Kaine Horman. Fifty percent of all proceeds will go to the foundation. Hopefully, $300,000 will be raised. The current reward for Kyron’s return is $50,000.
Police have been tight lipped about the investigation, so it is difficult to tell the difference between fact and fiction. We do know that Terri Horman was the last person to see Kyron alive. She was the one to report him missing. Her older son was sent to live with his father and she is bitter about it. She lost full custody of her 1 year old daughter, Kiara, and she is not even fighting it. She has time periods on the day Kyron went missing that are unaccounted for. Her behavior since the disappearance has been odd, she even Facebooked “hitting the gym” and then actually went to the gym just days after her stepson went missing. She told friends and family members that she had failed one lie detector test and that she had walked out of another one.
Both Kaine Horman and Desiree Young, Kyron’s biological parents, believe that Terri is involved in his disappearance. They are hoping that more money will motivated someone to come forward with information about Kyron’s whereabouts.
