Eight to ten members of the taskforce who are working on the Kyron Horman case will continue to do so, while others will be placed back “into the streets” of Multnomah County, Oregon.
Kyle Horman has been missing since June 4 from his school and was last seen by his stepmother, Terri Horman, who said she dropped him off at school that morning.
According to Multnomah County Sheriff Dan Staton, “We have taken critical hits in all of the units throughout the agency to support this investigation.” In fact, Staton said his department has spent over $1 million on efforts to find the boy to this point.
The situation is at the point that Staton believes if they do not go to a taskforce model, services that are provided to the community would be adversely affected.

Staton did not release any details but stated that the case was advancing “in a very successful fashion” which is why he can put deputies back to their regular jobs and duties.
The Sheriff also noted that there were parts of the investigation that will surprise the public when it is finally resolved. “We have knowledge of things we wish we didn’t,” Staton told reporters.
Kyron’s stepmother, Terri, has been scrutinized and followed closely the past several months and her now ex-husband, Kaine Horman, who is Kyron’s father, believes that she is somehow “involved” in his son’s disappearance.
At this point, however, no arrests have been made.
Kyron Horman just turned 8-years-old last Thursday and both his mother, Desiree Young and father each held the child a birthday party celebration.
