More than 150 searchers have showed up to try and find any sign of the missing 8 year old boy that vanished four months ago when he was only 7 years old. Kyron Horman was last seen with his stepmother, Terri Horman, on June 4, 2010 at a science fair at his school in Oregon. He did not arrive home on the school bus that afternoon and was never seen in class the day of his disappearance.
Now in a bittersweet turn of events, searchers have arrived once again at Sauvie Island near Portland, Oregon to look for the boy or any evidence in the case. Everyone is keeping their hopes up that he is still alive and that signs of an abduction or kidnapping will be found that lead investigators to the boy.
Sauvie Island is a good place to look for clues because his stepmother was allegedly seen there the day he went missing. If she was involved, she would only have time to drive him within 15 minutes of the school which is where Sauvie Island is located.
So far, there is no solid evidence against Terri Horman and investigators say that she is not a suspect, but she has been under scrutiny since the beginning because of her cavalier behavior of “hitting the gym” immediately after Kyron went missing and her attempt to hire a hit man to kill her husband. She also failed a lie detector test and walked out of a second one according to family and friends. Terri has since been under scrutiny for a alleged affair with her husband’s friend that was trying to help find Kyron and asking her friends to buy untraceable cell phones for her.
Both, Kaine Horman, Kyron’s father and Desiree Young, Kyron’s mother, have stated that they believe Terri Horman is involved with Kyron’s disappearance. Investigators remain tight lipped on the matter.
The most frustrating aspect of this entire case is the fact that Terri Horman will not help to find Kyron and instead is doing everything she can to protect herself and cover her tracks. It is believed that Terri paid an attorney $350,000 to represent her. People are wondering why she did not put that money towards a reward for Kyron’s return.
Kyron’s family is asking for donations to increase the reward money. They are also holding a fundraiser selling plants, trees and shrubs, with 50% of the proceeds going to help increase the reward amount. Money can be donated to the Kyron Horman Foundation.
