BETHANY, Washington County, Ore. - People came out en mass Wednesday to raise money for the search fund in the case of missing 7-year-old Kyron Horman.

Kyron’s parents, Desiree Young and Kaine Horman were both at the Godfather’s Pizza in Bethany to thank volunteers and to lend their support.

Volunteers were also at 12 Godfather’s Pizza locations in the metro area, selling wristbands and raffle tickets.

“It’s a great thing to know that everybody cares,” said Desiree. “I think any mother who has children wants to go out there and be pounding the pavement and get involved in the investigation. I think that’s natural, so of course I want to do that, but I know that I can’t: They wouldn’t let me. But what I can do is things like this and that makes me feel more active and engaged.”

She was one of the first people to sign the banner at the Godfather’s Pizza that features her son’s photo, writing, “Ky, I love you sweetie. I hope you come home to me soon. Be brave. We will be together soon. Love Momma.”

Kaine joined her at the restaurant later in the afternoon.

Also stopping by was Matt Roloff from the TLC show, “The Little People.”

“The little guy disappeared really, really close to our farm,” Roloff said. “In fact, we’ve heard he was down at the farm in the months leading up to his disappearance. I think when we heard that we were just, you know, made it feel close to us.”

In fact, Roloff said he wants to help more by offering his farm to Kaine and Desiree for another fundraising event.

Among the group of volunteers at the restaurant was 9-year-old Kelsey Wallace who was selling raffle tickets and bracelets.

“I was sad because I don’t like it when kids go missing,” she said.

Even for a 9-year-old, Wallace had no trouble comprehending the emotions of the situation.

“I think that she’s probably sad and a little bit scared because she wants him to be home again,” she said.

Twenty-five percent of all sales on Wednesday, including pizza deliveries, will go toward the search fund for Kyron Horman. The bracelets are two dollars apiece.

The fundraiser will continue until 10 p.m. Wednesday.

"lisette": Whatever Terri said, I feel certain that it was deliberately vague so as not to incriminate her later. She is very sly. She should be RDFOX instead of RDSQURL.

I agree with you on that, Lisette!

It's great to hear of all the people trying to help find Kyron - even the Roloffs! This "back to school" time of year must be especially difficult for Kyron's parents (Desiree & Kaine)... I can't imagine what they are going through!!

As for Terri... does she have any feelings about anything? I understand that not everyone shows emotion in the same way - but she hasn't demonstrated any sadness or anything about Kyron. In my mind, this just further emphasizes her guilt!

Normal Keeping the story alive

Post by Nama on Thu Sep 02, 2010 2:50 am

Mike and Penny Moreau know what the parents of Kyron Horman are going through.

The Moreaus’ 21-year-old son, Tim, disappeared in Portland in January 1990. It took police eight years to solve the case. During that time, the Moreaus worked hard to keep local reporters interested in the story, hoping the coverage would prompt someone with information about their son’s whereabouts to come forward.

“The news media – including the newspapers, TV and radio stations – was extremely helpful in keeping the story alive,” Mike Moreau says.

As it turned out, Tim had been murdered by his employer, former Starry Night nightclub owner Larry Hurwitz. Although several other people knew what happened, they kept quiet for years. But when Hurwitz was convicted of income tax evasion in 1998, the press coverage – which included mention of Moreau’s disappearance – prompted people with inside knowledge to contact the police, eventually leading to Hurwitz’s arrest and conviction for murdering Tim.

“There were people who told us they came forward with inside information because of the press coverage,” Mike Moreau says.

Today, Kaine Horman and his ex-wife Desiree Young are hoping for the same kind of break. Since their 7-year-old son disappeared from Skyline School on the morning of June 4, they have called numerous press conferences and granted lengthy media interviews to generate publicity about the case. On Friday, they held a press conference and a marathon series of interviews with local and national reporters at a Beaverton motel, shuffling between three conference rooms over several hours.

“We’re trying to stimulate coverage. We need the right person to see his picture and make the call that will solve the case,” Desiree said early in the day.

Kaine and Desiree spent much of their time accusing Kyron’s stepmother, Terri Horman, of being responsible for the boy’s disappearance. Kaine is divorcing her, in part because investigators told him she tried to hire someone to kill him before Kyron disappeared. She has moved to Roseburg and has not commented on the allegations. Investigators have not named her as a suspect in the case.

Keeping the story alive
It is not unusual for parents of missing children to ask the press to publicize the cases. The parents of Ashley Pond and Miranda Gaddis, the two Oregon City girls who disappeared in early 2002, sought the media’s help, too. The girls’ bodies later were found on the property of neighbor Ward Weaver, who was convicted of their deaths and sentenced to life in prison.

Like the Horman case, the disappearances of Pond and Gaddis generated tremendous local and national news coverage. Interest became especially intense after Weaver publicly identified himself to the Portland Tribune as the primary suspect in July 2002, three months after Gaddis vanished. The stories were fueled in part by the fact that Weaver’s father is a convicted serial killer on death row in California.

Tim Moreau disappeared on Jan. 23, 1990, after meeting with Hurwitz at Starry Night, where Moreau worked as the publicity director. Tim’s parents did not learn he was missing for almost a week, when his landlady called to say she had not seen him for several days.

Tim’s parents were also at a disadvantage because they lived in New Orleans. They were not able to travel to town and meet with the police until almost two weeks after Tim disappeared. It took them nearly two more months before they returned to Portland and began meeting with reporters to generate coverage of the case. Although they suspected Hurwitz had something to do with the disappearance, he publicly denied any involvement, and there was no evidence of foul play.

The Moreaus returned to Portland more than a dozen times during the next eight years, meeting frequently with investigators and local reporters to keep the case alive. But everyone who knew what happened stayed quiet until Hurwitz’s conviction for tax evasion in August 1998. When people with inside information finally talked to the police, they revealed that Hurwitz and another Starry Night employee killed Tim when they met at the nightclub and buried the body in the mountains near what is now Skamania Lodge.

Hurwitz finally pleaded “no contest” to killing Moreau in August 2000. As part of a plea bargain arrangement, he was sentence to 12 years in prison. The other employee, George Castognola, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Perseverance is the key
The Moreaus encourage Kaine Horman and Desiree Young to continue their efforts to generate press coverage.

“There is no doubt in our minds that without our perseverance and patience, Tim’s case would never have been solved, and we would still be living a nightmare, not knowing what happened to Tim. We hope the Horman family perseveres in their search for the truth and justice,” Mike Moreau says.

While there is no guarantee the publicity will speed the resolution of the case, the Moreaus say Horman and Young cannot lose hope.

“We are reminded of the quote from the Greek philosopher Euripides around 200 B.C., ‘The wheels of justice turn extremely slow, but they grind exceedingly fine,’ ” Mike Moreau says.

Student Safety Focus Of Skyline Meeting
School Back In Session Tuesday
POSTED: 10:49 am PDT September 3, 2010
UPDATED: 11:07 am PDT September 3, 2010
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Parents of students who attend Skyline School met Thursday night to discuss their children's safety in light of Kyron Horman's disappearance.
Students don’t return until Tuesday, but there have already been changes at the grade school.
Kyron's Wall of Hope, a collection of gifts and message for the 7-year-old, was moved from the school to a nearby fire station. Surveillance cameras were also installed inside and outside of Skyline School -- making it the first in the district with cameras.
Multnomah County Capt. Jason Gates was at the meeting and said parents are not panicked.
"The impression that I got was that these parents feel this is a safe school and that they're ready to get back," Gates said. "They should come to school and get back into the routine and feel comfortable."
Although Gates didn't provide details about new safety measures, FOX 12 has learned the school is implementing a new check-in and check-out policy. The district will also begin using a phone-based attendance program, FOX 12 has confirmed.
"There's been quite a few changes and a lot of things remain the same," Gates said.
Kaine Horman, Kyron's father, was at the school Thursday and said Skyline parents should feel confident their children are safe.
"It was a safe school before, it probably will be one of the safest schools in the state," Kaine Horman said. "Everyone has come together and they feel like they can bring their kids back to safe environment."
Kyron was last seen by his stepmother, Terri Horman, June 4 after a science fair. Deputies have not identified anyone as a suspect of person of interest in the criminal investigation.

Kaine Horman, holding out hope, gets ready for Kyron's first day of school
Published: Friday, September 03, 2010, 5:09 PM Updated: Friday, September 03, 2010, 8:34 PM
Lynne Terry, The Oregonian
Kaine Horman says he has been "operating as if he will be at school," in explaining why he has bought his missing son Kyron a backpack, bus tickets and signed him up for soccer.

His son's backpack is stuffed with school supplies. Bus passes sit next to a bus schedule. All is ready for the first day of classes on Tuesday.

Kaine Horman has no idea whether his son -- who's been missing since June 4 -- will be going to third grade this year with his classmates.

But he's full of hope.

"We're all operating as if he will be at school," Horman told The Oregonian on Friday. "As soon as he walks back in the door, we're going to take a lot of time to ourselves, but when he's ready and we're ready to come back, he'll be back in school."

Horman attended the parent-teacher conference at Skyline School on Thursday, where parents were briefed about new security measures including the high-end security cameras that were recently installed. The cameras, donated by Chown Hardware, can pan the grounds, detect people's faces and license plates and be viewed remotely by school officials through the Internet.

Besides the parent-teacher conference, Horman signed his son up for soccer, which Kyron participated in last school year.

Horman bought Kyron a new Iron Man backpack and school supplies -- which are in his son's room in his house on Northwest Sheltered Nook Road -- and this weekend plans to shop for a birthday present.

Kyron's eighth birthday is Thursday.

Parties are being organized by Desiree Young, Kyron's mom, in Medford that night. Then, next Sunday, Horman will host a birthday party for Kyron at the Family Fun Center in Wilsonville.

Kyron's stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, who was the last person to see him at Skyline School, remains at her parents' home in Roseburg. She's the focus of the investigation into Kyron's disappearance, but has not been charged or arrested.

Horman believes that Moulton Horman, who he's divorcing, helped abduct his son. Although he's confident Kyron will come home, he said that not having had the boy around for the run-up to the first day of school has been tough. But he's kept busy, working as a software engineer at Intel, caring for his 21-month-old daughter Kiara and tending to activities for his son.

The tribute to Kyron that sprung up on a cyclone fence outside Skyline School has been moved 100 yards to the Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue site. On Friday, the fence posts were prepared at the fire station and on Tuesday the tribute, aflutter with balloons, cards and stuffed animals, will be installed anew.

Besides finding the new site, Horman and Young helped with a fundraiser on Wednesday at 12 Godfather's Pizza locations in the Portland area. Bracelets and gift baskets were sold and Godfather's Pizza donated 25 percent of the day's sales, raising $14,000. On Friday, Pat Cahill, co-owner of Godfather's Pizza, gave a $8,000 check to the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office for search and rescue efforts.

The rest went to Kaine Horman for the newly created Kyron Horman Foundation, which he established to pay for other fundraisers, fliers, bracelets and whatever else is needed to raise awareness about his son.

"It's a great start," Horman said. "We still have a lot to do. He's still missing. We need to do everything we can ... to continue to get his name out there."

Sgt. Diana Olsen, head of search and rescue at the sheriff's office, said the $8,000 will be added to the Kyron Horman Fund, set up at Bank of America after the 7-year-old disappeared. Before Friday, that account held at least $14,000 in donations from around the country, said a spokesman, Sgt. Travis Gullberg. He said the Bank of America is managing the money and that nothing has been spent.

Olsen said the sheriff's office will let Horman and Young decide how the funds are used. Eventually, the money could go towards helping with other child abduction cases, Gullberg said.

Horman said that once Kyron comes home he wants to use the foundation to help other families pay for fliers and other forms of support when their children disappear as Kyron did.

"It was a struggle for us," Horman said. "There was so much that was overwhelming. I want to go out there and help them."

Yes, Lisette, so sad for this Dad.
Thanks for posting what that particular school has done to increase safety for the little ones attending. I noted the installation of cameras, good move. I noted that there is a new check-in, check-out policy. Too bad it took this crime to befall a little boy for them to realize that they needed to make these changes. The others will be safer for it, but Kyron is still missing and it won't help him.
I pray they find this little boy alive and well, but the situation after so much time has elapsed begins to look bleak.

Normal Wall of Hope fence installation, Kyron's birthday coming up

Thread #1 - Kyron Horman: Missing for 9 Months/ Desiree believes Kyron is dead/ Supporters put pressure on Terri - Page 18 100906_missing
Kyron Horman, the missing boy whose disappearance has ripped through the hearts of so many, will be turning 8 years old on Thursday and a public celebration is planned in his absence.

Kyron was last seen June 4 after he was dropped off at school and despite thousands of tips, what happened to him remains a mystery.

While the search for Kyron continues, folks do not want to let his birthday go by unnoticed. The women who run the Missing Kyron Horman Facebook page are organizing a party at the Family Fun Center & Bullwinkle's Restaurant in Wilsonville, which was one of Kyron's favorite places to go.

The event will be held Sunday, Sept. 12 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (cake and ice cream will be served at 2 p.m.). Proceeds will go to the Kyron Horman Foundation to aid in the continued search.

There will be free digital fingerprinting, free DNA kits and safety information. The Clackamas County Canine Unit will be there as well with McGruff the Crime Dog.

On Thursday, the day of Kyron's birthday, there will be a celebration at West Main Church of Christ in Medford at 7 p.m. They will be playing music that he loves. The church is at 1701 W. Main St. Call (541) 772-9640 for more information.

Wall of Hope
Fence posts were installed this weekend for the new Wall of Hope location at Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue's Skyline station, just down the street from the school where it used to stand.

Since Kyron's disappearance, a chain link fence at Skyline Elementary became a central point where the community could drop off balloons, pictures, toys and notes for Kyron. With school starting, though, the boy's family decided to have it moved.

The fence was taken to the new location a week ago but has not yet been put up. That will happen on Tuesday.

For those who wish to visit the Wall of Hope, you will need to park away from the fire station.

"We know the public will want to park on district property to view the Wall of Hope and they're welcome to visit, but please remember that the Skyline Fire Station is a working fire station and fire apparatus do depart and return frequently," said TVF&R Communications Officer Brian Barker. "Because of this we cannot allow the public to park, turn around or stage on the driveway in front of the station."

Oregon boy Kyron Horman has been missing since June 4 after attending a science fair at Skyline Elementary with his stepmother Terri Horman. Three months later, the school is set to reopen for the first day of school.

Kyron, 7, remains on the minds of students and parents as they prepare for the new school year, which begins Tuesday.

One parent, Bob Walsh, told KOIN “I just don’t understand how he could be missing at school and not be accounted for… That’s the thing I find hard to believe.”

Another parent, Thavy Kousonsavath said the investigation into the second-grader’s vanishing makes him think about time he could be spending with his own child.

“I feel bad for them… It makes you spend more time with your kids and love them even more,” said Kousonsavath.

Terri told authorities the last time she saw Kyron was as he walked to his classroom after the science fair at about 8:45 a.m. Since Kyron’s disappearance, his father has served Terri with divorce papers and a restraining order. He and the boy’s biological mother, Desiree Young, have both publicly stated they believe Terri knows what happened to their son.

KOIN reports that officials with the Portland School District are expected to hold a news conference Tuesday morning to discuss new security measures that have been put in place at the school.

I continue to wonder if info could have been drawn from Terri by slyer means...If only Kaine could have stayed with her after he found out about the MFH plot (keeping that knowledge to himself), played along with her, etc., or even telling her that he knew what she had tried to do, asking her why when he loved her so much, acting hurt and heartbroken...maybe she would have broken and given up something...The leaving and accusations have only seemed to strengthen her determination to keep silent...IDK...I probably wouldn't have wanted to stay around someone that had wanted me killed either...Who knows? She might have decided to follow through...AND he had to take Kiara's safety into consideration, as well. I don't know, but it seems that they needed to keep someone on the "inside" to keep up with her actions and words. BTW, I was reading on another blog that there was speculation that Michael Cook may have actually been working with Kaine to try to find out something about Terri, playing along with her sexting, etc...One reason that is considered is because MC is still one of Kaine's Facebook friends...IDK, just some speculation...

I think now, this is going to be a "cold case" but
one in which the police will step back and keep an eye on her and what she does from now on. They cant charge her, they dont have enough, but in many cases
similar to this one (Drew Peterson's case comes to mind)after a certain amount of time, certain facts start to emerge. I dont believe she acted alone maybe there is a weak link out there somewhere. We can only hope.

Normal School Saves a Desk for Missing Kyron Horman

Post by Nama on Tue Sep 07, 2010 6:22 pm

Like many parents this time of year, Kaine Horman went shopping for school supplies, buying everything needed for his son Kyron to start the third grade.

"They're all in his backpack in his room, ready to go. He's on the teachers' roster. They have his desk waiting. Everything is ready for him," says Horman, 36.

But Kyron, who turns 8 on Thursday, wasn't there for the first day of school Tuesday. The boy with the big glasses and toothy smile vanished June 4 from his Portland-area school. His stepmother Terri Moulton Horman has become the focus of the investigation but she has never been named a suspect.

As students return to school from summer vacation, a desk will be waiting for Kyron, says Matt Shelby, spokesman for the Portland School District.

"He's enrolled as a student. There's a spot there waiting for him," says Shelby, who adds that school policy states that a child is withdrawn from school after missing 10 consecutive days. "The school is ready for Kyron and we all hope he shows up."

Artgal, I completely agree with you. If they were going to bring Terri in, they would have already done so IMHO.

Also, Lisette..you made a great point about placating her. But, as you said..if Kaine's life was in danger, he had to get the heck out and take the baby.

Interesting about Cook and Kaine's connection. :scratch:

I'd like to hang on to the same kind of hope that Kyron is still alive, but unfortunately I don't think he is.

I can't imagine that someone Terry knows could conceal a living boy undetected this long.
And then I review some of the stories we've covered... boy found locked away starving in attic, boy being kept behind walls at grandma's house. My mind always goes to Jaycee Dugard and her daughters.

Did Terry sell him? Is that how she has the money to pay her high priced attorney?

I feel so sad for Kyron's family who are sure to buy him Halloween Costumes, set his place at their Thanksgiving tables, write his name on gifts under the Christmas Tree, celebrate Birthdays without him.
All the more heart wrenching... Terry knows where he is at.
Just like Elizabeth Johnson knows what happened to baby Gabriel!

Skyline School Begins Without Kyron Horman
POSTED: 11:07 am PDT September 7, 2010
UPDATED: 8:09 pm PDT September 7, 2010
PORTLAND, Ore. -- The first day of classes started at Skyline School in northwest Portland on Tuesday without missing 7-year-old boy Kyron Horman.
Ben Keefer, the school's principal, said Kyron is enrolled at the school, but he will be removed from the enrollment list if he is absent for 10 days, per school district procedure.
Kyron vanished from Skyline School on June 4. His whereabouts remain a mystery three months later and Multnomah County deputies are conducting an active criminal investigation.
No suspects or persons of interest have been named, but Kyron's birth parents have said his stepmother, Terri Horman, is involved in the third-grader's disappearance.
Deputies said Terri Horman attended an early-morning science fair at the school with her stepson on the day he disappeared.
Kaine Horman, Kyron's father, said he bought his missing son school supplies in hopes he would be found in time to start third grade.
"It's a tough day, not doing the normal routine like we would be for school -- putting him on the bus. So, tough day," Kaine Horman said.
Despite having gone nearly 100 days without seeing his son, Kaine Horman said he remains hopeful the child will return.
"It's the hope. It's the hope that he's coming home soon. It's the connection with everyone who supports him. Its' a lot of things," he said.
Despite media coverage of the first day of school, Keefer said teachers were trying to uphold a business-as-usual attitude at the school Tuesday.
"The vibe today at school is very much first day," Keefer said. "There's definitely some melancholy feelings from folks, but on a whole, what you see from our students is that typical first-day butterflies, excitement and smiles on their faces as they go about their business."
Portland Public Schools spokesman Matt Shelby said there have been district-wide security changes in the wake of Kyron's disappearance.
Attendance will be taken twice a day -- once in the morning and once after lunch -- at kindergarten through fifth-grade schools. Attendance is already taken throughout the day at middle schools and high schools.
There is also a standardized badging system being applied to all Portland schools.

In addition to those changes, security cameras were added to Skyline School thanks to a donation.
"It was a safe school on June 4 and it's an even safer place now," Keefer said.
Birthday Plans For Kyron
Kyron's birthday is Thursday, and plans are under way to celebrate.
One event will take place in Medford, where Kyron's biological mother lives, at 7 p.m. Thursday at West Main Church. People are invited to bring a red balloon for a balloon release.
Another is set for Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the Wilsonville Family Fun Center and Bullwinkle's Restaurant. A portion of each $15 wristband sold will help fund the search for the missing boy.

Kyron Horman's family keeps up tradition of two birthday parties as the missing boy turns 8
Published: Wednesday, September 08, 2010, 7:32 PM Updated: Wednesday, September 08, 2010, 8:16 PM
Lynne Terry, The Oregonian
This year, as always, his blended family will host two birthday parties, one in Medford and another in the Portland area. They'll dish out chocolate cake, play his favorite tunes, read heartfelt cards and release bunches of red balloons to celebrate his favorite color. There may even be a few gifts.

But the birthday boy himself won't be there.

Kyron Horman, who was born eight years ago Thursday, has missed several milestones since he disappeared more than three months ago: Father's Day in June, the first day of school this week and now his birthday parties.

His parents will host them anyway.

"Regardless of where he is, I'm going to celebrate the fact that we brought him into this world," Kyron's father, Kaine Horman, told The Oregonian. "It will be hard him not being there, but we're going to do something that he loves to do."

That includes listening to "Abracadabra" by the Steve Miller Band, "Say" by John Mayer and "Fireflies" by Owl City -- three songs that will be played at his party in Medford, hosted by his mother, Desiree Young, at the West Main Church of Christ. That also includes putting around a mini-golf course at the Family Fun Center & Bullwinkle's Restaurant in Wilsonville, where a second party and fundraiser will take place Sunday.

At both, the focus will be the boy with a goofy grin who has captured hearts across the country since he disappeared from Skyline School in Portland on June 4. Investigators have focused on his stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, who is living with her parents in Roseburg.

She has said nothing publicly about his disappearance. Her 16-year-old son, James, who first met Kyron as a baby, described his stepbrother as highly intelligent with a knack for math. Kyron was also timid but gained confidence with each landmark in his life.

The first big one came before his 2nd birthday when he got glasses.

"That was huge," said Kaine Horman. "He would fall down a lot when he was younger learning how to walk. And I don't think any of us correlated that with the fact that he couldn't see very well."

Once he put glasses on, Kyron's fuzzy world snapped into focus. "He got that grin on his face and started walking around looking at everything," Horman said.

His fears eased as well, Young said: "He didn't have separation anxiety as much after that."

Kyron was born about three weeks after his mother filed for divorce. As a baby, he attended day care and spent time with both parents, though Young maintained primary custody. That changed in 2004, when she sought medical treatment in Canada, giving Horman physical custody of Kyron.

When Young returned late that year strapped with medical bills, she moved to Medford to regroup with her family. Kyron stayed with his dad in the Portland area but visited his mom in Medford, where he has a Batman-themed room with toy collector cars and a yellow Labrador named Ernie.

"They're inseparable," Young said. "Ernie follows him everywhere."

In Medford, Kyron enjoys playing with his 7-year-old cousin Mayson, looking for bugs in the backyard, casting his fishing pole and going to family barbecues and on camping and boating trips.

Kyron also loves the Oregon Zoo, playing video games and going bowling with his dad, who took him to Seaside for one birthday. The highlight of the four-day trip, Horman said, was a hot rod show.

Horman, a software engineer at Intel, has always taken the day off for his son's birthday. This year, with Kyron missing, he can't sleep, feels scattered and is emotionally and mentally exhausted.

Tears fall daily -- for both parents. But they're determined to focus on the boy with infectious enthusiasm who performs silly stunts and makes them proud.

"He's not like other children," Young said. "He enjoys hard work. He likes to pull weeds. He likes to vacuum. He likes to clean the house."

Kyron leaps at opportunities to share work with his dad, too.

"He learned to do his own laundry," Horman said. "I don't know how many kids do their own laundry at 6. ... He also cleans his own dishes. He has enthusiasm even towards fundamental things. I'm always proud of him for that."

Before his 5th birthday, Kyron entered Skyline School with approval from his parents, his pediatrician and a psychologist.

He showed an interest in science and a talent for art, which he applied to projects on airplanes, bridges and the red-eyed tree frog display in the science fair the day he disappeared. His parents cherish his artwork, including a self-portrait that hangs in his blue bedroom full of toys in Northwest Portland.

"It's amazing for someone his age," Horman said.

At school, Kyron became more outgoing and adventurous. Once fearful of the water, he took swimming lessons, ventured down slides and swam underwater. He also played soccer, developing skills in teamwork.

"He grew a lot from the beginning of the season to the end," Young said.

But perhaps his biggest advance was in reading.

"It was very hard for him," Horman said. "He would like it if you read him a book, but him reading a book -- not so much."

Kyron went from testing below grade level to being slightly above.

"Now he reads me books," Horman said. "He's enthusiastic about it."

About a year ago, Kyron announced he wanted to be a police detective, investigating crimes like his stepdad, Tony Young, who works for Medford police.

The day Kyron disappeared, he was wearing a "CSI" T-shirt, though Desiree Young never let him watch such a graphic show.

She said organizing his birthday party has been tough. "It was an extremely difficult decision to make," she said. "But the way I look at it is ... if Kyron were to see it, I want him to know that he's loved. I want him to feel that we care. And that we're going to find him. I'm hoping we have a good turnout to show Kyron that everyone's caring for him."

He sounds like such a smart & good-natured boy... a lot like my own son! If I lived in the area, I for sure would attend one of his birthday celebrations with my son. My heart goes out to his parents, family & friends... and I continue to pray that Kyron will be found alive & well!

Kyron Horman Update: One Tipster’s Startling Suspicions, and Frustration (Updated with Comment from MCSO)
10:39 AM August 3rd, 2010 by James Pitkin

Investigators in the case of missing 7-year-old Kyron Horman say they’ve sorted through more than 3,500 tips in the nearly two-month investigation.

Here’s an example of one such tip, forwarded today to WW by former Sheriff’s Capt. Bruce McCain. McCain says he’s brought the tip to investigators’ attention and is told they are finally following up on it. Here’s the main portion of an email McCain sent:

This morning around 9:00 am I received a telephone call from Mark DeWitt, a 51-year old single farmer who lives in Riddle, Oregon. … When I took his call he expressed relief in “finally talking to a human” after leaving unanswered calls to the MCSO tip line. I told him I no longer worked at MCSO and I am not part of the investigation at all. He understood that but asked me to pass this info along to the authorities.

DeWitt told me he was driving on 99W near Junction City around noon on Wednesday, June 9–the same day Captain Mike Shults delivered his press statement without the families present. DeWitt said a white pick-up truck driven by a female with brown or reddish hair came up fast behind him. He noticed in his rear view mirror that a boy with short dark hair and glasses kept popping his head up in the front seat, only to have the driver push his head down. The pick-up passed DeWitt and turned on a gravel road near an old mill site in or near the town of Monroe, Oregon. DeWitt said the pickup turned onto a side road where it stopped to meet a “cranberry” color sedan from which a heavy set red head female and a male wearing a baseball cap emerged. DeWitt said the pickup driver got out and took the boy into a heavily wooded area where they were followed by the other two–with the male carrying a shovel he removed from the sedan trunk.
DeWitt continued into town where he stopped at a gas station to ask for directions to his destination, which I think was a grain elevator for seed. While out of his vehicle, DeWitt said he heard what sounded like a single gun shot coming from the general vicinity of where he saw the three adults and boy. DeWitt then said he later pulled into a rest area on 99W to use the rest room. As he was heading back onto the road, he was behind a slow moving motor home that was pulling onto the highway. DeWitt said he then saw the pickup again speeding with the sedan behind it about to collide with the motor home. He said the truck slammed on its brakes and barely stopped short of colliding with the motor home, but the sedan skidded and collided with the rear of the white pickup. DeWitt said it was not a major crash, but the sedan might have some slight front end damage and the pickup might show signs of a “paint swap” in the rear.
DeWitt said he does not watch much television and did not put all of these pieces together until he started following the Kyron story on the news. He said he has called the tip line three times, but with no answer. He also said he reported the incident to a “Eugene Deputy” (not sure if Eugene PD or Lane County Sheriff) shortly thereafter, but before he realized the possible significance of what he saw. I asked him what he wanted me to do with this information and he just wants a “real person” to go check the area – which he says he has since revisited. I told him that’s not a good idea since it might be a crime scene.
I had to leave for another appointment but I called him back around 12:45 while on the road. I asked him if he knew I was an attorney and he said No, he only saw me described as a retired MCSO Captain. I wanted to verify he was not seeking legal advice or representation and we agreed there never was any lawyer-client relationship established. I told him I would pass his story on to someone I knew “high up” in the investigation. But I also told him that one reason why he might not have received a call back is that investigators knew where Terri and the pickup were around 12 noon on Wednesday, June 9.


UPDATE: Lt. Mary Lindstrand, spokeswoman for the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, says a detective from an outside agency followed up on the tip “some time ago” and determined it wasn’t relevant to the investigation.

I'm not sure if this already has been posted. I think it sounds very interesting, and I wonder why LE determined it wasn't "relevant" to the investigation? Hopefully they at least checked those woods thoroughly!!

Rainbow, Awesome post!!!

A lot of times, LE will make a statement like that to the media while they are still very much investigating it. This may or may NOT be the case...but it sure sounds plausible. My question would be: did the tipster take a poly or was one even offered to him?? :scratch:

Kaine tells KGW: "We need to get this wrapped up."
by Colin Miner, KGW Staff

Posted on September 10, 2010 at 8:35 PM
Kaine Horman has dropped his motion to find his wife Terri Moulton Horman in contempt of court because she shared the contents of a sealed restraining order.

While Kaine was not required to explain why he was dropping the motion, one legal expert familiar with the case said it would allow Kaine to try and speed up divorce proceedings.

A hearing on the contempt motion had been scheduled for September 21. That will now be canceled and Kaine could seek to move up a divorce hearing currently scheduled for October 7.

Kaine told KGW that dropping the motion also serves other purposes.

"It's an act of good faith on our part," Kaine told KGW. "It shows that we're serious about not wasting the court's time with side issues. We want to get the divorce wrapped up so we can deal the important things and move forward."

Kaine filed for divorce on June 28 - two days after law enforcement officials told him that Terri had hired a landscaper in a plot to have Kaine killed.
Terri, who has not been charged with any crime or even labeled a suspect or person of interest, has been the focus of the investigation into her step-son's disappearance.

Terri's divorce lawyer, Peter Bunch, filed papers earlier this summer saying that Terri agreed to a divroce but wanted to put talks concerning child custody, property and finances.

Kaine and his lawyer oppose any delay.

"We need to get this wrapped up," he said. "There are bigger issues that need to be dealt with."
On Thursday, Kyron's birthday, his mother Desiree held a celebration at a church in her hometown of Medford. Another celebration, this one in Wilsonville, will be held on Sunday.

Kyron's cake uncut: 'When he comes home he can have his cake'

Submitted by Susan Harding, KATU Reporter and Anchor
Sunday, September 12th, 6:06 pm

WILSONVILLE, Ore. - Hundreds of people turn out for a birthday party honoring missing 8-year-old Kyron Horman Sunday.

The event is being held until 9 p.m. at the Family Fun Center and Bullwinkle's Restaurant in Wilsonville. At the party and search-fund fundraiser, Kyron's parents talked about why - even though it is painful for them - they needed to hold this celebration.

That's because Kaine Horman and Desirée Young both say this is Kyron's day. That means this party is all about him, and not about how they're feeling.

And this, they said, is what he'd like for his birthday: a day at Bullwinkle's and a red-tree-frog cake.

So they're giving that day to him - even though the young guest of honor is still missing.

The red-eyed tree frog gracing Kyron's chocolate birthday cake will stay uncut. They passed out other tree-frog-ornamented goodies, but decided not to cut the cake at Sunday's event.

"We're going to freeze it and keep it for him," said Kyron's mother Desirée Young, "so when he comes home he can have his cake."

Kaine and Desirée hope somewhere their son is watching this story - seeing his favorite games and the balloons in his favorite color and hearing the birthday wishes.

"We're hoping he sees this and knows where we are," said his father Kaine Horman. "And hopefully he can't wait to come back to doing this with us."

"We're not going to sit by and pretend [the pain] is not here," said Desirée. "Yes, it's painful, but I think it's important for him to see that we still love him and still want him home and we still want to do everything for him."

Now, said Desirée, Kyron also "has a chocolate cake to come home to."

It has been a birthday filled with thanks to all of the guests and hugs for the party's organizers, the co-founders of the "Missing Kyron Horman" group on Facebook.

But on this day of celebration it's also a day of pain, with raw emotions - and words for the person who Desirée believes knows where Kyron is.

"That they can't let him come home, it just makes me sick," said Desirée amidst tears. "That there's somebody that horrible in this world that he's missing his birthday because they are so selfish that they can't let him come home. That makes me very angry."

Updated today at 3:51 PM
PORTLAND, Ore. -- Parents of missing Portland boy Kyron Horman will appeal to viewers of the Oprah Winfrey show Thursday, more than 13 weeks into his disappearance.
Kaine and Desiree Horman were set to appear on the Chicago set during the first week of Oprah's lasts season to tell their story.
"Kyron Horman vanished from his school science fair in June. We'll get the latest from his parents," the show preview said Monday.
Kyron disappeared from Skyline Elementary in NW Portland on June 4, sparking the largest search in Oregon's history. No suspects have been named the case.
Last Thursday marked the boy's eighth birthday. A fundraiser was held for him over the weekend in Wilsonville.

Young and Kaine Horman each have fond memories of visiting the Family Fun Center with their son.
"The worst part of the situation is he's not here," Kaine Horman said. "The next to worst part is coming to terms with the fact that the world is continuing to move on."
The boy's birth parents said holding events like the celebration fundraiser is important because it keeps Kyron's face in front of the public.
"The first couple of days, all we could do is stare at the floor in disbelief. (We) couldn't even look up," Kaine Horman said. "But we can't do that now. We can't afford to do that."
While Young and Horman recognize the importance of pushing forward, they said it has also been emotionally draining. They hope Kyron will somehow see the celebration, complete with red birthday balloons and a special chocolate cake that they plan to freeze until he returns home.

Because it has everything, innocent child missing from school, bodybuilder stepmother, murder plot......that means big ratings. Unfortunately, a simple case of a missing child is not important enough. 🇳🇴

Agree with you. The same thing goes for missing adults, some are never even mentioned in the national media, others are given one hour of time on Nancy Grace.

Have never understood how the media picks which cases to feature, how they decide which cases will keep the nation's attention. Maybe the parents hire a pr team that bombards the news channels with pics and info on the abduction. Wish I knew This case has grabbed the nation without a doubt.

We have seen it with CA and other loved ones in missing children's cases. They cannot bear to come out of denial long enough to face some ugly possibilities that their child may not be returned to them. We cannot blame them. I believe it is a mental defense, protecting one's mind, as shock does. Otherwise people would go crazy with worry and sorrow and angst. They cling to hope and that is good for them until they have to acknowledge the situation should it turn out to be worse than what they are hoping for. When he was quoted as saying it was a safe school, I knew he was in denial. Any parent whose child disappears from the school building without a trace would be questioning if that school was safe because this happened to his child in that building.

You're right. Especially about the safety procedures of the school.
I just get a cold feeling from him. It is probably just me. Everyone reacts differently in these terrible situations.

charminglane it is because there are no innocent people involved. The media grab the stories with the most drama involved. It is a sorted story of betrayal among many other things. There are a lot of blended families out there. People can relate to something like this happening to their child. Someone that we trusted to take care of our child. Our worst nightmare.

Yes, he appears to be cold and that has also been my impression from media releases. And as LM writes, there are no innocent people here, it was let slip one night on NG that the way he hooked up with Terri while still married to Desiree, was that she was the babysitter and he was having an affair with her, thus breaking his matrimonial vows. Desiree had a history of some substance abuse I think I recall and couldn't care for the child----someone correct me if I am wrong about this, just from memory here. Everyone involved is a little bit tainted it seems, poor Kyron........

TR, I don't think that Terri was a babysitter for Kaine before Kyron was born. He did start an affair with her, though, while Desiree was pregnant. I had never heard that about substance abuse either...Just that she had medical problems (kidney?) that she went to Canada to get treatment for.

I also think Kaine is a very cold or distant person. When he was sitting with Desiree at the party Sunday, and she was speaking and crying, he looked at her with no emotion at all and said, 'are you alright?' He acted like he couldn't understand why she was crying.

What I can't understand is, if they are so convinced Kyron is coming home, then why didn't they wait till he was home and have his birthday parties. Having the parties now is something you would do to pay tribute to him or in honor of him. If I thought my kid was coming home, I would definitely wait and have the parties with them there. JMO

I agree with your thoughts, that is the way I would do it. I would have all the party stuff bought, cake frozen, and await his coming home to throw the party. Kaine may not be cold, just a stoic type of person as many men are, just doesn't show emotion very much. The party seems to be like a publicity sort of thing to me, IDK, but maybe it is their way of keeping the name out there in the news so the case won't go cold. I just don't know.

Kaine seems to be someone that keeps things inside instead of letting his emotions out...His change in appearance shows that he has been greatly affected by this tragedy...He has lost weight and looks very stressed.
