PORTLAND, Ore. — On Thursday, Oregon State Police marked 10 years since Kyron Horman, a 7-year-old boy with ties to the Medford area, disappeared from Skyline Elementary School in northwest Portland.

Kyron was in second grade at Skyline and had attended the school's science fair on the day of his disappearance — June 4, 2010.

"The Oregon State Police has a well-defined commitment: based on our partnerships with law enforcement throughout our 36 counties, our mission is to search for and find Oregonians that go missing," the agency said. "Some of those missing are the most vulnerable of all; our children. These young people and adults have unique narratives that define their situations and individual stories detailing their disappearances; but they are all common in that we search for them every day; they are never forgotten."

Kyron's mother Desiree Young, who lives in the Medford area, has never given up on the investigation into her son's disappearance. In 2019 she announced that she would be releasing a book about the search for Kyron with the help of bestselling author Rebecca Morris.

Young said at the time that the search for evidence of Kyron's location had been narrowed to an area of "less than 100 acres." However, there have been no major breakthroughs in the case announced since then.

According to Young's account, witnesses saw Kyron leaving the school with his step-mother, Terri Horman, that morning. Young has maintained that Terri holds the key to finding out what hapened to Kyron.

Kyron's case has remained open ever since he went missing, with law enforcement periodically putting out the call for tips that might lead to more evidence.

"HOPE is why we are here," Oregon State Police said.
