MEDFORD, Ore. – Today is National Missing Children’s Day. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, more than 50 children are missing in Oregon and that number represents only the children that have been reported.

Desiree Young’s son, Kyron Horman, disappeared on June 4, 2010 from his school science fair.

“He was seen in in throughout the school along with Terry (Kyron’s step-mom) and Kiara (Kyron’s step-sister) and a lot of eyewitnesses place him in the key classrooms, looking at the exhibits. Then we know that at approximately 8:44 in the morning he was posing in front of that picture that we all know, in front of his exhibit. We know that Terry was in the school when she took that picture, then from that point we have eyewitness accounts that place him leaving the school with Terry right out the side exit,” said Young.

According to Young, that was the last time anyone saw him, “We just don’t know what she (Terry) did with him from that point until the time that she’s captured on surveillance footage at the gym,” said Young.

Then Young received a call from the school and she knew something was wrong, saying, “I actually the whole day did not feel like there was anything wrong. I had actually gotten several emails from Terry throughout the day checking in about the science fair she had posted photos things of that nature, following up on other discussions that we had had. It was strange to get that many emails from her in the day but I really didn’t connect that is odd until after I got the phone call from the school saying that he was missing.”

More than 300 people helped search for Kyron in the days and months that followed his disappearance, “ I thought in the very beginning we would get the call that night and he’d be home with us and then as time went on I thought for sure it’s going to be this year for sure every year every day I have to say a prayer just to get up in the morning please Lord let today be the day it’s extremely frustrating to be here eight years later,” said Young.

Young and her family continue to work with investigators to develop new leads and information surrounding Kyron’s disappearance, “We got a new team on board we have new resources. Over the last, I would say year, year and a half, we’ve dedicated a lot of time to Kyron‘s case. We’ve done a lot of new searches and investigated some new evidence. I feel really like this team is going to be the one to get us answers,” said Young.
