Search resumes for Kyron Horman

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that there has been a renewed search for Kyron Horman, a 7-year-old-boy who went missing in 2010.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (http://bit.ly/2cr6eIq) that investigators this weekend searched off U.S. 30 for Kyron Horman, who was last seen in June 2010 after his stepmother, Terri Horman, dropped him off at his Portland school.

Capt. Steve Alexander said he couldn't comment on the reason for the search or what the investigators were looking for, but confirmed the search was connected to Kyron and that the case is still active and ongoing.

The case has had a recent renewal of publicity as Terri Horman appeared Wednesday on "Dr. Phil."

Terri Horman drove Kyron to school that day and told authorities she last saw him walking down the hall toward his classroom at about 8:45 a.m.

Investigators interviewed about 300 students along with parents, faculty and staff, and determined that Kyron was not seen at the school after 8:45 a.m. The school didn't report his absence, and authorities weren't notified until he didn't show up on the afternoon school bus. An extensive, weeks-long search turned up nothing.

Kyron's mother, Desiree Young, lives in Medford.
