July 11, 2016 – Six years later and Kyron Horman is still missing.
6/5/2010 – Kyron Horman, 7, has been missing since Friday morning and the FBI are asking for help.
Kyron, who attends Skyline Elementary School in Portland, Oregon, was last seen Friday morning by his step-mom who took him to the Science fair (see photo), then sent him on his way to class, around 8:45 a.m., but his teacher says he never checked in and the rest of the staff said they did not see him after 8:45 a.m.
Instead of Kyron taking the bus to school, which he usually does, his stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, drove him there, so she could see his Red-Eyed Tree Frog Science Project displayed at school.
“He was so excited about his science project,” said Carol Moulton, Horman’s mother and Kyron’s grandmother. “They had worked on it together. He was anxious to take it to school and show it off.”
After she took Kyron’s picture, she watched him walk down the hallway towards his classroom at 8:45 and then left.
The school day didn’t start till 10:00 a.m. that day because of the science fair. When Kyron didn’t show up in class the teacher marked him absent.
At 3:30 p.m., Terri was waiting for Kyron at the bus stop. When Kyron did not get off the bus she asked the driver where he was and the bus driver said he had not gotten on the bus that day. In a panic, Terri runs home to call the school, who told her Kyron had been marked absent that day.
Portland Public schools sent out an automated phone call to all Skyline parents alerting them that Kyron was missing and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office was on the case by 4:00 p.m. The Portland Police Bureau have been at the school since early evening on Friday searching for him non stop. The FBI CARD (Child Abduction Rapid Deployment) Team have been searching for him, as well as a helicopter and dog search.
Parents of Skyline Elementary School were asked to come to school on Sunday for interviews.
Kyron is three feet, eight inches tall and weighs about 50 pounds. He was wearing his black CSI T-shirt and orange and black cargo pants, white socks, and worn black Skecher tennis shoes with orange trim.

Kyron Horman, 7, is the boy that disappeared from his Portland school about 3 weeks ago and has not been seen since.
The reason for the 911 call has not been released, but the police have said that it has become part of their investigation.
On Monday, Kaine filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences and was granted a restraining order from his wife, Terri Horman. The Judge also ruled that Terri is prohibited from possessing any guns. The judge has sealed the document because of concerns that releasing the entire document could jeopardize the investigation. Kaine asked for sole custody of their 1 1/2 year old daughter.
A records search of Terri Horman by ABC, turned up a DUI conviction in 2005 and nine traffic infractions from 1988 to 2004 for speeding and one for expired license.
Brad Garrett, Special Agent for the FBI spoke to “Good Morning America” and said, “There is something under the surface that we don’t know about. There has to be some pattern of abuse here. It’s not something that all of a sudden happened and he decide to go to court. It is possible that he (Kain) knows something that we don’t know.”

A former landscaper has come forward and said that the stepmother of the missing Portland Oregon boy, Kyron Horman, offered him a large sum of money to kill her husband, Kaine Horman.
Soon after Kyron’s disappearance on June 4, as part of the investigation the police interviewed the landscaper. It has been revealed by The Oregonian that the landscaper, whose name is being withheld by authorities, told the Oregonian last week, that after he was hired to do lawn work at the Horman’s home, Terri Mouton Horman approached him about a killing her husband, 6-7 months before Kyron vanished.
When Kaine Horman was told by detectives what the landscaper alleged, Kaine filed for a restraining order and divorce and left the home with their youngest daughter. It has also been disclosed that the 911 calls, that were made from the home on June 26th, were from Terri. One was about her husband and daughter not being home and the other was over a custody matter. Kaine was not at home with these calls were made.
The Detectives also told Kyron’s mother and stepdad, Desiree and Tony Young about the alleged murder-for-hire scheme, explaining the sudden distancing from Terri Horman.
The Oregonian also reported that sources said that there were indications of deception during Terri’s first polygraph test and gaps in the time line of the day Kryon disappearance.
Detectives have confronted Terri about the landscapers claims and she has denied them.
“There will be no comment from the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office regarding the information reported in the July 4, 2010 Oregonian. The information released in the Oregonian article did not come from the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office. This is an ongoing investigation,” Lt. Mary Lindstrand, a sheriff’s spokeswoman said in a statement.

Staton said a task force will be developed to further the investigation in the Horman case.
“We can target specific elements to bring a conclusion to this,” said Staton.
Staton admitted the broad tips have caused him frustration in the case. He said each and every lead has to be looked at and documented, but some are too broad when the tip is no more than to search in a wooded area.
Staton would not give specifics as to what moving forward in the investigation meant.
“I don’t like standing up here and telling you that we are moving forward in this investigation but not being able to tell you why. I would love to be able to tell you this is what we have found. I wish I could tell you this,” said Staton.
The investigation so far has cost the sheriff’s office $1.42 million. Investigators have subpoenaed cell phone and computer records and have hired technical experts to help with the investigation. Creating a task force will help distribute the cost of the case across the board, said Staton, and it is more fiscally responsible.
“We’ve collected those items, and now it’s going to take time to get through all of it,” said Staton.
More FBI agents have been brought in to help the Sheriff Dept. go through the case using their expertise in profiling.
“They sit down with investigators and go through the case files page by page, and try to help brainstorm ideas. They may say, you want to try this or have you looked at this,” said Beth Anne Steele, FBI spokeswoman.
Last Saturday, Kyron Horman’s mother, Desiree Young, stated that she will put pressure on Terri Moulton Horman, Kyron’s stepmother, because she believes that she is responsible for Kryon’s disappearance.
“We put out new signs and fliers to put a little more pressure on Terri,” said Young.
The fliers were put up in Roseburg where Terri Horman is living with her parents.

Desiree Young, Kyron’s mother, filed the $10 million civil lawsuit on Friday against Terri Moulton Horman.
June 4 marks the two-year anniversary of Kyron’s disappearance. The statue of limitations for filing a civil lawsuit was two years.
The lawsuit asks the court to make Terri Horman say where Kyron is and claims custodial interference and intentional infliction of emotional distress, reports KGW News.
“It also asserts that Terri Horman kidnapped Kyron,” said Eldon Rosenthal, Young’s attorney.
Rosenthal also said that the lawsuit will allow him to subpoena witnesses and obtain documents, including emails and text messages.
“I believe we will be able to prove what happened in this case,” he said.
Desiree Young had a prepared statement that she read on the steps of the Portland Justice Center.
“My family and I are living through a nightmare that most families cannot even imagine. My Kyron has always been my comfort and my joy. I will forever have a hole in my heart because he’s not here,” said Young.
Young believes that Terri Horman knows where Kyron is, and that the criminal justice system will do its part.
“I don’t want Terri’s money. I want Terri to face justice. Through this process, I hope to compel her to face responsibility for what she has done,” said Young.
Kaine Horman, Kyron’s father supports the lawsuit as long as it does not interfere with the criminal investigation, reports KATU news. In a civil case a defendant can be found guilty based on a “preponderance of evidence,” which is a lower burden of proof.
Kaine Horman also believes that Terri had something to do with his son’s disappearance. In August 2011, he extended his restraining order against Terri which will end later this month. He obtained the restraining order after police told him that Terri had conspired to hire a landscaper to murder him.
Kyron went missing two years ago from Skyline Elementary school in Oregon on June 4, 2010. Terri Horman had taken him to school and took the last know photo of him standing next to his science project.
Terri has not talked to detectives for two years after retaining a lawyer.

Kaine Horman, the father of missing Portland, Oregon boy, Kyron Horman, 7, said that he believes that his wife, Terri Moulton Horman, the step-mother of Kyron, is responsible for his disappearance.
Also, the newly released court documents confirm the report by the Oregonian newspaper that Terri was looking for someone to kill her husband before Kyron disappeared.
Kaine has also revealed that Terri failed the polygraph tests during the investigation and that she shared the news of the tests with a room full of people.
“She would vent about the failure, talk about what she failed on, go into great detail about how she felt about it, and that happened multiple times,” Kaine said.
In the restraining order that was released on Thursday, there was revealing information about Kaine’s suspicions about his wife.
“I believe respondent is involved in the disappearance of my son, Kyron who has been missing since June 4, 2010. I also recently learned that respondent attempted to hire someone to murder me. The police have provided me with probable cause to believe the above two statements to be true,” the petition read.
Kaine spoke with the Associated Press on Thursday and said that after the birth of their daughter Kiara in 2008, Terri began to suffer from postpartum depression. He said his wife didn’t tell him, but vented to friends, including Kryon’s mom, Desiree Young.
“I think with the birth of our daughter, she definitely changed emotionally. She did have some postpartum depression after the pregnancy and she had some very strong difficulties with that,” said Kaine.
Desiree also spoke at the press conference and said things just didn’t add up.
“I’ve known her a long time, I know she’s lying. There are just some things in there that didn’t sit well with me, and it just didn’t sound right. I’m very familiar with that school and there were just some things that I knew couldn’t be correct,” said Young
Investigators have not named Terri Horman as a suspect or a person of interest, although in recent weeks they have focused their investigation on her.
