Kyron Horman's Parents' Efforts to Keep Case in Spotlight

| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

The parents of Kyron Horman have renewed their efforts to keep their son's case in the spotlight and raise money for his search.

Over the weekend Kaine Horman had a booth at the Portland Roadster Show, where he raised money for the Kyron Horman Foundation.

"Lots of people were happy to see that we're still fighting," Horman told The Oregonian. "It was a very positive event."

On Saturday, Kyron's mother Desiree Young will stage a roller derby to raise money.

A police officer saw a young black couple drive by and pulled them over. What he did next left them stunned:

"Kyron thoroughly enjoys going to the roller derby and watching it," said Young. "We thought this would be a good way to honor him and raise money for the search." 

The Oregonian reports that there has not been a major search effort since the end of January, when about 50 searchers and seven cadaver-detecting dogs searched rural areas north and west of Portland. They turned up no clues.

Lt. Jose Martinez of the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office said there are no immediate plans to resume the search.

Last month, the sheriff's office announced that six FBI agents have joined the case.

"I'm pleased that the FBI has a renewed role, Young said. "I look forward to seeing what comes out of their perspective."

Kyron's stepmother, Terri Horman, was the last person to see Kyron at his school last June. She is clearly the focus of the investigation but has not been charged.
