The search for missing Oregon boy Kyron Horman is going high tech -- now there's a new phone application to assist in the search.

"Text No More" is an Android app that was developed in Portland, Kyron's hometown. The idea behind the app is to stop people from texting while driving.

Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

The app also sends coupons to subscribers, and now mixed in with those coupons are pictures of Kyron. 

“We're one big community. We take care of our own,” said Rodney Stearns, the founder of the company that created the app. “This doesn't let that memory fade away because our memories are really short when it doesn't affect us.”

The company said it is also donating $100 to the Kyron Horman Foundation each time a new business signs up to advertise.

Kyron was last seen at his school on June 4th. His stepmother Terri Horman was the last person to see him. While she has not been named as a suspect, she is clearly the focus of the police investigation into Kyron's disappearance.
