PORTLAND, OR — The mother of Kyron Horman, who went missing in 2010 when he was seven years old, has posted a message on Facebook implying that news may be coming in connection with the cold case.

Desiree Davidson Young posted a message on Facebook on Monday morning. It read:

Stay tuned, something big is coming, I promise you. Terri isn’t going to get away with staying silent about where Kyron is, and not have to answer for it.

Kyron vanished from his elementary school in Portland on June 4, 2010.

The last person to see Kyron was his stepmother, Terri Horman. Horman told police she took Kyron to a science fair at his school, Skyline Elementary, on the day he disappeared. She has never been officially named as a suspect by police.

Young, told KATU News in 2015 that Horman was “definitely a person of interest” in the case.

Horman, who now goes by Terri Lynn Moulton, has always denied all involvement in the boy’s disappearance. She told People that on the day he went missing, she remembered looking at Kyron’s classmates’ projects at the science fair. She said that she said good-bye to Kyron, and then noticed later that afternoon that he was not on the school bus.

In the interview, Horman said she remembered taking a polygraph test — and said that the polygrapher told her that she had failed.

On May 25, 2017, The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children released an age-progressed photo of Kyron.

Some days, the hope that our child will come home is all that keeps us going,” Young said at an event recognizing National Missing Childrens Day. “It is our job as parents to keep our child’s case in the public eye and keep hope alive.”

Family members and friends have continued the search for Kyron. Investigators say the case is still open and active.

Police have asked anyone with information about the case to call the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office tip line at (503) 261-2847.

If you are in search of a missing person, make sure to enter their information into the database of the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System.
