He has been missing in 2010.

Kyron Horman hasn't been seen in nearly 10 years. 

On June 4, 2010, the 7-year-old boy from Portland, Oregon, disappeared from his elementary school. The last person to see Kyron alive was his stepmother, Terri Horman, who claimed she took him to school for a science fair. She noticed he was missing later that afternoon when he wasn't on his school bus. 

Though she's never been officially named as a suspect, she's remained a "person of interest" in the case that has long been unsolved.

Terri, who now goes by Terri Lynn Moulton, has always denied having any involvement in Kyron's disappearance. However, Kryon's mother, Desiree Young suspects that she had something to do with it. 

"Yeah, I believe that she did something that day," Young said. "She still hasn't revealed all of the true things that happened on June fourth."

In 2016, Terri was arrested after she stole a gun from her roommate. Later that year, she was arrested again for driving a stolen car. Prior to her arrests, her last public appearance was on Dr. Phil that same year. 

"Everything that's been happening is just what we already know about her true nature. And that she's a criminal." Desiree said, "And I think that when she goes out there and grants interviews with Dr. Phil and continues to lie and not give us anything of any value it is somewhat frustrating because we're just still here dealing with the aftermath.

"Everyday living without answers and living without Kyron."

On the anniversary of Kyron's disappearance, Desiree posted a cryptic message to Facebook that suggested there was a big update in her son's case. 

"Now 8 years later we are still asking those same questions. How in the world can we still be here? Well not if I have anything to do about this. 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."

Court records revealed that Terri remarried this year after divorcing Kyron's father, Kaine Horman. Their marriage ended shortly after the 7-year-old went missing and a restraining order was placed on Terri. 

She was also involved in a 1990 murder-for-hire plot, which is still under investigation but has not been charged. 

In 2017, it was learned that the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office was conducting ground searches and new computer evidence in Kyron's case, but he still has yet to be found.

If you have information about Horman's disappearance, please call 911 or the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office at 503-823-3333.
