Rumor mill in Kyron Horman disappearance reaches fever pitch
Updated: Friday, June 18, 2010, 6:44 AM

Various reports poured in Thursday from different social media outlets claiming breaking developments.


Earlier in the investigation, online commentary regarding the behavior of Kyron's family prompted sheriff's officials to address some of the public speculation directly.


Despite the many rumors surrounding the case, investigators have remained focused on the task at hand, Lindstrand said.

"They're on their mission and their mission is to find Kyron and bring him home," she said. "They know that these rumors are not true."

Skyline School students and their parents have been asked to answer a questionnaire about their memories of 7-year-old Kyron Horman's last day there.

The questionnaire was prepared by the Multnomah County Sheriffs Office. A copy was obtained by KPAM 860. It asks students about seeing Kyron at the school on Friday, June 4, and whether they saw him in a white Ford F250 pickup truck. Kyron's stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, owns a similar truck and took him to the school that morning.

It's Day 14 in the search for Kyron Horman, but that doesn't mean interest is waning.

National 'People' Magazine profiled the disappearance and subsequent search for the missing 7-year-old Skyline School student.

Hundreds of people have been interviewed by investigators, but so far leads haven't amounted to an arrest or the location of Kyron.

Investigators are tight-lipped about anything related to the investigation.

“We can't release specific information about the investigation because we can't compromise it,” said Lt. Mary Lindstrand with the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office. “We will not compromise the investigation.”

In the ongoing effort to uncover details about seven-year-old Kyron Horman's disappearance, police on Friday were asking parents of Skyline Elementary School students some very specific questions.

KGW has obtained a questionnaire just sent to all the parents which asked, "Did your child see a white Ford F250 pickup truck on 6/4/10 at or near the school?" Police have not said why they were inquiring about this particular type of truck, but Kyron's step-mother, Terri Horman does drive one. The questionnaire also asked, "Did your child see Kyron's step-mom, Terri on 6/4/10, at or near the school?"

Kyron Horman's Stepmom Under Scrutiny in Missing Child Case

(June 18) -- The search for missing 7-year-old Kyron Horman is now focused on the boy's stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, who was the last person to see Kyron before he vanished.

Two weeks after the little boy disappeared from his Oregon elementary school, Willamette Week reports that investigators have determined that Moulton Horman was not where she said she was on the day her stepson vanished.

The investigation into missing Portland boy Kyron Horman is now focused on his stepmother Terri Moulton Harmon, seen here with Kyron's father Kaine.
Police say cell phone records show that on June 4, the day Kyron was last seen, Moulton Horman was on Sauvie Island, five miles from Kyron's school.

Captain Jason Gates Statement 06-18-10

First, we want to dispel any rumors that Kyron has been located. He has not yet been found and we ask the community to continue looking. Kyron, we are still looking for you.

These erroneous reports have come through the social media. We ask the professional media to please continue to verify information with our PIO Lt. Mary Lindstrand before releasing. We don’t want false rumors to harm our investigation efforts and they are harmful to Kyron’s family as well.

The search continues and the investigation is continuing on several fronts.

I cannot comment on specifics but Can say that our detectives and searchers are continuing to follow-up on many leads to include establishing and verifying information relating to Kyron’s activities prior to his disappearance

As reported in the press conference on June 14 we are initiating a second canvas of everyone who was at Skyline School on June 4 in order to ensure that we reach every person who was present on that day:

Detectives work in this case is exhaustive and they, along with Kyron’s family, are asking for the community’s assistance regarding anyone who saw not only Kyron, but also who may have seen Terri Horman and/or the truck she was driving that morning. Terri is the last person known to have seen him before he disappeared.

Statement from Kyron Horman's Family

It has been two weeks since our son, Kyron, disappeared. For the last 14 days we haven’t been able to talk to him, see him playing around the house, or tuck him in bed. Any parent would understand the grief this has caused our family.

We are so grateful for the support and work of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office as well as the hundreds of searchers, police officers and FBI for what they have done during the last two weeks. They have never met Kyron but we know that this has been very tough on them also.

To Kyron’s teachers and classmates, as well as the media and the community, thank you for your support in trying to find Kyron. Your interest and help is overwhelming.

We are sorry that we aren’t there today to stand with investigators, but please know that we fully support the release of this flyer. We want Kyron home and we hope this will help do that.

Father’s Day is Sunday. For the first time in seven years, we will not have Kyron around to hug and talk to. It hurts us deeply and our hearts are broken.

Please help bring Kyron home.

Lindsey Baum's mother offers support to Kyron Horman's family
Posted on June 18, 2010 at 4:15 PM

Updated today at 4:19 PM

OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Most parents don't know what it's like to have a child disappear.

Unfortunately for Melissa Baum, that's not the case.

"Until it happens to you," Baum told KING 5,"you don't have a clue."

Baum's 10-year-old daughter Lindsey vanished while walking home from a friend's house in McCleary, Wash., last June.

Melissa Baum recently wrote an email to the family of the missing 7-year-old from Oregon, Kryon Horman. Baum wanted the family to know there was someone nearby who could relate to what they were going through.

That was something she needed last year.

"I felt a lot more alone before I met with other families," said Baum.

Baum has not heard back from the Horman family.

Police Distribute Flyer With Photo Of Kyron Horman, Stepmother

Portland, OR June 18, 2010 4:18 p.m.

The form has a picture of the second grader and his stepmother, Terri Horman. It asks people whether they saw Kyron and who he was with. It also asks whether they saw Terri Horman and when, and about her truck -- a white Ford F-250.
Captain Jason Gates with Multnomah County was asked whether the stepmother is now a suspect or person of interest.
Jason Gates: We're not in a position to talk about people of interest. She's associated with the case because she's the last person to see Kyron."

Kyron Horman News and Case Update – Kyron’s Stepmother Under Scrutiny (http://cnmnewsnetwork.com/122024/kyron-horman-news-and-case-update-kyrons-stepmother-under-scrutiny/)
June 19th, 2010

Kyron Horman News and Case Update – Kyron’s Stepmother Under Scrutiny. Kyron Horman (http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/kidnap/horman_kr.htm) is still missing over two weeks after he went missing from his school in Oregon. His stepmother claims that she seen him at 8:45 am on June 4th as he was walking towards his classroom 150 feet away. That’s the last time anyone has seen him alive.

Two weeks later, and this missing persons case has turned into a criminal investigation. Authorities have put out flyers, and they seem to target his stepmother, raising a lot of eyebrows.
The flyer asks if anyone has seen Kyron, and also asks if they had seen Terri Horman or her white Ford Truck on the day that the young boy went missing.
The focus of the investigation shifted to Mrs. Horman after her story about what she did on the day of his disappearance didn’t match her cell phone records. Due to cell phone records found, investigators have been combing bodies of water around the area that he went missing from.

Police seek information on missing boy's stepmother
CNN-June 19, 2010 4:37 a.m. EDT


In a brief phone interview with CNN, sheriff spokeswoman Lt. Mary Lindstrand said the focus of the investigation is not on Terri Horman.

"We're looking for every bit of information that we can," Lindstrand said. "We are not in a position to name anybody a person of interest."

06-19-2010, 02:01 PM
The dark-haired and redheaded women standing side by side at a news conference in the Kyron Horman investigation share a longtime bond with the 7-year-old boy gone missing. With a nation looking on, they shared their grief under the glare of television.

The mother, Desiree Young, 38, and stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, 40, have been friends for years, long before the beaming and bespectacled 7-year-old went missing from Skyline School in northwest Multnomah County. Since his June 4 disappearance, his blended family has hunkered down out of public view, emerging only as a group. Neither mother has spoken publicly, and the dads have read only prepared statements.

But details of their relationship have emerged in multiple interviews by The Oregonian with friends and family.

Kyron story is on AMW broadcast right now.

[Sorry. They only showed about 2 minutes about Kyron.]

06-19-2010, 09:28 PM
Multnomah County authorities are asking that Skyline School parents, teachers, staff and anyone else who was at the school the day Kyron Horman was last seen return to the school Sunday with completed questionnaires about that day.

A police officer will be at Skyline School between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. to accept the questionnaires.

Investigators on Friday released the questionnaires and fliers with photographs of Kyron; his stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman; and a white pickup similar to one she drives. They hope the images jog the memories of those who may have seen Kyron and his stepmother June 4, the day the 7-year-old disappeared.

"The purpose of this is to get information that they might not have thought about reporting before," said Lt. Mary Lindstrand, a Multnomah County sheriff's spokeswoman.

There wasn't a lot of actual search activity apparent Saturday, but there was some. A KOIN Local 6 crew did see a couple of search and rescue crews near the school. Law enforcement officers refused to divulge where they were headed or what they were doing. However, investigators did confirm that they were still searching for Kyron Horman.

Terri Moulton Horman Investigated in Kyron Horman’s Missing Case (http://buzzytimes.com/terri-moulton-horman-investigated-in-kyron-hormans-missing-case/)

The first thing that set investigators off was when she updated her Facebook page after Kyron Horman became missing to say she was “hitting the gym” This raised some doubts as it was not in normal character for a parent of a missing child. Although the officers did tell the family to try and go about their normal business and try to stay healthy.

06-20-2010, 08:41 PM
The extra scrutiny on Terri Horman is taking an emotional toll, according to a close friend.
"I want people to know that she's a good person she's a devoted mother," said Jaymie Finster. "She's been in Kyron's life since he was 3-day-old."
Finster has been a close friend of Horman's since the two attended junior high school together in Roseburg.

She says the quality of attention Horman is getting from the disappearance of her stepson, Kyron, is unfair and damaging.
"I think a lot of people just want to go with the information that we don't have and try to make something of it and that's very hurtful and hard for me to see happening."

Parents, others from community return questionnaires Sunday in the effort to find Kyron Horman

Cars and trucks pulled periodically into the parking lot at Skyline School, where Multnomah County authorities waited in the drizzle Sunday to collect questionnaires that they hope will bring new clues to help them find missing 7-year-old Kyron Horman.

Chris Feryn was among about the dozen or so parents who dropped off a questionnaire before 11 a.m. Feryn's son just finished seventh grade at Skyline and had answered questions in the days since Horman was last seen at the school on June 4.

"He didn't have a lot of information the first time," Feryn said about his son. "We'll try to help out however we can."

A Multnomah County Sheriff spokesman said there was nothing new to report in their investigation as of noon Sunday.


06-20-2010, 09:31 PM
Scores of questionnaires from the parents of Skyline children were turned in by Sunday afternoon, giving investigators new clues to study as they try to untangle the mystery of the disappearance of Kyron Horman.

While most of the surveys were returned on Sunday, some parents had emailed them in earlier and sources told KGW that they were receiving fresh information and fresh leads to pursue.

Kyron Horman update: Scammers looking to cash in on emotions surrounding case of missing Oregon boy
According to the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, con-artists are preying on human emotions attempting to scam those who want to help in the search for missing Oregon boy, Kyron Horman (http://www.examiner.com/x-1168-Crime-Examiner~topic870485-Kyron-Horman).

06-21-2010, 02:36 AM

In an interview for "Good Morning America" filmed at KATU's Portland studio, Jaymie Finster said Terri Horman is a bit tired, wants Kyron home and is frustrated over the investigation now pointing towards her. She said Horman signed off on this interview because some of the public's accusations and speculation on the Internet has been so damaging.
