Partial transcription from four o'clock video - why LE is not releasing more information:
Our investigation at this point remains ongoing.
I realize that at earlier briefings Captain Gates has not able to answer all of your questions regarding the investigative portion of this operation.
I do want to reiterate that we don't release many details of an ongoing investigation for a number of reasons.
Early release of information can affect the operation and integrity of the investigation.
New and incoming information is often unconfirmed and needs substantiation prior to release.
Misleading information can harm both search efforts and the investigation.
If there is information that will cause community participation that will aid in search and rescue efforts, we will bring that information forward.

Kyron Horman search re-energized by new army of rescuers
News Release from: Multnomah Co. Sheriff's Office DAY 7 1200 MCSO BRIEFING REGARDING THE CONTINUING SEARCH FOR KYRON HORMAN
Posted: June 10th, 2010 1:53 PM
Good Afternoon. I'm Capt. Jason Gates, and I am the Incident Commander for today in the continuing search for Kyron.
This morning, we are engaged in an expanding search effort on multiple fronts. While we continue to receive information and move forward with investigative leads, at this time we have no further information to release specific to the investigation. We do however, have new information for you on our expanding search and rescue efforts.
This morning, new search and rescue crews joined the more than 500 members from 18 Oregon Counties already committed to the search of the area surrounding Skyline Elementary school. A complete list of involved agencies can be found on the public website www.flashalert.net/news. We are incredibly appreciative of the tremendous resources brought to bear from our partnering agencies, and are thankful for the ongoing cooperation we share with police, Sheriff's offices many other government agencies across the state for not only search and rescue operations but statewide transport, investigations and other public safety services.
This search continues our original mission. We are searching areas based on information received, completing ongoing detailed searches of areas including back roads, power lines, re-search of areas near the school and expanding searches along our perimeter coinciding with our increased "boot on the ground" resources, keeping with the natural progression of this search operation. The expansion of our ground resources to this point works to keep our probability of detection high.
I would now like to turn this briefing over to Sgt. Diana Olsen, Deputy Shawn Richards and Col. Marti Plotner to talk about our search operations to this point:
Sgt. Diana Olsen, Multnomah County SAR Coordinator:
Our continuing search operations have required relief for many of our searches. Today's statewide response has allowed us to put 125 new searchers in the field today. We have also put horses into the field to assist with access to restrictive areas and to more efficiently search large areas like power line trails. We continue to deploy ground searchers and canine assets.
We are only using certified searchers, and have a sufficient number at this point to staff our search operations.
Col. Plotner, Director of Military Support to the Oregon National Guard:
We are here to assist Multnomah County in this effort to find Kyron Horman.
We have aerial and ground assets which can be brought forward to support first-responders and incident commanders during search and rescue operations such as these.
We are utilizing an Oregon Army National Guard UH-60 Blackhawk to aid civilian authorities and searchers in order to help locate Kyron.
We continue to receive support from not only our partnering agencies, but local groups, business and individual concerned citizens. This support has been overwhelming. We continue to seek any information you may have as this effort continues. Again, this is all about bringing Kyron home. We are doing everything we logically can toward that end.

Police told the family the case does not appear connected to the Kyron Horman disappearance.
The Columbia County District Attorney's Office reviewed the police reports, and determined it doesn't have the evidence to prosecute Phipps for attempted kidnapping, let alone any other felony, said deputy district attorney John Berg. He said prosecutors would have to prove that Phipps intended to kidnap the boy. And although Berg said he couldn't go into details, evidence released by police indicates the man only grabbed at Cameron. He didn't, for example, drag the boy -- an act that would bolster an attempted kidnapping charge.

06/05 Missing 7 year old boy, Skyline Elementary
Early in the morning, PNW recieved a call from our neighboring county to the North for a missing 7 year old boy. The child had last been seen the day before at his grade school science fair. 22 PNW members responded, forming 4 teams to begin a long day of hard searching.
Since the boy had been gone 24 hours, the areas to be searched were vast. The terrain at times went from challenging to vertical cliff faces not easily accessed. What wasn't covered in mud was either a swamp, a tangle of blowdown, or a massive blockade of blackberry brambles mixed with tall stinging nettles.
As no sign of the child was found by any of the more than 150 searchers from virtually every team in the area, PNW has been asked to do a second callout for tomorrow morning at 8 am.
06/06 Missing boy, Skyline Grade School, Day Two
On the second day of searching for the missing 7 year old boy in Northwest Portland, 14 PNW members responded to the 8am callout. The areas to be searched were the same as the previous day, covered in blackberries and stinging nettles, with the addition of a steady rainfall interrupted by occasional downpours.
Fields, outbuildings, tunnels and ravines were combed by the teams with no results. PNW has again been requested to report in the morning.
06/07 Missing Boy, Day Three
For the third day of searching for missing Kyron in Northwest Portland, PNW fielded 10 searchers. The terrain was steep and muddy, and the ever present blackberry brambles kept progress slow in the day's search area. Though the downpours of the previous day were absent, their effects lingered in the swollen streams crisscrossing the properties scoured by the team. Again, PNW has been asked to respond for another day of searching tomorrow
06/08 Missing Boy, Day Four
By now you know what the terrain was like, steep and muddy, covered with blowdown and the everpresent blackberries and nettles. There were also swamps, lakes, ponds and general muck to negotiate. Today it was sunny and too hot, instead of rainy and too cold.
PNW responded with 11 searchers, and has been asked to respond again tomorrow morning.
Every day, team members have left their jobs and commitments to go out and search for Kyron, some using their vacation days to be in the field, some simply going without their pay for the chance to serve. Some are even CEO's and business owners, taking time from their livelyhoods to hack endlessly at brambles to make sure the missing boy is not where they are searching.
Every day so far, all of the team members have driven miles and miles to get to search base, and then to the search areas. Wearing out rainclothes and protective gear, going through miles of pink flagging tape, drinking gallons of coffee, the personal expense in gear and fuel is mounting, but it is a price paid happily for the chance to go out again and try to find Kyron.

06/09 Kyron Horman Search, Day Five.
On the fifth day of searching for Kyron Horman, PNW fielded a team of 11 searchers.
What can be said of the search today that has not been said before?
The terrain was steep, covered in brambles, what wasn't covered in brambles was covered in mud. Not so many nettles today.
PNW has been asked to respond again tomorrow.

On Friday, June 11, 2010, the following statement was given by Kyron's step-father at a 1:00 p.m. media briefing at the Brookhill Historical Church across from Skyline Elementary School. A written statement made by Kryon's father is not available for this release:
"Hello, my name is Tony Young, and I am Kyron's step-father. The family has asked me to speak on their behalf.
Kyron – we miss you. We love you. We want and need you home.
We are doing everything we can to work with law enforcement and the search and rescue crews to make sure you can get back to us as soon as possible.
We want to say how much we appreciate the outpouring of love and support – prayers and thoughts – as we wait for you. Your school friends and their families, the teachers and staff at your school, and the community as a whole have shown how much impact one little boy's smile can have.
You mean everything to us, and until you come home, our family is not complete.
Please Kyron – keep up the hope. We believe in you and we know you will be back with us soon."
