    591 children missing in OR, 1114 in WA

    "Investigators said that, in roughly 95-97% of the cases, the missing children were runaways. Two- to three-percent involved custody issues. But occasionally, there were a few cases like Kyron Horman where a child disappears due to unknown circumstances" <snipped>

    In the nearly three weeks since Kyron Horman disappeared, law enforcement officials, reporters and thousands of online commenters have focused their attention on the 7-year-old boy’s fractured family.

    I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.

    examiner article with LE QUOTED/INTERVIEWED**** details emerge about Kyron's Uncle

    Cases related?

    According to Snohomish County Prosecutor Hal Hupp, the cases are not related and Kristian’s recent jail sentence had nothing to do with Kyron.

    “The child molestation case occurred two years ago and the uncle was just found guilty and jailed on June 16,” Hupp said. “Kyron was not the molested child in that case.”

    When asked if Kristian Horman’s child molestation conviction in Seattle, Wash., was part of the investigation in Kyron’s case in Portland, Multnomah County Sheriff’s office spokeswoman, Lt. Mary Lindstand, said, “Yes, I can say that it is part of the investigation.”

    Clearing up misconceptions

    There have been rumors that the “arrest” of the uncle came so close to the date Kyron went missing, that people believe his arrest was somehow connected to Kyron’s disappearance.

    Hupp pointed out that Kristian was not arrested. Kristian’s child molestation trial was scheduled months ago for June 16. He said, “There’s a misconception that Kristian was arrested in 2009. He was not arrested, he was charged.”

    “There has to be probable cause to make an arrest. In sex offense cases, as in other criminal cases, an investigation has to take place,” he said. “The prosecutor’s office has to follow-up with police, a court date has to be set. If the person is arrested they are typically released on bail and they are then out of custody.”

    “If police make an immediate arrest they only have 72 hours to make a determination for charging the accused,” Hupp said.

    The case was heard that day. Snohomish County Sheriff’s office spokeswoman, Rebecca Hover, told Examiner.com Monday, “In February 2009 the judge ordered parole with conditions in Kristian’s molestation case.”

    Investigators in Kyron Horman disappearance say they're not ignoring tips


    Capt. Jason Gates said Wednesday that Kyron's disappearance is the biggest investigation Multnomah County has ever handled and they're working through the tips, but are focused on leads close-to-home and aren't always calling back people with duplicate information.

    "We have detectives going through each and every tip that goes in," Gates said. "Quite frankly, some of those tips are worthless, but it's a process of what are viable to follow up on and what aren't."


    Gates said people shouldn't worry if they don't hear back from investigators. Sometimes people have already reported the same information and investigators have checked it out, he said.

    "It's nothing personal, it's just that we need to concentrate our efforts on fresh information," he said.

    Although Gates wouldn't comment on exactly how investigators are setting their priorities, he did say each tip is filed in a computer program. The program transcribes the tips and catalogues them in a database that detectives can search when pursuing various aspects of the investigation.

    "It's a challenge, there's no doubt about it," Gates said. "But we still have our major crimes team, plus outside detectives and FBI agents that are all helping us with this. So even though it's a challenge to keep up with the tips, we are managing them because of the extra help we're getting."
