    ** Please note that it's important, since we'll be reviewing a variety of information, that we don't turn this into a General Discussion thread, and cause more work for our mods. The goal is to look for new information, information that now has more meaning to us than it did earlier, and document it here, so let's stay focused!

    If we want to discuss possible meanings of what we find, let's do it in one of the discussion threads, so we can stay focused on our fact finding mission here.

    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.

    Capt. Gates:

    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.

    - Horman family members have declined interview requests. Some have told The Associated Press they were asked by police not to speak.

    - Gates has been careful to say that his agency remains in charge of the investigation, despite the new search experts and the presence since Monday of the FBI.

    - Some tips claim sightings of Kyron, which Gates said the search teams have checked out and found unsubstantiated.

    "One thing the FBI did reconfirm Thursday afternoon was that they do know for a fact that the photo of Kyron at the science fair was taken last Friday morning."

    He gave few details about where the helicopter flew except he did confirm it did fly in the area of the school, but he declined to say if the helicopter flew anywhere else.

    He said the helicopter is equipped with cameras and FLIR, which is an infrared camera."

    ~snip

    The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday also issued a temporary no-fly zone for all aircraft in a three-mile radius of the school and up to 3,000 feet."

    "Capt. Monte Reiser also said he and search members were still committed to the search effort despite the lack of any publicly announced solid leads over the week."

    - Investigators have questioned 90 percent of the students who attend this school -- and their parents -- to see if any of them saw Kyron on Friday.

    - Staton said the search has expanded to include 532 people on the ground. He said searchers from the FBI, the community and county agencies, will start at "Ground Zero" -- where Kyron was last seen -- and work out from there.

    Staton said the family has cooperated "in every effort."

    There certainly are a lot of talking heads - and reporters - giving their opinions in this case, from very early on.

    Text of the message read by Kaine Horman, Kyron's father:

    Hi I’m Kaine, Kyron’s father. We want to thank the community, the parents, the children, the bus drivers and all those who are being interviewed multiple times to try to find Kyron. Thank you. We as a family know how difficult and stressful this is. By your memories and statements can help us find Kyron. We will never be able to thank you enough for that help. Finally, we would like to thank the media. If it was not for you showing Kyron on every newscast, printing his story in the papers, his face would not be known to everyone. People from around the nation have seen his picture, this helps tremendously. Please help us bring Kyron home.

    snip

    Not only did searchers look for Kyron but they also looked for clues.

    “When they search through areas they’re looking for any kind of debris or clothing, or shoes, or shoeprints – something that would indicate that somebody’s been through there recently,” said Mike Fulk a volunteer with Mountain Wave Search and Rescue.

    snip

    Authorities said they also have completed 100 percent of their interviews with the students at Skyline.

    http://www.katu.com/news/local/96088894.html

    Never noticed that before, that Kaine thanked the bus drivers. Plural. I wonder if they're the school bus drivers, or the drivers shuttling around the searchers.

    Noting at this point, 100% of student interviews complete. I wonder if they ever got to interview the rest of the parents, school personnel, vendors, etc.

    I agree. I noticed that too. It's sometimes hard for me to pick out the facts due to tending toward a personal bias.

    In the Q&A, a reporter asks about parent and staff interviews. The LEO answers:

    "Parents and staff have been involved in those interviews. I don't know if we have confirmation yet on whether or not all parents and all staff have been interviewed."

    Looks to me like they may have backed off answering about parents, staff, vendors, etc. Going to have to keep track through the case review and see if they ever quantify it.

    Officials searching for Kyron Horman displayed clothes similar or identical to those that the missing boy was wearing the day he disappeared.
