Kyron Horman's mom: Weekend search turned up possible evidence

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

During a news conference at Skyline School Sunday evening, Desiree Young said a search she organized for her missing son, Kyron Horman, was successful.

About 60 volunteers, two nonprofit organizations and 10 search dogs focused on the area around Northwest Germantown Road and Skyline Boulevard.

The search started Saturday morning and wrapped up Sunday.

"We're not going to find Kyron if we're not searching," said Young.

Young said the search turned up "a lot of things and possibly evidence," but she would not elaborate on what items were found. She said the items were turned over to the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office. A spokesman for MCSO said they received the items and were processing them to determine whether it's related to the Kyron's case or not. MCSO was aware of the search but was not involved.

"It's been a passion of mine to do as much as I can to keep this case moving forward and to help law enforcement to get some answers and find out what happened on June 4th," said Young.

Kyron Horman was 7 years old when he vanished from Skyline School on June 4, 2010. His disappearance prompted the largest search in state history, but he was never found.

No suspect has ever been named in the case, but the investigation centered on stepmother Terri Horman.

"I am not going to lie down and take this," said Young. "I refuse to let Terri win. It's not going to happen that way."

Young said she plans to organize more searches for her son in the future.
