The FBI has launched a digital billboard campaign to draw attention to Oregon’s largest missing persons case — the tragic 2010 death of a 7-year-old boy.
The FBI said Thursday started with billboards in the Kyron Horman case in five Oregon cities, including Portland.
Kyron disappeared June 4, 2010 in the northwest of Portland, and his heartbroken mother still prays for his return, KPTV on Thursday reported.
“The other day I was listening to one of his favorite songs and I could only take a photo of us dancing around the living room again,” said Desiree Young, to the station. “And I just want those moments and those memories back.”
Young spoke about her son on a National Missing Children’s Day event in Salem.
She believes Kyron’s stepmother, is responsible for the boy’s disappearance, to the station.
Terri Horman was the last person known to have seen him, police have said. The police never charged her or her labeled as suspect. She has denied harming the boy.
“Time is running out, and Terri is going to be held accountable,” said the Young, according to KPTV. “I have confidence in. And she can’t help but be itself, and that is what I am relying on.”
Kyron lived with his stepmother at the time of his disappearance.
She divorced Kyron’s father and left Oregon, The Oregonian Thursday reported.
California police charged her at the end of last year with the drive in a stolen car near San Francisco, according to the paper. Also, they are confronted with a temporary restraining order from a man in an alleged domestic violence case.
