Kyron Horman disappeared from Oregon school 13 years ago
On June 4, 2010, Kyron was taken to school by his stepmother, Terri, who stayed with him while he attended a science fair. Terri stated that she left the school at around 8:45 a.m. and that she last remembered seeing Kyron walking down the hall to his first class. However, he was never seen in his first class and was instead marked as absent that day.
A photo on the center’s website and video posted to its social media shows a young man of 19 or 20 with light brown hair and blue eyes covered by rectangle-shaped glasses.
The boy’s stepmother snapped the last known photo of Kyron on the morning he went missing as he posed in front of his science fair project about the red-eyed tree frog. He wore a black T-shirt with “CSI” in green letters and a hand-print graphic. Police say he was also wearing black cargo pants, white socks and black Skechers sneakers with orange trim. He had a distinct V-shaped strawberry birthmark on his forehead.
Adventures With Purpose steps in on this case remembering that over 2 years earlier they pulled a Red Wagon from a nearby boat ramp on Sauvie’s Island.
DID IT HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH KYRON’S DISAPPEARANCE?
In late June 2010, in the midst of the investigation into Kyron’s disappearance, Kaine Horman was reportedly told by investigators that Terri had offered their landscaper, Rodolfo Sanchez, “a lot of money” to kill her husband. Sanchez testified in a deposition that Terri approached him to help kill her husband in January 2010, five months before Kyron’s disappearance.
“I bet your momma wishes every minute of every day that she could talk to you”.
Terri failed two separate polygraph examinations regarding Kyron’s disappearance.
On June 1, 2012, Kyron’s mother, Desiree Young, filed a civil lawsuit against Terri claiming that she was “responsible for the disappearance of Kyron.
The lawsuit attempted to prove that Terri had kidnapped Kyron on the day he disappeared.
Young sought $10 million in damages from Horman.
In early October 2012, Spicher refused to answer any of the 142 questions posed to her during a deposition regarding Young’s lawsuit. Among these questions were ones regarding Spicher’s whereabouts on June 4, 2010, and her contact with Terri that day. She also declined to identify a photo of Kyron, whether she had met him before or not, and whether she knew his father, Kaine.
During testimony provided by Kaine Horman in a separate hearing the same year, he stated that police had told him they “have more probable cause to think Terri Horman was involved in Kyron’s disappearance than they did two years ago.”
On July 30, 2013, it was announced that Young had dropped the lawsuit against Terri so as not to interfere with the ongoing police investigation.
Local and state police, along with the FBI, conducted an exhaustive search for Horman and launched a criminal investigation but have not uncovered any significant information regarding the child’s whereabouts. His disappearance sparked the largest criminal investigation in Oregon history.

“The possibility of Kyron still being alive is not zero, and our greatest hope has always been that he would be returned to his parents unharmed,” Liedle said.
