Dad acts as if missing Ore. boy will start school



THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PORTLAND, Ore. - His son's backpack is stuffed with school supplies. Bus passes sit next to a bus schedule. All is ready for the first day of classes on Tuesday.
Kaine Horman has no idea whether his son - who's been missing since June 4 - will be going to third grade this year with his classmates.
But he's full of hope.
"We're all operating as if he will be at school," Horman told The Oregonian on Friday. "As soon as he walks back in the door, we're going to take a lot of time to ourselves, but when he's ready and we're ready to come back, he'll be back in school."
Horman attended the parent-teacher conference at Skyline School on Thursday, where parents were briefed about new security measures including the high-end security cameras that were recently installed. The cameras, donated by Chown Hardware, can pan the grounds, detect people's faces and license plates and be viewed remotely by school officials through the Internet.
Besides the parent-teacher conference, Horman signed his son up for soccer, which Kyron participated in last school year.
Horman bought Kyron a new Iron Man backpack and school supplies, which are in his son's room in his house on Northwest Sheltered Nook Road, and this weekend plans to shop for a birthday present.
Kyron's eighth birthday is Thursday.
Parties are being organized by Desiree Young, Kyron's mom, in Medford that night. Then, next Sunday, Horman will host a birthday party for Kyron at the Family Fun Center in Wilsonville.
Kyron's stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, who was the last person to see him at Skyline School, remains at her parents' home in Roseburg. She's the focus of the investigation into Kyron's disappearance, but has not been charged or arrested.
Horman believes that Terri Horman, whom he's divorcing, helped abduct his son. Although he's confident Kyron will come home, he said that not having the boy around for the run-up to the first day of school has been tough. But he's kept busy, working as a software engineer at Intel, caring for his 21-month-old daughter, Kiara, and tending to activities for his son.
Kaine Horman stands near the Wall of Hope for Kyron at Skyline School earlier this summer. The wall has since been moved to a nearby fire station and will be reinstalled on Tuesday.
The tribute to Kyron that sprung up on a cyclone fence outside Skyline School has been moved 100 yards to a Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue fire station. On Friday, the fence posts were prepared at the station, and on Tuesday the tribute, aflutter with balloons, cards and stuffed animals, will be installed anew.
Besides finding the new site, Kaine Horman and Young helped with a fundraiser Wednesday at 12 Godfather's Pizza locations in the Portland area. Bracelets and gift baskets were sold, and Godfather's Pizza donated 25 percent of the day's sales, raising $14,000. On Friday, Godfather's co-owner Pat Cahill gave an $8,000 check to the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office for search and rescue efforts. The rest went to Kaine Horman for the newly created Kyron Horman Foundation, which he established to pay for other fundraisers, fliers, bracelets and whatever else is needed to raise awareness about his son.
"It's a great start," Horman said. "We still have a lot to do. He's still missing. We need to do everything we can ... to continue to get his name out there."
Sgt. Diana Olsen, head of search and rescue at the sheriff's office, said the $8,000 will be added to the Kyron Horman Fund, set up at Bank of America after the 7-year-old disappeared. Before Friday, that account held at least $14,000 in donations from around the country, said a spokesman, Sgt. Travis Gullberg. He said the Bank of America is managing the money and that nothing has been spent.
Olsen said the sheriff's office will let Horman and Young decide how the funds are used. Eventually, the money could go toward helping with other child abduction cases, Gullberg said.
Horman said that once Kyron comes home he wants to use the foundation to help other families pay for fliers and other forms of support when their children disappear, as Kyron did.
"It was a struggle for us," Horman said. "There was so much that was overwhelming. I want to go out there and help them."

School Saves a Desk for Missing Kyron Horman

Multnomah County Sheriff's Office

Like many parents this time of year, Kaine Horman went shopping for school supplies, buying everything needed for his son Kyron to start the third grade.

"They're all in his backpack in his room, ready to go. He's on the teachers' roster. They have his desk waiting. Everything is ready for him," says Horman, 36.

But Kyron, who turns 8 on Thursday, wasn't there for the first day of school Tuesday. The boy with the big glasses and toothy smile vanished June 4 from his Portland-area school. His stepmother Terri Moulton Horman has become the focus of the investigation but she has never been named a suspect.

As students return to school from summer vacation, a desk will be waiting for Kyron, says Matt Shelby, spokesman for the Portland School District.

"He's enrolled as a student. There's a spot there waiting for him," says Shelby, who adds that school policy states that a child is withdrawn from school after missing 10 consecutive days. "The school is ready for Kyron and we all hope he shows up."

Oregon boy still missing on his 8th birthday

Kyron Horman has been missing since his elementary school in Portland, Oregon, let out for the summer.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS


  • The investigation into Kyron's disappearance continues
  • His mother says she will release balloons to celebrate his birthday
  • Video cameras are being put in place at Skyline Elementary



(CNN) -- Four months after a criminal investigation began into the disappearance of an Oregon boy, officials continue to ask the public for leads and tips.
Thursday marks Kyron Horman's 8th birthday. Desiree Young, Kyron's biological mother, said she will celebrate the birthday by releasing red balloons outside a church in Medford, Oregon.
His stepmother, Terri Horman, said she dropped him off at Skyline Elementary School on the morning of June 4. She has been the subject of intense scrutiny for several months.
In divorce filings, her ex-husband, Kaine Horman, said he believes that Terri Horman "is involved" in the boy's disappearance.

Court documents also allege Terri Horman attempted to hire a man to kill her husband.
Meanwhile, Skyline Elementary began its first day of classes for the year on Tuesday with additional security measures to protect the children and staff.
In a letter to parents, Principal Ben Keefer said video cameras will be installed this weekend at Skyline.
"These cameras will show external views of the building as well as the main hallway," he wrote.
Also, security procedures will be reviewed to ensure they are effective, he added.
Tributes, messages, posters and cards that adorned a "Wall of Hope" for Kyron were moved from school property to a fence outside a nearby fire station, said the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office.

"We're happy that the fire district can provide this service to the community," said Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue Communications Officer Brian Barker. "Our hearts go out to Kyron's family and we all hope for a positive resolution to this case."
