On June 4, 2010 while attending a science fair at Skyline Elementary School with his stepmother, a seven year old boy named Kyron Horman was abducted. He was last seen walking down a hallway of the school towards a classroom. Around 3:30 p.m. that same afternoon, when little Kyron didn't come home from school, his parents called the school. By 4 p.m. the Multnomah county sheriffs department was first contacted about Kyron's disappearance, and by 5:45 p.m. search and rescue teams begin to scour the area. On Saturday June 5, 2010 around noon, the sheriff's office holds a news conference. A sheriff's spokesman says the search for Kyron is still a missing person case and not a criminal investigation. He asks that civilian volunteers stay away from the search area to allow for the police agencies to conduct an efficient search. By 9 p.m. on June 6, the sheriff escalates Kyron's disappearance to a missing endangered child case, but does not call it a kidnapping. Today hundreds of new searchers have joined the effort, in addition to horse-mounted patrols and a National Guard helicopter.
