Vigil held for 5th anniversary of Oregon boy Kyron Horman's disappearance


PORTLAND, Oregon — About 75 people gathered for a candlelight vigil for the 5th anniversary of an Oregon boy's disappearance.

The Oregonian reports (http://bit.ly/1FAe5Wc ) that 7-year-old Kyron Horman went missing in June 2010 after his stepmother Terri Horman dropped him off at his Portland school. An intense search came up empty.

At the vigil Thursday, Kyron's mother, Desiree Young, spoke about trying to cope with her son still gone without a trace. Red balloons were released into the air for Kyron, and the crowd later gathered with lighted candles and prayed for his return.

A $50,000 reward is being offered by the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office for information leading to the discovery of the missing boy. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the sheriff's office tip line at 503-261-2847.
