Search does not find missing Oregon boy

Posted: Monday, January 31, 2011

PORTLAND, Ore. — A search has ended for a missing Oregon boy who disappeared from his Portland school seven months ago.

Search and rescue teams equipped with cadaver-detecting dogs looked for 8-year-old Kyron Horman on Sunday. The search was focused on Dixie Mountain outside Portland.

Multnomah County sheriff’s deputy Eric Gustafson says the search didn’t turn up anything.

About 50 search team members combed forested areas around turnouts, trailheads and gated logging roads. A thick fog settled over the area in late afternoon and the search ended at about 5 p.m.

Kyron disappeared June 4 from his school in northwest Portland. Despite a massive search and an extensive criminal investigation, no sign of the boy has ever been found.
