Age-Progressed Photo Released of 7-YO Still Missing After Disappearing in 2010 | Mom Committed to Finding Him

The criminal investigation remains “open and active,” said the Sheriff’s Office in a statement.

June 4th, 2022 marked twelve years of Kyron Horman's disappearance from a Portland elementary school. Now, the National Center for Missing and Endangered Children has released an age-progressed photo illustrating what the 7-year-old boy would have looked like today, according to PEOPLE

"NCMEC forensic artists released a new age progression of what Kyron Horman would look like today at 19-years-old," NCMEC stated on its Facebook page. "He was only 7 years old when he vanished 12 years ago from Portland, Oregon, on June 4, 2010."



 

 

On the day that Horman went missing, his stepmother Terri Horman attended a science fair at Skyline Elementary School, where the boy was photographed in front of his project about red tree frogs. Terri says she watched her stepson walk down the hall toward his second-grade classroom.

"I saw him walking down to his room. My vision of him is the back of his head almost at the door," Terri told PEOPLE in an exclusive interview in 2016. "That's what I see when I sit here and think about him – that's my last thought."

But that afternoon, Horman never got back home. When the bus arrived, he never got off. Teri says she called the school and was told he wasn't there. "He had been unaccounted for six hours," she says.



 

 

Within hours, investigators were searching around the school for the second-grader. And within days, Terri appeared to be the focus of the investigation. 

Meanwhile, Kyron’s biological mother, Desiree Young, said the trip from southern Oregon to Portland never gets any easier as she works to keep the disappearance in the public eye, per Oregon Live.

“Making the drive-in for 12 years and pulling up to the school and knowing this was the last place Kyron was, I can’t even explain the anguish and the heartache,” Young said Saturday during a news conference. 

The criminal investigation remains “open and active,” said the Sheriff’s Office in a statement.



 

On the day the boy disappeared, he was wearing a black T-shirt with “CSI” in green letters and a hand-print graphic, paired with black cargo pants, white socks, and black Skechers sneakers with orange trim. He also has a distinct V-shaped strawberry birthmark on his forehead.

Based on the publicity the case gets, spokesperson Chris Liedle revealed that the Sheriff’s office gets anywhere from one to 20 leads a month. He also shared that two detectives and an FBI agent remain assigned to the case and follow up on the tips they receive. 

Anyone with any information about the boy's whereabouts is requested to contact the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office at 503-823-3333 or 503-261-2847 (tip line) or to call NCMEC at 1-800-THE-LOST.
