Mother of missing Oregon boy pleads for his safe return

The mother of a missing 7-year-old Oregon boy pleaded for her son's safe return Tuesday, imploring him to "never give up hope."

"Our goals are to expand the search for Kyron and to bring him home as quickly as possible," said Desiree Young, the mother of missing Kyron Horman, who was last seen June 4.

Young, standing alongside Kyron's father, Kaine Horman, gave the statement during a press conference intended to provide an update on the investigation.

However, few details were given by Multnomah County Sheriff's Office authorities, who declined to elaborate on what they called "signicant progress" in the case.

      Are you kidding? As has been reported numerous times, the birth mother was suffering from kidney failure when he was 2 and she went to Canada for treatment giving temp custody to the father. Then when she was better didn't want to turn his world upside down again and put him first. I am sure a difficult decision that will haunt her the rest of her life. Shame on you for pulling the race card, it's pretty tired.

    I reported little boy that looked very much like Kyron last year to "Missing" I don't know if anything came about it. Would it be O.K. to tell my story to the Mom? I left my email so feel free to give it to her if you could. THNX!
