PORTLAND – The parents of Kyron Horman planned celebrations for his eighth birthday on Thursday and Saturday, even though they still do not know where he is.
Kyron vanished almost 14 weeks ago after attending a science fair with his step-mother, Terri Moulton Horman at Skyline Elementary School on June 4.
On his past birthdays, his parents Kaine Horman and Desiree Young would always hold two celebrations – one in Portland and one in Medford. This year they will continue that tradition.
The first event took place at the West Main Church of Christ in Medford, beginning at 7 p.m. It included speeches, a slideshow and prayer, along with Kyron’s favorite birthday treats – chocolate cake and ice cream.
Then, just before dark, his family gathered with guests to release red balloons in his honor.
The second event was planned for this Sunday at Bullwinkle’s Family Fun Center in Wilsonville. There will be an admission fee, in which part of the proceeds will go to the Kyron Horman search fund.
Also to mark Kyron’s birthday, KGW-TV featured a special report, “Missing But Not Forgotten,” starting at 9:30 p.m.
