PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Crews from all 36 counties in Oregon will join the search for Kyron Horman as the focus remains the area around the rural Portland school where the 7-year-old boy disappeared Friday.

The Multnomah County sheriff's office has been leading the search since it began. The additional search and rescue teams are expected to begin arriving Wednesday night and be in the field Thursday.

The boy's family released a statement at a news conference asking residents around the school to check and recheck their property, outbuildings and sheds for any sign of Kyron.

Authorities say the search is still focused primarily on a half-mile radius around Skyline School, which is atop a ridge with a mix of forest and open areas.
