Lt. Mike Shults, the liaison between the Multnomah County Sheriff s Office and the Horman family, read the following statement on behalf of the family:
Kyron s family would like to thank everyone for their support and interest in finding their son. The outpouring of support and continued effort strengthens their hope.
We need for folks to continue to assist us in our goal. Please search your properties, your cars your outbuildings, your sheds. Also check with your neighbors and friends who may be on vacation or may need assistance to search their property.
There are a lot of resources out there to help. Please don t stop.
It is obviously a difficult time and they want to speak to the public so they can hear from Kyron s family as they come together to share their message. Their objective is to keep the focus on Kyron and not about anything else.
Shults also said that the family chose not to be at the press conference because they wanted to keep the focus on Kyron and not on them.
