TIGARD, Ore. – Kyron Horman’s father held the second annual “Run for Kyron” Saturday, a day after the boy’s mother announced a $10 million lawsuit against his stepmother.

Monday marks two years since the boy disappeared. Investigators said his stepmother, Terri Horman, was the last person to see him before he disappeared from Skyline Elementary School.

Saturday morning, his father Kaine Horman held the event at Cook Park, in Tigard. He said he will continue to raise awareness of his son’s disappearance as long as it takes.

He also said the day was not just about Kyron.

“We also put it in proximity to National Missing Children's Day, trying to recognize both his situation and the bigger situation across the country for missing kids,” he told KGW.

Desiree Young, Kyron’s mother, filed a $10 million dollar civil lawsuit Friday that alleges Terri Horman is responsible for Kyron’s disappearance.

Kaine Horman said Saturday he supports the lawsuit and hopes it will bring more information to light.

He said support from the community, and from other parents who have lost children, has been overwhelming. And the effort is far from over.
