Ex-Detective Weighs In On Renewed Kyron Search

Posted: Oct 4, 2010

Four months after Kyron Horman's disappearance, search teams got back to work over the weekend.

Hundreds of volunteers and investigators returned to Sauvie Island to comb through brush and back yards in an effort to find clues in the boy's disappearance. Investigators said there were no new tips or leads that prompted them to go back to the area, and they won't say whether they found evidence.

Sauvie Island has been a focus of the search since Kyron vanished from his school June 4, but former detective C.W. Jensen said he thinks the renewed effort might not be a good sign for the case.

"If I'm 100 percent sure I've searched an area completely, I don't need to go back", Jensen said. "So, this would say that they're expanding it, or they didn't do it right the first time."
Kyron's father, Kaine Horman, said he thinks the new search shows it is still a very active investigation.

But last Friday, Kyron's mother, Desiree Young, shared her growing frustration and asked for the public's help to get her son back.

"It's been four months now and Kyron is still not home," Young said. "I would like to appeal to everybody and ask everybody to help me get the reward increased."

Right now, there's a $50,000 reward for information that solves the case, but Jensen said he doesn't think more money is the answer.

"No one is sitting around, waiting for it to go up. 'Oh, I want to tell the police, but I'm going to wait until it's $200,000 or $300,000.' No, unfortunately, that's not going to happen," he said.

Investigators said Monday that the search team will probably go back to Sauvie Island next weekend.
