Volunteer search and rescue teams returned to the hills northwest of Portland as part of the ongoing search for Kyron Horman.
On Saturday, seventy-five volunteers, along with two search dogs, covered dense wooded area along Skyline Blvd. near Moreland Road, according to the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office. Crews searched the same spot in late January, focusing on 11 key areas.
Despite wet conditions, search teams were back out again Sunday morning.
Lt. Mark Matsushima says Sunday's search operations were moved to Northwest Dixie Mountain Road near the Multnomah-Washington County border so radio communication would be improved.
The Sheriff's Office has said the location was picked due to specific information gained through the investigation, but a spokesman couldn't elaborate on details.
Deputy Keith Bybee who was on scene both Saturday and Sunday couldn't elaborate on what if anything was found but said teams will continue their search efforts until Kyron Horman is found.
Kyron has been missing since June 4, 2010, when he was seen at a morning science fair at Skyline Elementary School.
Search teams scoured the areas between his home and school for days after his disappearance. They've also made numerous trips to Sauvie Island to search the murky waters. Bybee says the Kyron Horman Task Force meets frequently to evaluate the investigative tips in the case as well as other factors like weather conditions to determine where and when ground searches will occur.
Deputies have never revealed whether any clues have been found. They also have never formally named a suspect in the criminal investigation.
