Ten months after his disappearance, Kyron Horman's friends and family are launching a series of events to keep him in the public eye.
Kaine Horman, Kyron's father, and volunteers will be manning the tables at Kidfest and the Portland Garage Sale at the Expo Center this weekend.
Armed with T-shirts and bracelets, Horman hopes their presence will start a new wave of awareness for Kyron, who has been missing since June 4.
"Every day, it's that anticipation of when is he coming home?" Horman says. "It's enough ... it's past the point of it even being tolerable.
The organizer of the Portland Garage Sale, David Buffum, says he invited Kaine Horman to set up a table.
"It got real quiet. So, I told him, ‘You've got to keep coming into the public, so this stays alive,'" he says.
Horman says he still believes his estranged wife, Terri Horman, is the key to finding Kyron, but he has given up hope that she'll come forward with the answers investigators need.
"I still believe she has information about what happened to him. I still believe she's not telling the truth about that," he says.
Kaine and Terri Horman's divorce has been on hold for several months and a hearing set for March was postponed. The couple split a few weeks after the boy vanished from his northwest Portland grade school.
Investigators haven't named any suspects in the case or revealed whether they found any evidence during numerous searches around Portland. Kaine Horman and Kyron's biological mother, Desiree Young, maintain Terri Horman is involved in the disappearance.
But, for now, Kaine Horman and his friends are making sure people don't forget Kyron.
"We're just going to keep being active and push the agenda of bringing him home. It's the best thing we can do right now. So, we're going to keep doing it," he says.
The table will be set up at the Portland Garage Sale at the Expo Center on Saturday. They'll also be at Kidfest on the other side of the Expo Center all weekend.
