The lead investigative agency behind the effort to find Kyron Horman says the case will take a more technical focus starting next month.
The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office made the announcement Thursday, nearly a year after the second-grader vanished from his northwest Portland grade school.
Kyron's disappearance on June 4, 2010, prompted the largest search in state history and drew in dozens of law enforcement agencies.
In October, the investigation was refocused into a task force. And, starting July 1, investigators say they will concentrate on "technology-based forensics, data entry and review of information compiled, leads and specific tasks that have been identified for the investigation, along with continued case development."
The agencies involved will be the FBI, the Oregon Department of Justice, the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office and the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies also released the following facts about the case. To date:
The investigation has focused on Kyron's stepmother, Terri Horman, but authorities haven't named a suspect or person of interest in the case.
Investigators say the case will "continue to hold the highest priority for the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office and all of our partners."
"Through all of the searches, interviews, leads followed, briefings, meetings and discussions with the leaders of the investigation, the conviction remains the same -- there will be a conclusion," the sheriff's office said in a news release.
