The search for a missing northwest Portland boy is officially shifting gears today.
Kyron Horman vanished from his elementary school on June 4, 2010. The second-grader's disappearance launched the largest search in Oregon history and drew the national media spotlight onto the boy's family.
The investigation was reshaped into a task force in October 2010 and as of today, the funding that paid for a full-time prosecutor and investigator to be on the case has dried up, according to the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office.
But authorities said that even though the two won't be on the case full time, they will still be actively investigating.
The lead investigative agency, the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office, said the case will take a more technical focus now, with investigators working more specific leads.
The agencies involved in the investigation won't change. The FBI is involved, along with the Oregon Department of Justice.
Kyron's stepmother, Terri Horman, has remained the focus of the investigation. However, no one has been identified as a person of interest of suspect in the disappearance.
