Kyron Horman's mother is pushing for a civil suit against the boy's stepmother to move forward.
In a motion filed Thursday, Desiree Young says Terri Horman should not be allowed to delay the case. She says any delay would be an injustice to Kyron's loved ones.
Kyron was last seen on June 4, 2010. Terri Horman dropped him off at the Skyline School in northwest Portland for a science fair. She told police she saw him walking down the hall toward his classroom just before 9 a.m., but he never made it there.
"All of us want to find out as much information as we can to bring Kyron home as quickly as possible," said Kaine Horman, Kyron's father.
The civil suit contends Terri Horman kidnapped Kyron and asks a judge to order her to bring him back, or reveal where his body was taken.
Last month, however, Terri Horman asked for a two-year delay in that suit, saying a criminal investigation should conclude before Young's suit goes forward.
But Young's motion filed Thursday says she has waited long enough for the criminal justice system to act and has the right to have her civil claims heard.
The motion adds any further delay could result in records and witnesses disappearing in the case, as well as memories fading - important memories that both of Kyron's parents hope will somehow lead them back to their son.
"We just need to find him and that's job number one, and continuing to suppress or hold back information that could help do that is frustrating. We are all frustrated by the lack of progress," said Kaine Horman.
Young's lawsuit against Terri Horman seeks $10 million in damages, with the option to seek additional punitive damages.
The hearing to discuss Terri Horman's motion to delay that civil case is scheduled for Aug. 15.
