PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The family of Kyron Horman is organizing another search for the missing boy five years after he disappeared from Skyline School.

The search is happening now in the Skyline area. But Desiree Young, Kyron's mother, is trying to keep the specific location private, so not to compromise anything they might find.

Kyron was 7 when he disappeared from Skyline School on June 4, 2010. 

Young said now that five years has come and gone since Kyron was last seen, people are reaching out to her directly to share what they know. While she's not comfortable talking about what that information is, she said it's brought them back here to the Skyline area to search for evidence once again.

Young said dozens of people will be out looking for any evidence that leads them to Kyron. Including K9 teams from as far away as Florida and California.

Young told FOX 12 she's hopeful this latest search turns up something.

"I think this year's our year. We're tired of waiting, tired of the silence and we just want answers. I'm gonna do it until we can bring him home. Not going to give up on that," said Young.

Kyron's stepmom Terri Moulton Horman was the one who dropped Kyron off at school the day he disappeared. But, he never made it to class.

The family has long suspected that Terri knows something about what happened to him, but she has never officially been named a suspect by deputies. The criminal investigation into what happened to Kyron continues.

The new search is expected to go through Labor Day weekend.

The family is still looking for more volunteers who are 18 or older. Those who would like to volunteer should send an email to Young's sister at justice4kyron@yahoo.com.
