More than five years after the disappearance of Kyron Horman, the boy's mother said new information from possible eye witnesses helped guide search efforts over the weekend.

Desiree Young said planning and fundraising for the weekend searches began six months ago.

On Saturday, the discovery of bones sent a shock through the search parties. Police determined the bones were from an animal, but Young said it was agony waiting for that determination to be made.

"Even though you hope to find answers, you really don't want to find answers too, at the same time," she said, adding, "It'll probably take a couple weeks for me to sleep again."

Young said she continues to be overwhelmed by the amount of people who volunteer their time to search for her son.

Kyron Horman disappeared on June 4, 2010. He was 7 years old when he was last seen at Skyline Elementary School.

No arrests have ever been made in the case, but Young continues to point the finger at Kyron's former stepmother, Terri Horman.

"Terri doesn't make friends, and it's fortunate for us, because it helps us," Young said Sunday.

Kyron's father Kaine Horman was granted a restraining order against Terri Horman in 2010. Their divorce was finalized on Dec. 31, 2013.

Young said over time, they learn more about Terri Horman's behavior the day Kyron disappeared.

"The world's closing in around Terri and I'm coming for her and we're going to get her in jail if it's the last thing I do," Young said.

As for the weekend search, Young said there is plenty to take away from it.

"I have to remember he needs me to do this," Young said of her son. "We're finding where he's not, and that's helpful too."

A $50,000 reward has been offered in the case. Anyone with information is asked to call the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office tip line at 503-261-2847.
