PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Terri Horman is scheduled to appear in court this month on a gun theft charge in California.

The Yuba County Sheriff's Office confirmed that Horman was arrested and booked into jail in July on a failure to appear warrant from a 2015 case.

Investigators said Horman's roommate reported that she had stolen a handgun from his home safe in Marysville, California in August 2015.

Deputies said she was located, interviewed and found to be in possession of the stolen gun.

A warrant was issued when she failed to appear in court in November 2015, according to deputies.

When she was arrested in July, her address was listed as being in Sacramento, California.

Horman is scheduled to appear in court in Yuba County on Dec. 16. She is facing a misdemeanor charge of grand theft-firearm.                         

Investigators believe Terri Horman was the last person to see her stepson Kyron Horman, who disappeared on June 4, 2010. He was 7 years old.

Kyron's mother Desiree Young has long accused Terri Horman of being involved in her son's disappearance, but detectives have never identified her as a suspect in the case.

Terri Horman told People Magazine in January that she considers Kyron "every bit my son" and denied ever harming him.

The investigation into Kyron's disappearance is ongoing. Deputies confirmed a search off Highway 30 in Scappoose in September was tied to the investigation.

At that time, deputies said they will continue to follow-up on tips and conduct search operations in connection with the case.
