PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - The mother of Kyron Horman will be releasing a new book about her son's disappearance, which will give an inside look about the nine year investigation.

Desiree Young made the announcement at a press conference and community event held Tuesday morning at the Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue Station #72, which is near where Kyron was last seen.

"Love You Forever: The Search for Kyron Horman" was written by New York Times Best Selling Author Rebecca Morris. The book will tell the true story of Kyron's disappearance and give an inside perspective of the last nine years, according to Desiree.

Desiree hopes the book will keep Kyron's name in the public's mind, because he is always on her mind.

"It brings up all that raw emotion. Talking about all the searchers yelling Kyron's name. All those memories are right there," said Desiree.

Desiree said the book will conclude with a chapter she wrote about keeping the investigation active and the changes she has gone through since Kyron's disappearance.

The book will be published soon, and Desiree said all proceeds from the book that go to her will be donated to a missing children nonprofit of her choosing.

Kyron was last seen at Skyline Elementary School on June 4, 2010. He was 7 years old at the time.

A massive search followed and a reward up to $50,000 has been offered in the case.

Investigators have said Terri Horman, Kyron’s then-stepmother, was believed to be the last person to see him, but she has never been named a suspect in the case.

Desiree said she knows Terri is responsible for her son's disappearance, and she is still trying to put pressure constantly on her to talk to investigators.

"No matter what the outcome, no matter what Terri did that day, we still have to find Kyron. We still have to bring him home. We still need to get answers, and we still need to hold her accountable," said Desiree.

She called the last nine years constant trauma and constant grief, and she has a message for Terri.

"You are a horrible person, I get it, but to torture a family for years on end. I know families that have been waiting 30 years for justice. That's not going to be our family," Desiree said at the press conference.

On Tuesday, Desiree said she and authorities have done searches in the passed several months. She also said they have narrowed down the search area to about 100 acres.

"I don't look at those rolling hills and think, we're looking as far as the eye can see, we're not. We're looking in clear areas and we've narrowed it down," Desiree said.

She would not be more specific, but said that both private and public searches are going on, using more advance technology that was not available nine years ago.
