Today is the fourth anniversary of the day Kyron Horman disappeared from his second grade class at his Portland, Oregon school. The community has not found him yet, but it has also not forgotten him.
Desiree Young, Kyron's mother, has announced another search effort to take place on June 21. More information about this and offers to help search and donations can be made at gofundme.kyronhorman, hosted by Kelly Davidson Ramirez, Desiree's sister. If you would like to help search, there is contact information for Kelly Ramirez at the top of that page. A couple of years ago, when a link to that site first appeared here, I telephoned the lawyer representing Desiree and verified that this site is legitimate. His secretary gave me a return phone call a little while later to tell me that Desiree had told her that there were a few scams involving missing children, including Kyron, and that the site set up by Kelly Ramirez is legitimate. She was more than happy to share this information and was encouraged that a few of us are willing to double check the authenticity of a charity or a fund drive prior to sharing the link. Never be shy about making a phone call to make sure a fund drive is on the up and up. I was concerned about asking redundant questions or taking up too much valuable time, but was pleasantly surprised when my efforts were appreciated.
