(Newser) – A breakthrough at last in the Kyron Horman case? The mother of the Oregon boy who disappeared on June 4, 2010, says a search in the Portland area turned up "a lot of things and possibly evidence." Around 60 volunteers and 10 search dogs were involved in the hunt for clues to the whereabouts of Kyron, who was the focus of the largest search in Oregon's history when he disappeared aged 7, KPTV reports. His stepmother was the focus of the investigation but police have never named a suspect in the case. "I still feel like I'm stuck back on June 4," his mother tells the Oregonian. "I can't move on from that because I don't have answers, I don't have Kyron."

I used to live in Troutdale, OR, and I have been following this sad story ever since I first heard Kyron disappeared from the Skyline school, and always wondered how he possibly could have just vanished from the school. I thought schools were supposed to keep a better eye on the kids because they are supposed to be responsible for them. if they had cameras up in that hallway, that would have helped them to maybe see what happened to him there...anyway now they are saying here that they have found "a lot of things and possibly evidence". What does that mean? I would like to know, is it good or bad evidence? So are they thinking he is alive or dead? They're not being real specific about what kind of "evidence" they found. If he is alive somewhere, that is awesome evidence. If he comes back dead, that would be extremely sad and I would feel so very sad for his mom, really I would be, but atleast then, Mom could properly give him a nice funeral and bury the poor child, I am sorry I brought that up, but it's just the fact of life, but I am hoping that he is alive...I'll keep praying that he is found alive, and I am praying for his mom, I can not imagine the great pain that she's been feeling for these 3 years that he has been missing, and what she is going through. I plan on following this story as long as he is not found. Prayers!!

With all that spying on citizens NSA, DEA or others couldn't help. Oops, they only tell you if they receive a tip. With all that technology and they relying on tipsters, pretty pathetic. I feel for the parents, this is a heart breaker.
