On June 4th, 2010, 7-year-old Kyron Horman went missing from Skyline School in Oregon. The investigation into his disappearance has been one of the most scrutinized in the history of the state. Even though he still hasn’t been found, Kyron’s mother, Desiree Young, refuses to give up. To honor her son, Young announced that she will release a book about the investigation.
Titled Love You Forever – The Search for Kyron Horman, the book will be written by true crime author Rebecca Morris. It will feature journal entries from Young about the investigation as well as news clippings and notes about the progress (or lack thereof) of the search. Once published, the proceeds will go toward missing children finds.
The search for Kyron Horman has been devastating for Young and her extended family, with inner-strife causing division amongst the group. So much so that Young became suspicious of Kyron’s stepmother, Terri. Terri has denied any involvement in the disappearance. As traumatizing as it is to lose our child, Young said that sharing her story felt necessary:
“I want people to understand there are real people behind the story. It’s not a TV show, it’s our lives. I have been through hell and made it through the other end.”
The book is set to be released later this year. To this day, Young will continue to search for her son.
