Medford, Ore. -- Today, the families of missing children met with law enforcement agencies from across Oregon and northern California.

In attendance, Medford resident Desiree Young. She's the mother of Kyron Horman who went missing from his Portland school in 2010.

Today she spoke to the group about her near four year search for her son. Her speech was part of the child abduction response training that's taking place this week in Medford.

In association with the Amber Alert program, the training will join together multiple agencies... should a child go missing.

There are only 100 C.A.R.T. trained teams in the country.
