Medford, Ore. -- It's been four years, and still no sign of seven-year-old Kyron Horman. The memory of the day the little boy went missing, is still fresh in his father's mind.
"I remember the day, I remember being at the bus stop, I remember driving up to the school like it was yesterday," said Kaine Horman, Kyron's father.
The boy disappeared from his Portland elementary school back in 2010 and four years later the search effort is still on. Last weekend people in the Rogue Valley washed cars, raising money to try and help find Kyron.
"I'm always surprised to see how many people truly love Kyron, who don't even know him and have never met him," said Kyron's mother, Desiree Young.
Kyron was last seen by his step mother, Terri Horman. She has not been labeled as a person of interest or suspect. However Kane Horman has said he believes she played a role in Kyron's disappearance. But still, four years later Kaine hasn't given up hope.
"I figured we'd have this case resolved and he would have been done and we would have moved on a long time ago. That said, we haven't and I still feel very strongly that he is alive and he is out there," said Kaine Horman.
Young shared her thoughts on Facebook. She wrote: "I will never give up looking for Kyron, I will never stop, and I promise all of my Kyron supporters I will find my Kyron."
Meantime, the custody battle between Kaine and Terry Horman is over, with Kaine getting custody of their five-year-old daughter.
