Kyron Horman Update – Divers at Columbia River for Second Time
Monday afternoon dive teams arrived in the Sauvie Island area of the Columbia River. Kyron’s case has been shifted from “Missing and Endangered” to “Criminal Investigation.”
The Multnomah County Sheriff’s office has been sparing in their reports on the Kyron Horman missing case. It’s been a frustrating case for everyone and no concrete answers have come forward. A representative of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office did not release any further details into the ongoing investigation.
Friday was the first time sheriff horse trailers were spotted at the bottom of the Sauvie Island. Two days later the Kyron Horman was announced as a “criminal investigation.”
