PORTLAND, Ore. —

UPDATE: At a somber press conference on Monday, Desiree Young announced that she will be releasing a book about the search for her missing son, Kyron Horman. Young spoke at the Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue Station #72 near Portland.

Young said that she had been working with bestselling author Rebecca Morris to produce the book, and had anguished over the decision to give her account.

All proceeds from the book will go toward a missing childrens' nonprofit organization of Young's choice, she said. The book is to be called Love You Forever, the Search for Kyron Horman.

Young said that she would also be launching a website for updates on the case. She said that there had been recent searches by law enforcement for Kyron, and they had narrowed in on an area of "less than 100 acres."

If you have any information on where Kyron Horman may be, please contact the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office tip line at (503) 261-2847.

This is a developing story, and NewsWatch 12 will be updating this article with more details as they emerge.

INITIAL REPORT: The mother of missing child Kyron Horman says that she will hold a special press conference and community event on Tuesday, June 4.

"I welcome media, Kyron’s supporters and the community that have dedicated so much time and support to Kyron, sharing his story this past nine years," said Desiree Young, Kyron's mother. "I will be announcing something exciting that we are doing to bring more awareness to Kyron’s story and keep up the search for him."

Kyron Horman was last seen at Skyline Elementary School in Portland on June 4, 2010. Police say he was seen attending his school's science fair, but has not been seen or heard from since. He was 7-years-old when he disappeared.

Kyron's disappearance was an explosive story in the media at the time of his disappearance, and has sustained ever since — due in large part to Young's continued efforts.

"I will be hosting a press conference where I will make an important announcement, after which I will take time to answer questions and provide updates on the case and continued search. I welcome anyone who would like to meet me and share your own Kyron stories about how you have come to know my son and how you continue to help us search for him," Young said.

Young has lived in Medford and has never given up on finding more information that could lead to her son.
