PORLTAND -- The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday asked for the public's help in the ongoing investigation into the disappearance of 7-year-old Kyron Horman.

Authorities want to identify a mystery person seen inside or around the white Ford F-250 truck driven by Kyron Horman's stepmom, Terri Horman, the morning he vanished. They are asking for witnesses who may have seen the truck near Skyline Elementary School on June 4 between 8:15 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. to contact them.

They are also asking anyone to come forward who may have seen the vehicle at several possible locations near Skyline Elementary or at  Fred Meyer stores in Hillsboro and Beaverton later that morning:

*At the Fred Meyer at 22075 Northwest Imbrie Drive in Hillsboro around 9 a.m.

*At a Fred Meyer at 15995 SW Walker Road in Beaverton at approximately 10 a.m.

*On or near Skyline Road between approximately Springville Road and Newberry Road

*On or around Germantown Road or Old Germantown Road at approximately 10:15 a.m.-10:30 a.m.

In sum, investigators are looking for credible witnesses.
"We want someone to come forward to tell us what they actually saw as oppose to what they think they saw based on suggestions by the media popular press or word of mouth," said Multnomah County Sheriff's spokesman Jason Gates. 

Gates refused to offer any details about the direction of the investigation. Authorities have not named any suspects in the case.

Sources say Spicher was apaprently gardening at a home near Skyline Elementary School when Kyron vanished.

The sources also said that Spicher left the area where she was gardening at 10 a.m. and was unaccounted for until 1 p.m., despite efforts to reach her by cell phone.

Over the weekend, police distributed fliers to residents living in a wooded area a couple of miles from the school, The flier shows photos of Terri Horman's friend, DeDe Spicher, and asks, “Did you see DeDe Spicher anywhere in the area on June 4, 2010?”

It also contains more photos of Kyron’s step-mother, Terri Moulton Horman and her white truck, as well as questions about both. A previous police flier featured Terri, but this was the first time investigators have zeroed in on Spicher in this way.

If you have any information about the Kyron Horman case, police want to hear from you. Just call the tip line at 503-261-2847.
