Searchers spend two days scouring rural area for sign of Kyron

UPDATE • A total of 130 people took part Saturday and Sunday

Nearly 70 people searched again Sunday in rural Northwest Multnomah County as part of the investigation into Kyron Horman's disappearance.

It was the second day of searching in the area. About 130 volunteers and paid search-and-rescue crews took part in the two-day search.

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office said the search was based on tips in the nine-month investigation. Kyron was 7 when he disappeared June 4, 2010, from Skyline School. There are no suspects in his disappearance. A team of investigators from the region is working on the case.

On Saturday, search-and-rescue volunteers from Multnomah County, the Washington County Sheriff's Office, the Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue, the North Oregon Regional Search and Rescue and Search One K9 Detection spent part of the day looking near the area of Northwest Skyline Boulevard and Northwest Moreland Road.

The sheriff's office declined to comment on why the area was searched.
