TIGARD, Ore. - On Monday, it will have been two years since Kyron Horman disappeared and with that in mind, the boy's father wants to remind people that the search for his son is not over yet.

On Saturday, Kaine Horman and many others gathered at Tigard's Cook Park for the second annual Run for Kyron. More than 100 people signed up to participate in the event.

Horman led the children's run and said it was heartwarming to see so many people show their support.

"I think that there are people in communities all over that just want to know how they can help," he said. "With all the help and support of everyone in the local communities, and communities around the nation, it makes it a lot easier."

The event included not only the runs, but also activities for children and items that people could take home to remember Kyron.

There is hope that one day the name of the event will change from the Run for Kyron to the Run with Kyron.

The boy disappeared on June 4, 2010. His stepmother, Terri Horman, was the last person to see him alive and has long been the focus of the investigation, although she has never been formally named a criminal suspect.

Kyron's biological mother, Desiree Young, filed a lawsuit against Terri Horman this past week claiming that she is "responsible for the disappearance of Kyron." The suit directly asserts that the woman kidnapped Kyron and "intentionally interfered with [Young's] parental rights, inflicting severe emotional distress."
