PORTLAND, Ore. – The mother of Kyron Horman called a new weekend search for her missing son a success and said searchers found possible evidence that could help the case.

Volunteers searched in Northwest Portland near Skyline School, where Kyron was last seen more than three years ago.

"We found a lot of things, and possibly evidence," said Desiree Young.

Young did not comment on what searchers found or where they found it, citing the ongoing criminal investigation. She said ten dog teams from all over the country joined the search.

"I think that this weekend's search did a great deal," she said. "A lot of this information has to go to law enforcement, but I can say that it was successful."

Young said she’s glad people have not given up searching for her son. She thanked the dozens of volunteers who helped with the search.

"We took quite a lot of time to plan and execute this search," she said. "It was two days of solid searching."

No one has been charged with a crime related to Kyron’s disappearance. In July, Young dropped a civil suit against Terri Horman because she said she didn't want it to jeopardize the police investigation. In the suit she claimed that Terri Horman was “responsible for the disappearance of Kyron.”

A Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said they were aware of the weekend search. Young said authorities were very supportive and were called to the scene "multiple times."

"I just want to rule out all areas (that) I can and search every area possible," said Young. "We're not going to find Kyron if we're not searching."
