Kyron Horman was taken to school early Friday morning of June 4 by his step-mother.  She had dropped him off at school and took a photo of him standing next to his science fair project, the Red-Eyed Tree Frog.  It is the photo seen for this article at the top.  Kyron and his father had worked hard on the science fair project, which he was so proud of.  That photo was taken just before something mysterious happened to Kyron.  The missing boy was last seen by his step-mother walking to his second-grade classroom after they viewed the science fair displays.

Kyron was in a public school when something happened to him.  No one noticed, in spite of the fact, he had been around the premises that morning, had his backpack and schoolwork on his desk, and never came back to the classroom, that he was strangely missing.  The teacher had marked him absent.  He was reported last seen at 8:45 a.m. by his step-mother when she left. The exact details of what occurred at Skyline Elementary School during that day are not released by authorities.  These are the facts that the public is aware of at this point.

Kyron wasn't noticed missing until he didn't come home.  He never rode the bus home and his step-mother alerted the school.  After that, the missing case of Kyron Horman began.  Within hours, the FBI was called in and search and rescue teams combed the school's parameters and surrounding areas, lasting almost 10 days.

Kyron Horman has been well described as a loving, warm, and good boy.  He didn't have a tendency to wander off and he followed rules.  Those who know Kyron say he's aware of "stranger danger" and that he's not the kind of child to go with anyone he didn't know. 

Authorities call this an isolated case, and inform the public there is no reason to take extra precautions, but that's exactly what parents need to be doing.  Kyron's case went from "missing and endangered" to a "criminal investigation."  Though search efforts have been scaled back, the investigation will continue and will not become a "cold case."

Kyron Horman's disappearance is spotlighted over other missing child cases for the fact it's so disturbing a second-grader was in school with numerous adults around without any trace of what took place that day.  It's upsetting he was marked absent, yet his belongings were at his classroom desk and he was at school that morning.  Whatever Kyron experienced that day on June 4 wasn't suspected by anyone, until 8 hours later - the most critical timeframe to search for a missing child.

This missing boy was failed in a system where he shouldn't have been.  A lot of facts don't add up and the mystery surrounding Kyron's disappearance is baffling.  A Facebook page has been dedicated to missing Kyron Horman here

It's unsettling to see Kyron Horman be a poster child for missing children.  His disappearance marks one of the most disturbing missing child cases known.  This mystery shines light on all missing children and their stories, not just his.
