PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Terri Horman, the step-mother of missing boy Kyron Horman, spoke to People Magazine in an interview released Wednesday morning, marking the first time she has spoken to the media since Kyron’s disappearance.
Kyron Horman disappeared from Skyline Elementary School on June 4, 2010. He has not been seen since, and investigators say Terri was the last person to see him.
“I saw him walking down to his room. My vision of him is the back of his head almost at the door,” Terri tells People.
She tells the magazine that she wants the focus off of her and back onto finding Kyron. She spoke about her close relationship with the boy, who she first met when he was 3 days old.
“At what point, and I’m referring to law enforcement and the biological parents, at what point are they going to realize I don’t have the answers and they need to change this, that’s why I’m here today, they need to change this around and focus on finding him,” she says.
Terri says she loves Kyron and doesn’t have the answer to where he is. She says she never hurt him.
“These last five years have been a bad dream,” she says. “I want Kyron home, I love my son.”
Kaine Horman reacted to Terri’s interview, urging her to speak to investigators and not the media.
