A friend of mine who works at Intel emailed me asking for my help in this. Kyron Horman, the son of an Intel employee, has gone missing. The report is vague but seems to imply that the child went missing somewhere in Multnomah County, Oregon. He is 3'8" tall, weighs 50 lbs and has brown hair/blue eyes. He was last seen wearing black cargo pants, white socks and worn black Sketcher tennis shoes with orange trim. If you have seen him or have any information with regards to his whereabouts please contact the Multnomah County Sherrif's Tip Line at 503-261-2847.

Our hearts go out to the Horman family and we hope for a safe return of their boy. Thanks in advance for your help and for reading this.

Update: More information here.

    Now if you can't deal with it and you're having a hissy fit...
    Fucking FAG!

    Some very nice irony here, I thank you sir!

    I hope he is found as well

    I'm surprised that the kid's written description doesn't include the fact that he wears glasses (as per photo)..

    As the father of a 7 year old in 2nd grade I sincerely hope for the best possible outcome for this child and his family.

    They are in my thoughts.

    Bummer. Hell of a world, etc.

    Still, given Ars' international readership, perhaps, next time, an Amber Alert would be more a) productive b) appropriate.

    This case does not yet meet the criteria for an Amber Alert. For one thing, nobody has any description of who the suspect (if any) is.
    Let's hope the AA is not necessary for this case.

    Not sure why you think no Amber Alert has taken place here - that is what allows the media to print names and photos of missing minors which is exactly what has happened. They don't have a description of the suspect or license plate but would provide that if they did.

    Like I said, this case doesn't yet meet the requirements for an AA. You're wrong if you think an AA is required to broadcast the info of a minor.
    I live around here and if there was an AA issued, I would have seen it.
