PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A sheriff's officer says investigators are
limiting the search for a missing 7-year-old Portland, Ore., boy to
the city's metro area, despite tips from as far away as Washington
Kyron Horman disappeared Friday after a science fair at the
rural Skyline Elementary School.
Multnomah County sheriff's Capt. Jason Gates said Tuesday
searching is especially difficult in the dense, hilly terrain near
the school. At least one person was hurt and transported by
ambulance Monday while looking for Kyron. Gates declined to comment
on the injury.
He says the search effort is approaching the largest ever
conducted by the county.
Twenty-two state, local and federal agencies have been following
up on more than 1,200 tips.
