The parents of missing 7-year-old Kyron Horman are asking a mystery woman to come out and help them find out what happened to their boy.
“We have been informed [by law enforcement] that they have identified a person that has been in close communication with [Kyron’s stepmom] Terri Moulton Horman since Kyron went missing, and her name is DeDe Spicher,” a statement from Desiree Young and Kaine Horman reads. “She has not only been in close communication with Terri but has been providing Terri with support and advice that is not in the best interests of our son.”
Young and Horman have both pointed the finger at Terri Moulton Horman, Kaine Horman’s estranged wife, saying they’re certain she is the person responsible for the Oregon boy’s disappearance from his elementary school on June 4.
According to Young and Horman, Spicher may have information about Kyron’s whereabouts, but is refusing to cooperate with authorities. The couple go on to beg Spicher to come forward, but also warn her that they might pursue a lawsuit against her.
“We as a family cannot understand how anyone can look at Kyron’s smiling face, having information and choose not to help bring him home,” the statement reads. “Please remember what this is about, it’s about bringing a wonderful little boy back to his family.”
A spokeswoman for the local sheriff’s office would not comment on the family’s plea, Portland station KATU reports.
