Kyron's family: fundraising calls not from us

by: KOIN LOCAL 6 - Kyron Horman in undated photo.The family of missing Kyron Horman says someone is calling people around Portland and asking for donations to help support search efforts.

Kyron’s family said they would never make phone calls to raise money, and they’re urging anyone who’s received one of these phone calls to contact police.

The warning comes just three days after an Oregon judge granted Kyron’s father, Kaine Horman, a renewed restraining order against Terri Horman, his estranged wife who lives with her parents in Roseburg.

Kyron Horman was 7 when he disappeared from Skyline School in northwest Multnomah County. His stepmother Terri Horman was the last person to see him. No charges have been brought in the case and Terri Horman is not a suspect in Kyron's disappearance.

In his court petition, Kaine said his estranged wife poses “a substantial safety threat.” Her lawyer, Peter Bunch, told the court the petition allegations are “solely hearsay” and his client intends to fight the restraining order.

Friday’s order prohibits Terri Horman from having any contact with Kaine or their 4½-year-old daughter. The court order has been renewed each year since Kyron’s June 4, 2010, disappearance, according to The Oregonian.
