MEDFORD, Ore. -- The mother of missing 7-year old Kyron Horman filed a $10 million civil lawsuit Friday against the boy's stepmother Terri Horman in connection with his disappearance two years ago.
Desiree Young's lawyer, Eldon Rosenthal, says that the statute of limitations for filing a civil lawsuit in the case was two years.
The lawsuit asks the court to compel Terri Horman to disclose Kyron's location, according to KGW.
It also includes two claims, one for custodial interference and one for intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Rosenthal said the lawsuit will also enable him to subpoena witnesses, acquire documents and evidence and "peel away the mystery" of what happened to Kyron.
Kyron vanished June 4, 2010 after attending a science fair at Skyline Elementary School in northwest Portland.
Police say Kyon's stepmother, Terri Horman told them she took Kyron to school on the morning of June 4.
Horman took a photo of Kyron in front of his science project.
She told police that she last saw him walking down a hallway toward his second-grade classroom, wearing a "CSI" T-shirt and dark cargo pants.
Kyron's father filed for divorce from Terri Horman just weeks after the boy disappeared.
Kaine Horman told a judge he believes his wife was involved in the disappearance and said investigators had told him that he was the target of a murder plot by her.
Terri Horman denies the murder-for-hire plot and has not been charged nor has been named a person of interest or a suspect in the disappearance of the little boy.
