During my daily news routine, I came across a troubling story over at Anandtech. It appears the son of an Intel employee has gone missing somewhere in Multnomah County, Oregon. Here is a brief description of the child, Kyron Horman:

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.

From, here is “a photo posted on his stepmother’s Facebook page shows Kyron Horman in front of his science fair project, wearing the “CSI” T-shirt he was last seen in.”

Sad, sad stuff. I hope the police and search team can locate this child. Seriously guys, I know it sounds trivial, but keep your eyes and ears open. It only takes one person to help this child, so if we are all aware of the situation, it may help the cause.
