On The Today Show this morning, Desiree Young described her son as shy, someone who prefers to stay close to home. "He's timid and can't see very well", she said.
Her former husband, Kaine Horman, Kyron's father, was with her on the show. They did a round of interviews with network TV shows to help keep the public informed.
"Honestly, I am a little scared at this point," Young said. "Three weeks is a long time. We need to bring him home."
They say that Kyron understands not to talk to strangers but because he has some trouble following directions in school, they have worked with him on listening to teachers and parents.
When asked if Kyron might have left the school with an adult he may not have known, his mother said,
"I can't say he wouldn't because he knew it's a stranger danger situation.,I don't know if he would recognize that."
It was the third public appearance by the two since Kyron was last seen on June 4 at his school.
Investigators are working through thousands of tips, "throwing every resource" to find Kyron, the parents said. They are working with investigators, Kaine Horman said, including Terri Horman.
