On the morning of the science fair, Terri helped him set up, and took a photo of Kyron with his project. Then, she left the school at around 8:45, claiming she saw Kyron heading to his class. She needed to go run some errands, as her daughter Kiara was having ear issues and she needed to get her some medicine. Terri proceeded to go to several different stores, as the first one apparently was out of the medicine that she wanted. Once she finds the medicine, she then drives around on rural roads to try and get her daughter to sleep after she had given her the medicine. Around 9 a.m., another student apparently sees Kyron in the school.
At 11:39 Terri checks in at her gym, and then ends up home at around 12:20. At 1:21 she uploads the pictures from the science fair to Facebook, showing off Kyron looking delighted over his project.
Kaine and Terri both walked to the bus stop that afternoon at about 3:30 to meet Kyron... but he didn't get off the bus. Rushing to the school they learn that he was marked absent for the day, he hadn't attended any of his classes. At about 3:45 911 is called and Kyron is reported missing.
The school hadn't called when he was marked absent, because the school was under the impression that he had been taken to a doctor's appointment. There is much confusion over this point as Terri claims she had told them he had a dr appointment the following Friday, June 11th... but that also really doesn't make sense because the school would be out for summer then and so they wouldn't need to know that he had an appointment that day.
A large-scale search began, the school, the area around it, and the family's home were all closely looked at, checking any space at all it was possible that he could be in, though no one ever found any signs of him.
Later that month, Kaine filed for divorce and a restraining order against Terri.
Desiree, Kyron's mother still does everything she can to keep the case in the spotlight, hoping even now 12 years later that they will get closure on what happened to Kyron.
