PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The mother of an Oregon boy who vanished nearly two years ago has filed a lawsuit against his stepmother, the last person known to have seen him.

The suit filed in Multnomah County Circuit Court by Desiree Young asks a judge to order Terri Horman to return Kyron Horman or, if he's dead, to say where his remains are.

Investigators have long focused on Terri Horman, although they have not named her as a suspect or filed criminal charges.

The suit accuses her of kidnapping Kyron, by herself or with help. Young seeks $10 million but says she will give away any money she's awarded.

The boy was 7 when he disappeared June 4, 2010, after a school science fair.

A lawyer for Terri Horman didn't return a phone call.
