The mother of an Oregon boy who vanished three years ago dropped a lawsuit on Tuesday that was intended to force the child's stepmother to disclose what she might know about the disappearance.

Desiree Young filed the $10 million suit again Terri Horman last year, alleging the stepmother kidnapped Kyron Horman. She asked the court to order Horman to return Kyron or disclose the location of his body.

Young announced her decision to drop the case after a hearing before a Multnomah County judge. She told reporters the lawsuit couldn't move forward without information that police won't release because of the ongoing investigation.

Kyron was 7 when he disappeared from his Portland school on June 4, 2010. A massive search came up empty and no arrests have been made.
