EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - The stepmother of an Oregon boy who vanished four years ago has withdrawn a request to change her name.

Terri Moulton Horman asked a Lane County judge last month to change her name to Claire Kisiel. A hearing scheduled for Thursday was canceled after Horman withdrew her request.

Horman made a similar request earlier this year in a different county, saying she wanted to start a new life and avoid the stigma attached to the disappearance of Kyron Horman.

A judge denied the request, saying it wouldn’t be in the public interest because an investigation remains open

The 7-year-old boy went missing in June 2010 after Terri Horman dropped him off at his Portland school. An intense search came up empty.
