KATU: Terri Moulton Horman, the stepmother of missing Kyron Horman, made three 9-1-1 calls the day her husband took their daughter and left their home, sources said Wednesday.

Two of the calls were made in the early evening and then another late at night on Saturday, June 26, according to the sources.

One source said the first call made by Terri came in as a Priority Three call at 5:18 p.m. and was about someone in a truck threatening her.

Moments later Terri made the second call and said a man wanted $10,000. But there was no explanation given for why he wanted it.

The calls were made on the same day a landscaper (who was wearing a wire) and an undercover detective went to Terri's home to speak with her about her alleged attempt to hire the landscaper to kill her husband, Kaine Horman.

The third call came in at 11:39 p.m. and was about a child custody issue. A source said Terri reported that Kaine packed up and took their 19-month-old daughter at 1:30 in the afternoon.

An officer found no parental rights problem and forwarded the call to those investigating the disappearance of Kyron.

Two days after Kaine moved out and took the couple's daughter he filed for divorce and got a restraining order against Terri. Judge Keith Meisenheimer sealed the restraining order because he said allowing it to be made public could put the investigation into the disappearance of Kyron in jeopardy.

But on Wednesday prosecutor Norman Frink wrote Meisenheimer a letter withdrawing his opposition to the unsealing of Kaine's restraining order against Terri.

In the letter Frink writes: "Given the media coverage over the past long weekend, the Multnomah County Major Crimes Team could no longer stand by its assertion in my affidavit of July 2 that unsealing the sealed matters before you would undermine our on-going criminal investigation. I express no opinion on any position Terri Horman might have in the matter."

As of Wednesday evening the document remained sealed. News organizations, including KATU News, have asked the judge to make the restraining order public.

Kyron disappeared June 4 and investigators say Terri was the last known person to have seen him.

The search for Kyron has become a criminal investigation, but no suspects or persons of interest have been named and no arrests have been made in the case so far.

On Tuesday Kyron's biological mother, Desiree Young, made another plea for Terri to cooperate with the investigation.

"Terri, you need to do what is right," she said from the Medford police station where her husband, Tony, is a detective. "Not for me, not for Tony, not for Kaine, not even for Kyron. You need to do it for Kiara, because she needs to see that you did the right thing to help bring her brother home. She loves him very much."

The family said that Terri has not been cooperating with investigators since she retained prominent Portland defense attorney Stephen Houze last week.
