PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The stepmother of an Oregon boy who vanished two years ago has asked a judge to hold off hearing a suit that says she knows the boy's location.

The lawsuit filed by Kyron Horman's biological mother, Desiree Young, asks a judge to order Terri Horman to return Kyron or, if he's dead, say where his remains are located. The lawsuit also seeks $10 million.

Terri Horman says in a brief filed late Tuesday that a criminal investigation is under way, and the civil suit should be stayed two years while it plays out.

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.
