Detective Frank Fahrney of the Yreka Police Department said the sightings were reported this week, shortly after a psychic in Idaho reported the missing boy might be found there.
Fahrney said the Idaho psychic called a tip line in Sacramento, Calif., and his information was passed along to the Yreka police.
The local police then passed out flyers with a photo of the boy, and in the days that followed they received two tips independently from people in the area.
A boy resembling Kyron was reportedly spotted at a Motel 6 in Yreka, and at a nearby Walmart with "an older man." Photos of the boy from the Walmart security cameras will be shown to Kyron's parents for identification.
