The missing UK teen, Laura Stainforth that was feared to have fled the country with a 49-year-old man she met on the internet, has been found 'safe and well' in Lille, France.
Her disappearance launched an international manhunt, with the police praising the media's ability to help report possible sightings of the teen, one of which led directly to her discovery, and the arrest of 49-year-old Robert Williams.
Authorities are now working to get Laura back to the UK as quickly as possible, as well as extraditing Williams to face charges back in Britain.The missing UK teen, Laura Stainforth that was feared to have fled the country with a... more

HARDIN - Relatives of the missing Little Light family pleaded Tuesday for help in finding the couple and their 3-month-old son.
Teddy Little Light, his wife, Juliet Toineeta Little Light, and their son, Wyatt, have not been seen since before Christmas.
Concerned family members contacted the Big Horn County Sheriff's Office and Bureau of Indian Affairs Law Enforcement, which are leading the search for the family.
On Monday evening, investigators, following an anonymous tip, found the family's 1995 Chevy pickup truck near Fort Smith.
"We're pleading with the general public," family member Cedric Black Eagle said. "If they know anything or have seen them, call."
Black Eagle, who is related to both Toineeta and the Little Light family, was among about 40 relatives and friends who gathered for a press conference Tuesday at the Big Horn County Courthouse in Hardin.
April Toineeta, Juliet's aunt, sent a message to the couple.
"To Juliet and Teddy, contact any one of us to let us know you're OK, and if there is anything wrong, we can work through this," she said.HARDIN - Relatives of the missing Little Light family pleaded Tuesday for help in... more
Adam Herrman has not been seen since 1999, when he was around 11 or 12 years old. At the time, he was living in a mobile home park in Kansas with his adoptive parents. He is reported to have frequently run away, leading his parents to believe he was with his biological parents or homeless. He was just reported missing this week.Adam Herrman has not been seen since 1999, when he was around 11 or 12 years old. At... more
Australian men's mag Ralph was planning to give away inflatable breasts as a free gift with it's January issue (uhm... ok...) so put in a massive order for 130,000. Unfortunately the shipment has been lost. Apparently the cargo, worth about $200,000, left Beijing in a container that turned up empty when the ship pulled into Sydney harbor about two weeks later.
Ralph's editor is stumped (and making me LOL):
"Unless Somali pirates have stolen them its difficult to explain where they are," Pintado said. "If anyone finds any washed up on a beach, please let us know."Australian men's mag Ralph was planning to give away inflatable breasts as a free... more
A missing 17-year-old girl was found hiding in a closet at a male teacher's home near Chicago after he told police he didn't know where she was — prompting officers to arrest him on a charge he lied to them.
Eric Wood, 24, who teaches at Thomas Jefferson Middle School in Waukegan, Ill., was charged only with obstructing justice in the bizarre case surrounding the disappearance of the girl.
The teen's family filed a missing-person report on Nov. 8.
The following day, Lake County Sheriff's deputies found the girl at Wood's Beach Park house after Wood allowed them in to search for her. He initially told authorities that he knew nothing about the girl's whereabouts.
The girl's brother said she and Wood have been in regular contact since they met at a Milwaukee car show in July, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. The teen is a student at Zion-Benton High School, and her brother said he called police last month in an effort to stop her get-togethers with Wood.
Wood was "dropping off his 17-year-old sister at home after hours," the police report said.
The high school student and Wood told police and their families that they were just friends, according to the paper.

Arizona police are searching for a missing Avondale woman and her 3-year-old daughter, who allegedly were kidnapped from their home on or around Friday.
Liliana Beatrice Iboa, 20, and Karen Bianay Cervantes were reported missing by Iboa's husband, Benito Cervantes Mena, shortly before 10 p.m. on Friday night.
Mena told police he had been out of town when he received a call Friday morning from an unidentified male suspect claiming he had his wife and daughter. The caller demanded a ransom, according to police.
When Mena got home he found his home had been broken into and burglarized. He told police he did not report the incident right away because he feared his family would be harmed.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Avondale Police Department at 623-333-7001.

Though her son, Julian King, has been missing since his relatives were found shot to death in their home Friday morning, his mother still believes her only child is alive.
“I have to believe that he’s OK,” said Hudson, 31. “I have that hope that he’s OK, I have that faith that he’s OK.”
“I don’t care who you are, just let my baby go,” said Hudson, speaking at the Pleasant Gift Missionary Baptist Church on the South Side. “Please, I just want my son.”
One theory, sources said Saturday, is that the attack began at the front door when one of the victims answered the door and was shot. The second victim was then also shot.
Balfour, 27, was taken into custody hours after the bodies were found. He was identified as a suspect by police in an alert issued for the missing Julian King. Police said Julian could have been with Balfour, who was considered armed and dangerous.
The boy’s mother said Julian is smart, sensitive and adored his grandmother, who cared for him while his mom worked.
“He’s not your typical 7-year-old,” Julia Hudson said. “He doesn’t want to go outside, he doesn’t want to play. He’d rather stay at home and read a book or do some schoolwork or be with his relatives. That’s all Julian wants.”
She urged whoever has the boy to simply release him, saying she is only concerned about finding her son.
“I know he’s out there,” she said. “Just let him go. Put him on the side of the street. He’ll sit there.”
Asked who might have taken her son, she replied: “I don’t know. I don’t care. I just want him back.”
The deaths of her mother and brother — and the disappearance of her son — have devastated her close-knit family, she said.
“I think we’re still in a state of shock. It hurts. I don’t know what else to do but pray,” Julia Hudson said.

Seven Puget Sound killer whales are missing and feared dead in what could be the biggest decline among the sound's orcas in nearly a decade, say scientists who carefully track the endangered animals.
"This is a disaster," Ken Balcomb, a senior scientist at the Center for Whale Research on San Juan Island, said Friday. "The population drop is worse than the stock market."
While the official census won't be completed until December, the number of live "southern resident" orcas now stands at 83.
Among those missing since last year's count are the nearly century-old leader of one of the three southern resident pods, and two young females who recently bore calves.
The loss of the seven whales, Balcomb said, would be the biggest decline among the Puget Sound orcas since 1999, when the center also tracked a decline of seven whales.

A hiker in a rugged part of eastern California found a pilot's license and other items that appear to belong to Steve Fossett, the adventurer who vanished on a solo flight in a borrowed plane more than a year ago, authorities said Wednesday.
The information on the pilot license _ including Fossett's name, address, date of birth and certificate number _ was sent in a photograph to the Federal Aviation Administration, and all matched the agency's records, spokesman Ian Gregor said.
"We're trying to determine the authenticity of the document," Gregor said.
The hiker, Preston Morrow, said he found an FAA identity card, a pilot's license, a third ID and $1,005 in cash tangled in a bush off a trail just west of the town of Mammoth Lakes on Monday. He said he turned the items over to local police Wednesday after unsuccessful attempts to contact Fossett's family.
Mammoth Lakes police investigator Crystal Schafer confirmed that the department had the items, including the ones bearing Fossett's name.
Search teams led by the Madera County Sheriff's Department have been sent to the scene, and an air and ground effort was expected to be under way soon, said sheriff's spokeswoman Erica Stuart.
Morrow said he found no sign of a plane or any human remains.
