Missouri Tigers head to the Small Dance

Monday, 17 March 2014 10:31 Published in Local News
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - For the first time in six years, the Missouri Tigers are left out of the NCAA tournament. 
 
As expected, the Tigers failed to earn a spot in the field of 68 when the brackets were announced Sunday. Instead, Missouri (22-11) earned a No. 2 seed in the National Invitational Tournament and will play Southern Conference champion Davidson (20-12) at 8 p.m. Tuesday at Mizzou Arena.
 
Missouri coach Frank Haith told the Columbia Tribune that his team is excited to play in the NIT, even though the goal is to make the NCAA tournament every year.
 
Missouri was ranked in the top 25 early this season, but a 9-9 record in the Southeastern Conference doomed the chance for an NCAA berth. Just three SEC teams made the tournament field.

Child abduction attempts continue to rise

Monday, 17 March 2014 09:33 Published in Local News
Police in St. Charles County are investigating a possible third child abduction attempt in the past week, while police in Troy, Illinois are handling a reported attempt in that town. 
 
The most recent incidents were reported on Sunday.  The first occurring shortly before 10 o'clock in the morning in West Alton.  Police say a black man driving a red SUV tried to lure a 6 year old girl into his car near St. Charles Street and Highway 94. The girl ran to a nearby church where a Sunday school teacher called police.
 
In Troy, Illinois Sunday afternoon police say a nine-year-old girl was walking home from the Dollar General Store along Riggin Road when a man in a black panel van asked if she "needed a ride."  When she said no, the man reportedly ordered her to "just get in the van."  The girl refused and ran home safely.  
 
Police are now looking for an older black man who was wearing a black T-shirt and a skullcap, and driving a black van with no windows on the rear or passenger side door.  
 
Last week, two other incidents were reported in St. Charles County -- one Tuesday in O'Fallon, the other Thursday in Lake St. Louis. In both of those instances, the children described the suspect as being a white male wearing a red ball cap. 
 
Anyone with information about any of these incidents is asked to call police or Crimestoppers.
