BREAKING: Missing Franklin Co kids found unhurt

Thursday, 13 June 2013 06:53 Published in Local News

Missing Franklin County children 13-year-old Erica Linsey and 11-year-old Scotty Warner have been found unhurt. 

The two friends were last seen at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday playing outside near White Road south of St. Clair.  

Sheriff Gary Toelke says the area where the kids went missing in a very remote location close to the Meramec River. Just before 10:00am Thursday, Warner was found and led searchers to his 13-year-old neighbor. Erica Linsey was found hiding under porch. Searchers are trying to coax her out. Reportedly, she had fought with her sister the night before.

Earlier, Sheriff Gary Toelke told KTRS News there was no reason to believe the two were runaways. There was concern about the safety of the area due to mine shafts, caves, and the Meramec river. 

Initially, Toelke says there were initial indications the two used a cell phone to access the Internet just before midnight from the area where they were reported missing.

Fire has destroyed the LivRite Fitness Center in the 1000 block of Carlyle. Firefighters remain at the scene (6:45am).

The building is considered a complete loss. Fire crews are still dealing with a hot spot. Smoke can be seen coming through a portion of the roof. The fire call came in just after 11:00pm Wednesday night. When firefighters arrived, flames were already threw the roof. The business was closed.   No one was hurt.

Fire officials say the cause of the fire is still under investigation. But officials say a janitor has reported hearing popping sounds shortly before the fire broke out, so an electrical fire is suspected. No one was injured in that blaze.

Thursday, 06 June 2013 18:45 Published in Local News

All Aboard! That will be a call St. Louisans hear once again at Union Station. Owners of the National Historic Landmark announcing plans Thursday to restore excursion train travel as part of the the renewal of Union Station. KTRS' Vicki Pimentel reports from downtown.

"Union Station was built in 1894 and has weathered good times and bad. Once the busiest railway station in the world, it hasn't housed trains in years. But the purchase last summer by Lodging Hospitality Management seem to signal a new era of commitment to this St. Louis treasure.

Bob O'Loughlin  heads up LHM and he's excited about the prospects. "We've had some conversations with the Rams about doing a program with them over to the Kansas City Chiefs preseason game to have fans go over there. We can do Cubs-Cards weekends, we can go to the wine country."

Excursion train travel is expected to be available this Fall. Vicki Pimentel KTRS News"
