   The recent spate of adults trying to lure children into their cars apparently isn't limited just to the Missouri side of the St. Louis metro area.  Police in Troy, Illinois are looking for a man who approached a nine-year-old girl late Sunday afternoon.  
   Police say about 4:30 p.m. the 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 declined, the man reportedly ordered her to "just get in the van."  The girl refused and made it 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.  
   Anyone who may have witnessed the encounter or who has other information is asked to call Troy, IL Police at 618-667-6731.

   Sixth-grader Chloe Stirling will soon be back in the cupcake business.

   Officials in Madison County, Illinois, had ordered the 11 year old to stop baking cupcakes for sale, because the kitchen in her home didn't meet health department standards.

   The Triad Middle schooler and her parents told their story on the "Rachael Ray Show" that aired Thursday.  And a local plumbing company is upgrading the family kitchen thanks to donations of money and equipment.

   Chloe says she wants to use the money from her "Hey Cupcake!" business to someday buy a car.
