BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan (AP) - Kyrgyzstan's emergencies minister says the bodies of two American crew members have been found after a U.S. military refueling plane crashed in rugged mountains, while the search for the third crew member continues.

The minister told The Associated Press that Kyrgyz search teams found the two fragmented bodies this morning. They have not yet been identified.

The KC-135 crashed on yesterday about 100 miles west of the air base that the U.S. operates in the Central Asian nation to support military operations in Afghanistan.

Officials at the U.S. Transit Center at Manas have released no information yet on the cause of the crash.

Authorities say military officials from Manas were working with Kyrgyz rescuers to search for the third crewman and the flight recorders.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Authorities say no criminal charges will be filed against the St. Louis woman whose 5-year-old son was found wandering alone late at night with his dog at a grocery store.

Workers at a Schnucks grocery store in south St. Louis found the boy about 11:15 p.m. Thursday. He said his name was Noah, but he didn't know his last name or where he lived. Workers took him in, gave the boy and the dog food, and called police.

Several hours later, on Friday morning, police located the child's mother. She told authorities she was sleeping and didn't know the boy had wandered off.

Police say there will be strict oversight to ensure that the mother and child get help toward what police call a "healthy living environment."

DONIPHAN, Mo. (AP) — Officials with ExxonMobil have repaired an oil pipeline in southeast Missouri, where a leak was discovered earlier this week.

A resident near Doniphan, Mo., found oil leaking in his yard Tuesday. All told, about one barrel — roughly 42 gallons of crude oil — leaked from the Pegasus pipeline. The cause remains under investigation.

The repair was completed Friday.

The pipeline running from Illinois to Texas already was out of service after a much larger breach in Arkansas in March, but that doesn't mean there wasn't oil inside.

About 5,000 barrels of oil spilled in March. The cause of that leak also is being investigated.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Gov. Jay Nixon's administration says a Missouri House computer was used in an effort to access a secure website with the list of people who have a concealed weapons permit.

The Office of Administration filed an open records request to determine who did it. Spokeswoman Misti Preston said Friday the user tried unsuccessfully to view the list 23 times.

She says the website was accessed using log-in information that state officials previously provided to a federal agent. That agent told a Senate committee this week he wanted the list of permit holders for an investigation into Social Security fraud.

Preston says the log-in information was made public during the Senate's investigation but the data was removed from the website in March.

Missouri House officials were not immediately available for comment.
