News to know for your Tuesday morning
SPOKANE, Wash. — Happy Tuesday! Wondering what to wear today? You’ll need light layers again, just like yesterday. We’re in for more clouds and a high of 68. Here are the headlines you need to know this morning:
Found hundreds of miles from home
The Jerome, Idaho girl who authorities issued an AMBER Alert for yesterday has just been found hundreds of miles from home in Surprise, Arizona. Police there say 17-year-old Sandra Rios-Chavez was found overnight and is waiting to be reunited with her family. Investigators said Monday they believed she was kidnapped Sunday night from a Wendy’s in Jerome by 18-year-old Miguel Rodriguez-Perez. Police said this morning Rodriguez-Perez is now in custody. Officers did not give anymore details as to how the two were found.
For the second time within a week, a floatplane has crashed near Ketchikan, Alaska. Two people, a pilot and passenger who were the only two aboard, died last night when their plane went down for unknown reasons. The plane was operated by the same regional airline, Taquan Air, as one of the floatplanes involved in last week’s deadly crash in the same region which killed six people.
Local activists to rally to StopTheBans
This evening there will be a ‘StopTheBans Rally for Reproductive Freedom’ in downtown Spokane.
