Good morning everyone! Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon

The search continues today for a missing U-L-L student.  Michaela "Mickey" Shunick was last seen Saturday when she left a friend's house in Lafayette.  Now there's word that a private donor is offering a 10-thousand dollar reward for information on Mickey's whereabouts.

Also today, it's about that time when kids will be out of school and ready for some fun – but are you breaking your budget to fund all of that fun?  We'll show you how to rein in the spending by being up-front with your children about money matters. 

Plus, if you're in the process of spring cleaning, you may be searching for ways to spruce up your home.  Décor plays a major role and can cost a pretty penny, but we'll show you how you can get that million dollar look – without million dollar renovations.

Speaking of money, if you like to find bargains online, you need to be aware of possible dangers.  You can find good advice on our 7 On Your Side Page. 

Ben tells me we can expect the temperatures to rise into the nineties again today.  There is a chance - a slim one - of some isolated showers.   Ben is busy putting together his full, up-to-the-minute, local forecast and he'll let us know if there's any chance of rain as we head closer to the weekend. 

Remember you can join us live on kplctv.com and on KPLC every weekday at noon. 

We'll see you in just a bit, and have a great day everyone!
