Tuesday Afternoon Headlines

This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC Newsroom. 

Here are some of the stories we're working on for Live at Five and 7 News at Six.

It's a desperate search in Lafayette for the 22-year-old ULL student who's been missing since early Saturday morning. Mickey Shunick was last seen riding her bike home. What could've happened to the college student? Hundreds have joined the search. 

And now that the voucher scholarship program is officially off and running, find out which private schools in the lake area will be accepting students. We talked with one private school who's opening its doors to the children who want to transfer from schools with failing grades.

And tonight at six in our "Forever Family" series, we'll highlight another child in foster care looking for an adoptive family.

A few showers developed again this afternoon and they will likely linger into the early evening; but they will be over by midnight. Temperatures will struggle to drop out of the 70s tonight with lows in the upper 60s by morning north of I-10; elsewhere lows will be in the low 70s.

Coming up tonight on 7 News at Six Sports, we'll hear from legendary head coach Max Caldarera, as he gets set to retire from Westlake Rams Football. We'll also look ahead to McNeese State and LSU baseball conference tournament openers. Plus, a former Saint is quite irate about Bounty-Gate.

We'll see you then.
