Don't miss 7 News at Noon!

Good morning everyone!

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

An arrest is made in connection with the missing UL Lafayette student, Mickey Shunick.  We'll have that story as Lafayette Police prepare to hold a news conference at 1 p.m. on new information in the case.  We'll tell you what is known now and then we'll stream the news conference live at 1 p.m. on kplctv.com

Also today, thousands of veterans – many of whom face job concerns – get some special tech support from a technology superstar. It's the man behind Craigslist and for many of those veterans, his help couldn't have come at a better time.

Plus, see how one man's bucket list has turned into a special journey to all four corners of the country. It's the trip of a lifetime – all on a motorcycle – and all in the very limited amount of time he has left.

Ben tells me we are on target for a better chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms later this afternoon and into the early evening.  But what about the weekend?  Can we expect more rain?  Ben is working on his live, local forecast right now, so be sure to tune in at noon.  You can always see the latest radar view on kplctv.com HERE…or download the 7StormTeam weather app for your mobile phones.

We hope you join us either online or on air live at noon.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
