Good afternoon. This is Cynthia Arceneaux from the KPLC newsroom. The saga continues in the Assumption Parish Community where that sinkhole has pretty much taken over the lives of the residents there. Officials now say explosive concentrations of gas have been found in the soil underneath two homes and a shed in the Bayou Corne community near the large sinkhole.
Authorities are searching for two young boys they believe were kidnapped by their father from their maternal grandparents' Florida home after their grandmother was tied up... It's an amber alert search reaching all the way to Louisiana. Officials in the Tampa area last night asked for the public's help in locating the boys-- 4 year old Cole Hakken and 2 year old Chase Hakken. They said the children could be in a black 2006 GMC pickup owned by their father... We'll have those stories, along with Wade Hampton's chilly forecast. Break out the blankets tonight for another cold snap! We'll see you today on Live At Five and 7news At Six.
