Good morning!

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

The incredible story of three missing women found in a house in Cleveland continues to unfold. Now police officials there are saying a six year old found in the house with the women is the daughter of one of them. Officials say three brothers - ages 50 to 54 - are in custody. Look for more on this story at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Locally, the Combined Anti-Drug Task Force conducts an undercover operation that's resulted in the arrest of four suspects and the recovery of more than 50 pounds of what's being described as high grade marijuana.

You've heard of the car Lemon Law? Well how about the "Puppy Lemon Law?" We'll tell you about a new move in Illinois to protect pet owners from getting stuck with a sick dog.

Plus, a Texas grandmother's secret to a long life – bacon! Wow, wouldn't this be gold if it were true?!! At 105, this lady received a very special visit from the Oscar Mayer wiener mobile.  Check it out at noon.

In weather, Ben tells me morning clouds will give way to sunshine and afternoon highs up to the mid 80's. He says there's a chance some fog could develop overnight depending on the winds. What about conditions on Wednesday and the rest of the week? Tune in at noon, for Ben's live, local forecast for all the answers. 

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great day!
