New tool for locating missing people in SWLA

Good Tuesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's ahead on today's Sunrise:

*When Amber Alerts are issued, every second counts.  Find out how newly installed technology on I-10 in Southwest Louisiana will soon make it easier for state police to get their message out.

*Authorities recover the body of a kidnapping victim in Northwest Louisiana.  Now, Robert Barthelemy, the Natchitoches police officer accused in the death of 25-year-old Tony Procell, faces a first degree murder charge.  The suspect's family is breaking their silence about the murder case.

*The U.S. government says there is undeniable evidence that chemical weapons were used in Syria, killing hundreds of people.  Are air strikes next from the U.S. military response?  We'll tell you what Secretary of State John Kerry is saying today.

*Today is Global Forgiveness Day!  We'll tell you how the day started and why people are asked to make their forgiveness public.

Make it a Sunrise day!
