Happy Tuesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*Welsh Police arrest four people in connection with a string of vehicle burglaries over the past two days.  We'll tell you how many vehicles were broken into and what authorities are telling people to do if they believe they were also victimized.

*Theories continue to swirl about what happened to missing Malaysian Flight 370.  This morning we will take a look at what we actually know.

*An East Texas family is putting out a plea for help in finding their missing daughter.  19-year-old Alicia Benefield of Wascom has not been seen or heard from since Friday.  We'll tell you what's being done to locate the teen.

*As part of the McNeese Banners Series, Academy Award winner "12 Years a Slave" will be shown for free in Bulber Auditorium.  We'll have the details of the free screening and the lecture that will follow it highlighting antebellum Louisiana.

*A dog that was dragged behind a pickup truck in Alabama is recovering after authorities say they received several calls and photos about the incident.  Hear what those that called in to report the terrible sight actually saw.

Make it a Sunrise day!
