Good morning!

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

The search is on for a missing 77-year-old man in Sugartown. Look for an update at noon, and you can read more HERE.

The VA bill is set to be signed by President Obama today.

A warning for those seeking to get a tattoo. The FDA is reporting that not all tattoo ink is safe. Last month, one company recalled inks in in-home tattoo kits, after testing confirmed bacterial contamination in unopened bottles.

The industrial expansion headed our way is expected to touch just about every part of southwest Louisiana, including schools. KPLC's Lee Peck is working on a special report for this evening, but is providing a preview for us at noon.

Also today, they work hard to keep us safe. Now, a Michigan company is working to keep police dogs safe by making bullet-proof vests for four-legged officers.

Plus, two brothers who hadn't seen each other since the 1940s finally reunite. At noon, see how they are trying to make up for lost time.

Ben tells me to look for our afternoon heat index values topping out in the 100-103 range. The weekend is looming, so what can we expect from the weather? Tune in at noon for Ben's live, local forecast for the answer. You can also check out the latest weather conditions HERE.

Remember, if you're away from the TV at noon you can always tune in to to watch us online and your mobile device.

Have a great day everyone!
