3 things to know from News Leader 9 - Wednesday, July 15: AL woman, kids missing; another hot day in the 90s

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – From the WTVM News Leader 9 web desk, here are three things to know to start your day:

  1. An emergency alert has been issued for a girl in Alabama. Law Enforcement officials say that Nora Grenier was last seen yesterday morning along with her five children and a nephew.
    They say that she will be traveling in a 2000 Chevy Venture minivan and that she may be en-route to Brownville Texas.
    Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Nora Grenier or any of the children, are urged contact the Foley Police Department at (251)-943-4431.
  2. And the man accused of killing Renee Eldridge is in custody. Gray claims that he did not kill Eldridge, and investigators say that Gray was a suspect early in the investigation. They also say it is not yet clear if Eldridge was sexually assaulted, and are unclear on a motive.
  3. And investigators say that a new scam is promising money to young adults. They are using their bank accounts to deposit checks and by the time they realize the check is bad the criminal is long gone with the money. Officials encourage everyone to keep their information secret and never give out your bank information.

WEATHER: Wednesday is going to be another hot one – high temperatures will be back in the mid-90s by the afternoon, with a 30 percent chance of rain for our area.
