By Dulce Hernandez

 

A 15-year-old Wylie student has been reported missing in Indianapolis. Stephen Kenneth Colbert was visiting the city with the organization Music for All, according to Indianapolis police.

 

Colbert was reported missing on Friday morning. He was last seen around 7 p.m. Thursday at Clowes Memorial Hall on the campus of Butler University on Thursday.

The Wylie Independent School District said Colbert never checked after a band concert and a welcome event Thursday night. The students were in town for a band competition and were scheduled to come back to Wylie on Sunday, said the Wylie ISD.

 

Wylie ISD has notified Colbert’s parents who are asking the public to pray for their son’s safe return.

 

Friday night, Erick Colbert was told his son’s backpack, medication and wallet were found at his hotel.

“It’s hard, as more and more time goes by, to maintain, but, but I am … the kids we told them, ‘Hey we’re gonna’ find him,” said Colbert, father of three.

 

Stephen is the oldest, and has food allergies. That’s one concern the father is coping with, while wondering if that played a role in his disappearance.

 

“Was there some accidental ingestion of a food he can’t eat where he got nauseous and headed into a room so he could have some privacy and maybe he collapsed or something?” Colbert said.

 

Administrators and Colbert’s mother are in Indianapolis, Erick will join them on Saturday. On Friday night, his high school community had a prayer service behind the high school.

 

The event sponsor and the Butler University police along with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said they are working hard to make sure Colbert makes it home safe. The Wylie Police Department is also working with Indianapolis police who is handling the investigation.

 

The IMPD is asking people to call their police non-emergency number at 317-327-3811 if they have seen Colbert. The freshman band student is described as a black male, 5 foot 8 inches tall and weighs 120 pounds. He was wearing a black jacket, orange shirt, and brown khaki pants.

Wylie sent their top administrators to join the search that they are optimistic will end well.

Another Step Forward In The Fight Against Human Trafficking

In September 2012 at the Clinton Global Initiative, President Obama made a commitment to step up our fight against the evils of human trafficking and pledged to “do even more to help victims recover and rebuild their lives.”

 

Today, as part of the Administration’s ongoing efforts to carry out that pledge, and in recognition of National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, the White House released the first-ever Federal Strategic Action Plan on Services for Victims of Human Trafficking in the United States.

 

The plan lays out a five-year path for increased coordination, collaboration, and capacity across the federal government and in partnership with other governmental and nongovernmental entities at all levels.  It describes the steps that federal agencies will take to ensure that all victims of human trafficking in the United States are identified and have access to the services they need to recover and to rebuild their lives.

 

This includes a victim services network that is comprehensive, trauma-informed, and responsive to the needs of all victims, regardless of the type of trafficking they endured, and regardless of race, color, national origin, disability, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or immigration status.

 

More than 15 federal agencies (led by the Departments of Justice, Health and Human Services, and Homeland Security) worked with stakeholders and participated in listening sessions across the country to develop this plan, as well as solicited feedback through a 45-day public comment period. Our team also worked with survivors to ensure that their specialized knowledge of human trafficking was included in the implementation of this strategy.

 

I had the pleasure of announcing the plan’s release this morning at a meeting with an extraordinary group of individuals who reflect the diversity and depth of experiences and backgrounds of human trafficking survivors from across the United States, as well as more than 40 representatives from federal agencies engaged in the Administration’s anti-human trafficking efforts.

 

I thanked them for all their input and the work they had done putting together the plan, and emphasized that only by continuing to work together can we be truly successful in our ongoing efforts to do more to help the victims of human trafficking.

 

As President Obama concluded that day while speaking at the Clinton Global Initiative, directly addressing the victims of human trafficking:

…we see you.  We hear you. We insist on your dignity.  And we share your belief that if just given the chance, you will forge a life equal to your talents and worthy of your dreams.

At the White House, we’re always looking for new ways to engage with citizens online – and 2013 was no exception. As 2013 comes to an end, it’s time to look back at some of ourfavorite online moments of the past year.

 

This year, President Obama answered your questions about housing on Zillow.com, and connected directly with Americans from around the country during a Fireside Hangout on Google+after his State of the Union Address. In her first ever Twitter Q&A, the First Lady answered questions about Let’s Move! and healthy living in 140 characters.

 

In 2013, the White House joined TumblrInstagram and started sharing six-second videos on Vine. It’s also been a big year on Twitter – with new official accounts for the First LadyDr. Bidenand many more White House officials to engage on issues including the economy, foreign policy and immigration reform. We continued to open the doors of the White House by inviting folks from all over to join our first-ever White House hackathon and Instagram meet up.

 

Take a look at some of our favorite online moments below or over on Storify. And stay tuned for opportunities to engage with President Obama and the White House in the New Year by following us on TwitterFacebookGoogle+Instagram and Tumblr.

Lights. Camera. Education!

 

Are you a student filmmaker? Know someone who is?

 

We want your help.

 

If you’re a student, we want you to make a short film — and have the chance to show it right here at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for the first-ever White House Student Film Festival. If you’re a parent or a friend, pass this on to a student you know.

 

The topic? Technology in classrooms. There’s huge power in what technology can do for education — from taking a course online, to collaborating with students from across the country (or the world!).

 

We’re looking for awesome student filmmakers to show the power of technology in classrooms in a short film.

 

If that sounds like you — or someone you know — go to WhiteHouse.gov/Film-Festival and find out how you can participate.

 

 

THE PRESIDENT HAS AN ASSIGNMENT FOR YOU

 

Our schools are more high-tech than ever. There are laptops in nearly every classroom. You can take an online course on Japanese — and then video chat with a kid from Japan. You can learn about geometry through an app on your iPad. So, what does it all mean?

 

We’re looking for videos that highlight the power of technology in schools.

January 1 marks not only the beginning of a New Year, but an exciting new day in health care as millions of Americans will now be able to access care, thanks to the coverage they found at the Health Insurance Marketplace. For many of the newly insured – people like Molly from Charlottesville, VA or Mark from Austin, TX – it will be the first time that they can enjoy the security that comes with health coverage.

 

For consumers whose Marketplace coverage begins on January 1, we’re doing everything we can to help ensure a smooth transition period.  If consumers have questions about their new private insurance coverage, they can contact their insurance company directly. Consumers can log into their account on HealthCare.gov to find their insurer’s customer service line or browse through a directory on HealthCare.gov.

 

Before you go to the doctor or pharmacy using your new insurance for the first time, check out this tip sheet, and make sure to:

 

  • Get your insurance card or a temporary card with your new plan’s information. If you don’t have your card yet, ask your insurance company to give you another way to confirm your coverage.
  • Make sure you know when your first premium payment is due and pay it by the due date;
  • Check to see which doctors and pharmacies are in your network.

 

And at your first visit:

  • Bring your insurance card with you to the doctor or pharmacy. If you don’t have a card, ask your doctor or pharmacy what other proof of insurance they may accept.
  • If you thought you enrolled in health coverage but aren’t showing up in the system, call your insurance company directly. If you don’t have your insurer’s contact information call the Marketplace Call Center (1-800-318-2596) and a trained representative can provide it to you.

$11k reward offered for information on Heather Elvis‘s disappearance

 

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Monday, Horry County Police and the Department of Natural Resources continue searching the area around Peachtree Landing in Socastee for 20-year-old Heather Elvis, who went missing last week, officials confirmed.

 

Heather Elvis’s family set up a Facebook page, and put out a poster offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the closure of the case and her location. On Monday, a family friend of the Elvis’s added $10,000 to the reward.

The CEU Center said Monday, December 23 the search is still going. People are searching today alongside law enforcement. They are focusing on several areas, including the water. This is not because they think she is there, but because they want to eliminate it as a possibility.

 

Major Crimes Detectives are investigating the disappearance of Elvis, Horry County Police spokesman Robert Kegler said.

 

They want everyone to be on the lookout for Heather, and any sign of her.

Heather Elvis’s car was found abandoned in a parking area in Socastee on Thursday, December 19. Terry Elvis identified the car, and said that it did not appear to have any damage.

 

One boat from the Department of National Resources was out on patrol on the Intracoastal Waterway searching for the missing person, said Sergeant Nate Hutson with DNR. Lt. Kegler confirmed that DNR was assisting them in their search.

 

According to Terry Elvis, Heather’s latest phone call was made at about 3 a.m. Wednesday, December 18. She stopped by her parents’ house Tuesday to pick up mail. She works at a restaurant, but did not show up or call in for her scheduled shift Friday, December 20, her father said.

 

Long time friend of the Elvis family Matt Stoddard said he could not believe Heather has gone this long without being seen or heard from.

 

“Just scared really worried,” added Stoddard.  “Everyone starts dreading the worst but all you can do is pray and hope that you find her and get the word out as quickly as you can.”

 

Stoddard had a message for anyone who might know where Heather is.

 

“If they’ve seen her since Tuesday then definitely get in touch with the family and call Horry County Police with any information that might be helpful because at this point anything we can get will help try to find her,” said Stoddard.

 

Anyone with information on her location or disappearance is asked to call the Horry County Police Department: (843) 915-5350 on Facebook here: http://on.fb.me/1hrsLNY, on Twitter: https://twitter.com/horrycountypd, or online: http://police.horrycounty.org/

Investigators do not know what type of vehicle Dominguez was traveling in or what direction he was heading, Holland said.

 

Anyone with information regarding the child’s whereabouts is asked to call 911.
