Good afternoon! We hope your week is off to a great start.
Here are some stories for you to check out today: 1. The adorable Caldwell Zoo lion cubs are officially named now, thanks to the votes of many voters from around East Texas. There are four cubs, and one was named Doc in honor of the zoo's much-loved veterinarian who passed away recently. Check out the names picked out by East Texans for the other three cubs, and keep in mind that the best chance for viewing the cubs at Caldwell Zoo are 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., which is when the zoo says they have outdoor playtime.
2. Officials say 108 people are reported missing in a landslide in Washington State. "It's a soft 108," Pennington said. "We have not found anyone alive on this pile since Saturday." Authorities are working from the list, which was made from various sources who reported missing people. Groundwater saturation tied to heavy rainfall in the area over the past month is being blamed for the landslide, which authorities say is at least 45 yards wide.
3. DPS is offering a $5,000 reward for East Texas sex offender Eric Mosby. Mosby has ties to several East Texas cities, including San Augustine, Nacogdoches, and Tenaha, and has previously worked in the poultry industry. The 6'1", 250 pound man may be using the alias “Hambone.” He has multiple tattoos, including a bone on his neck; a tiger on his right shoulder; and a woman on his left shoulder. His criminal history includes sexual assault of a child, failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements, and aggravated assault. Mosby was convicted in 1997 for the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl.
