Police reveal missing student, 21, had been ‘going through rough time’ before she left her home at 3am on Boxing Day …

The search for a missing student last seen at 3am on Boxing Day when she walked out in a vest and shorts will continue today around Great Yarmouth’s pier and beach.

Sophie Smith, 21, from neighbouring Gorleston-on-Sea in Norfolk, was said to be ‘going through a rough time’ before she vanished two days ago.

A huge search operation was launched by the police after the student disappeared from the family home at around 3am wearing no coat despite the freezing conditions.

Sophie also left her mobile phone and purse at home before walking out into the cold. 

Her mother Lynn told Facebook followers last night: ‘Unfortunately we still have no news to tell. We have been overwhelmed by the Facebook campaign messages of help, love support thank each every one of u from the bottom of our hearts’.

3 cozy mysteries to help you through the holidays

MURDER FOR CHRISTMAS,” by Francis Duncan, Sourcebooks Landmark, 345 pages (f)

There is much to like about “Murder for Christmas,” Francis Duncan’s 1949 Mordecai Tremaine detective murder mystery. Readers get an old-fashioned whodunit wrapped with a snow-dusted English country manor house and a disparate gathering of suspicious guests for Christmas. There are hints of Agatha Christie’s long-running play “The Mousetrap” here, as everyone at a multi-day Christmas house party becomes a suspect when one of their number is found dead underneath the Christmas tree, dressed in a Father Christmas robe. The local constable, aided by Duncan’s amateur detective Mordecai Tremaine, must work quickly to uncover the killer before he or she strikes again.

The trouble with “Murder for Christmas,” really — more than the dated language — is the main man himself, Tremaine. A memorable literary detective should be highly distinctive — think of Sherlock Holmes’ observation skills and anti-social

Central New York child porn victim walks jury through abuse

Editor’s Note: This article on the rare testimony of a child pornography victim contains graphic descriptions. Its content may be upsetting to some readers.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Two little kids play in a bath tub. It appears to be an innocent scene, one familiar to many families.

Then a man’s voice can be heard from behind the video camera. He sounds playful and uses baby talk.

“You’re silly,” he tells the boy and girl, both around 5 or 6 years old.

Then he begins to direct: Stand up. Turn around. Bend over. No, I can’t see you like that. Move to the side. Lay down. Lay back all the way. Move your leg. Put your feet down.

The video plays from courtroom monitors obscured from the public’s view during trial at the James Hanley Federal Building today.

A juror holds her hand over her mouth. Others clutch their chests.

The girl in the video, now in her

Californians sped through flames to escape for a third time

VENTURA, Calif. (AP) — They ran for their lives by the thousands when devastating wildfires raced across a huge swath of brush-covered Southern California hillsides, and they survived — even if in many cases their homes didn’t.

Some lost everything. Others returned to find homes still standing but in danger a second time when flames that had seemed to spare them returned. Others told of driving through a wall of flames to safety.

Here are some of their stories:

___

Brian Bromberg and Wendy Frank had just saved their beloved horses from a raging wildfire for the second time when they experienced their own brush with death — for the third time.

The couple, who live in the mountainous artist colony of Ojai, had already escaped flames that had burned down neighbors’ homes and had gone back

A force for change: Coping with grief through activism and advocacy …


Every tragedy, big or small, leaves behind victims and loved ones whose lives are inalterably changed. In some cases, survivors find themselves driven to become activists or advocates, finding meaning in the tragedy by fighting whatever caused it.

There are many examples making headlines all over the country.

Chris Hurst was an evening news anchor at WDBJ in Roanoke, Virginia, when his girlfriend, Alison Parker, a reporter, and her cameraman, Adam Ward, were shot and killed during a live interview one morning in August 2015.

Eventually, Hurst left his spot at the anchor desk, inspired to run for office and address some of the issues that led to Parker’s death — though he stresses he’s not a single-issue candidate, and gun control wasn’t a focus during his campaign.

On Tuesday, Hurst
