Oklahoma Guardsman Accused Of Committing Fraud
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- An Oklahoma Army National Guard member who allegedly wore his military uniform as he went door-to-door asking for donations for wounded soldiers is accused of committing fraud. The National Guard said Thursday that 20-year-old Pfc. Nicholas Heskett has been AWOL for several months. Authorities say Heskett wore his military uniform to entice people to give him cash. Logan County prosecutors have filed two counts of obtaining money or property by false pretenses against Heskett. The crimes allegedly took place in Crescent, Okla., and southern Logan County and may also have occurred in Edmond and Oklahoma City. A man who identified himself as Heskett's father said Heskett was not at home and would not provide his name or his son's whereabouts. He said his son will have his day in court.

KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search for a Kingfisher teenager who disappeared after jumping into Uncle John Creek.
Police say 17-year-old Taylor Faine jumped into the creek Thursday and did not resurface. Kingfisher Fire Chief Randy Poindexter told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/10s2oB6 ) on Saturday that manmade dams have been built in hopes of finding Faine's body.
Authorities say Faine was swimming with friends in an area where no swimming signs are in place because of dangerous currents in the creek.
