SPOKANE, Wash. -

Update: 8-year-old Arianna Harris has been found safe and been reunited with her parents Tuesday evening. Harris was reported missing after she reportedly got on the wrong bus around 4 p.m.

Kevin Morrison with Spokane Public Schools told KHQ that the new student tracking app, Z-Pass, played an important role in finding the missing girl quickly. The district just implemented the app on May 1, and it helps track students as they get on and off buses.

The Oregonian reports that the Clatsop County sheriff's office accused Marlin Lee Larson of several crimes after the boater told investigators he couldn't see where he was driving because the dash of his boat was blocking his view when he was sitting down.

    Even without El Nino last year, Earth keeps on warming

    Thursday, January 18 2018 12:05 PM EST2018-01-18 17:05:05 GMT

    WASHINGTON - Scientists say last year wasn't quite as hot as 2016's record-shattering mark, but it ranked either second or third, depending on who was counting. Either way, scientists say it showed a clear signal of man-made global warming because it was the hottest year they've seen without an El Nino boosting temperatures naturally.
