Making Headlines:

Manhunt continues: Investigators are now searching for a second suspect involved in Tuesday's Brussels subway attack and is believed to be alive. The man was spotted on surveillance cameras in the Brussels metro on Tuesday carrying a large bag.

Fatal crash: Authorities are investigating after a man was killed in a pickup truck versus semi crash. The accident happened on US 62 near the Caldwel-Lyon county line when 49-year-old Michael Lefan, of Eddyville, Ky., crossed the center line and drove into the path of an oncoming semi.

Storm spotter:  If you've ever wanted to be a trained storm spotter for the National Weather Service, you have a chance in Du Quoin today. Things you will learn include: how to identify potential severe weather features and what information the NWS needs you to report and how to report it.

Under investigation: Two pieces of debris recently discovered along the coast of Mozambique are "highly likely" to have come from missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Australian and Malaysian officials said Thursday.
