It may have come a downpour but that did not deter hundreds of athletes, coaches, volunteers and spectators from showing up to support the Area 10 Special Olympic Day held at the Bryant High School football stadium April 20.
According to Ann Hudson, Area 10 director, this isn't the first time it has rained, but they are accustomed to being flexible.
"It likes to rain on our parade, but we are holding out. The athletes have stepped it up," Hudson said.
The Benton Police Department is requesting the help of the public to locate a 15-year-old boy that allegedly ran away from home 10 days ago.
Payton Stone is described as 5 feet 3 inches tall, 110 pounds with blue eyes and brown hair. He was last seen at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 21 leaving his home on foot.
Payton was last noticed wearing a white Holister â€śSo Calâ€ť shirt, kakhi shorts, purple and black color shoes, and a Black Sox baseball cap. Officers believe that Payton is traveling on foot.
The condition of a 34-year-old Conway man that was involved in a vehicle accident that split a utility pole in Benton early Sunday was not available for the media today, according to a representative of Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock.
The representative did confirm that Donald Obannon is a patient at the hospital, but due to HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) laws, no other information was available as of press time.
