Officials are investigating the disappearance of a young man in a stolen plane.

The flight instructor of California, continues to baffle investigators after he stole a plane and disappeared over the Pacific Ocean.

Pilot William McAdams was last seen at an airport in Palo Alto. Surveillance video showed the 24-year-old man around 1:30 a.m. before he stole his employer’s Cessna G1000 Skyhawk.

A weak radar blip registered about 70 miles off the coast of California, but it was not strong enough to identify a location.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said that it is possible that the distress call was unintentionally activated or it could have been triggered when the plane crashed into the sea.

McAdams did not leave a note and he did not tell anyone about his plans before he flew off with the aircraft.

Police have searched his social networking accounts, cellphone records and bank accounts for any sign of activity, but so far, they came up with nothing.

McAdams had been in trouble with the law a few weeks before his disappearance. He was arrested in Florida, on felony charges. He pleaded not guilty to aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment and misdemeanor battery.

His worried family is begging for help to bring him back home safely.

His sister Bridgette McAdams, wrote on Facebook: “My brother is an awesome, successful young man, and a great pilot. I would do anything to have him back home.”

An 8-year-old girl was excited when her application for a job at a supermarket was approved.

The primary school girl of Scotland, who suffers from Asperger syndrome, was given a “job” in Aldi, after she impressed the manager of the store with an enthusiastic letter.

8-year-old Carina Brooks of Glasgow, would often accompany her mother to the supermarket and she loved to tidy up the shelves.

One day, after watching the girl make the shelves in order during a shopping trip with her mother Linda, store manager Oliver Tingey joked and told the child that she should apply for a job at the store.

Carina took the suggestion literally. She went home and wrote a formal request letter, which she delivered after school on Friday.

Writing in pencil, Carina wrote that she wants a job tidying up the shop, and when she gets older, she wants to work at the cash register.

Tingey was so impressed by the child’s determination that he handed her a company shirt and allowed her to keep the shelves in order in exchange for sweets.

He also told Carina that he will keep her application on file until she was 16 years old.

Carina and her 11-year-old brother Carrick, both have Asperger syndrome, a form of autism which means they struggle with social interaction and tend to take things literally.

Their 34-year-old mother is the full-time caregiver for both children and she is very proud of her kids.

Woman awarded $83 million after collection agency sued her for $1,000 she never owed

Maria Guadalupe Mejia 
By: Tanya Malhotra

A collection agency learned the hard way not to harass innocent people.

51-year-old Maria Guadalupe Mejia won her lawsuit against a collection agency that would not stop harassing her over money she never owed.

Mejia of Missouri, was awarded a whopping $83 million after the collection agency sued her for a $1,000.

The company, Portfolio Recovery Associates LLC, was found guilty by a Kansas City jury of malicious prosecution after trying to collect the debt from Mejia. The debt actually belonged to a man with a similar name.

The company was fined $250,000 for violating the Fair Debt and Collection Practices Act and $82,990,000 in punitive damages for malicious prosecution.

Mejia said that although she knew she did not owe the company money, she and her family were absolutely terrified when she was served the lawsuit.

The woman claimed that the collection agency pursued her over the debt for 15 months after she first received the notification of the lawsuit.

Portfolio Recovery spokesman Michael McKeon denied her claim and said the company dropped the case as soon as it realized that Mejia wasn't the debt owner.

The company will appeal. “This outlandish verdict defies all common sense,” the company said.
