Police still searching for Colorado girl

GREELEY, Colo. —Authorities are canvassing neighborhoods and talking to motorists in Greeley, Colo., as the search for a missing 12-year-old girl continues.

Kayleah Wilson was last seen the afternoon of March 28 when she left home to walk to a friend's birthday party about a mile away, across a busy highway.

On Sunday, one week after she disappeared, police planned to stop cars in the area and ask drivers if they noticed anything a week before.

Police Sgt. Joe Tymkowych said authorities are also searching two residential areas near the girl's home, including one that wouldn't have been on her way to the birthday party.

A search of some ponds and a wooded, undeveloped area Saturday turned up no sign of Kayleah, a sixth-grader.

Van Gogh painting reproduced in cereal

SMITHFIELD, Utah — High school students in northern Utah have completed a 6,400-square-foot replica of Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night" out of breakfast cereal.

Sky View High School teacher Doyle Geddes led more than 150 students on the project, which used two tons of colorful Malt-O-Meal spread across the gymnasium floor.

The project took about a week and was completed Saturday. Crews spread a plastic sheet on the floor, then created a grid to outline the painting's famous design. Each space was assigned a color to correspond with the painting and filled with cereal.

Geddes says he wanted to find a way to better connect students with art.

The replica was taken apart later Saturday. The cereal was given to a farmer to feed pigs.
