5 things you need to know for Tuesday, Feb. 13


INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Good morning. Here are five things you need to know today:

1) Today marks one year since Abby Williams and Libby German disappeared on a trail near Delphi. Police have investigated more than 30,000 leads in the case and investigators have looked into more than 1,000 persons of interest. Seven to 10 detectives are still dedicated to the case full-time. That number will, at least for a while, jump to 20-25 because of the anniversary, the attention and new leads that are generated. You can send in your tip by calling (844) 459-5786 or emailing it to abbyandlibbytip@cacoshrf.com. The reward now is in excess of $225,000. There will be a candlelight vigil at 6:30 p.m. at the Delphi United Methodist Church on US-421. It's open to the public.

2) You may be eligible for a $49 heart scan through Check Up 13 and St. Vincent. The scans are available at multiple locations around central Indiana. Patients must be 40 or older and not have had a scan within the last 5 years to register. You can register online through our website until midnight tonight, or call (1-866) 824-3251 starting at 8 a.m.

3) Frank Reich will hold his first press conference as the Colts' head coach today at 3 p.m. Bob Kravitz says Reich may not have been the Colts' first choice, but he could end up being the right choice.

4) Former First Lady Michelle Obama speaks at Bankers Life Fieldhouse tonight at 7 p.m. IPS, Indiana Black Expo and the Coca-Cola Bottling Company pitched in to get tickets for 200 IPS students. The event is sponsored by the Women's Fund of Central Indiana.

5) Are you ready for a warmer pattern? Chuck Lofton says it's coming and it begins later this afternoon. Under a sky mixed with sun and clouds, our highs leap into the mid-40s. The trade-off with the mid-week warm-up will be overcast, foggy and, at times, damp conditions. In fact, if you're still looking for a Valentine's Day gift, an umbrella may be a great option. Tomorrow will be gray with areas of dense fog, drizzle and steadier showers developing into the evening. Temperatures slowly climb into the 50s toward sunset and a steady south-southwest keeps them there into Thursday morning.
