No sign of felon being sought in Catawba County

 Hello and good morning! It's Christine Nelson in the WBTV newsroom. How are you?? As you're waking up I wanted to let you know WBTV News This Morning is live on the air now. Watch so you can get caught up on the news of the day. Here is a FIRST LOOK at what we're talking about:

ALERT: Convicted felon still on the run!

The search has been suspended overnight for convicted felon, Jeffrey Tucker. He's being sought in Catawba County. You may have seen the mobile alert we sent to your phone. Many residents in the area have been asked to stay indoors. Officials are trying to arrest him for possession of a firearm by a felon. WBTV's Ashton Pellom has been making call overnight. He's going to tell us the latest info in live reports.

Question: Should a judge let a burglary suspect out of jail so he can attend the funeral for the second suspect,who was shot and killed during the alleged crime? The two are brothers. We'll tell you what we learned overnight that leads us to believe the judge may not be honoring that request.

Travel on 485 in south Charlotte? Specifically between I-77 and Rea Road? We're monitoring the latest details from NCDOT that final lanes are opening starting today.

Too sexy for jury duty? We'll tell you the celebrity who was dismissed from his civic duty...officials say he would be too much of a "distraction."

As the morning progresses, we'll tell you about the stories developing and hitting the wires as it happens in the Alert Center.

Plus...traffic and weather updates every 7 minutes!

See you on air,

Christine
