   The search for a missing a 7 year old Effingham County, Illinois girl will continue overnight.  

   Authorities and hundreds of volunteers have been looking for Willow Long since she disappeared from her Watson, Illinois home on Sunday.  The Effingham County Sheriff's Department has sent the volunteers home for the night so that an Illinois State Police Flare Plane, which detects heat, won't pick up false readings during the overnight search.  

   Willow is about four-feet tall and weighs just 46 pounds. She has shoulder-length red hair and was wearing a long purple t-shirt as a nightgown. Willow's mother says she checked on the kids Sunday morning before taking a nap. When she woke up, Willow was gone.

   The Effingham County Sheriff's Department is coordinating the search and investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities at 217-342-2101.

Illinois lawmakers are criticizing the cost of renovations at the state capitol. The price tag for the upgrades in Springfield are approaching $50-million. The Chicago Sun Times reports the cost includes $80-thousand sculptures and chandeliers and $670-thousand copper-plated wooden doors. Democrats and Republicans alike are now questioning the bidding process and Republican Representative Jim Durkin says, "I'm embarrassed to say that this went on without anyone's knowledge that I'm aware of. And we have some egg on our face." The renovation is being funded by construction bonds that were part of a $31-billion capital construction plan approved by the Legislature.
