The pregnant North Carolina woman was last seen by her daughter on the morning she was scheduled to have a c-section delivery. According to her daughter, Lauren Lusk, on Tuesday morning, her mother told Lusk to go fill up the car with gas before they set off for the 40 minutes to Charlotte for her delivery. However, when Lusk returned her mother was gone, the lights in the house were off, the door was unlocked and her mother’s car was also missing. The daughter went on to say that her mother’s makeup and purse were still in the house after she vanished, but her wallet and cellphone were gone.
A pregnant North Carolina woman vanished the morning she was supposed to deliver her baby, stumping worried family members who are frantically searching for her.
Carrie Bradshaw-Crowther, 49, disappeared at about 5 a.m. ET Tuesday morning from her Salisbury, North Carolina, home, an hour before a scheduled C-section, said her daughter, Lauren Lusk.

“When I got back, she was gone. The lights in the house were off, the door was unlocked,” Lusk said.
Bradshaw-Crowther’s car was also missing. Lusk called the hospital where she was supposed to deliver and police checked other local hospitals. She wasn’t at any of them.
Lusk said one call was made from Bradshaw-Crowther’s cellphone 20 minutes after she went missing, six blocks from the house. She was spotted at a gas station in Statesville, about 25 miles from Salisbury, and stayed in a hotel there the night she went missing, Lusk said.
Police said Crowther could be traveling in a champagne-colored 2001 Mazda MPV. The van has a Kansas tag number: QKP711.
“The longer she was gone … it was 6 and we were supposed to be at the hospital. That’s when I knew there was something to worry about,” Lusk said.
Police confirm that Crowther was last seen at a convenience store in Statesville. During a Channel 9 interview with Lusk on Friday, one of the investigators showed up at the home to get written statements.

A 15-year-old Michigan boy on Sunday completed a three-day, 57-mile walk across the state, carrying his younger brother on his back, as part of a campaign to raise awareness for Cerebral Palsy.
Hunter Gandee started the long trek with little brother Braden, who suffers from Cerebral Palsy, on Friday morning in Lambertville, Michigan, an unincorporated community near the Ohio border.
The brothers reached the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor at about 4 p.m. on Sunday, joined for the final leg by friends and family.

Female Fan (Tonya Carpenter) in Serious Condition After Hit By Broken Bat at Fenway Park During Boston Red Sox Game (VIDEO) (Update: Hospital Says. “It’s still life-threatening, However, she is expected to survive.)
SCARY MOMENT AT LAST NIGHT’S RED SOX GAME …
According to The Boston Herald, a woman who was hit by a broken bat during yesterday’s Boston Red Sox -Oakland A’s game is in serious condition with life-threatening injuries. The game was halted in the middle of the second inning following the incident. The woman, Tonya Carpenter, was rushed from Fenway Park is in serious condition to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
Tonya Carpenter was sitting behind the visitors’ on-deck circle at Fenway Park Friday night watching the Red Sox take on the Oakland Athletics with a man and her son.
Then, A’s third baseman Brett Lawrie shattered his bat on a groundout in the second inning, and the park went silent.
The broken barrel of Lawrie’s maple bat had flown into the third-baseline stands and struck Carpenter in the head. Carpenter immediately began to bleed profusely, as medical personnel rushed to her aid.
Carpenter was carted out of the park, her screams audible to fans, and transported to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center with what appeared to be “life-threatening” injuries, Boston police spokeswoman Rachel McGuire told Boston.com.
Boston Globe: After injury, woman was wheeled away.
At 7:45 a.m. Saturday, Beth Israel spokeswoman Jennifer Kritz said the hospital is not providing any information regarding the condition of the woman at this time.
The team’s principal owner, John Henry, also owns the Globe.
Red Sox manager John Farrell said after the game that the incident was “a scary moment.”
“Our thoughts and concern and certainly our prayers go out to the woman who was struck with the bat, her, and her family,” Farrell said. “All you can think about is a family coming to a ballgame to hopefully get three hours of enjoyment and unfortunately with how close our stands are to the field of action . . . an accident like this tonight, it’s certainly disturbing.”
A woman struck by a piece of a baseball bat at Boston’s Fenway Park suffered “life-threatening” injuries but is expected to survive, Boston police spokesperson Rachel McGuire said Saturday.
The incident occurred during the second inning of Friday night’s Red Sox game against the Oakland Athletics when Athletics’ third baseman Brett Lawrie was at bat.
The hospital identified the woman as Tonya Carpenter. She was in serious condition Saturday, according to hospital spokeswoman Kelly Lawman. The family was grateful for thoughts and prayers, the hospital said.
“It’s still life-threatening,” McGuire said of Carpenter’s injuries. “However, she is expected to survive.”
Non-Profit Homes for Our Troops Gave Home to “Permanently Paralyzed” Vet Army Specialist Justin Perez-Gorda … Now Must Weigh Options as it Appears to Have been a Fraud
VALOR HOME … Was this a con from the outset by this couple to get a new home bought and paid for?
Homes for Our Troops, a non-profit organization, provided military veteran Army Specialist Justin Perez-Gorda a home free of charge to account for his handicap and paralysis; however, something fishy appears to be going on … within weeks after Justin Perez-Gorda and his wife moved into the home, he was walking. Miracle or fraud? I will opt for the latter. When confronted by the media of his miraculous recovery, Justin Perez-Gorda told the reporter to get off his property. The non-profit, Homes for Our Troops said the organization is thinking about its next steps and has to weigh their options. One of them might be trying to take back the home.
The man suffered a brain injury in Afghanistan in 2011, but for years he and his wife claimed that he was paralyzed form the waist down.
“He has permanent loss of use of both lower extremities. He’s paralyzed from the belly button down,” Josephine Perez-Gorda said in a Homes for Our Troops promotional video.
But, soon after the couple moved into the house specially designed for a handicapped individual, neighbors noticed something odd: Perez-Gorda could walk. Those who spoke to WTSP said the couple became angry when asked about his condition.
Army Specialist Justin Perez-Gorda suffered a traumatic brain injury while serving in Afghanistan in January 2011.
For years, he and his wife claimed publicly he was paralyzed from the belly button down.
“He has permanent loss of use of both lower extremities. He’s paralyzed from the belly button down,” Josephine Perez-Gorda said during a taped video segment later used by Homes for Our Troops for fundraising efforts.
Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization building specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for the most severely injured Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan.
If this is a fraud, which it really appears to be, it is disgusting. With so many soldiers returning from war in Iraq and Afghanistan that are truly needing of such homes, for one of their own to perpetrate such a con is just unconscionable. There is no doubt that Army Specialist Justin Perez-Gorda suffered some type of injury, but it was nothing like what was embellished. Watch the promotional VIDEO below from Homes for Our Troops and you can plainly hear Justin’s wife, Josephine Perez-Gorda, say at the 1:35 minute mark that he has permanent loss of the use of both lower extremities and that he was paralyzed from the belly-button down. Hmm, that is a far cry from the VIDEO above where Justin can be seen walking and carrying wood.
Army SPC Justin Perez-Gorda was on his first deployment when he became a paraplegic and suffered a traumatic brain injury, as the result of an IED explosion in Memlah, Afghanistan on January 5, 2011.

Train 188 from Washington to New York with 238 passengers and five crew members aboard derailed …
Six people have now been declared dead and over 146 injured following the Amtrak train derailment in Port Richmond. Of the 238 passengers on board the train, 6 have died, 8 passengers remain in critical condition at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia and many other passengers were injured suffering fractures ti limbs. The accident happened at about 9:28 PM, with six cars overturning and the engine separating from the rest of the train. It is unknown what called the derailment; however, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is launching a full team to investigate.
At least six people were killed and dozens injured, eight critically, when a northbound Amtrak train derailed Tuesday night in Port Richmond.
In the moments after the derailment, scores of emergency personnel swarmed over more than a half-dozen toppled train cars, trying to reach the dazed, the injured, the dying.
Some people were reported trapped in the train, and crews cut into the cars to try to free the injured.
At a briefing early Wednesday morning, with Gov. Wolf at his side, Mayor Nutter reported that five people had died and that 65 people were taken to area hospitals, 54 of them to Temple University Hospital.
Herbert Cushing, chief medical officer at Temple, reported later that a sixth person, who had suffered a massive chest injury, had died. Eight other patients were in critical condition.
Train 188, bound to New York from Washington with 238 passengers and five crew members aboard, had left 30th Street Station minutes before the accident, which occurred near a curve at Wheatsheaf Lane and I-95.
Amtrak has suspended travel between Philadelphia and New York. Individuals with questions about their friends and family on train 188 should call Amtrak’s Incident Hotline at 800-523-9101.
“It is an absolute, disastrous mess,” Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter said of the crash site. “I’ve never seen anything like this in my life.”
Amtrak Northeast Regional Train 188 was traveling from Washington to New York when it derailed in the Port Richmond neighborhood of Philadelphia about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The impact tore cars apart, sending seven of them flying from the tracks, and left the engine a mangled mess.
“We have confirmed an engine and all seven cars derailed,” a U.S. Department of Transportation representative told CNN on Wednesday, adding that the engine and two cars were left standing upright, three cars were tipped on their sides, and one was nearly flipped over on its roof. The seventh one is “leaning hard,” they said.
RAW VIDEO from aboard the New York-Bound Amtrak Train Derails Near Philadelphia
Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor service between New York and Philadelphia is suspended after a deadly derailment Tuesday night just north of Philadelphia.
Amtrak trains 151 and 181 are canceled Wednesday, and passengers in Baltimore are advised to use MARC trains 517 and 523, Maryland Transit Administration officials said. All MARC Penn Line service will run as scheduled.
Amtrak will run on a modified schedule between Washington and Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Philadelphia, and New York and Boston.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of life from Amtrak Northeast Regional Train 188 that derailed north of Philadelphia Tuesday evening. We ask the news media to be respectful of our customers, our employees, and their families.
There were approximately 238 passengers and 5 crew members on board. Individuals with questions about their friends and family on this train should call the Amtrak Incident Hotline 800-523-9101. Amtrak has also established a Family Assistance Center to work closely with family and friends of individuals on the train. Local emergency responders are on the scene and an investigation is ongoing.
Dr. Ben Carson Is In … He Announced Today That He Will Run for 2016 President of the United States of America
DR. BEN CARSON SAYS HE IS IN THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL RACE …
We had all expected that Dr. Ben Carson would officially enter the presidential race next week in Detroit; however, he told local media today that he would run for the President of the United States. Carson shared his decision with WPEC-TV, the CBS affiliate in West Palm Beach, FL in an exclusive interview on Sunday.
Carson, 63, will formally jump into the race at an event in Detroit, where he grew up.
His presidential campaign will mark Carson’s first run for office, though he’s been a Tea Party hero since 2013 following his blistering attack of Obamacare at the National Prayer Breakfast in front of President Obama.
While he enters the race as a long shot to capture the GOP nomination, he currently polls ahead of several more established Republican contenders in Iowa, site of the first caucus, including former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, the winner there in 2012.
The Republican field of candidates continues to widen.
Retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson is expected to make a major announcement at an event Monday in his hometown of Detroit.
But in an exclusive interview Sunday, Dr. Carson tells our National Correspondent Jeff Barnd he is in the race for the White House in 2016.
“I’m willing to be part of the equation and therefore, I’m announcing my candidacy for President of the United States of America.”
With that, Dr. Ben Carson is off and running. He rose from poverty in Detroit to the head of the pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. He’s now retired from medicine.
“Many people have suggested to me that I should run for president, even though I’m not a politician,” Carson said.
Dr. Carson’s political star rose at the National Prayer Breakfast two years ago when he admonished President Obama for several white house policies including Obamacare.
“I began to ask myself why are people clamoring for me to do this? I represented a lot of the same thoughts that they have,” Dr. Carson says. “I’m not 100% sure ‘politics as usual’ is going to save us. I think we are in a severe problem … a problematic situation.”
Catholic Middle School Student Rose McGrath Who Battled Cancer Has Been Dismissed From St. Joseph Middle School Over Attendance & Academic Performance
SHAMEFUL, HOW CAN THE EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IN THIS COUNTRY BE SO FRIGGING IGNORANT … MIDDLE SCHOOL DISMISSES CANCER SURVIVOR.
In 2012 Rose McGrath was diagnoses with with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. For 2 1/2 years she has battled the dreaded disease and survived only to have to battle the ignorance of the educational school system in America. Rose McGrath was dismissed from St. Joseph Middle School, part of the Battle Creek Area Catholic School system, because of attendance and academic performance. UNREAL. How the hell do you dismiss a student when the reason why they have missed school is because of battling cancer, not just skipping school for the sake of doing it? Has the educational system lost its mind in this country? And this isn’t not even public school, it is a Catholic school. Have you no shame. no common sense, no compassion?
12 year old Rose McGrath said, “I didn’t do anything wrong, but they still got rid of me.”
Father John Fleckenstein, with Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools said the following, “These were extraordinary circumstances, but so many accommodations were made we felt eventually it became a point where we really had to help Rose, by being able to make sure that she was getting the assistance that she needed and to learn.” The parents disagree and stated that the school failed their child saying, “The accommodations which were made were woefully inadequate for a child with such a serious diagnosis.”
A young girl who has just finished fighting the biggest fight of her life has been dealt another blow.
In August 2012, Rose McGrath, of Battle Creek, was diagnosed with leukemia.
But last week, her family received a letter in the mail that would turn her world upside down.
The letter addressed concerns regarding Rose’s attendance and academic performance, and stated that Rose had been dismissed from St. Joseph Middle School.
“I didn’t do anything wrong, but they still got rid of me,” Rose said.
Rose McGrath is beside herself.
“Even though she’s now done with her treatment you still have a very long recovery process because you’ve basically just put two and a half years of poison into your body. you’re not recovering overnight,” said Rose’s mother Barbara McGrath.
The McGraths say despite all of the obstacles, Rose was on track to pass her core classes.
Father John Fleckenstein and the St. Joseph Middle School should be ashamed of themselves. You call yourselves Christians? How in the hell do you let one of God’s children fall through the cracks after she had battled something as vile as acute lymphoblastic leukemia. How can the answer be to dismiss a child from school whose only crime was battling cancer. What kind of low life people are you?
The McGrath parents said they have filed a civil rights complaint on behalf of their daughter. Personally, I hope they sue this school and Father John Fleckenstein personally.
Let’s take a look at the St Josephs Middle School website and their mission statement.
Let me just say one thing to Father Fleckenstein, the school board and the Battle Creek area Catholic School system … JESUS CHRIST WOULD HAVE A HUGE ISSUE WITH WHAT YOU HAVE DONE AND I HARDLY BELIEVE THAT DISMISSING A CANCER PATIENT IS IN LINE WITH CHRIST’S VALUES.
High expectations, Christ-centered values and morality are three of many of the characteristics that make the St. Joseph educational experience both unique and rewarding. There are special opportunities for middle-school-aged learners to best prepare them for high school and beyond.
We provide a safe and nurturing environment for your student which fosters life-long learning and faith development. Staff is especially mindful and prepared to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of adolescents. They are committed to cultivating a strong sense of belonging by focusing on academics interwoven with self-respect and acceptance for others. Students experience teachers who truly care for them and their peers.
Beyond academics, emphasis is placed upon technology integration—as technology is no longer an add-on in education; it is now an essential tool in the learning process. A wide variety of extracurricular offerings are offered; allowing each student to discover and develop their talents. Service is paramount at St. Joseph Middle School; with Jesus as our ultimate model of service. Students strive to follow in His footsteps by participation in thoughtful service projects that witness our Christian beliefs.
St. Joseph Middle School provides three years of opportunities to discover your unique academic strengths, explore your spirituality, deepen your commitment to social responsibility and prepare for high school and beyond.
Megan Murphy on MSNBC … Hillary Clinton “Cruised Right On By” Everyday Iowans Waiting To Meet Her” Including Elderly People in Wheel Chairs
WHAT DOES HILLARY CLINTON HAVE AGAINST PEOPLE IN WHEEL CHAIRS?
First the Hillary Clinton’s Scoobie van is parked in a handicapped parking spot illegally and now she cruises right past people, some in wheelchairs that were there to meet her in Iowa. Hillary’s meet and greet the little people turns out to be total BS as she wound up driving right by the so-called every day Americans that she told us all that she wanted to meet on this van tour. Imagine that, Hillary lied again. Just curious, how is Hillary Clinton supposed to be the champion of the common folk if she cant find time to meet with them?
Washington Free Beacon – Reporter: Hillary’s Van Drove Past Elderly People in Wheelchairs Waiting to Talk to Her.
Hillary Clinton wants to meet “everyday Americans” so badly, she drove right past many waiting in front of her event in Iowa.
In the now-viral clip of reporters chasing after Clinton’s “Scooby” van, the Clinton camp drove to the back entrance, surprising both reporters and many of her supporters waiting to get a glimpse of the candidate.
“I think what you don’t see in that clip, which is one of the most surprising things is there were actually a ton of people waiting for her at the front of that college,” said Financial Times reporter Megan Murphy. “There were elderly people in wheelchairs, there were people — and they just cruised right on by to the back.”
The news that Clinton symbolically drove past ordinary voters while driving their own “everyday Americans” to the event will certainly reflect poorly on the campaign. The incident draws parallels to the man Clinton hopes to succeed in the Oval Office when he drove past disabled veterans in Phoenix.
ABOVE THE LAW: Hillary Clinton’s Mystery Machine Scooby Van Illegally Parked in Handicap Parking Spot … But What Difference Does It Make?
ARE REAL AMERICANS ALLOWED TO PARK IN HANDICAPPED PARKING SPOTS WITHOUT HANDICAPPED STICKERS … IF HILLARY WAS A REPUBLICAN THE MSM WOULD BE ASKING … WHY DOES HILLARY CLINTON THINK SO LITTLE OF THE HANDICAPPED?
Add another black mark to the Hillary Clinton roll out of her 2016 presidential run. This time it was in Council Bluffs, Iowa where Hillary’s Scooby Doo van parked in a handicapped parking spot. Remember, the rules really don’t apply to Democrat politicians, especially Hillary Clinton. So this is how she shows she is one of us? Do any of you think that there would not be a ticket on your vehicle if you had done the same? That’s because you are not entitled and above the law. How about a comment from Team Hillary where they they are asked whether they think its OK to park in a handicap spot and why they think so little of the handicapped that they would illegally park in a spot?
Hillary Clinton’s now-famous Scooby Doo van made an appearance in Council Bluffs, Iowa on Thursday for a closed-door meeting with state Democratic Party officials – and it idled in a handicapped parking space from beginning to end.
Footage broadcast by KETV-7 in the nearby city of Omaha, Nebraska, showed the presidential nominee emerging from a cafe, greeting onlookers and walking past the blue handicapped-parking sign to climb into the vehicle.
