People: Family reports actress as missing

From Wire Reports

Police in Washington state say an actress known for her roles in “August: Osage County,” “Frozen River” and “Django Unchained” is missing.

The Seattle Times reports that 32-year-old Misty Upham hasn’t been heard from or seen for the past week.

Officials at the Auburn Police Department say the acclaimed Native American actress was staying at a family member’s apartment on the Muckleshoot reservation near Auburn. Her father filed a missing person report on Monday.

Cmdr. Steve Stocker said Upham is not considered endangered. He acknowledged that her family is concerned about her and so are the police, but her disappearance is not considered suspicious.

In a statement given to the media on Friday, Upham’s father, Charles, wrote that she has a medical condition that has the family concerned.

Police find rapper’s gun at airport

Police say rapper Waka Flocka Flame was arrested after a handgun was found in his carry-on bag during a security scan at Atlanta’s airport.

Atlanta police say the 28-year-old rapper and “Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta” star didn’t have a weapons permit. He was arrested Friday afternoon and charged with carrying a weapon in a prohibited place.

He was being held in the Clayton County Jail. An initial court appearance was set for Saturday morning. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

Transportation Security Administration spokesman Mark Howell said agents have found about 1,600 guns so far this year in bags at airport security checkpoints nationwide.

In addition to any criminal penalties, Howell said the TSA can impose a fine of up to $11,000 depending on the infraction.
