Search on in Pearl River

Good Wednesday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles!

It's 75 degrees right now, and with the warm start you better believe it's going to get even hotter in the afternoon. Meteorologist Michael Haynes will let us know what the heat index is looking like in his First Alert Forecast.

Happening now, rescue crews will continue their search of the Pearl River near the site of the Byram Swinging Bridge.  A man jumped off the bridge Tuesday falling 30 feet into the water below, but he never resurfaced.

Plus, a prison inmate is stabbed to death in Parchmann. We'll tell you what led to the stabbing at the top of the hour.

And, the life and mission of civil rights pioneer Medgar Evers continues to be celebrated on the 50th anniversary of his assassination. Jewell Hillery will let us know how they are commemorating him today in live reports.

All those stories and much more are headed your way.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now, you can find us on Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Hump Day!
