Model of the Year Faith Laureles embraces life on top

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (LRFW) - It has been one year since she was named the Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion Week 2014 Model of the Year, and model Faith Laureles is still in shock.

“I still can't believe it,” she said about winning the recognition.

Since receiving the Model of the Year award in Baton Rouge, Laureles was also named the Little Rock Fashion Week 2014 Model of the Year last summer and has embarked on a modeling career that continues to surprise her.

With an interest in the fashion industry, Laureles participated in the casting call in 2014 when her mother, Amy Laureles, was looking for a different experience for her daughter. Once announced as the Model of the Year, Laureles was able to advance her modeling career with a contract with talent agency, Oneofakind Talent Inc. The high school sophomore has strolled runways for LRFW, New Orleans Fashion Week, has been featured in photo shoots and has become the face of the second annual OBRFW and seventh annual LRFW.

Missing teen found in Ark. with 33-yr-old man


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A 16-year-old girl was found in Little Rock Friday morning, after disappearing from her Virginia home on Monday.

Police say she ran off to be with a 33-year-old here in Arkansas.

The teen was found at the Shadow Lakes apartment complex in West Little Rock. She was there with Donald "Bruce" Quesenberry.

Authorities say the two met on the internet. According to police, investigators eventually used social media to get in touch with the teen. They asked her to meet an officer outside the apartment, before taking Quesenberry into custody.

"The last three days, my heart has went out to this family. I can't imagine the stress that this family has endured, and I am elated today that Aysia is on her way back home to her family," said Mark Sisson with the Christianburg, Va. police.

AHTD opening first flyover at Big Rock Interchange


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AHTD) – Construction work will require lane closures on Interstates 630 and 430 in Little Rock, according to Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) officials.

Crews will be striping, hanging overhead signs and relocating traffic to the new I-430 northbound to I-630 eastbound flyover ramp. This work will require closing the center and outside eastbound lanes of Interstate 630. The closure will extend from Shackleford Road to the Barrow Road Exit. However, all entrance ramps and exit ramps will remain open.

Also closed will be the northbound outside lane of Interstate 430 from the Shackleford Road overpass to Interstate 630.

WLR residents push back against new apartments


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The Little Rock City Planning Commission voted against two massive apartment complex projects proposed for West Little Rock.

In a meeting that lasted nearly two hours, commissioners heard from project developer Jacob Chi as well as numerous homeowners who were against the new construction. "Basically what we're trying to do is make things better," Chi said. "I think that there's some folks in opposition that are just afraid of the change."

Many of the people who spoke out praised Chi for trying to improve the area surrounding the intersection of Kanis Road and Cooper Orbit Road, but said there are too many traffic concerns to start building multi-unit apartment buildings.

In the end the commissioners sided with the homeowners, saying they too are concerned with only having two lanes on Kanis Road for all the traffic the apartments would bring to the area.
