Looking to get rid of old electronics? Rocky Point will be the place to be Saturday. Pender County will be collecting any, and all electronic devices tomorrow at the Rocky Point Medical Pavilion.

Beginning at 9:00 a.m., folks can swing by and drop off computers, cell phones, old TVs and any thing else that plugs in. The Heide Trask Junior ROTC will be on hand to do the heavy lifting, and you won’t even need to leave you car. It’s a great way to help the environment.

“Depositing them in the landfill means that’s its going to be a long time before they ever break down. So we’re getting real creative because we’re starting to realize there’s a limited life on our landfills,” said Melinda Knoerzer of Pender County Utilities. “We have got to get creative into what we can put in there and what we can’t, and we are finding markets for the recyclables.”

Beginning in 2011, it will be illegal to dispose of electronic devices in any North Carolina landfill, meaning Saturday is a great way to start recycling.

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — North Carolina authorities have still been unable to locate a missing 5-year-old girl after surveillance footage showed her being carried into a hotel room by a man now wanted by police.

Police revealed footage Thursday of Shaniya Davis and a man identified as 29-year-old Mario Andrette McNeill entering a Sanford hotel more than 40 minutes before the girl’s mother reported her missing Tuesday morning. The hotel is about 40 miles from the girl’s home.

A hotel worker called police after recognizing Shaniya but McNeill and the girl had left by the time they arrived.

Clarence Coe was arrested Wednesday on kidnapping charges after witnesses say they saw him take Shaniya out of the Sleepy Hollow Mobile Home Park in Fayetteville. He has denied any wrongdoing.

Officials say they think Shaniya is safe.
