A New York community is coming together to find a missing 29-year-old. Alicia M. Kenyon has been missing since March 20, 2021. Alicia was initially reported missing by her family after having last seen at the Walmart in the Village of Catskill. Alicia had been living with roommates at Catskill Motor Court. 

A week after Alicia was reported missing, state police released a photo from a security camera showing Alicia inside a Stewart’s Shop in the Village of Saugerties on the morning of Saturday, March 20. They added that Alicia may now be in a nearby town. 

Alicia’s sister, Amy, says she doesn’t want to speculate where her sister could be or why no one has heard from her but said their family is concerned for Alicia’s safety and want to know that she’s OK. She added that family and friends have not reached Alicia on her cell phone and that there has been no activity on her bank account.

Alicia is described as being 5’6″ tall and weighs about 160 lbs. She has green eyes, dark hair brown hair, and was last seen wearing a blue jacket and dark camouflage pants. Anyone with information on Alicia’s whereabouts is asked to contact the New York State Police.

This is your market update for the morning

Stock futures were mixed this morning with the Dow Jones Industrial Average climbing 78 points, the S&P 500 remaining steady, and the Nasdaq 100 futures dipping lower. Regardless of the recent volatility in the market though, the Dow and the S&P 500 are still tracking for gains this month overall. The Dow is expected to log a 7.2% increase while the S&P 500 is slated for a 4.2% jump.

“The significant tailwinds propelling equities higher and the forces that have driven equities into, during, and now out of the pandemic remain,” Evercore ISI analysts say. “Investors seem to understand that faster growth, rising earnings growth expectations, still historically low corporate borrowing costs, and pent up consumer demand will fuel further market gains.”

What else should you keep an eye out for this morning?

The Suez Canal has successfully been reopened

The Ever Given cargo ship that had been wedged diagonally in the Suez Canal blocking all traffic has finally been moved. 

The ship had managed to bring the key global trade route to a complete standstill.

Over 300 ships were unable to use the canal since last Tuesday, including some carrying livestock. 

Dredgers worked over the weekend to dislodge the stranded vessel, shifting huge quantities of sand in an effort to help free the stranded ship, the canal authority said.

More than a dozen tugboats were used to conduct pulling maneuvers from three directions to dislodge the ship, it added.

After almost an entire week of the trade route being shut down what all was affected and will it impact you?
