A family in Portsmouth went on a frantic search after a mother lost an heirloom while she was at her son’s little league game. “There was just no hope because the field is huge and there’s gravel pits,” said the mother, “and you know grass everywhere and sand.”Mother Hallie Scraback was driving back from her son’s little league tournament in Rhode Island last week when she noticed her engagement ring diamond had fallen off.
Bensenville, IL (WHDH) — The man accused of kidnapping a University of Illinois grad student last month, was spotted at the vigil for Yingying Zhang one day before his arrest.

Christensen is barely visible behind hundreds of students, members of the community and even the missing student’s family, but university police confirmed it is him.
Denver, CO (WHDH) — A group in Colorado is trying to ban children under the age of 13 from having smart phones. They want the question on next year’s ballot. The man leading the charge is a father of five. He wants retailers to submit reports to the state government that say they know who each smart phone sold was going to. The bill would also fine retailers who sell smartphones to kids under age 13. “The kids aren’t playing out there anymore,” Dr. Timothy Farnum.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
