Investigators are looking into whether the disappearance has anything to do with the two passengers who were flying with stolen passports.

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — Officials today will be outlining their plan for upgraded security at this year's Boston Marathon. Local, state and federal agencies, the Boston Athletic Association and leaders from the eight communities that make up the marathon route started working on a plan following last year's bombing attack that killed three people and wounded more than 260. This year, police are expecting about 36,000 runners and up to a million spectators.

TACOMA. Wash. (AP) — Immigration officials say a lockdown has been lifted at a Washington state detention center where many detainees are involved in a hunger strike to protest their treatment.

Officials say about 330 detainees refused to eat Sunday lunch, while 750 wouldn't eat Saturday.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Investigators in Anaheim, Calif., are trying to determine why a high school theater stage collapsed Saturday night, sending 25 students to the hospital.

They fell about 5 feet.
