GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Green Bay police say a nine-month investigation into a street gang has led to the arrests of nine people. Authorities say the recent arrests have broken up a gang called the Bay City Latin Kings. Police say a 26-year-old man who was arrested last week is the suspected gang leader. A court commissioner found probable cause that the man and two others committed various drug crimes.

NEENAH, Wis. (AP) - A missing 6-year-old boy has been found in the Fox River in Neenah. Police say the child was reported missing yesterday afternoon at Riverside Park. Searchers found the boy in the river a short time later. Police say the child was taken to Theda Clark Medical Center, but there's no word on his condition.

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - Authorities conducting a human trafficking sting in northeastern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin have made six arrests. They include a Douglas County, Wisconsin, man charged with child enticement. Investigators say 51-year-old Ronald Provost responded to their fake online ad and arranged to meet with an underage girl at a Superior hotel after sending her a sexually explicit picture.

BAYFIELD, Wis. (AP) - National Park Service rangers have discovered a fire on one of the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior that they say has been burning for weeks. The park service says it's allowing the fire on York Island to keep burning. Officials say a lightning strike likely ignited the blaze last month. They say it wasn't discovered sooner because flames or smoke weren't visible from the lake.
