(AP) Two-year-old Tommy Gibson disappeared from his front yard nearly seven weeks ago, but his family and friends haven't given up hope that the toddler will be found. "People think, 'It won't happen to me," said Larry Gibson, a Douglas County sheriff's deputy and Tommy's father. "But here in Glendale, we know better than that now. It affects us all. We're pretty much family." Tommy Gibson was playing alone in the front yard of his family's mobile home March 18 in the rural community of Azalea when his father headed out a dirt road for his daily jog. When the boy's mother looked for him 10 minutes later, he was gone. Azalea is 37 miles south of Roseburg on Interstate 5. Searches of the surrounding wooded hills and farmland turned up nothing. Tracking dogs couldn't find a trail. Gibson and his wife, Judy, have said they believe someone abducted the boy, though no one saw anything to suggest that. Meanwhile, the Douglas County Sheriff's Department has called in state police to lend a hand in the investigation. "There's no leads," sheriff's Lt. Robert Stratton said. "But we want someone else to take a look at what we've done. A different set of eyes might spot something we've missed."

"It becomes an ID, a means of identifying a child five, six or seven years down the road," said Glendale Elementary School Principal Scott Bennighof, who has sent information on the fingerprinting home with kids. "A 2-year-old may forget his name or that he was abducted, but that fingerprint will go along with him forever." Gibson fingerprinted Tommy a few weeks before the boy disappeared. "When he saw that it looked like fun, I got him to sit still," Gibson said. "It gives us hope. It hasn't helped at this time, but if this goes on, it could be helpful." At home, Larry and Judy Gibson try to resume a normal life with their 4-year-old daughter, Karen. "We won't be back to normal until we find out what's happened to him," Gibson said. "It's only a month, but it seems like years."

PORTLAND (AP) The Bonneville Power Administration has announced agreements with two California utilities that will allow BPA to increase the flow of the Columbia River to help migrating salmon. The two power exchange agreements with the California Department of Water Resources and San Diego Gas and Electric were signed specifically to help the summer migration of young and adult salmon, BPA Administrator Jim Jura said in a news release Thursday. Flows could be increased by 1,000 to 4,000 cubic feet per second along the length of the Columbia River as a result of the power swap. "BPA executes energy ex-, change agreements almost every year," Jura said. "This is the first time that exchanges of this type have contained clauses that give us the option to manipulate water intentionally to help fish." Exchanges normally call for utilities to return BPA power within 24 hours. The new agreements allow them to defer returning power until the fall. Roberts: Council should do more to restore salmon runs PORTLAND (AP) The Northwest Power Planning Council should assume a greater role in restoring salmon runs, Oregon Gov. Barbara Roberts told a congressional subcommittee. "There is no more urgent issue facing our four-state region than the implementation of a wise recovery plan for the native salmon runs," Roberts said Thursday. She presented Sen. Mark Hatfield, R-Ore., with the final report of the Northwest salmon summit, which brought 30 river users and other parties together to negotiate a recovery plan. She also made public the summit's program for 1991. Hatfield established the summit in an attempt to avoid having salmon runs declared threatened or endangered species. But because the plans do not go far enough, Roberts said, the Northwest Power Planning Council should continue the summit's work. "To do so, the council must broaden its scope to include new innovative methods to restore these fish runs," she said.
