MORNING Midwest Digest, April 4, 2019

Max Armstrong talks about the finding of a kidnapped boy, bridge status, selling pork to China and April rain showers.

The FBI is working with several agencies across several states after a boy was found in Kentucky, claiming he was the boy who'd been kidnapped several years ago in Illinois.

The American Road and Transportation Builders Association released a bridge inventory analysis recently. More than 47,000 in the U.S. are structurally deficient.

The U.S. will likely sell more pork to China because of African Swine Fever, but Brazil is ready to sell some, as well.

Parts of the heartland are getting rain this morning.
