Dozens of new Wildcats said goodbye to their parents Sunday; now they embark on a college career.

This year's bon voyage brunch was held at the student union, where visitors participated in raffles and learned more about the University of Arizona. Parents were encouraged to stay involved with their student's progress at the U of A, and of course, start wearing some Wildcat gear.

Giving blood is very critical. But, blood donors had another important reason to visit an east-side red cross location Sunday.

The center at Broadway and Kolb hosted a blood drive in honor of Kay read, who would've turned 65-years-old Sunday.

Read was abducted from her home in 2008 and hasn't been located. Kay was a regular blood donor.

"We're still looking I'm still waiting to bring my sister home and I'm not going to give up til I get her home and I'll do everything I an to keep her name out there and to honor her in every way I can," says Read's sister, Mary Seagle.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Kay read, you are urged to call 911.

He was seriously wounded in a fire fight during a combat operation. Lugo enlisted in the army immediately after graduating from Tucson high school. This was his sixth deployment. He deployed three times to Afghanistan -- twice to Iraq. We hope to know more about funeral arrangements soon.
