sure something like this doesn't happen again Equifax will pay at least 575 million dollars to consumers including 300 million for free credit monitoring services Allison Thompson received a letter from Equifax saying her data may have been compromised and says she still won't be able to trust the company you pay them to protect you you pay them to get your credit report and then they make money

tonight an urgent manhunt is underway for a killer after an American woman and her boyfriend were found murdered it happened while the two were traveling in one of the most remote parts of Canada and late word now the new disappearance of two teens could be connected NBC's Morgan Chesky with details tonight investigators believe this remote Canadian highway may hold answers in a murder mystery North Carolina native China Dees on a road trip with our Australian boyfriend Lucas Fowler when their 1986 Chevy van broke down it's not yet clear whether Lucas and China were targeted or if this was an opportunity a crime of opportunity police say Sunday the couple pulled over at Liars hot springs a popular tourist stop but nearly sixteen hours from the nearest major city Juneau Alaska Monday morning their bodies were found on the side of the road shot to death reports of missing teenagers on another remote Canadian Road their car found on fire police were asked if the cases are connected it's possible it's possible tonight Canadian police urging anyone with a dashcam who traveled that highway to come forward in hopes of getting answers as families remember a young couple full of life exploring Canada's national parks for something like that to happen it must have really been something because these are two people that have travelled around the world and we're not people to be caught off guard growing questions as police hunt for a killer Morgan Chesky NBC News next tonight our series one in five kids at risk Oregon is making a major change to help young people face their struggles it's become one of the first States to allow students to mental health days as an excused absence NBC's Kate snow with the story Hayley Hardcastle and Derek Evans were seniors when they lobbied state lawmakers for a new bill when Oregon's students head back to school they'll be allowed to call in sick not just if they're physically ill but if they need a mental health day I think the most amazing part about this whole thing is that it was student-led I'm personally in need of mental health days Derek told lawmakers he struggled with anxiety in high school I'm being marked absent unexcused can't make up these assignments because I don't have the willpower to go to school today it's just too much and there is no system set in place to help me or again has one of the highest rates of teen suicide in the country it's the second leading cause of death for 10 to 34 year olds in that state nationally suicide is at a 50-year high under the new oregon law mental health days will be considered excused absences students won't be penalized and can make up exams their parents still have to call the school but now they can be honest about taking a day off to deal with their depression to deal with a panic attack to not have to be anxious about not being able to make up work our biggest goal is just making sure that everyone knows that mental health is just as valid as physical health there has been some backlash on social media wondering if kids will take advantage children are already missing school for mental health reasons the thing is they're lying about it we're hoping that this gives them the opportunity to start a positive conversation about what's going on and why they need help it's such an interesting idea how many days could someone take for mental health so Oregon law says that any student can take up to five days over a three month period for any kind of excused absence and now each school district will be able to revise that as they see fit for their students needs we'll see if it helps okay thank you very much just ahead the new warning you need to hear before you travel this summer why tourists need to be careful what they
