The father of a woman “infatuated” with the mass shooting at Columbine High School — and who triggered a manhunt and the shutdown of Denver-area schools Wednesday after she allegedly flew to the city and bought a gun — said he just wants his daughter to come home.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI said that Sol Pais, 18, is “considered to be extremely dangerous” after traveling to Colorado from Miami on Monday night before purchasing a pump-action shotgun and ammunition.

Pais had made threats to “commit an act of violence in the Denver metropolitan area” just days before the 20th anniversary of the attack, according to officials.

On Tuesday night, her father, in Surfside, Florida, told reporters through a closed door at the family home the experience was “like a bad dream.”

“She can come home. I think she wants to be ok,” her father told WSVN. “I think it’s maybe she has a mental problem.”

Her father, who was not identified, said the family last saw Pais on Sunday.

“They’re looking for her,” he told WSVN. “We don’t know what to do.”

A neighbor said the family moved to the area about 10 years ago, and that Pais was spotted in the neighborhood and attended Miami Beach High School.

Miami-Dade Public Schools confirmed in a statement that Pais is a senior at the high school.

“We are fully assisting the FBI in their investigation,” Miami-Dade Public Schools told CBS4. “As far as this case goes, I want to stress that, at this time, there have been no threats to M-DCPS schools. The threats appear limited to schools in Colorado.”

Another neighbor told CBS4 that Pais was a quiet person but well behaved.

“She always kept to herself. She never got in trouble at school,” Patricia Bilstin told the television station. “So surprising, and I feel sorry for the family.”

Authorities said Pais was last seen near Columbine, located just outside Denver, wearing a black T-shirt, camouflage pants and black boots. They appealed for anyone seeing her to call an FBI tip line at 303-630-6227, and said she is too dangerous to be approached by civilians. The alert also said police who come into contact with her should detain her and evaluate her mental health.

“This has become a massive manhunt…and every law enforcement agency is participating and helping in this effort,” Dean Phillips, special agent in charge of the FBI in Denver, said late Tuesday night.

“She can please come home,” he said. “I think she’s going to be ok.”

California woman, 2 children nearly hit by out-of-control car in terrifying video

A family in California came inches from death Monday after an out-of-control car could be seen nearly striking them on a terrifying surveillance video.

The Napa Police Department said in a Facebook post a woman and 2 children just had stepped out of a restaurant when the driver of the car lost control.

“A VERY close call!” police said. “This scary video is a good reminder to always be aware of your surroundings.”

Maine city sets record for most consecutive days with at least an inch of snow on the ground

Westlake Legal Group snowroad_1 Maine city sets record for most consecutive days with at least an inch of snow on the ground Travis Fedschun fox-news/weather fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/maine fox-news/us/environment/cities fox news fnc/us fnc article 4b4fef32-6f0d-5ba6-b8e4-5b4d80c7384d

Say it ain’t snow for one city in Maine.

The city of Caribou in the northern part of the state set a new record on Monday for the longest stretch of having at least an inch of snow on the ground.

“Caribou is now at 157 straight days of an inch or more on the ground,” the National Weather Service’s Caribou Office said on Twitter.

NEW JERSEY UTILITY WORKER NARROWLY ESCAPES FALLEN POWER LINE ERUPTING INTO FIREBALL AFTER STORM

As of Tuesday, there were still 10 inches of snow on the ground in the city of just over 8,000 people.

The weather service said earlier this month that the previous record was 155 days of snow on the ground during the winter of 2002-2003.

“Keep in mind, we have a relatively short period of record with snow depth data, only since the winter of 1940-41,” the NWS Caribou said.

In March, Caribou was ranked top among the 10 U.S. cities with the highest snowfall totals this winter by AccuWeather.

The NWS said in January that Caribou saw 59.8 inches of snow, which “smashed” the previous record of 44.5 inches in January 1994.

“Not only did it break the January record, it almost broke the all-time snowiest month on record of December 1972 when 59.9 inches of snow was observed,” the agency said at the time.

The remaining snow may finally be gone by the end of the week, however, as temperatures are forecast to reach 60 degrees by Saturday.

Human remains found in Utah canyon may be those of woman who vanished during run

A set of human remains discovered in Utah canyon on Sunday may be those of a woman who was last seen going for a run over a year ago, according to officials.

The Utah County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release a man contacted authorities around 8:30 p.m. to report he discovered the remains while climbing in American Fork Canyon near the Swinging Bridge picnic site, located about 30 miles south of Salt Lake City.

“The man said he hikes regularly in that area but had never before hiked in this particular ravine,” police said.

Sgt. Spencer Cannon told FOX13 the area was “very difficult to get up” on the north side of the canyon, about 850 feet from the floor, and was not a place where people commonly go hiking.

“For whatever reason, this gentleman decided he wanted to go up this ravine,” Cannon said

Investigators discovered several personal items located with the remains that are consistent with descriptions of property known to be owned by 24-year-old Jerika Binks, according to police.

Binks was last seen on Feb. 18, 2018 when she told her roommate that she was going for a run. Trail cameras picked her up as Binks ran down the Timpanogos Cave Trail, but that was the only sign of her, according to FOX13.

An extensive search of the canyon afterward by Utah County Search and Rescue turned up nothing until the discovery Sunday.

Cannon told FOX13 that Binks was a fit runner and hiker, and loved being outdoors.

“Based on what we know of her likes and her interests, it’s not a surprise,” Cannon said.

Police said while there was evidence of injury, there is “no evidence at this stage of the investigation” to suggest foul play was involved.

The remains were recovered by the sheriff’s office on Monday, and have been taken to the medical examiner’s office to identify them and determine a cause of death.

In a statement released to FOX11, the school district said that police informed school officials Kraus “had a plan to cause harm at Neenah High School.”

“Police have indicated that there is no danger to students and staff at the high school and the school day on Monday will proceed as normal,” the statement read. “Additional counselors are available to students and there is an extra police presence as an additional precaution.”

A utility worker in New Jersey had a shockingly-close encounter Monday after a powerline caught fire as it struck the wet ground after a storm.

The Manchester Police Department said in a Facebook post the incident happened at the intersection of State Highway 70 and Colonial Drive in Manchester Township, located about 60 miles south of New York City.

“Last night was quite SHOCKING for some of our midnight officers!” the department said.

‘Targeted’ shootings that left 4 dead in Canada may have stemmed from reported neighbor dispute

Four people were shot dead in 3 separate locations across a city in western Canada in a series of “targeted” attacks on Monday that may have all been sparked by a neighborhood dispute, according to a wife of one of the victims.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police Supt. Ted De Jager said at a news conference the killing spree began around 10:30 a.m. outside a home in downtown Penticton, British Columbia.

As authorities were responding to the initial shooting, a second call of another incident came in from the south end of the city. When authorities went to the home involved in the second shooting, they discovered the bodies of 3 people in two locations.

By 11:30 a.m., a 60-year-old man turned himself in at the front desk of an RCMP station in the city, CBC News reported.

“We’re still trying to find the motive for this whole incident, so that’s part of the ongoing investigation,” De Jager said. “Indications right now are that all four were targeted.”

The four victims — two men and two women — were all killed within a 3-mile radius.

Renate Winter, the wife of the first victim – 71-year-old Rudi Winter – told the Vancouver Sun she believed the shootings were likely linked to a neighborhood dispute.

Winter said that she and her husband lived next to the estranged wife of the alleged gunman and had a contentious relationship.

“We cut a tree down in our yard and she had a fit, so anytime we did anything she had a fit, so we don’t talk to her,” she told the Vancouver Sun. “She called the cops because my husband was putting rocks in between our properties, and maybe his big toe went on her property.”

De Jager, who called the shootings a “deeply troubling incident,” offered no additional details on how the victims knew each other or a possible motive. Charges are still pending against the man who turned himself in.

Stranded dog discovered paddling 130 miles from shore rescued by oil rig workers

A dog that ended up stranded in the middle of the Gulf of Thailand, paddling some 130 miles away from shore may soon have a home after being rescued by oil rig workers on Friday.

Workers spotted the animal’s head poking up above water as the dog paddled through the ocean towards the platform.

“If the waves had been strong, we wouldn’t have seen him,” Vitisak Payalaw, of Chevron Thailand Exploration and Production’s oil drilling team, wrote on Facebook. He shared images and video of the rescue.

“Finally, we decided to tie a rope around his neck and pull him to our site,” Vitisak wrote. “We had to race against time as wind waves might sweep him away.”

The brown Aspin dog was eventually pulled from the sea safely, but “looked exhausted,” according to Vitisak.

The pooch was believed to have fallen into the sea from a fishing trawler, the Bangkok Post reported. She has now been named “Boonrod” which in Thai means “making a spiritual donation for good luck in the future.”

Boonrod spent the weekend onboard the drilling platform, receiving food and water from the crew before she was brought back to land on Monday, the Bangkok Post reported.

People could be seen greeting the dog on video as she was taken off a boat and delivered into the care of the animal charity Watchdog Thailand.

The oil rig worker who saved the pooch said she is between 3 and 5 years old and now has “a lot of energy.”

“I hope to adopt her as a pet,” Vitisak told ViralPress. “I am looking forward to spending many happy years together with her.”

ISIS member tasked with ‘bringing in migrants,’ newly obtained terror group documents show

ISIS has tasked one of its terror bosses with moving militants out of Syria and into Europe, newly procured documents show.

Newly obtained documents by The Sunday Times show ISIS has a member tasked with “bringing in migrants and taking out brothers who have been given jobs” as a way to move fighters and money from Syria through Turkey into Europe.

The documents were obtained by the paper after being found on a hard drive dropped by members of an ISIS cell during a battle near the group’s tiny remaining stronghold in Syria earlier this year.

In a bid to stay relevant, the terror group — which recently lost nearly all of its self-proclaimed “caliphate” in Iraq and Syria — is planning to launch a fresh wave of attacks in Europe and the Middle East inspired by past atrocities: the 2015 Paris attacks that killed 130 people and 2017 truck attack in New York City that left eight dead.

Among the documents on the hard drive is a letter signed by six ISIS leaders and addressed to 47-year-old leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, which lays out the group’s new strategy of operations involving bank robberies, vehicle rammings, assassinations and computer hacking.

Operations around the world are to be directed by an ISIS member named Abu Khabab al-Muhajir, who controls two terror cells in Germany and one in Russia. Initial goals of the terror cells are to steal money to fund the group, the papers say.

“Killing infidel venture capitalists, hacking banks through bank accounts, bank robberies or robberies of places that are pre-studied. After any operation of this kind, we will send the money as we procure it,” according to a letter obtained by The Sunday Times.

The terror cells are also tasked with committing attacks, including vehicle-ramming operations that listed the 2015 Paris attacks and “Manhattan attack” as inspiration. Letters obtained by

In another letter to Baghdadi in December, an ISIS commander named Abu Taher al-Tajiki lists possible targets.

“We will tell you here in our letter the targets that we will hit, Allah willing, and they are targets that will destroy the economic world in Europe and spread horror in the hearts of the enemies of Allah,” he wrote.

Two operations that were to take place 10 to 20 days after the initial letter was sent included targeting a high-speed train in Germany and an oil pipeline in a petroleum refinery near the Swiss city of Base to cause “economic disaster.”

Days after the December letter to ISIS leaders was written, an ISIS flag was discovered near train tracks in Berlin where overhead wires had been damaged, according to the Sunday Times.

A man was arrested in Vienna last month in connection with the Berlin incident and another in Bavaria in October, where a high-speed train hit a steel cable pulled across the tracks when traveling between Nuremberg and Munich.

A conductor had mistaken the sound for a shortened circuit until authorities found the wire that was stretched across the train’s path and wooden wedges were placed on the tracks, DW reported at the time. No refinery attack was ever reported in Switzerland.

Officials believe that the incidents show ISIS supporters across Europe are still linked with the terror group’s remaining leadership in Syria and Iraq, and not just “lone wolf” suspects that may be inspired to commit attacks.

The letters also show that ISIS is still committed to attacks across Europe, with a new pledge of allegiance for prospective members.

“We are your soldiers in Europe, we see what the enemies of Allah do to our Muslim brothers in the home of Islam by killing and bombardment and destruction of houses,” one of the documents read. “And we, oh Emir of Believers, are under your command and subject to your orders and your sword that which you strike with the enemies of Allah in Europe.”
