showed her at stglades middle school.katie watson/mother:"i got chills all over my body and i was like okay, i know that was a scam but that's like every parent's worst nightmare is to hear that your kid has been kidnapped."katie's husband google search showed the number was from mexico.the f-b-i has been tracking this scam for years.between 2013 and 2015, these schemes came from mexican prisons.jailed fraudsters would obtain cell phones and search area codes online --in this case, they knew enough about katie to give her a scare.katie watson/mother:"that's really part of what gave me the chills, was somebody calling me by name that i don't know. that was unsettling."

(ken) an estimated three million americans live with a peanut or tree nut allergy ... putting them at risk of accidental exposure that could be life-threatening.(pam) a new study, published in the new england journal of medicine, suggests promising results for an allergy treatment in the works. jeremy roth has the details in tonight's health minute. a peanut powder-filled capsule could be the key to treating peanut allergies ...gradually exposing people with allergies to allergens could reduce their risk of a severe reaction.researchers across 10 countries studied 551 participants with peanut allergies between age four and 55.most -- 496 -- were between
ages four and 17.three- quarters of the participants received increasing doses of the experimental treatment -- the rest received a placebo. side effects pushed 11-percent of the participants to drop out of the study.after a year, each remaining participant took an exit challenge -- eating the equivalent of two peanuts under a doctor's supervision.two thirds of child participants tolerated the challenge without a severe reaction.half of those actually tolerated twice as much -- a four-peanut dose. 10-percent of children receiving treatment required an epi-pen during the exit challenge.53-percent of the placebo group required an epi- pen during the exit challenge. experts warn this isn't a cure for allergies --patients treatment shouldn't expect to be able to eat whatever they want.but researchers believe increasing tolerance for peanuts can reduce the risk of a severe reaction.for today's i'm jeremy roth.
