(PORTLAND, Ore.) Hello Portlanders! It's Thursday, Aug. 4 - Here's your daily round up of all the news happening in the City of Roses.

1. Newborn infant reported missing from Portland

An infant that the Oregon Department of Human Services, Child Welfare Division believes may be at risk was reported missing from Portland on Wednesday. Kanon Zee, a newborn infant, along with his mother Kara Zee and father Jonathan Daria from Portland are all said to be missing. ODHS is currently searching for the infant to assess his safety.

Kara and Jonathan are believed to be traveling in a 2014 Audi with Arizona license plate #FCA3DGA or in a white Dodge Ram truck with Arizona license plate #0AA3NE. The two are known to frequent a homeless encampment around Northeast 122nd Street and Northeast Halsey Street. They may be planning to leave Oregon or the country.

Anyone who sees them or has information on their whereabouts is asked to call 911, local law enforcement or the Oregon Child Abuse Hotline at 1-855-503-SAFE.

2. Portland forecasted to see high temperatures again this weekend

Last week’s heatwave brought in eight days of 90-degree temperatures or higher, and a new record for consecutive days of 95 degrees or above at seven days. Portland has experienced two heat waves so far this summer, one three-day stretch at the end of June and last week’s prolonged high temperatures.

Despite just getting over the last heat wave, Portland is forecasted to get temperatures in the lower to mid-90s Saturday through Monday. August is typically the warmest month of the summer, with an average mean temperature of 70.6 degrees, meaning Portland could see even more high heat in the coming weeks.

3. Portion of proceeds from Portland Pickles' Friday game will go toward Alzheimer's research

On Friday, 50% of the proceeds from ticket sales for the Portland Pickles Baseball game will go to the Portland Walk to End Alzheimer’s. The game will take place at Walker Stadium (4727 Southeast 92nd Avenue) at 7:05 p.m.
