Springfield Police said a four-year-old Springfield boy who had been reported missing has been found safe.  

Matthew Bivens had been reported taken by his noncustodial mother, Rosemary Bivens, on January 3.  Police said they feared for the boy's well being because his mother was homeless, had a history of drug use and no adequate means of caring for her son.  Matthew's father, Michael Nutt, has sole physical custody.

Winter precipitation is falling in the Ozarks, and the City of Springfield Public Works crews started getting ready before it began.  According to the city, crews started pre-treating bridges and hills Monday morning on arterial and priority routes.  More than 9,000 tons of salt is waiting to be used on the roads this winter, and vehicles are inspected and ready to go.
