Lt. Ewell Hunt with the Franklin County Sheriff's department says they received information as to where the couple was staying - and last night they arrested them at this home on Sally Ridge Road. Police say Housman and Markman are from the same town in Pennsylvania that the victim is from - but that they have friends and relatives in the area and visit here often. At the trailer where the couple was staying, police located a second car they say may be involved in White's disappearance from Pennsylvania. Police have charged the couple with possession of a stolen vehicle.

The question today is "Who won last night's Presidential debate"?
Several instant public opinion polls rated Republican George W- Bush higher than Vice- President Al Gore.
But a C- B-S poll rated them about even.
Here's Jennifer Jones with a wrap- up of last night's face- off in Winston Salem.

(( Locator: Winston-Salem, NC With the spectre of war lingering in the Middle East, it was foreign policy that took center stage first at last night's Presidential Debate in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. And-there was an almost friendly exchange between Vice President Al Gore and Texas Governor George W. Bush.

SOT: V.P. Al Gore/D-Presidential Nominee

"We need to insist instructions that Arafat halt some of the provocative acts of violence that have been going on."

SOT: Gov. George W. Bush/R-Presidential Nominee

"I appreciate the way the administration has calmed the tension. Like the Vice President I call on Chairman Arafat to have his people pull back"
The cordial tone held for much of the debate, which in many ways resembled a Sunday morning talk show. Only at the end, when the Texas Governor was asked about the accuracy of some recent remarks by the Vice President, did the exchange turn sharp.

SOT: "I think anyone would have a hard time explaining that clearly in a

way that makes sense to the average person..That's the kind of exaggeration I was just talking about.I wasn't the one having trouble explaining it."
After the debate, Bush running mate Dick Cheney tried to put to rest concerns that the Governor is not ready to lead the nation.

SOT: Dick Cheney/R-V.P. Nominee

"He's quick, he's decisive we all want to be part of his team"
Gore's number two man Sen. Joseph Lieberman meanwhile--believes in the end this tight race will come down to money.

SOT: Sen. Joe Lieberman/D- V.P. Nominee

"We are the best to continue the progress and prosperity and we have much better ideas for how to use it."
Stand-Up: Jennifer Jones/CBS News Today, Gore campaigns in Milwaukee, while Bush stumps in Pennsylvania. The two will meet again Tuesday in St. Louis for the third and final debate. Jennifer Jones, CBS News, Winston Salem, NC.
