Then you put it back in so people can hear you when you're in trouble. There's been one arrest over a Southside attack. Other predators are still on the loose. It's extremely hard because we haven't had any independent witnesses to help us with the identification other than the victim. The Brisbane community has vowed to work just as hard as the police until these attackers are caught. So far Crimestoppers has received almost 500 phone calls

Emma Dallimore, Ten News. Actor Matt Newton has been charged with assaulting his former partner. The 29-year-old son of Bert and Patti Newton is accused of assaulting and threatening ex-girlfriend Brooke Satchwell, a former 'Neighbours' star. The offences allegedly happened after the couple ended their 5-year romance last year. Matt Newton spent 11 hours in custody following his arrest. He's now dating the daughter of actor Barry Otto, 19-year-old Gracie. Her family rallied around him today. Newton will face a Sydney court on Wednesday.

The search for a fisherman missing after a boating accident, that's next. And a warning on soy products - why they could be putting cancer patients at risk. It's a really big tendency that you think, "Oh, if something's good, more must be good for me."

And that's definitely not the case.

The search for a fisherman missing off southern Sydney is continuing. The 46-year-old man was fishing when his boat overturned this morning. Emergency crews found his fishing companion, his 26 year old nephew, and winched him to safety by rescue helicopter. He is in a stable condition. Police believe the missing man was not wearing a life jacket when the boat capsized. A 14-year-old Adelaide girl is in a critical condition suffering head injuries after a jetski collision on the River Murray. The teenager was riding with a 16-year-old friend when their two skis crashed. Police believe they were floating in the river for at least half an hour before being rescued. A passer-by in a boat noticed two jetskis were unaccompanied and just drifting. Then they were alerted to a young female in distress in the water assisting another female who had even worse injuries. The other girl was released from hospital this afternoon.

The great deserts of Australia have claimed two more lives. The bodies of two men have been found after a massive air and ground east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia. Police say the pair, aged 45 and 69, left Kalgoorlie on Boxing Day to drive to a remote Aboriginal community in the Great Victoria Desert. Police are still at the scene near the Trans-Australia Railway Line and say it appears both men died of thirst after their 4-wheel drive broke down. A shock finding on the potential downside of soy products. The Cancer Council warning some could actually make tumours grow. For years even medical experts have been telling us the health benefits of soy products, particularly for those battling cancer, like Julie Callaghan. I've been to a couple of seminars where perhaps they've said soy-based products are absolutely fine and that the make-up of soy-based products is beneficial. But not any more. Soy foods contain something called phytoestrogen, and these phtyoestrogens do have the potential to stimulate tumour growth and they can actually interfere with some of the breast cancer treatment. The Cancer Council looked at global studies over the past 10 years. It found soy foods, like tofu and milk, can be great for healthy people. People who are eating a lot of soy foods - it can protect against developing breast or prostate cancer. But it's now advising women already with breast cancer to steer clear of the much more powerful soy supplements, saying they could be dangerous. It's a really big tendency that you think, "If something's good, more, must be good for me," and that's definitely not the case. Julie's now ruled supplements out of her diet but will continue eating soy foods. The Breast Cancer Institute is also encouraging people not to shy away from the benefits of natural soy products. You hear one thing one day and something different the next day so I think if it works for your body, just go for it. Ali Donaldson, Ten News. An environmental disaster off Norway - an oil tanker has broken up after running aground. The Cypriot ship split in two when it hit rocks, leaking hundreds of thousands of tonnes of oil into the sea. All 25 crew members were airlifted off the stricken vessel. Part of it was then towed into port. The other half was left to sink in rough seas. A major clean-up operation is under way to try to contain the spill. Environmental groups fear the fuel could drift to a nearby bird sanctuary. The families of two young boys abducted years apart are celebrating after both were found alive. Shawn Hornbeck - who disappeared four years ago - was found by chance as police searched for the other missing child. Shawn Hornbeck's mum can't stop hugging him. His stepdad is stunned. The last time we saw him, he was yay tall and 11 years old. Once I saw the face it was like, "Oh, my God. That's my son." 4.5 years after he disappeared riding a bike near his home, Shawn Hornbeck was found less than 60 miles away in this apartment in the suburbs of St Louis. Shawn told his family he'd been there all along. Also found in the apartment, 13-year-old Ben Ownby. After he disappeared Monday, his parents launched an all-out search. We're just ecstatic - don't want to let him go, or out of our sight. Police arrested 41-year-old Michael Devlin, a pizza shop manager and part-time funeral home worker.

He's charged with first degree kidnapping, though the FBI says, based on what they found in Devlin's apartment,

federal charges may be next. Neighbours in the apartment complex say they'd seen Shawn Hornbeck around and assumed he was Devlin's son. It's just mind-boggling

that it was that easy to hide someone in plain sight. Now the boys can get back to life as they left it - one after 4 days, the other after 4.5 years.

The gambler - the king of spin turns his hand to Australia's biggest poker game. That's next. Also, the illness that forced Kylie to cut short a concert on her Showgirl tour. And selling Australia to the world - Terri Irwin becomes our new tourism ambassador.

This program is captioned live. An Adelaide man's been charged with endangering the lives of two children found alone in a car outside a southern suburbs hotel.

The children, aged 18 months and 3 years, were taken to hospital and checked for heat exhaustion. The 42-year-old man is in police custody and will appear in court tomorrow. It's alleged he'd earlier left the children in the family van outside another hotel. An Adelaide woman has died in a house fire while neighbours dragged her husband from the blaze. The fire tore though the home so ferociously investigators concede the exact cause will never be known. The 47-year-old man woke to find his house on fire, his wife trapped in the lounge room. Neighbours smashed the window to free him from his bedroom. Broke the window, got him out. I put my hand through it. He's lucky to be alive. Bloodied, singed and covered in soot, the man escaped with smoke inhalation. By the time emergency crews arrived, it was too late. The building was too unstable to gain access.

Extremely tense situation. At that stage we knew another person was inside and we tried desperately, and unfortunately in vain, to get that person out.

Roaring, roaring. Very roaring. From here to the house you could feel the fire.

All the investigators have determined

is that the fire started in the lounge room. Given the significant damage, they'll never know exactly how the blaze occurred. Neighbours couldn't hear a smoke alarm.

They say the couple, both pensioners in their 40s, kept to themselves.

Very quiet. Don't see them for days. The man is in a stable condition in hospital. Brett Clappis, Ten News.

Shane Warne is being lured by a new competition and there's no cricket pitch in sight. The spin king taking to the tables at the Aussie Millions poker championship. But the cricketer wasn't holding his breath for a big win. Very poor. I'm not very good. I'll probably be out in about five minutes, I reckon. The tournament also attracting tennis ace Mark Philippoussis and 'American Pie' star Shannon Elizabeth. But world poker champ Joe Hachem was the real draw card for the crowd. It's a poker environment out there. I wouldn't get the same reception at the MCG, I'm sure, if Warnie and I were out there. More than 700 players will take part this year, vying for a prize pool of $7 million.

Kylie Minogue has been forced to cut short a concert in England because she's sick with the flu.

The Aussie pop diva only managed to get through half of her scheduled 2-hour performance in Manchester before pulling the plug. The 38-year-old is currently on her 'Showgirl' comeback tour, following treatment for breast cancer. Her spokesman says this latest illness is not linked to her recovery from the disease.

Crazy scenes in Los Angeles today as Victoria Beckham flew in for a spot of house hunting. The former pop star and footballer's wife fought off the paparazzi after flying in from London. Her husband David Beckham has just signed a multimillion-dollar contract to play for the Los Angeles Galaxy. During her flying visit, the one-time Posh Spice will look at schools for their three children. She's also bound to catch up with her new best friend Katie Holmes.

Steve Irwin's widow Terri has been named our new tourism ambassador. Four months after the Crocodile Hunter's death, the American-born wildlife lover will now be selling Australia to the world.

Australia's A-list stars hit the red carpet for the G'Day USA gala ball. And shining amongst the glitz and glamour,

Australia's newest tourism ambassador, Terri Irwin. She'll be the best ambassador in the world. We should be very grateful as a country she is prepared to do that for us.

Who better. This is the top of that

game you've got here she'd be the perfect person. In previous years they've all shared the red carpet with Steve Irwin, this year, though, they'll help honour him with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Terri Irwin accepted the award. Instead of tears, there was laughter. Crikey, have a go at this. If I had a dollar for every time he said that. And she vowed to do her late husband proud. As the new ambassador for Australia, I will do my best. I am not Steve Irwin. His good mate Russell Crowe and actress Naomi Watts were honoured with entertainment awards. But the real show-stopper of the G'Day USA celebrations will be tomorrow when Bindi makes her US stage debut with the Wiggles.
