His wife is waiting anxiously, hoping no news is good news, while in Iraq, a senior tribal leader has offered to help authorities trying to secure Mr Wood's release. We continue, at every possible level, to do what we can, and that includes, of course, talking with people in Iraq. I won't go into details of that for reasons you'll understand. Australian Mufti Sheik al-Hilali has reportedly arrived in Baghdad. He hopes to lobby for the engineer's release. The Wood family has launched a website in English and Arabic, appealing for his release and pleading for information on his whereabouts. Police have issued a plea to help solve a disturbing string of disappearances - mothers vanishing without a trace and leaving husbands and children wondering why. More than a month after the sudden disappearance of his wife Lisa, Ken Franks is clinging to hope. Very beautiful, loving mother. The 36-year-old mother of three missing with no word since leaving for her daily walk and never coming home, her children barely coping. I've just got no idea why, how or why this all happened. Her bank accounts remain untouched, with several unconfirmed sightings. Lisa's mother admits her daughter was depressed, and is growing ever fearful with every passing day. I just want to know she's alive and safe, and, you know, just a phone call to say, "Mum, I'm here but I need some time out." Police fear it could be the latest in a string of cases where stressed mothers simply walk out on their families to start again. At least three other similar disappearances are under investigation in NSW. It is a situation that has occurred before - it's not uncommon, but we're certainly open-minded as to the circumstances. As families like the Franks wait for word on their loved one, psychologists point to post-natal depression as a possible cause. Experts say it can strike up to five years after a child is born and urge professional treatment for any signs of stress that could force a mother to ignore her maternal instinct and walk out on her children. The Franks issuing a public plea for Lisa to come home. We do care for her very much and we love her, and deeply need to see her again. Deborah Knight, Ten News. A group of wrinkled old rockers is about to do it all again - or at least give it a good go. Yes, the Rolling Stones have announced another world tour, not quite three years after their last tour. But Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie seem determined to defy their nickname - the Strolling Bones. We hope it's going to be a wonderful summer of rock'n'roll and we hope we can be right in there. While it looks like being a really global event, down-under isn't on their list yet. If the banks are making so much money why are jobs going? To have held true to the brand name to then today realise that either you or 2,000 others of your colleagues are up for the chop is completely unacceptable. When we come back - the National Australia Bank reveals why it's swinging the axe. An Australian snooker star caught up in a match fixing scandal. He says there's another side to this story and we'll tell you what that is. Then in 'Sports Tonight' - the bizarre accident that may rule Lleyton Hewitt out of the French Open.

you could get lucky? tickets Lottery ticket absolutely free! This program is captioned live. The National Australia Bank has confirmed plans to cut 2,000 jobs over the next two years. Union bosses are furious, saying the bank has turned its back on workers who helped it through tough times. Chief executive John Stewart is trying to restore the National Australia Bank's earning capacity. Results released today suggest he's performing well which is why the announcement 1,000 jobs have been canned and another 1,000 will be also be axed, shocked workers at the NAB's Melbourne headquarters. We've put our trust and our faith in the new leadership team to take us forward, and to be rewarded with positive figures and jobs to be cut just doesn't seem right. To have held true to the brand name to then today realise that either you or 2,000 others of your colleagues are up for the chop is completely unacceptable. Mr Stewart says inflexible middle managers are the ones to go, blaming previous bosses for maintaining too many useless office positions. Because we have to become efficient, because this was a very inefficient and bureaucratic organisation. The union is accusing the bank of making plans to ship jobs off shore and wants the Federal Government to intervene. The bank says this is simply not true and points out it is also ready to cut over 2,000 more jobs Budget-busy Peter Costello spoke at a Press Club function today, delivering a welfare-to-work slide show, trying to deflect attention away from the day's major sponsor, refusing to speak for or against the NAB's retrenchments.

about his playing future. In a statement: The Australian Snooker Council says it's unwanted bad news. As far as I'm aware, this is the first time it's happened in the game of snooker. 3-time world billiard champion Robbie Foldvari has played with Hann and isn't surprised at the attention.

Fosters also makes its beer brands at the centre of a match-fixing scandal says to support its claims against Quinten Hann. He's known as the bad boy of world snooker, and this secret video hasn't helped Quinten Hann's image. In the deal, he stood to make ?50,000 for throwing a match at the China Open. Hann went on to lose the game but the man he dealt with was a reporter from the 'Sun' newspaper who exposed the scandal. It's been a difficult year for Hann - just two days ago, he was acquitted of sex assault charges against two English women. The world snooker body is demanding answers from the 27-year-old. But, in the video released by the 'Sun' Hann doesn't appear to care
