Last Workers Move To Mark Center

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- The roads will be more crowded Tuesday morning, especially at Interstate 395 at Seminary Road. All 6,400 Mark Center employees will be in the complex and that could equal a hurry and wait scenario.

The final round of federal employees move into the Mark Center Tuesday, commuting to the Alexandria building on top of the estimated 200,000 who travel on I-395 every workday.

Virginia lawmakers have long lobbied against this plan because of the traffic problems it would cause. Congress struck a deal with the Army to provide 2,000 parking spaces.

Fort Belvoir Woman Found

FORT BELVOIR, Va. (WUSA) -- A young mother is safe tonight after apparently spending the night wandering the woods of Fort Belvoir.

Heather Beatty, 27, a mother of two little girls, disappeared around 5 p.m. New Year's Day. She was spotted walking along Gunston Road on the Ft. Belvoir Base at around 2 p.m. Monday.

The 20-hour search took place on ground, in the air, and on the Potomac River. The Army Soldier reported his wife missing at 7:30 p.m Sunday.

His concern about her walking off into the woods from their home on the Fort Belvoir Base prompted the massive search. It included 40 uniforms soldiers, the Coast Guard, and Fairfax County emergency teams.

 A team of five was seen searching just outside Ft. Belvoir's Walker Gate, a few miles south of Mt. Vernon, and not far from where the family lives. Heather Beatty, is being medically evaluated after being found Monday afternoon, officials said.
