PHOENIX -- Baltimore County police have asked for the public's help in finding the 34-year-old son of a retired District Court judge missing since Monday.

Aris Rellas , of the 12800 block of Stone Eagle Road , was last seen by his father, retired Judge John Rellas, leaving their home Monday morning for a business trip to Reston, Va., police said.

Rellas, a white man, 5 feet 6 inches tall with brown hair and eyes, was driving a 1989 Toyota Camry with Maryland license plates 839 AEH. He weighs 140 pounds and was wearing a gray suit. Anyone with information should call police at 887-2198.

A Rockville pilot said he was more embarrassed than hurt after making an emergency landing in a Westminster hayfield yesterday about a mile south of the Carroll County Airport.

The pilot, Sherman Francisco, 63, who has flown for more than XTC 40 years, said his single-engine 1971 Beechcraft Bonanza "just stopped running" soon after he had taken off from the airport about 11: 15 a.m.

Francisco, who had a small cut on the bridge of his nose, refused medical treatment at the scene in the 300 block of Old Bachman Valley Road.

PERRYVILLE -- State police and the transportation authority opened $1 million joint offices yesterday at the Susquehanna River Bridge toll plaza on Interstate 95.

The two-story building has 20 cameras that will monitor the toll plaza, rest areas and some sections of Interstate 95 near the Harford and Cecil county line, state police said.

The developers of a proposed rubble landfill near Havre de Grave must go through Harford County's zoning appeals process before suing to overturn a Harford County law blocking the landfill, the Court of Appeals said yesterday.

Maryland Reclamation Associates of Churchville purchased the site for the proposed 68-acre Gravel Hill landfill in 1989, based on initial county approval. MRA sued after a newly elected County Council rescinded that approval and established minimum acreage requirements, setbacks from homes and other restrictions in 1991. MRA appealed a ruling by Harford Circuit Judge Cypert O. Whitfill in 1994 that the county acted within its authority.

But Judge John S. Eldridge said yesterday in a unanimous, 35-page ruling that MRA should have requested either a variance or a zoning exception before going to court.
