and kyron's case. new developments in the search for missing 7-year-old oregon boy kyron moreman horman as investigators plan to make an arrest early this week. "early" this monday morning, arrest early this week. "early" this monday morning, july 26, 2010. captioning funded by cbs the a it is a glorious and almost even, could you say, cool morning? >> it doesn't -- it is a tiny bit crisp out there, not too humid. >> good morning, e everyone. i'm harry smith. >> i'm erika hill in for maggie rodriguez on maternity leave. we have a terrible story out of arizona. a car accident, a family is told their daughter died in a car accident. they are planning her funeral, they are starting the process of learning to cope without their daughter, then they are told a week later we are wrong. your daughter wasn't killed. awful.
7:02 am
we are going to bring you the latest on that case coming up this morning. also, we want to get to this. the stop story this morning, the white house blasting the release of over 90,000 u.s. military records on the war of afghanistan. this is the largest leak in u.s. history. mark phillips is in london this morning with the latest. mark, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, erica. this is not a wikileak, this is a wiki torrent. a dell luge of field report logs from units on the ground in afghanistan. much of it is released by the wikileak site. it paints a grim picture of the way the war is going. the release contains more than 90,000 reports sent by operational units in afghanistan from 2004 to the end of 2009. cataloged on the wikileaks website. among the allegations that elements of pakistan's intelligence services supposed allies of the u.s. have met with taliban leaders to plot strategy
7:03 am
for the insurgency. that death squads have been operating to try to kill taliban leaders. that the taliban have been using surface to air missiles to target u.s. and allied aircraft. that civilian casualties have been even higher than admitted. in a statement, president obama's national security adviser general james jones called the threat a leak to national security, which could put the lives of americans and our partners at risk. wikileaks' founder told the guardian newspaper there's no such thing as a fact that shouldn't be public. >> we'll show you the true nature of this war and then the public from afghanistan and other nations can see what's really going on and take steps to address the problems. >> reporter: wikileaks released them to "the new york times," the guardian here in britain, and to "the weekly" and shares
7:04 am
maximum public opinion. joining us now is juan. as we look at the things mark outlined in the piece in the documents, secret teams to hunt down taliban leaders, the high numbers of civilian casualties, the allegations of all this, how damaging is this to u.s. and allied efforts in afghanistan? >> well, good morning, erica. it is damaging in part because of the timing. there's angst and ang shety about the afghan strategy. questions as to what's happening in a year's time when we are set to begin withdrawal of the troops. and an ongoing debate in europe about their role in afghanistan. this set of raw reports will add flavor and certainly fuel to the fire of the debate as to whether or not it is winnable in afghanistan. >> were you surprised at all by what was in these 90,000-plus documents? >> well, erica, i was surprised
7:05 am
by the volume to be honest, but the substance is not new. for those who have been following the debate about afghanistan for a long time, those like myself who have worked on the issues, it is not new. the fact that the taliban has been gaining in strength, the fact that we have teams hunting al qaeda and afghan leadership, we expect it. civilian casualties has been a problem. and the weakness of the partners, the afghan national police in the corruption there as well as suspicions about the pakistani intelligence work with the taliban. all this has been known. certainly part of the public discourse, but what this does is it certainly gives eight rawness to it given the reports and will feed the debate. >> and the way in which it was released, you mentioned the time,s is there some ulterior motive behind this? >> well, you know, in reading what the wikileaks founder has said, it is clear to me he has an agenda. he's trying to effect a debate. he talks about curing injustices, so he certainly has some sort of agenda here. recall that the wikileaks
7:06 am
recently put out the footage of the apache helicopter hitting individuals, killing individuals, and it seems like wikileaks is fueling the debate here to get out of afghanistan. >> they also claim to have an day decisional $15,000 documents. any information as to who may have leaked the documents or why? >> it is not clear. the military arrested a private a few weeks ago who is charged with leaking certain documented to wikileaks. it is not clear if he's the source of these documents, but what's troubling is not only wikileaks have these documents, think may have additional documents. they may have other communications sensitive and internal to the u.s. government, so we'll just have to see and unfortunately hold our breath. >> we'll be calling you if and when we find that out, thank you, as always. also in afghanistan,
7:07 am
breaking news this morning. a tragic end to the search for two missing u.s. sailors. the body of one has been found while the other sailor may have been captured by the taliban. cbs news chief national correspondent david martin is at the pentagon with more. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, harry. the body of one of the missing sailors has been recovered, but the whereabouts of the second remain unknown and with each passing hour the chances of finding him grow slimmer. with july threatening to become the deadliest month for u.s. troops in afghanistan, the taliban website boised they ambushed the sailors' suv in an attempt to capture them alive. when the two men fought back, the taliban opened fire killing one and capturing the other. presumably, the man whose picture was also posted on the web, but that does not explain what the two men were doing there in the first place. members of a team training afghans, the to left their base near kabul on friday for the
7:08 am
relatively short drive to camp eggers, yet their badly shot up vehicle was found 80 miles south of kabul. why they strayed so far and why they drove intoal taliban-controlleder the toy by themselves, a blatant violation of security feed yours, remain unknown. this specialist, the only other american servicemen in enemy hands, also broke the rules. he walked away from his combat post 13 months ago and has since been seen only in taliban video. if either bergdohl or the missing sailor are found, they have some explaining to do, but now the tough mission is to find them. it is now 98 days after the deepwater horizon exploded causing the worst environmental disaster in history. it appears embattled ceo tony hayward may soon be out of a job. kelly kob yell louisiana is in
7:09 am
grand isle with the latest. >> reporter: they will debate the future of tony hayward today, but all indications are that the decision has been made and he is out. from the start it seemed tony hayward could not get it right as black oil oozed into louisiana marshes, hayward boldly predicted the environmental impact from the spill would be modest. then there was this. >> there's no one who wants this thing over more than i do. i would like my life back. >> reporter: that comment stung the most, especially for the families of the men killed in the explosion. hayward's testimony before congress in mid-june was seen as evasive. >> i'm not prepared to draw conclusions about this accident until such time has the investigation concluded. >> reporter: two days later he went sailing on his 52-foot yacht off the british coast. today bp's board will try to reverse the damage by relieving him as ceo for mississippi-native bob dudley. if fired, hayward would keep his
7:10 am
$18 million salary and pension benefits. >> there's no doubt that he is going. it will be announced at the very latest on tuesday. >> reporter: it comes as bp's work undersea is speeding ahead. the weather never turned rough enough to stop two ships from watching bp's well over the weekend. it is still in good shape, and there's no talk of collecting oil any more. just stopping it for good. >> you have to prioritize what you are going to do, and obviously doing that pipe into the relief well is the most important item we are working on. >> reporter: with clear skies and no storms on the horizon, bp could begin to be ready plugging the well from the top, the static kill, as early as this week. though the official timeline is more conservative. >> in the week of the first of august is when we will attempt to do the static kill. >> reporter: cleanup crews are due back along the coast today after this weekend weather delay, but the size of those
7:11 am
crews could soon begin to change. even before the storm they were finding less oil to skim on the surface. if that trind trend continues, bp and the coast guard will start to scale back on the size of these crews. >> kelly cobiella, thank you. now here's harry. joining us from washington is massachusetts congressman ed markey who chairs the house subcommittee on energy and the environment. congressman, good morning. >> thank you, glad to be with you. >> what is your reaction to ceo tony hayward finally losing his job? >> well, he was the commander in chief of bp. he helped to create the culture that shortchanged safety, he was in charge when bp was saying that only 1,000 barrels of oil per day were going into the gulf of mexico. when they said only 5,000 barrels of oil per day were going into the gulf of mexico.
7:12 am
we know that it is 35,000 to 60,000 barrels per day. that delayed the response. and we know that his attitude all along was to get his life back and limit liability for bp when his first concern should have been the livelihood of the people in the gulf of mexico. >> bob dudley is supposed to take his place. already we've gotten reaction from kenneth feinberg who is the arbitrator who has been put in charge of the dispersement of the $20 billion fund. and feinberg says this is a good idea, this is a good move. what do you think? >> well, you know, bob dudley was part of the team all along. and, in fact, he's the one who announced that they would have the relief well completed by july 27th, which also happened to be the day when the quarterly financial reports of bp were due. so that was too much of a
7:13 am
coincidence, again, in terms of limiting liability, increasing the share value of bp. so i'm hopeful that mr. dudley will be more responsible, but total change in the culture of this company is necessary. >> we are so, i guess, hopeful is the best word to use as we look at the picture from down at the bottom of the sea and see no more oil coming out, but this is so really just a phase of this entire process because there's still more oil in the water, and there's tens of thousands of lives of people who have been affected by this. >> well, remember, even if you can't see as much oil on the surface, hundreds of thousands of gas of oil of chemicals was shot into the oil as it came out of the well. as a result, under the surface of the ocean there are millions and millions of gallons of oil with this chemical dispersant
7:14 am
attached to it. and so, yes, the consequences of this spill are going to go on for months and potentially for years. and everyone should be aware that this is something that is not going to end for a long time. >> congressman ed markey, we appreciate your time this morning. thank you. >> thank you. >> it turns out to be a busy news day. here's bethany nguyen with a look at the other headlines. >> good morning to you at home. along the east coast this morning, people are assessing the damage from severe storms. at least two people died of more than 300,000 customers without power from new york to washington, d.c. kristen fisher of our d.c. station wusa has the latest. >> reporter: good morning, betty. these severe storms knocked down trees and took out pour to hundreds of thousands of people up and down the east coast, but washington, d.c., and its surrounding suburbs were the hardest hit, especially right
7:15 am
where i am right now in montgomery county. the woman driving this minivan was killed when high winds roared through maryland. another woman in the van was injured. all along the eastern seaboard temperatures in the high 90s gave way to a fast moving storm that caused heavy damage. in new york this storm brought down dozens of trees, one crashing this car. no injuries, but some residents thought it was more than just a rainstorm. >> it sounded like a little tornado was happening over here, because within seconds this big tree fell down and this one just missed the house by a couple inches. so it got bad. >> reporter: the nation's capital was hardest hit. >> we have a wire down over there. we have the street over there blocked by a tree that came down on a house and firefighters are over there right now. >> reporter: this morning hundreds of thousands in the area are without power. 262,000 in montgomery county, maryland, 43,000 without power in baltimore, 38,000 in northern virginia. and the cleanup has just begun. officials in the area say the
7:16 am
damage is so severe and so widespread that as of now they have no timetable as to when most places will be back online. in aspen hill, maryland, i'm kristen fisher for cbs news. there are also severe storms in the midwest and rising floodwaters caused an iowa dam to break. cynthia bowers is in delhi, iowa, with the latest. good morning, cynthia. >> reporter: good morning, betty. this concrete dam had stood since the 1920s when it was built for hydroelectric power. the lake it formed had provided generations of iowa families with an affordable getaway, until saturday when a foot of rain upstream came crashing down taking a 30-foot section of concrete out. in a matter of minutes, a 9-mile long lake was reduced to a puddle. 1/3 of the 900 homes took in water. 50 are total losses. the sad news for folks here is in a recession finding the money to rebuild this thing may be next to impossible. no loss of life is the only good
7:17 am
news here. betty? >> all right, cbs's cynthia bowers in iowa. thank you for that. we'll check in now with dave price as we get a first check on thank you dave. good morning. good monday morning. here is a lookout side boy another cloudy start to the day. coat tower is -- keith tower is

7:31 am
celebrating the news but such heartache as another family stunned with grief. first, we want to get you updated in the search for missing 7-year-old kyron horman. after getting thousands of tips, the investigation now appears to are gone full circle. priya david clemens is in portland. >> reporter: investigators have fielded 3300 tips from around the world and saturday they ended up back at skyline elementary school. police say the person who saw him last, his stepmother, terri horman, could hold the key to bringing him home. investigators returned to skyline elementary school over the weekend, searching for clues that might lead them to kyron horman. >> he's still out there. he's still out there. we just need to find him. >> reporter: officials say they've made significant progress in the criminal investigation, but are not releasing any details. in a written response to
7:32 am
journalist questions, they say kyron's stepmother, terri horman, quote, has been cooperative and other times she has not. since hiring a defense attorney on june 28th, she's been silent. >> if the investigative team found out what happened to kyron, terri horman would be arrested imminently. >> reporter: kyron's parents have begged terri to talk. they're also pleading with her close friends, dede spicher to cooperate. they say she's giving terri advice not in the best interest of their son. last week the fbi searched spicher's home. >> give your side of the story, please. >> reporter: new questions are still emerging about terri horman's actions the day her stepson disappeared. several hours remain unexplained. she claimed she left kyron at school at 8:45 and at 11:39 she went to the gym. in that three-hour gap, she said she went shopping and driving her 19-month-old daughter around to soothe an earache. but that has not been
7:33 am
corroborated by anyone. >> i can tell you what i ate that day and she can't tell you where she was. >> reporter: she posted kyron's picture on her facebook page that afternoon. kyron was reported missing seven hours after he vanished. >> all these things add up to a human being that doesn't make sense. >> reporter: now, the multnomah county sheriff is expected to speak tomorrow after several weeks of silence, which has many here hoping for answers or a break in the case soon. erica? >> priya, thanks. priya david clemens in portland this morning. joining us from portland oregon, bruce mccain, former captain of the multnomah county sheriff's office, just retired last year. >> thanks for having me. >> there are new reports that terri horman told her stepson's teachers that he had a doctor's appointment later that day. she said she alerted them to the
7:34 am
appointment that would happen that following friday. you look at that information and say, there's something that doesn't work here. >> yeah, it's quite significant because this is actually the last day of school, so a doctor's appointment the following friday would are been pretty irrelevant to the school but the critical thing about this june 4th doctor's appointment is that that put the school in a position of not being concerned at all, that kyron was not in his class, wasn't at lunch or the bus that afternoon. so, it looks like at least at this point terri was able to bring kyron to school, establish his presence there, and then perhaps take him away, at least that's the theory they're working on, without the school picking up the phone and call kaine at work, for example. >> we should point out she's not a suspect at this point. as you put that together, you spent many years with the sheriff's department. does that tell you there could be some sort of premeditated plan here? >> well, obviously, that looks like very much would be a planned issue, especially with the deceptive answers she gave later about, gee, i think i
7:35 am
meant june 11th, which is long after school is out. the key is going back, refocusing and reconstructing every hour and minute she spent on june 4th to find out exactly where the holes are in her original story. >> part of that timeline is a three-hour block of time where we're not really sure what was happening between the time she dropped kyron off, the last time she saw him at school, and showed up at the gym. also a 90-minute window that her friend dede spicher is being questioned about. what do you make of those gaps? >> again, those are significant, especially litsch the close relationship between dede and terri. the investigators seem to be putting pressure on terri's closest friends, associates and family to basically tell them, it's time to get on the ride side of this issue. dede right now seems to be on terri's side. that critical 90 minute for both of them is where they seem to be focusing efforts on june 4th. >> dede's home has been searched. kyron's father and mother say she's hampering investigation. the sheriff's department did
7:36 am
recently come out and answer questions from journalists via e-mail. one question that stuck out is whether they have any information to believe whether kyron is alive. they didn't answer it correctly. >> that is significant partly because of this e-mail question. again, this has been a very strange and frustrating public relations piece for my former employer. what we have, they took three days to carefully parse those answers. you're absolutely right, erica, is the question is, do you have any information to believe he's alive? they could not bring themselves to say yes. the best they could do is, we continue to hope. that put the sheriff's office in the same position as thousands of others looking for kyron. >> based on your experience, the number of years you spent with the department, what do you think may have happened? >> bottom line is kyron is either alive and dead, and that's the blunt truth right now. so, right now the key is to try to put pressure on terri and perhaps through an arrest on an
7:37 am
unrelated criminal episode. this would be the murder hire for-hire plot. using that could potentially leverage the truth out of both people involved in this. right now, kyron is simply missing and nobody, including investigators, seem to know what happened to him. >> bruce mccain, appreciate your ensight. thank you for being with us. >> thank you, erica. >> i can't look at the picture of that little boy and not think, why would somebody wish this child harm? >> it's true. any child. he's such a sweet, sweet face. >> we have other stories this morning, including this one about the families of two young arizona women in shock after a case of mistaken identity. a week after one family was told their daughter guide in a car crash, they've now been told she still alive. "early show" national correspondent hattie kauffman report. >> reporter: the family of abby guerra spent the last week planning their daughter's student. she and her four friends crashed after their suv suffered a blow outreturning from disneyland.
7:38 am
the guerra family was told abby died at the scene. saturday, six days after the accident, they learned there had been a mixup. that it was 21-year-old marlena cantu who died, and abby was alive and in critical condition in a phoenix hospital. >> i mean, you're ecstatic for one. it's a miracle. but in the same, you feel angry because we've mourned all week. >> reporter: friends of marlena cantu say her family is devastated to learn she is dead. after standing over the bed of a badly injured girl who turned out to be someone else's child. >> disgusted that it happened this way. i'm disgusted it happened at all, but especially this week. >> reporter: over the week enthe guerra family held a car wash to raise money for abby's funeral. now that money will be used to pay her medical expenses and to contribute to the funeral costs of her friend, marlena cantu. hattie kauffman, cbs news, los angeles. >> a similar story in the midwest about a year ago. >> there was a couple years ago,

8:11 am
jordan dropped more than 100 feet and hit the ground at 60 miles an hour. but incredibly when he was rushed to the hospital, jordan was till breathing. >> i just wailed. i think any mother can understand that if you don't know if you're google to lose your child or not. >> his parents spent the next four months at his bedside. >> i think the little things in life you learn to appreciate so much more. the moments you have together realizing that could not have been. >> this is jordan burnham today. >> falling nine stories and surviving is obviously a miracle in itself. >> after 14 surgeries and two and a half years of excruciating rehabilitation. >> my dad said i was literally right under my window. >> you landed right down here. >> he still walks with a cain, but he's back home.
8:12 am
amazingly he's playing his favorite sport. >> did you ever think you'd be back on a golf course again? >> no. i'd be lying to you if i said when i woke up at the worst time that i thought i would be standing here hitting golf balls. the mind has a mind of its own. >> while he continues to heal himself, he knows his mind will never be completely cured. depression remains a daily struggle. >> you still sleep in this bed, inches away from the window. >> right. >> you're okay with that? >> it's a positive thing saying this is a situation that could have ended everything. here i am now in the same spot making a positive difference and living in a positive way. >> reporter: shining a light on the dark world of depression is jordan's new mission. >> please join me in welcoming jordan burnham on the national youth leadership on medicine.

8:14 am
when you're dealing with such an emotionally challenging time in your child's life, they are a teenager, how do you know this is just they are being a teen and don't want me around and there's severe depression. >> you have to look forewarning signs. teenager depression, adult depression is different. teen depression is more irritability, not having interest in things they had interest in before. it's really a shift in the person that you knew more so, so to the nth degree, not just typical irritability in teenagers. you really want to tap in. if your gut is saying i'm worried about my kid, ask the question. >> what is the question, are you depressed? >> i'm worried about you. i notice you're not hanging out with your friends or you're in your room a lot, what's going on. >> suicide is the third leading cause of death. >> among 15 to 24 years old. >> red flag signs here that suicide could be something that's going through their mind. >> there are many but highlight three that might happen. one thing you want to be aware
8:15 am
of, making statements about not being around anymore. are they making statements about, well, when i'm not here, will you miss me when i'm gone. >> you say that, i can't imagine. >> you want to think about that. the other thing, they might start saying good-bye and giving away their prized possessions, giving their mitt to their little brother, saying good-bye to you, their friends. really any acute behavior change, if there's been low level irritability, all of a sudden they are excited and happy. what's going on? have they made the decision. a lot of suicides with teenagers are impulsive. we want to be aware. that's what jordan said. >> are there different things you want to look for with a daughter or son. >> girls attempt suicide up to three times more than boys. boys complete suicide more than three times than girls. method is the thing. if you notice there's depression, you want to be aware of that. boys choose more violent means so we have to be careful of what they have access to. >> and how they approach it.
8:16 am
you mention teen depression and adult depression are two differ things. do you grow out of teen depression? >> most episodes of depression in teenagers last six to nine months. some definitely last longer as jordan highlighted, he's still dealing with it. it's not something you grow out of, but you do want to learn how to deal with it more effectively so you do make better choices and do learn the coping skills you need to survive. >> how difficult is it for someone like jordan to go through this process, sharing. >> it's important for him to have a therapist when he's struggling and work on coping skills. >> reinforce communication with their child no matter how difficult it may be. >> absolutely or how scary. >> always good to have you with us. ahead, helping young adults make their way through the tough economy while keeping an eye on your own finances. this "the early show" on cbs. >> cbs healthwatch sponsored by aveeno, the beauty of nature and science.

in this morning's "moneywatch," helping young adults in this tough economy. according to the bureau of labor statistics, 20% of people between the age of 16 and 24 are unemployed. and the 2008 u.s. census found 15 million young adults live with their parents. so, what can parents do without going broke themselves? here with some advice is "early show" financial adviser ray martin. good morning, ray. >> good morning, julie. >> how do you figure out if you can even afford to help your kids? >> yeah. it breaks down like this, according to a recent survey, 41% of parent are providing financial support cash to their adult kids. and the amount is a surprising 10% of their income. >> wow. >> if you're a parent and you're struggling yourself, you're struggling to make your mortgage payments on time, credit card debt, struggling to make minimum
8:20 am
payments, not saving for retirm, if you're struggling you shouldn't help your struggling child with cash. you should help other noncash ways to help them. >> what about letting them move back in with you? >> tlahat's a perfect example. that's a gray way to provide a once this a lifetime low cost living arrangement but you don't want to create a state of dependence to last a long time. you want to talk about, will you charge rent? how much? will this be for an open-ended period of time or limited of time? household duties, curfews, visitors, sleepovers, it's a whole new meaning when your adult kids are involved. think about the movie "failure to launch" and you get the idea. about 15 million adult kids are living with their parent. >> what about medical insurance, is there a way a parent can help an adult child with medical insurance? >> absolutely. according to the new health care reform rules starting september 23rd, employer-provided health
8:21 am
plans are required to allow their parent to keep their adult kids on their health insurance up to age 26. this can be an ideal way to continue health insurance, particularly for an adult kid who doesn't have a job right now, can't get coverage or who has preexisting conditions. don't always assume that's the best option. if your adult kid is healthy, they might be able to get insurance at a lower cost than it costs to add them back to the parent' policy. check out websites like and you might be able to find health insurance for as little as $150 a month. >> what about student loans and credit card debt, is it smart for parent to help bail your kids out? >> you want to resist financial bailout. you want to help but not enable or create -- you want to create economic self-sufficiency. so, instead of saying, look, i'm going to pay off all your debts, work with your adult kid to restructure student loans, look at income-based repayment option or stretch out student loans to 25 years to make payment more
8:22 am
affordable. >> finally, if your kid doesn't have a credit card and they want one, is it a smart idea for you to co-sign for them? >> no. no. a parent who co- co-signs for their adult kid's credit card is putting their own credit history at risk. if that kid uses that card irresponsibly, it will reflect on the parent' credit card score as well. kids under the age of 21 aren't allowed to get credit card unless they have income to prove it or parent co-ion. don't co-sign. get doum cat copies of statement for your kid or get on the website and watch activity and help them a debt repayment plan, but don't co-sign. >> tough love. ray martin, thanks so much. >> you're welcome. >> for more on helping your kids reach financial independence, head to still ahead, the very busy and hilarious steve carell steps
