5:02 am
we are just getting into this. we are told this happened a little after midnight. so we are hours into this. but still a lot of questions. again, we're going to go down and talk more with police. if you are heading from oakland to alameda, the tube is closed. you will not be able to get through. you will have to go around to 23rd and get over that way. obviously it is not affecting traffic this early in the game. but this should be out here for a couple of hours. we'll continue to try to get more information for you. and we'll keep you update here on the morning news. live in alameda, claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. we are getting word of a major development in the search for a little girl. ktvu's jade hernandez joins us with this story. >> reporter: we have learned this is a statewide alr -- amber alert. the california highway patrol, they don't have a license plate

number to put up on that board. i do want you to take a look at this little girl that has been missing since last night. you're looking at 8-year-old elis -- elisa cardenas. she is about 4 feet tall, 60 pounds, with brown hair and eyes. and joining us this morning is california highway patrol's trent pross. thank you. we understand you have an update from fresno police for us. >> yeah. right now, they are questioning someone regarding this incident. however, we haven't located the vehicle or the little girl. so this is truly an incident which is every person's nightmare because this little girl was abducted from her home by a stranger. so we know time is of the essence. and we rely heavily on the public. >> reporter: we have video of the family gathering together, trying to make sure they were trying to get the word out last night. california highway patrol obviously looking for this little girl.
5:04 am
the man who was thought to have abducted this girl is described as a 25-year-old white man or light-skinned latino man, 6'tall, 200 pounds. i do understand that you may have a vehicle picture that you were able to give to us a little earlier. and we should have that for viewers later on. but how you were you able to get a picture, a description of this car. what did the family tell the california highway patrol when this little girl was abducted? . >> the fresno police department was investigating this. so after interviewing the family at length, they were able to gather a very detailed description of the suspect vehicle. so we just received that a minute ago. we're going to try to get it out to everyone as soon as possible. but we want to remind everyone that please, if you observe a vehicle what fits at description, don't take the law into your own hands and contact law enforcement. but we rely heavily on the
5:05 am
public for assisting us. >> reporter: thank you very much, trent cross. we understand that man was last seen driving a 1980s, 1990s, ford red pickup truck, possibly red or brown. and there is a white or horizontal stripe on that pickup truck. again, we should have a picture for viewers this morning. reporting live, jade hernandez, ktvu channel 2 news. this morning, a manhunt continues with a driver of a stolen van who intentionally ran over a fremont police officer. this happened yesterday morning on warm springs boulevard. police say they took the delivery truck right into officer brower's motorcycle. this horrifying incident led to a very intense door-to-door search of that neighborhood. >> they asked me questions like, you know, who has been here in the last 24 hours, which nobody but the people who
5:06 am
live here. >> last night, police detained a man believed to be a friend of the fuge tive at the -- fugitive at the south hayward bar station. meantime, officer brower underwent surgery last night. he is listed in serious condition this morning. we'll continue to follow this story for you all morning long. you can also get updates at any time at our website, investigators have now released a sketch of they man -- of a man who tried to rape a woman near walnut creek. he's described as white, about 5'9" tall. he has brown lair, -- hair, a medium build and facial hair. this was the fifth attack since june. these crimes have many tenants asking apartment management to let them out of their lease. but they may not be able to avoid expensive penalty fees
5:07 am
all morning. >> if you sign on for awe year, -- for a year, you're stuck, unless you can show that they reached the implied limited warrantability. and the laws don't mention security guards. >> today, they can take me to small claims court if they want to. i'm moving for my own safety. >> he said the dna evidence ties him to the first three attacks. investigators say a copycat may be responsible for the two attacks since then. your time now, 5:07. sal is here. and there is plenty to talk about in our commute already. >> reporter: that's right. we have the webster closed from oakland to alameda. if you are driving that way -- to alameda, i should say, you need to go to 23rd street -- actually, fruitvale or park street until further notice.
5:08 am
let's go out and look at some of the commutes here. westbound 280, that traffic is moving pretty well, heading out through the macarthur maze. also, bay bridge. westbound traffic is doing well, getting into san francisco. and this northbound commute is moving well. now, at 5:08, let's go to steve. >> all right, sal. thank you. a little low has dropped in. right there. you can see it forming. it's producing snow in the 7,000-foot level. and there is a winter weather advisory out. highway 88. if you have ever driven that sometimes in the summer, you're like, that's pretty far down there. couple of inches of snow there. the low will settle in. the wraparound could give the south bay, maybe the eastbound bay some showers. because i think on the northern edge of this, the north bay should warm up a little bit. these are always tricky systems. but there it is. it rotates south. you will have to take the wraparound. it's a cold, unstable system.
5:09 am
sun and clouds. a lot more sun on the coast and towards the north. but clouds kind of hit and miss. and we'll mention showers. i have to cover myself. napa airport, 47. 10 warmer, though, oakland, berkeley. 40s in the mountains. intermittent rain. snow. 46, ukiah. a little chilly up there. 40s and 50s and 60s in southern california. and much cooler because of that low, which will be here until about thursday morning. sun and clouds. a little breezy at times. higher pressure to the north. lower pressure to the south. especially out to the valleys. 60s and 70s. that's an 80 in santa rosa. i think on the north side of that, a little north wind should help. partly cloudy. mostly sunny, depending on your location. farther south, more clouds. best opportunity for showers will be wednesday. and starting to clear thursday, steve. and friday and saturday look better. former bart police officer
5:10 am
yohanes messerly now wants ray new trial. they say messerly's conviction for manslaughter for shooting an unarmed bart passenger should be overturned. a similar shooting by a police officer in kentucky undercuts the prosecution's entire case. >> the district attorney said this has never, ever happened before, ever. in a million times police officers have fired their tasers before it has never happened before. guess what? it has. under the law, if it would have convinced one of the jurors to change his or her vote, that is enough to merit a new trial. >> he is facing a sentence of probation to 14 years in prison. we'll continue to follow our top stories this morning. one of them breaking news out of fresno. there are new developments we're hearing in the desperate search for a missing little
5:11 am
girl. there she is, and her kidnapper. also, state lawmakers are scheduled to vote on the state budget. on thursday. we'll tell you what the state controllers say may happen if they don't approve it. and president obama is highlighting bay area companies and their partnerships with community colleges. i'll have details coming up from washington, d.c. good morning. this morning's commute, already starting off with busy spots. we'll tell you more about the east bay commute straight ahead.

5:13 am
5:14 am
welcome back to the morning news. it's now 5:13. ask president obama is kicking off a summit today. allison burns joins us now from washington with our details. >> reporter: good morning to you, pam. right now, community colleges are jammed with laid-off workers who are going back to school. now, president obama wants to match those students with big- named u.s. warriors. he's hosting the first-ever white house summit. and on the table is a proposal with some local companies like the gap and pg&e. so the colleges will teach the students the skills they need to get hired there. >> these colleges don't just serve as a gateway to good jobs for millions of middle class
5:15 am
americans. community colleges also serves as a pool of talent where communities can draw trained, skilled workers. >> reporter: community colleges are gaining in plrts. -- popularity. 71% of americans agree it's better for some students to go to a community college than a four-year school. but these are tough times for community colleges. and i'll have more on that during my next update in about an hour. for now, we're live, alison burns, ktvu channel 2 news. the man who sets off a bomb in times square faces a life sentence. sisal sha -- faisal shahzad admits to setting off the bomb. shahzad has said he received explosives training and more than $15,000 from the pakistani taliban. time now, 5:15. governor schwarzenegger does
5:16 am
have the right to furlough state employees. that's what the state's supreme court has ruled. however, the justices have said that power is not unilateral. the court ruling says the governor must have the consent of the unions or the legislature before ordering unpaid days off. they implicitly approved the governor's furloughs over less salaries in the budget. state comptroller is prepared to start issuing i.o.u.s if the governor does not pass a new budget by next week. lawmakers are expected to get all of the details tomorrow. then a vote is expected on thursday. this morning's scheduled radio debate in the governor's race has now been canceled. that's because the campaigns for both meg whitman and jerry brown say details for the debate were never finalized. a final televised debate between brown and whitman is
5:17 am
scheduled for october 12th. that will be at dominican university in san rafael. two new polls show democrat jerry brown leading republican meg whitman in the race but not by much. the polls by survey usa and rasmussen were the first taken since the story broke that whitman housed an illegal immigrant. and the survey usa poll shows brown with 47%, coverage paird with 43% for whitman. san francisco chronicle is reporting that a woman who used to be a nanny for meg whitman 12 years ago, says she believes whitman's former housekeeper, nikki diaz, is telling the truth. jill armstrong said she quit after two months because of the demands and difficulties of working in whitman's household.
5:18 am
a spokesman calls armstrong's complaints, unsubstantiated claims. ethics charges have been filed now against a former city councilmember in pinol. they did not disclose business ties with a developer what received millions of dollars in city contracts. that developer was redeveloping two shopping centers with the city as kohl's landscaping was doing business with them. this case has been suspended while cole is in the army overseas. sal is covering traffic. one of which is the webster one and two. still closed? >> still closed. that's right, pam. coming from oakland to alame. the webster is closed to webster street. let's keep you posted on that. they have been out there since midnight. and they may have opened within the hour. but we're keeping an eye on that. westbound 24 traffic on the way
5:19 am
to oakland looks okay. if you're driving in on 880 this morning, traffic there is also looking good in both directions. the best way to get to alameda, by the way, would be to use the park or fruitvale in oakland. let's take a look at 101 in san francisco. that looks good heading to the split. and an area of low pressure is significant -- settling in to the san joaquin valley. it's producing some snow above 7,000 feet. it's getti a little north wind on the back side. this looks like farther south you go, the better opportunity for rain. some of these could be brief, heavy showers or thundershowers. most areas say clear. so the lows that develop will have higher pressure to the north. and higher pressure doesn't like lower pressure. again, most of this is out of our area. but the wraparound could give parts of the south bay, santa
5:20 am
clara valley, monterey, salinas valley in line for showers north bay. dare i say -- dare, dare. actually, could be warm up there today. now, 70s for some. mid-70s, upper 70s. around the bay, 70s. coast, 60s. 49 in santa rosa. 57, oakland, berkeley. 52, palo alto. 59, fresno. with lows settling in there. also down toward southern california. rain and snow up toward the sierra nevada. the low again, the farther south, the better it is to the north bay. greater opportunity for the south bay to see shower activity. sun and clouds. northerly breeze. and that is beneficial for some like santa rosa. sonoma county airport. farther south you go, the greater opportunity you go for showers. wednesday, i think, is the key for us as thal low injects out. then we have the opportunity to see some showers here. but today, i think it's mostly south of us. after thursday, clearing out.
5:21 am
and the weekend, friday into saturday, does look warmer. . european markets are on the upswing this morning, despite a credit agency's warning that ireland's debt rating may be downgraded. analysts say it is in reaction to a rate cut in japan. the central bank is dropping a key rate to nearly zero and is taking other steps to deflate the yen. the nikkei climbed 1 1/2% on that report. others are moving mostly higher overnight. checking in on our numbers this morning. we start the day, there were losses yesterday, with dow jones off almost 78 and a half points. and starts today at 10,751. we'll get a better indication of where our markets will open up as we get closer to that opening bell. toyota says it has now fixed most of the 5.6 million cars and trucks it recalled in the u.s. for acceleration
