lead police have is a security video that exists. a physical struggle that took place here near this bus stop between a man and a woman. now they are not sure if the two knew each other or if she was really taken against her will. police spent last night reviewing surveillance video taken from an ac transit camera that shows the incident. officers say a bus driver saw an asian man approach an asian woman between 20-40 years old who was sitting at a bus stop. now that bus driver told investigators that there was a struggle between the two and the man took the woman into the bushes of a nearby business complex. a chp helicopter searched the area using infrared technology that features heat paying particular tax to the creek but nobody was found. >> right now we only have the one reporting party who was the bus driver. so the video gives us another
perspective of what occurred. and we will be reviewing the video to see if there is any way to identify the person involved. >> reporter: police say at this point they have not received any tips or leads. they may be releasing that video to the media to help this case. if the woman is safe and she may come forward after seeing the video, investigators say this appears to be an isolated incident but they are treating this as a worse case scenario. reporting live from milpitas janine de la vega ktvu channel 2 news. we are following developing news for you from the south bay. investigators are still on the scene from an early morning fire. it started shortly after 2:00 this morning on the 5400 block of monterey road. the fire department sent out pictures from the fire sent a short time ago. investigators are still looking for a man in his 70s that live in that mobile home.

killed 20 children and six adults at that school before killing himself. new this morning police in mexico are searching for a stolen truck carrying radio active material. the truck was transporting radioactive material used to treat cancer when it was stolen on monday. officials say the material does have a protective shield but it could pose serious health risks if that shield is removed or gets damaged. the material could not be ewessed to -- could not be used to make a nuclear weapon but could be used to make a dirty bomb. vice president joe biden is arriving in beijing. the vice president made today with the vice president. both u.s. and japan have refused to recognize china's declaration. time is 6:15. the family of nelson mandela says he's putting up a courageous fight but he is

long run is really good for him because now he got to stay and with a green card and become a citizen and get to retire in america. >> legal experts say the judge appeared to rule on this case strictly by the book. u.s. immigration policy allows immigrants to become permanent residents if they came to this country before 1972 and they have good moral character. the richmond city council gave unanimous approval to smokers using electronic cigarettes in enclosed public spaces. e-cigarettes use batteries to heat a liquid that contains nicotine. supporters say they makes them safer than regular cigarettes. even if that is true they could still lead young people -- leave young people to take up smoking. >> regardless of how you get the nicotine drug that there should be restrictions on it.
