court at 1:30 this afternoon. it was surveillance video from the king of prussia mall last night that brought in a lot of tips. it was about this woman and where people spotted her with the baby. she is accused of befriending a family in the food court. she walked up, just like a stranger, but she eventually ran off with the 7-week-old when she went to care for it when it was crying. police moved from point to point in both montgomery and chester counties eventually finding her and a baby at a home when that news reached dozens of the baby's family members gathered at the upper merion police station there was a huge sense of relief after hours of waiting and agony. still, the family wants to know why a family would take an infant like this. that baby's grandfather spoke to nbc 10. >> she might have a problem. the lady might have a problem. i ain't going to say i'm going to forgive her.
11:02 am
>> reporter: the baby got checked out last night. everything seems okay. police are not releasing the name of that woman. we expect to learn it later today. drew smith, nbc 10 news. drew, thank you. shoppers meanwhile saw a chaotic scene outside the king of prussia mall as police combed the parking lot last night. officers searched cars as they tried to leave the mall to check for that missing baby. this morning the king of prussia mall posted this statement on their facebook page. everyone here at the king of prussia mall is heartened and relieved by the safe return of baby simmons to his parents and family. it went onto say the king of prussia mall is a safe and family friendly environment and we maintain state-of-the-art security protocol. the safety of our customers is of utmost priority and we are happy to reunite the baby with his family. and if you have a smartphone, you probably got an alert on your phone about this amber alert. it would have looked something like this. and if your phone ringer was turned on, the loud alarm would
11:03 am
have gone off. an amber alert is issued and police think an abduction has occurred and child younger than 17 is believed to be in danger. and if you have the nbc 10 app you got the information about the situation as it unfolded as it was happening. we alerted you about the abduction from the mall and kept you in the loop with push alerts through the night. and when you clicked on any of those stories you were able to read the very latest on the nbc 10 app. this is the tool of it will get you breaking news and it's free. it's a free download. stay with nbc 10 of course and the nbc 10 app for updates as we continue to work this story and get you new information. now your nbc 10 first alert weather. >> meanwhile, we are tracking thunderstorms this morning. look at this. right now the severe weather moving through the jersey shore. this was the look from the cape may camera. how long will the stormy weather hang around, you're wondering? nbc 10 meteorologist bill henley
11:04 am
is here with the forecast. >> hi, vai. the first storms won't last long. they are right on track. we talked about this first thing this morning when we went on the air before the "today" show. the storms moving through delaware, south jersey. they've already cleared delaware. the now heavy downpours with strong gusty winds are moving past atlantic city into burlington county and ocean county. look at the lightning with those heavy downpours. they're moving fast. they'll be in ship bottom about 15 minutes from now. they'll be moving offshore, but there are more showers and the potential for more thunderstorms even in the wake of these storms. but it's not going to be ab all-day rainfall. you can see light rain falling in philadelphia. the next line doesn't look impressive just yet, but this will likely fire up this afternoon. and it could impact the evening commute. so there go the storms that we're watching right now at the shore. this is 2:00 this afternoon. pretty quiet. in fact, we might see some breaks in the clouds and get some sunshine. and that's going to send our temperatures even higher than they are right now.
11:05 am
but look at this, 3:00 this afternoon we're starting to see the development of that next line of showers. and during the afternoon commute there's 6:00 this evening from the trenton area through some of the suburbs into philadelphia, wilmington and even southern new castle county that line of storms will be moving through the area. that's when we could see another round of thunderstorms this afternoon. so it's going to be a dreary day and occasionally a stormy one, but so unusual for this time of year. the temperatures which have soared and are going to stay elevated right on through this afternoon. 1:00 some mainly light showers. then we'll be watching for that next line developing at 4:00 and some storms in the picture for 7:00 this evening. and there are some big changes ahead for the weekend too. wait until you see the seven-day forecast. i've got that for you when i come back in just a few minutes, vai. thank you, bill. we're following villanova's march to victory. a group of students are hitting the road at this hour to follow the team. nbc 10's rosemary connors is
11:06 am
going along. did they get off okay? >> reporter: they did get okay, vai. a soggy sendoff, but didn't dampen the students. the students taking the chartered flight villanova organized should take off around 11:30 this morning. and skies look pretty good. they shouldn't have any problems. for the students it was about a $700 ticket to get this chartered flight. that's compared to about $1,000 that some students had to pay to get flights to houston from philly international. so a little bit of a deal. there are about 700 students total heading down to houston no matter how they get there. that's how many tickets were available to the kids. and they got them at pretty deep discount, $40 for saturday's game and $40 for monday's game if villanova can beat oklahoma. of course that's what everybody's thinking about going into tomorrow considering villanova had a tough loss against the sooners in december. but you know what, the students are confident.
11:07 am
take a listen. >> not concerned at all. we definitely got this. i mean, we've all had such confidence in our team going into it so far. we just like hoping for the best. we know we'll come out with the win. >> reporter: at the very least they're just excited that this is history in the making. villanova in the final four once again. for any student who can't make it down to houston, they're going to have many watch parties going on throughout the connolly center here on campus. rosemary connors, nbc 10 news. >> thank you, rosemary. $80 for two tickets and another $80 to get you through the rest of the week. that's how college kids do it. we have a team in houston for villanova's march to victory. we'll check in with matt ahead in our next half hour. meanwhile, tonight we are bringing you a live special from houston called villanova: march to victory. we're talking to the team, the fans and finding out what the wildcats must do to win.

11:33 am
