1:00 am
. new overnight, the search for two missing teens off the florida coast growing in size and scope. the navy scouring the area the size of indiana. we will hear from the parents of the missing boys. the president wraps up an overseas trip, but what he says has him in hot water. a live report. and the republicans in the race for the white house. well, they're saying a lot of things. slamming president obama following his most pointed remarks about the republican field. we will have the reaction. good morning.
1:01 am
welcome to "early start." i'm john berman. it is tuesday july 28th. christine romans is off today. developing this morning, the search for two boys in jupiter, florida, lost at sea has focused further north 60 miles off the coast of jacksonville an area the size of indiana. crews have been searching for the two night and day. they are not giving up hope and neither are the boys' mothers who spoke to anderson cooper. >> both boys are comfortable on the water. they are just as comfortable on a boat as they are on land. they are avid fishermen and they are extremely athletic and skilled and knowledgeable about being on the water which is why the search and rescue has maintained the force it has
1:02 am
because there is such strong belief they will be rescued and found soon. >> let's get the latest on the search from martin savage. >> reporter: john the families continue to be hopeful that the teenagers will be found alive and well. the coast guard says there is reason to have that hope. one, they are aggressively searching and two, given the weather conditions in the atlantic it is possible a person in the water could survive four to five days. this would be day four. one troubling factor is the boat was found upside down and they weren't with it. we don't know how it got upside down or when it happened. the authorities say that they sent a rescue swimmer down to investigate. one of the things he noted of the vessel the engine cover of the outboard was off. did that mean they had a
1:03 am
mechanical breakdown? and on friday severe storms went by. when you are out in the water in a small boat that could be very bad. then also the finding of the boat itself. the coast guard says there is good and bad to that. the bad is the fact you did not find the two young men with it but the good is it gives them a specific area to search and using drift and current models they can extrapolate. the bad is it is much harder to find a person in the water than it is to find a boat. there is still reason for hope. john. >> thanks martin. happening now, president obama in the final hours in the trip to africa. the trip focused on the fight against terrorism and for human rights. president obama coming under fire for ignoring ethiopia's human rights issues during his time there. he praised the government as democratically elected and the
1:04 am
integrity of those elected. this morning, the first ever sitting president to speak before the african union. we have robyn kreil joining us from addis ababa. >> reporter: this did cause concern and controversy. there are a number of undemocratic things including the incarceration of journalists and the 100% vote win that the ruling party enjoyed earlier this year. they have come under tremendous criticism for this because president obama's visit, opposition and democracy groups say this is legitmizing the government. this could only be impossible because it was 500 odd seats. it legalizes the fact that the
1:05 am
ethiopian government rules this country with an iron fist. >> robyn, thank you. the key moment for the president when he speaks to the african movement. the president slammed two republicans who want his job. mike huckabee accusing him of marching israel to the door of the oven. >> the particular comments of mr. huckabee are i think part of just a general pattern that we have seen that would be considered ridiculous if it weren't so sad. when you get rhetoric like this maybe it gets attention and maybe this is just never pushed mr. trump out of the headlines.
1:06 am
but it's not the kind of leadership that is needed for america right now. >> mike huckabee not backing down. the former arkansas governor reissued the warning that the deal with iran could lead to israel's demise. >> three times i have been to auschwitz. i have stood at the oven door. i know what it looks like. 1.1 million people killed. for 6,000 years, jews have been hunted and killed all over this earth. when someone in the government says they will kill them i think we should take that seriously. >> donald trump did not pass the opportunity to pass his view that the nuclear deal and president are bad for america. >> he's probably the worst president in the history of our country. he's a very divisive person which is why he brings this kind of stuff up. he should have devoted more time to working on a good nuclear
1:07 am
deal with iran instead of what he's doing. he is just a disaster for our country. >> this morning at 10:00 eastern, john kerry and the energy secretary earnest moniz will testify about the agreement. and the hearing state department agreed to turnover new documents over benghazi. that include 5,000 pages of e-mails when hillary clinton was secretary of state. if the documents produced are anemic or underwhelming, he will schedule a hearing. and calling for president obama to fire john koskinen. senator chaffetz wants him fired that he illegally targeted tea
1:08 am
party groups apply for irs status. a panel of lawyers will be brought in to help the sheriff's office to investigate the case. police a bland hanged herself in her jail cell three days after being arrested. and in massachusetts, a 30-year veteran has been placed on leave for threatening to shoot a motorist in the head. the driver happened to have a camera on his dashboard when the officer pulled him over sunday night. at first, the driver tried to back away because the detective was not in uniform. >> i didn't know you were a cop. >> i'll put a hole through your head sdplchlt okay head. >> give me your license. >> i want to let you know.
1:09 am
okay. i want to let you know i have a dash camera. >> it was nerve wracking when someone is like i'm going to shoot you. digging for his gun. that's a bit extreme. >> the police chief calls the detective's actions troubling. a woman in west virginia who killed her attacker in self defense may have led police to a serial killer. neil foltz may be connected to murders in several states. the woman tells police she fought him off and grabbed his gun and fired the fatal shots. >> when he strangled me he would not let me get any air. when he laid the gun down to get it out of my hands, i shot him. i knew he was there to kill me. i could tell he haddon something. he said that he was going to prison for a long time. >> police say evidence found in his car was a kill kit. this morning, the fbi is
1:10 am
investigating suspicious packages sent to government buildings in oregon. the u.s. postal inspector said it is likely the mail is all related. he could not comment on the nature of the letters, but said this is no reason to believe the general public is at risk. chinese stocks struggle to recover after a brutal fall in trading yesterday. the 8.5% slide in the shanghai came as a couple of weeks of calm. let's get the latest on what is going on right now from andrew stevens in hong kong. dpm good morning, andrew. >> the market did close down about 1.7% but nothing like that steep fall yesterday. that dogleg there shows you what the market did today. after that big, big fall. 8.5% on monday. basically chinese security
1:11 am
regulators saying after the market closed last night, john that they were prepared to step back into the market once again to basically prop it up. the question is why did it fall so radically on monday? it is still unclear why because it is hard to get the real information out. it appears after the three weeks of relative calm with the markets going up by 16% after china had issued a lot of measures to support the market perhaps they stood back on monday to see whether that calm would prevail without such heavy handed action. and another steep selloff. there is a lot of selling pressure in the market and the government is still going to be very active to keep this market going. it is probably still 60% up from a year ago, but the question now is how far is the government prepared to let it fall before it stabilizes. it will be volatile for some time to come. >> andrew stevens, thank you.
1:12 am
let's get more on the markets here. alison kosik is here with that. >> volatile here. it could be a good day on wall street. we could see things turn around. stock futures are higher at the moment. shaking off the turbulence in china. yesterday, the dow fell 128 points. stocks have dipped for five days. investors are worried about the health of the global when and looming interest rate hike. the federal reserve two-day meeting will begin. the rate hike will come as early as september. that is key to the bull markets long run. we will get a look at the corporate earnings from twitter, ford u.p.s. and pfizer. crude oil above $47 a barrel. that is a reaction to china's slowing growth and supply glut that is growing.
1:13 am

1:19 am
where people can stay in the area. now while this could be potentially manned by air coalition and air power, it is unclear how it will be implemented on the ground just yet. lots of questions and complexity about what ground forces will be doing that and, of course lots of complexity when it comes to that issue. we also heard from the turkish prime minister speaking to christiane amanpour on cnn mentioning this safe zone as something very important for turkey and blaming the situation currently. the rise of isis in syria on the international committee saying it is the inaction by the world that has led to the rise of isis there and the fight for power by the assad regime that allowed it to thrive calling isis a product of the syrian crisis. >> thank you, jomana. the big nato meeting 40 minutes
