7:06 am
scene in redding, california, for us this morning. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: paula, good morning to you. authorities are working on a vague description of who they believe is responsible for abducting sherri papini. they say they are looking for two hispanic women that they believe to be armed and dangerous, driving a dark colored suv. this morning, sherri papini, home after a three-week ordeal. >> sherri is now safe and she has been treated at an area hospital for nonlife-threatening injuries. >> reporter: the mom of two held captive for nearly a month until authorities say she was freed by her captors early thanksgiving morning, ending a desperate search. >> she was bound with restraints, but was able to summon from a passing -- help from a passing motorist. >> reporter: according to police, the 34-year-old was found on the side of the road near sacramento, nearly 150 miles from where authorities believe she was taken while out jogging near her northern california home.

7:08 am
now, authorities are saying that although sherri papini is safe, a whole new investigation has begun. also, paula, we learned she has not yet seen her kids. she is with her husband so certainly a happy homecoming in around the corner. paula. >> kayna, thank you. and shasta county sheriff tom bosenko joins us from redding. sheriff, thank you so much for joining us. first and foremost, how rare is it she was found 150 miles from home on a rural road that her abductors basically just release the captor? >> it is a very rare occurrence to have that happen. it's been three weeks since her disappearance, and then find her and released by her captors i think is very rare. >> the suspects are still outstanding. i want to ask you about them in a moment, but what was her condition when she was found? i know that she was bound, but what was her state of mind?
7:09 am
>> obviously very emotional. the california highway patrol was able to connect her with her husband via cell phone, and he immediately started responding down to the yellow county sacramento area and then, of course, she was very emotional to be released and hear her husband's voice, and then a few hours later, to be reunited with him. >> absolutely. it was a thanksgiving day miracle. do you have any idea how long she had been there before she was found, sheriff? >> it was a very short amount of time. evidently, one of the captors had dropped her off on a rural road near interstate 5 and an interchange. she was able to flag down a motori motorist, and that motorist summoned emergency assistance from the highway patrol and then medical responded as well. >> you said one of the captors but right now you're looking for two hispanic women that are armed with a handgun driving a dark vehicle. do you believe that these women abducted her? >> yes, we do.
7:10 am
we had received information from ms. papini in regards to that and that was about three weeks ago that she was abducted on november 2nd. >> what type of information has sherri papini revealed and divulged about her alleged captors? >> we were able to receive -- spoke to her yesterday, investigators did, and was able to receive some limited information. obviously, she was emotional and quite upset, but elated to be free, and so we're able to get some information from her, and then in the days following this, we'll be following up with her. >> and we do know that she's stable. she's been released from the hospital right now, but how confident are you that you will find sherri's perpetrators, sheriff? >> we hope that we can get additional information to identify them. maybe the suv, and then hopefully they can be found and brought to justice. >> all right, shasta county sheriff tom bosenko, thank you for joining us. >> you bet, thank you. >> the sheriff saying they don't have a lot to go on, but right
7:11 am
now, they're going on vocal recognition. she didn't get a good look at them, but they are going on vocal recognition of those alleged abductors. >> so many open questions in this story. we'll continue to cover it throughout the show. we want to turn to the trump transition. the president-elect spent thanksgiving with family, but he did not take the whole day off. there are many critical cabinet posts yet to be filled. vacancies that are creating plenty of intrigue and controversy, and abc's devin dwyer is covering it all from washington. >> reporter: after a wednesday night dinner with family and friends, donald trump says he spent thanksgiving day hard at work tweeting, trying to get carrier air conditioner company to stay in the u.s. making progress. will know soon. the company's plan to lay off 1,400 workers and move production to mexico. trump made stopping the deal a top campaign promise. >> believe me. if i were in office right now, carrier would not be leaving indiana. that i can tell you. >> reporter: carrier confirmed in a statement it's had discussions with trump's team,
7:12 am
but has nothing the announce at this time. today the president-elect will get back to filling his cabinet considering candidates for key top posts. treasury, homeland security and veterans affairs all unfilled. secretary of state, an inner struggle in the trump camp over rudy giuliani, and one of his harshest former critics, mitt romney. senior trump adviser, kellyanne conway tweeting this, some trump loyalists warn against romney as secretary of state. general jim mattis, favored contender for secretary of defense. >> he is the real deal. >> reporter: with the flurry of cabinet moves, trump is spending less time than his predecessor on those daily intelligence briefings. the president-elect has had just two, a u.s. official tells abc news. vice president-elect mike pence said to have received several more. experts caution trump still has plenty of time to get up to speed. and donald trump also faces a growing number of potential congressional investigations and abc news learned democrats have
7:13 am
made at least nine separate requests to review the trump transition's use of taxpayer funds and potential conflicts of interest. >> thank you, devin. let's bring in matt dowd. matt, there are warring camps in trump world, giuliani, romney, who do you think gets the nod or could it perhaps go to a third party? >> well, i think this whole romney for secretary of state thing has been a rather bizarre anyway -- this is a guy as you remember that called donald trump a phony, a fraud and a con and now he's interviewing for secretary of state in this. i don't think anybody knows. i think as you're right. the power centers are pushing. the establishment is i think pushing for mitt romney or somebody like mitt romney and then sort of loyalists to donald trump are pushing for rudy giuliani or somebody else they believe is loyal in this. i think the longer this goes on the more problematic it gets for donald trump. >> meanwhile, hillary clinton's lead in the popular vote keeps growing. it's at around 2 million votes and now green party candidate
7:14 am
jill stein is calling for a recount in several key states. do you think this effort is going to go anywhere? >> well, this continues to be such an historic thing. the idea that somebody wins a popular vote by plus 2 million and loses the electoral college overwhelmingly. the funny thing about this is, as we watched football yesterday, jill stein is flowing a flag, a challenge clag in this, but she's not even the main participant in this game. as of right now there hasn't been real evidence but who knows what could get revealed over the next few weeks. >> telling that the clinton campaign has not weighed in on this. matt dowd, thank you very much as always for your analysis and analogies. paula, over to you. >> thank you very much. well, the doors have opened for one of the biggest shopping days of the year, black friday, millions already running as you can see, taking advantage of the huge sales across the country. abc's rebecca jarvis joins us from a target in chicago with all of the details this morning. hi, rebecca. >> reporter: hey, good morning, paula. they opened their doors here at target last night at 6:00 p.m. will stay open until tonight at
7:15 am
midnight. the top seller, tvs, they sold in the first hour of sales. 3,200 of these every minute. >> two, one! >> here we go. >> whoo! >> reporter: the crowds were fierce and frenzied. overnight, black friday super sales bringing out millions across the country. >> some people were starting to move pretty fast in here. we've got running. we have running. >> reporter: from this toys "r" us in lexington, kentucky, to the old navy in miami, florida. >> 50% off everything. you can't beat that. >> reporter: to the best buy in chicago, illinois, where lines were twice as long as last year. >> came in with a list. i knew what i wanted because i don't want to deal with the long line that is currently forming right now. >> two hours before we'll hand out tickets for all the really big items. >> reporter: this year shoppers are expected to spend $27 billion making it the second biggest shopping day of the year. so what exactly are people lining up for this year? what do you think will be the
7:16 am
big sellers? >> electronics always your top items. so tvs, video game consoles, drones are really taking off, no pun intended. >> reporter: but if you weren't among the crowds of turkey day shoppers there's still plenty of time to join the expected 137 million people who plan to shop over the holiday weekend. 75% of those shoppers will be out today for black friday deals. and as you can tell, they still have a few tvs left. you're in luck if you are on the market for that. if you want the must have toy of the season these hatchimals, they still have a few left. going fast. let me know if you need me to pick some up for you. >> no. please don't. but make a couple of tvs. thanks, rebecca. >> you got it. joining us now on what's one of the busiest shopping days of year is the ceo of macy's, terry lundgren. there is so much competition out there. much of it online so how are you getting people inside your stores?
7:17 am
>> well, first of all, paula, we're the third largest online company in america in our category. it's only behind amazon and walmart. so we're getting our share there as well. but if you saw the crowds here last night, i was here at herald square as well, when we opened at 5:00 p.m. and had 16,000 people continuously streaming into the building. so people are definitely coming here. i think they're coming for that tactile experience and getting their hands on great deals. >> so many that shop exclusively online, though, terry. for those that are planning on shopping online how can you lure them? what can you tell them? how can you convince them to actually come into the brick and mortar store? >> well, first of all, as i said we're so huge online it's a massive part of our business, but that's not typically how the customers shop, paula. the truth is the average customer today starts with their phone, does their research, comes into a brick environment and then makes a decision. they are either buying it in the store, or they are buying it online. so that omni channel consumer is
7:18 am
not just a consumer of today but definitely growing that way into the future, as well. >> all right, terry, i know it's going to be a very busy day for you and all the other retailers, best of luck and stay safe. thanks, terry. >> thanks very much. >> stay safe? >> stay safe. you know what? you have seen the shoppers. they are running in to get those good deals. >> that's true. speaking of safety, let's check the weather. i might not be safe after that comment actually. >> if you're driving -- some slick spots along interstate 80 and north of that and temperatures close to the freezing mark, be careful. a little messy. not quite as messy as portland area and outside of washington county. 2 to 5 inches of rainfall falling yesterday. more coming, a poe tent system potent system coming into the west coast that will hit everybody from seattle awe the way down to san diego. could see mudslides and winds up to 50 miles an hour. this will be snow above the 4,000-foot mark, so be careful if you're traveling on the mountain passes and rain across the midsection on sunday. your weekend getaways brought to you by macy's.

7:33 am

7:34 am
brad garrett. brad, good morning to you. in your view, how rare is it exactly to have a victim released three weeks after being abducted? >> well, the reality, dan, is it's very rare. you provided some examples of women that survived, but this is just an odd case from the beginning. you have a three-week abduction. then you have the victim placed on the side of a road by allegedly two females that were armed. was the motive of this kidnapping. >> so many open questions and as we heard earlier, the authorities are interviewing sherri papini. they're going to go back and talk to her again. what are they going to be trying to learn from her exactly? >> she's the most valuable resource because despite the fact she was held, what did she hear? what did she see? how can she describe where they held her? other voices, did she hear them talking on cell phones, particularly at the time she was dropped?
7:35 am
can they track a cell phone and there may be forensic evidence on her. clothing, et cetera, that could give them potential leads of bad guys. >> the authorities say they're looking for a dark van with two hispanic women. what do you make of those details? >> we don't know what role the women played. were they the actual abductors or did they decide to take her from whatever location she was being held and drop her? so that's another sort of open question as to are they the main players or not? but, you know, this is a case i think will get solved. you're in a very remote, rural part of this country. the word will spread. if the sheriff, the fbi, et cetera, are good with social media, they're going to get the word out. they're going to catch these folks. >> brad garrett, as always we appreciate your analysis. thank you very much. reassuring to hear brad say he thinks it will be solved. >> very reassuring and as kayna reported she has reunited with her husband. but she has not seen her children.

7:41 am
it's true, yes, yes, that's because they have all the data from everything they sold yesterday and continuing in realtime on they sold more -- took more orders per minute than they ever have in history, and they tell me that when you look at all the tvs that they sold yesterday, if you laid them flat, it would cover disneyland. there were so many tvs sold yesterday. >> wow. >> online sales up 14% yesterday from last thanksgiving. amazon telling me that they had their bigger black friday, whatever this thing is, it used to be called thanksgiving but now it's thanks black friday cyber monday thing. they had that start and it was bigger than it was for them the previous year. had their biggest day ever yesterday. a lot of people buying online. >> all right. your big board may be bigger, but ours has you in it, so we

get them? we've seen reports on thieves snagging packages right off your front porch and this is prime season for deliveries. brad garrett is back. what kind of high-tech solutions are out there to prevent theft? >> this is a huge, huge problem. 20 plus million packages by the so-called porch pirates. you've got cameras you can place at your front door. monitor via your phone. there's motion sensors you can place when a package has been set down. you will get -- give an alert and also it will tell you if the package has been moved. so those are the primary tech things can you do. >> okay, so when dealing -- are there low-tech ways to deal with porch pirates like a dog or something like that? >> well, maybe a dog, dan, but my suggestion is the following. talk to u.p.s., fedex, the postal service, have them hold the packages at the post office at a terminal. that's the key. have it delivered to a neighbor, a relative. that's the other one and the last is that you have the package delivered to a delivery
7:44 am
service who will then personally bring it to you at an appointed time. 10:00 at night. whenever you are home. the key is you do not let packages stay at your front door. >> brad, thank you very much. somebody tries to take our packages our cats will cut them. >> you have mean cats. >> no, i was totally lying with all of the aforementioned. time to talk about the movies. a lot of big name titles opening up including "moana," from our parent company, disney. here's a look at that. >> when you use a bird to write with, it's called tweeting. i know. not every day you get a chance to meet your hero. >> you are not my hero. >> all right. joining us now "people" magazine's kate coyne. i got to ask, this is typically the time of year where studios release some of the movies that
7:45 am
they anticipate will generate some oscar buzz. what are you seeing? >> certainly it is all about "moana" at this moment. the biggest film to hit the box office, possibly all year. it's going to be massive, even bigger than the rock himself. it's going to be huge. the other contender to that in terms of impact on the box office will be "star wars: one," and geeks and nongeeks will be flocking to it, i think. in terms of oscar potential, however, you got to be looking at much quieter film, not your big, big blockbusters. i think a real front-runner at this point in one word is "fences." this is denzel washington's direct direct direct directorial debut, and i'm just going to say it right now. viola davis just won her oscar. in heard it here. >> i've seen "manchester by the
7:46 am
sea" and "moonlight" and they are incredible. >> i think they will get best picture nominations. i don't know if they'll win now that that category is so huge. they're in as nominees i think most definitely. >> quickly around the horn favorite holiday movie? >> i have -- toss-up between "meet me in st. louis" going old school or "christmas story." >> brad? >> "how the grinch stole christmas." >> there we go. yeah. >> becky, what's yours? >> "home alone." >> yes. >> all right. becky, i'm right with brad. i don't know if it's an insight into my fbi brain but "how the grinch stole christmas." >> i can't believe nobody mentioned "elf." i'm disappointed in all of you. >> except you. >> yes. >> we'll talk to you soon. coming up, the way that cyberthieves are targeting online shoppers during the black friday rush. plus, more on "moana." how lin-manuel miranda went from performing his smash broadway hit "hamilton" to writing songs for disney's newest blockbuster. ♪
