working the cases very hard for a very long time the three suspects have been identified 52-year-old arial castro and brothers, pedro, 54 and o'neill, 50 years old. they are still processing the scene out here. remember, they have about ten years of forensic evidence to go through to try to figure out what happened to these women. again, matt, the good news is that they are reunited with their families today. >> it certainly is good news. kristen dahlgren in cleveland, thank you very much. john walsh is the host of "america's most wanted," his son, adam, was kidnapped and killed by a stranger back in 1981. john, good morning, nice to see you. >> good see you, matt. >> your first reaction. what an incredible story, not only three women abducted about a decade ago found alive but found together being held >> i was up all night, matt. i was literally so ecstatic. i profiled two of those cases,
7:06 am
amanda berry and the dejesus case. to see the courage of amanda berry, the real here rocker the tiny window when these three perverts were at her house to go out and save her life, the life of her daughter, probably conceived as a result of a sexual assault or rape and charles ramsey walking down the street, to have the guts, as he said in many interviews. you know, i'm black man this is a white woman, i didn't know if it was a domestic abuse case. >> right. >> i thought about it twice, but he went up there and broke her out. they called 911. matt, it is the most phenomenal ending of these three women are alive. the little daughter is alive. and those three suspects are now in custody. it's a great ending. >> but it does raise so many questions, john. this is a small community. you see the street, the houses are right next to each other. and you heard a neighbor say, i barbecued with this guy, used to watch him tinkering with his cars in the backyard. how does someone put on this normal appearance to the outside world while hiding this deep,
7:07 am
dark secret inside? >> these perverts are sociopaths, matt. you and i have talked a lot about t jaycee dugard in the backyard for 18 years. you know, neighbors complaining, cops never going in the bang yard to see them. these guys know what they do is reprehensible. they know they have to brain wash these women and terrorize them and they have to function like they're normal individuals. and they probably -- i know they are alleged, matt, but they probably came back and forth, considered these women their sex slaves or whatever, brought them food and acted like normal people in the community. >> and john, let me ask you this i think i have to ask you. there are a lot of other family abducted over the years and they have always held out hope and this story is going to provide an emotional development what is your message to those families? >> never give up hope. we never gave up hope for elizabeth smart. we never gave up hope and the families kept profiling jaycee dugard.
7:08 am
it's kind of sad that amanda berry's mother died and many of the relatives say she died of a broken heart. but those two families never gave up looking for their daughters. and i say don't give up hope. the not knowing is the worst. it's torture. but many, many times, it's up to the parents to keep the children's names in the public eye and every now and then, we get lucky, matt. i could do cartwheels. if i ever meet charles ramsey, i'm going to give him the biggest hug for being such a brave man. >> john walsh, important perspective on this story. thank you very much. >> thank you, matt. turning to other news, this morning, new jersey's governor chris christie has revealing he underwent lap band surgery. his weight has been an issue for the prominent republican for some time, and governor christie decided that the time was right to do something about it. do nancy snyderman is nbc's chief medical editor. nancy, good to see you. >> hey, matt. >> hearing governor christie had the surgery over the president's day holiday weekend, just two months ago. let's start with the surgery, lap band surgery versus gastric
7:09 am
bypass. >> not as severe, literally a band that goes around the stomach and squeezes it so the pouch of the stomach is smaller, you eat less, feel fuller sooner and your weight should drop. >> who is the perfect candidate for a surgery like that? >> he is the perfect candidate. over 100 pounds to lose, a bmi over 40. over 18. he always said he's the healthiest fat guy around, no high blood pressure, no diabetes. if he can shed this weight, and i think he will, he will be able to prevent getting the illnesses. >> i spoke to governor christie on the phone this morning. he had this on a friday and was back at work with a very tough schedule on the tuesday afterwards. >> not a shock. >> what about complications? he said to me this morning, he hasn't had any. what would they be, and how soon would they arrive? >> we know how disciplined he is and some rumors going around this morning he shed 40 pounds. the reality is he is going it be
7:10 am
surrounded by doctors, nurses, dietitians, psychologists. it takes a team of people. because he is so driven, because he has a goal, and he has talked a lot about his wife and his kids and wanting to be healthier, i suspect he is going to do very, very w. >> you say very, very w. >> the model candidate. >> co-lose up to 100 pounds. >> get to fighting weight, frankly, be healthy. the fact he doesn't have high blood pressure or diabetes means he has a head start. >> occurred two and a half months ago over the february presidents' day holiday but just coming to light now. >> pretty cool. i think he is going to do very well. >> nancy, thanks very much. >> you bet, matt. go out to savannah. new details this morning on a troubling arrest in virginia. an air force officer who ran the branch's sexual assault prevention unit now charged himself with sexual battery. nbc's jim miklaszewski is at the

7:12 am
attitude that boys will be boys. >> reporter: the accusations come just as a new pentagon report shows a startling rise in sexual assaults in the military. the numbers reveal that actual reports of sexual assaults last year rose by 6%, up to 3,374. even more troubling, the survey shows that sexual assaults that went unreported skyrocketed from 19,000 to 26,000. >> we've got to see action. they are great at saying we have zero tolerance, but their actions do not support their words. >> reporter: the air force is still reeling from its worst sex scandal ever. 33 basic training instructors have been accused of sexually assaulting 63 recruits at lackland air force base in san antonio. as for the lieutenant colonel, he allegedly attacked a civilian this will be handled in civilian courts and not the military.

7:31 am
place. >> that's right. two words, matt, foot massage. >> all right. you got my interest there, al. thanks very much. by the way, we're all spread out this morning. natalie is live in sweden with an exclusive first look at the brand new museum that is dedicated entirely to abba, and a little later on a look at the fashions on display at last night's met gala. savannah? >> a lot to look forward to, but we want to begin this half hour with the women who disappeared some ten years ago, now found alive and okay in cleveland. let's get to nbc's kristen dahlgren. she's there with the latest. kristen, good morning again to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah, yeah. a dramatic 24 hours here in cleveland. those three women are now at an area hospital being checked out. that's where their family and friends gathered last night. they haven't seen them in some cases in more than ten years. there is -- there are three suspects in custody. we want to show you a picture of one of them.
7:32 am
this is the suspect believed to have kept these women in this house in this cleveland neighborhood. as i said yesterday, really a dramatic rescue. we want to hear now from the neighbor who rescued them, who helped amanda berry escape. >> i'm eating my mcdonald's. i come outside, and i see this girl going nuts trying to get out of a house, so i go on the porch. i go on the porch are and she says help me get out. i've been here a long time. so, you know, i figured it was a domestic violence dispute, so i open the door, and we can't get in that way because the door, it's so much, that a body can't fit through, only your hand, so we kicked the bottom, and she comes out with a little girl, and she says call 911. my name is amanda berry. when she told me, it didn't register until i got the call to 911, and i'm calling the 911 for amanda berry. i thought this girl was dead. see, the girl amanda, told the
7:33 am
police i ain't just only one. there's some more girls up in that house so they are going up there, you know, 30, 40 feet, and when they came out it was just astonishing because i thought they would come out with nothing. i figured whoever she was, like i say, my neighbor, i barbecued with this dude and we eat ribs and what not and listen to salsa music. see where i'm coming from, bro. >> reporter: and you had indication? >> not a clue. >> charles ramsey, one of the neighbors who helped rescue the women yesterday. let's turn to another neighbor, juan perez who lives near the home where all of this unfolded. mr. perez, good morning to you. good to have you with us. >> good morning to you. >> sir, how long have you lived in this home? as i understand you're right next door, and did you ever see anything that would have raised suspicions? >> i've been in the neighborhood for 22 years, since i was 5, and, no, i can't lie. i've never seen anything that
7:34 am
raised any suspicion. i've never seen anything that, you know, made me feel uncomfortable enough to call the police. i just saw someone who was very nice, charismatic, helped with the community, on the street, and he even helped fix my tire once, you know. i never thought nothing of it. i've known him since i was a kid. >> you're talking about the man who lives there who we now understand is under arrest along with a couple of other men. what do you remember about him, and is it somebody that you know well, someone you interacted with frequently? >> i've known him since i was a child. he was someone that would always see me, say hi, start conversati conversation. i just talked to him like a neighbor, like nothing too extreme. we weren't, you know, friends, like best friends. we didn't, you know, have our own personal time, but it was always just, hey, how are you?
7:35 am
do you need help with this? do you need help with that kind of a relationship? but i knew him very well. >> i'm sorry to interrupt. did you ever see any women coming and going from that home? >> i've never seen anybody come in and out of that home. i thought that the home was vacant. i thought that he probably had another property and that he would just come and check to see if everything is okay. i didn't even know anybody lived there, to tell you the truth. >> one of our producers when i think you spoke to before we came on the air said that you did recall one incident i guess a couple of years ago where you heard a scream coming from that general area. can you tell me about that? >> yeah. we heard a scream, but we -- we didn't know where exactly the scream was coming from because we were inside the house. this was a few years ago. there was a difference between, you know, a playful joking around scream with friends and this kind of scream, this kind of scream, you know, had my sister call the police and make a report, and that was a few
7:36 am
years ago. i don't remember exactly when, i'm sorry. >> were you familiar with the cases of these three missing women as we understand they all went missing separately, but this happened in your general area. you're a longtime resident. had you heard of these young women who had been missing, and had a was your reaction to find out that they had been living next door? >> i was aware of guyana dejesus and amanda berry. i wasn't too familiar with the third lady that they found. i have a lot of mutual friends that know the ladies very well, and when i found out, you know, i know -- i was excited and happy that they found them, but to tell you the truth, i felt, like a tug at my heart. i was a little drunk with emotion because to know that they were two houses from me ten years, i never saw anything, nobody really saw anything, just made me feel like we could have helped earlier, so i don't
7:37 am
>> well, juan perez, i think everyone can relate to that emotion, and we really appreciate you coming on and shedding some light on what's been going on. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> we will take a turn now to al and get another check of the weather. . >> and as we look at some of these temperatures that are going on around the country, crazy hot temperatures out west. the jet stream now has retreated up to the north, and so the northern tier of states are really toasty. look at this, yakima, washington, today, 88 for a high, 22 degrees above normal and billings at 77, 10 degrees above normal and moving across the country can you see the temperatures stay awfully warm all throughout northern tier states all the way into the northeast. caribou, maine, 81 degrees, that's 24 degrees warmer than usual. buffalo at 76, so we're talking
7:38 am

>> my mother was a force of nature. growing up i never saw anybody like her. she had kind of wild thick hair. she wore men's pants. she smoked cigars. she worked. she played tackle football. she was a competitive, forceful, free spirit, and she changed the world. >> of course she started special olympics, and she started it because she saw how much mothers who had special needs kids were actually struggling, so that was the impetus for her to start special olympics, and procter & gamble has the thank you, mom campaign which was with the olympics, so if you go on their facebook page and you share this video, they will actually contribute $1 to special olympics, so i was really pleased to be able to partner with them to celebrate mothers all over the country, all over the world for that matter. >> and i love how your piece is showing how some moms are having a voice and great to give voice to how we feel about moms.
8:25 am
>> that's right. i think it's those girls are so excited to be able to show their work and to be able to give a platform for moms to tell their story because everybody, in fact, wants to tell their story and wants to tell the gift of motherhood so i hope people go on and look at this video about mommy and think about special olympics and these heroic mothers. >> maria, always good to see you. >> thank you. >> on the "the new york post" remembering our moms and talking about our moms, we want to remind you that if you want to go on twitter and tell us why you love and respect your mom use the #todaylovesmom, and we'll share some of your responses on friday. >> okay. thank you. >> coming up, the man who gave up the internet for an entire year after your local news.

good tuesday morning, 8:26. i'm laura garcia-cannon. the santa clara city council appears to be ready to shell out more mope at the new 49ers stadium tonight. the council is expected to sign off tonight on more than $56,000 just to study whether they should paint a bike lane outside the stadium. the money will be spent to study traffic routes, possible road configurations and environmental concerns. see if there's any problems on the morning commute. check with mike. >> sure, getting a little better now. take this shot of oakland. as you're looking on the right-hand side, crews just moved from the center lane all the way over to the right. see that on the northbound side. tow truck and another crew there. fire truck blocking another
8:27 am
lane. this is why it's jammed up around the coliseum. map will show you slow out of 880, southbound direction, continues jammed all the way past 238 in toward hayward and frem, out of union city because of the earlier bleedover from 680, 580 also trying to avoid the sunol area. that is clear now. much better than this morning's sig alert. slow fremont, south bay where northbound routes kick in. not so bad, 101 and 280, laura, back to you. >> thanks for keeping tabs for us. another local update in half an hour. hope you have a great tuesday morning.

of our same morning photos that's trending worldwide. a picture of a foot, baby having breakfast. the proof of the power of the internet. asked you to take a photograph at 8:07 of whatever you were doing at that moment. there's al roker's, and you responded, just a few of the pictures. keep sending them in. now to a story that i don't know many of us could imagine undertaking. how long could you go without the internet? a few hours, a day, maybe a week while you're out on vacation at the very most? well, paul miller from theverge.com lived without it for a full year, and he survived to tell the tale. paul, good morning. >> good morning. >> first of all, why this exercise? it wasn't we should say a stunt for the magazine. this is something you felt like you wanted to do for yourself. >> i wanted to educate myself, read a ton of books. i felt if i quit the internet i'd have no time -- i'd have nothing to do other than read books, and also i was really stressed about by the internet. it was really overwhelming >> you felt you were overwhelmed
8:47 am
by all the technology in your life. >> yeah. >> you wanted to put it to the side. >> i just couldn't keep up, you know. there was always more, always more. i never won, you know. you can't beat twitter. five seconds later there's a lot more on twitter. >> what were the ground rules exactly? with retalking total deprivation, no access to the internet at all? >> absolutely. and i didn't have other people use the internet for me. the one exception. i write for a tech website called the verge. i would give them a thumb drive with the articles that i wrote and they would put them up for me. otherwise i didn't look at people's screens. wouldn't let them show me instagram, and i also didn't text message which wasn't the internet but i was trying to avoid the communication >> you went essentially back to 20 years ago. no online banking no, twitter, no facebook, nothing like that, and i understand when you started the exercise you felt like it was working, that your mind was working better and that your life was enriched. >> i was so zen, so bliss. it was really great. i was really free from all that stress and all that distraction. >> but that didn't last? >> no.
8:48 am
you know, i found loneliness and boredom like really cool and novel at first, and then it really made me creative, and i did a lot of great things for me, but also eventually i just sort of fell in on myself, and i just started realizing that my problems with productivity and dissatisfaction in life weren't really the internet's fault. they manifest differently with and without the internet and leaving the internet didn't fix everything. >> which element of the internet did you miss the most, in your day-to-day life, what did you miss? >> well, i guess i took it for granted that the internet is where everybody is now. >> right. >> not everybody else quit the internet so it was really hard to stay in people, and, you know, i really missed skyping with my family. like i've got brand new nieces and nephews i haven't skyped with, and that was real tough. >> what was it like a couple weeks ago when you finally ended your full year without the web to sort of come back into society? >> i thought i would take right to it and look at all the fun videos on youtube and have a
8:49 am
really good time. i was really overwhelmed. i'm not that good at the internet yet. i really panicked, and i think maybe we take for granted how difficult and how much of our mind is consumed trying to use the internet. it's not easy. >> it's a pretty bold exercise i don't think most of us could have undertaken. paul miller, thanks for bringing us the story. >> thank you. >> coming up, the live performance from the ground breaking act the pistol annies.
