12 and 13 years old. >> reporter: giving this sport plenty of time to take off. drone racing is not the only sport being considered for future olympic games. you mentioned that we hear every couple of years about these, including bridge. you ready to train for that? how about maybe chess? people have talked about putting that in the games. i imagine tug-of-war. i would watch for that. and not making this up. people have proposed pole dancing. >> wow. i'm not touching that one. >> me neither. >> okay. >> let's go back to the drones. how about pokemon go? >> they will propose that next. thanks so much. >> tug-of-war. >> tug-of-war would be fun. there is strength involved in that. >> back to elementary school, that was the day, right before summer. >> so much fun. >> we have to win. we do have some great weather on this last weekend of summer for most of the kids before you head back to school next week.

he won't tell me how much the new arena will cost. it should be coming in here sometime by the end of this year or the beginning of 2016. live in oakland tonight, nbc bay area news. snapchat under fire tonight after some claim the social media tool was promoting racial stereotypes. the claim centers around a photo filter tool that allows users to change their appearance to have slanted eyes and buck teeth. twitter users were outraged saying it mirrors stereotypes of asian faces. snapchat has since removed the filter and says it was never meant to offend anyone. we're excited to be here. >> up next, taking rio by storm. jessica aguirre rejoins us to introduce us to some super olympic fans. i was disgusted. i was upset. i was reviled. >> parents of missing kids call
us more. >> this is a story about spare change that adds up to seven figures. it's a story about a charity that uses kids' pictures without asking. >> that's the sad part. >> his father can tell you where he is. >> i think he's in the suburb of athens. >> greece. his mom, who is greek, took him toagens in 2010 and never came home. >> she just kept him there. >> imagine george's surprise when he stopped at this gas station and saw his picture on a donation jar. >> my first reaction is to rip it out and take it with me. this is ridiculous. >> he had given the photo to the government backed national center for missing and exploited children. but not the group on the canister, child watch. child watch is a charity that says it helps rescue missing children, which is supposed to
include free investigative services and poster distribution for families of missing kids as well as money for travel expenses. it's based in a house near orlando, florida. by phone, the founder confirmed that child watch copied the photo from the national center and put it on donation jars without asking. why did you choose to use this picture without his father's permission? >> without his father's permission, there's no reason. we just chose a photo that we thought had some potential for some success. >> as in fund-raising to make money? >> no. as in trying to find him. >> child watch didn't take any additional steps to find him. how much money did you get from child watch? >> none. >> how much did they investigate on your behalf? >> none. >> how many posters did they present with your son's picture on it to help find him? >> none. >> child watch eventually removed the photo.
but only his photo. are you using somebody else's photograph instead without their permission? >> yes. >> he didn't secure authorization from me to do this. >> this man has two missing kids. henry and helena, taken to africa by their mom. he learned that his son's picture was on a donation jar. >> i was reviled. from seeing that photograph. >> we found henry's face in san jose, collecting cash that did not go to his dad. how much financial support did you receive from child watch? >> none. >> how much investigative services did they do for you? >> none. >> how many posters did they print for you? >> none. >> robert lowery runs the official missing kids database. he said child watch may not be breaking the law but it's breaking policy. its photos are for raising awareness like this, not raising money like this.
>> never for fund-raising purposes. it would be wrong of us to do that. any other use of that we find questionable. >> that's exactly what's happening. child watch is actually a web of charities, called crisis relief network. tax filings show contributions of $3.8 million the past five years. are there a lot of problems? >> this man heads charity watch which scrutinizes non-profits. he is concerned they run five charities from a home with four people. three of whom are in don woods' family. he red flagged its tax returns. for example, hundreds of thousands of dollars in fund-raising expenses, including telemarketers, labeled awareness campaign. he can't decipher where donations actually go. >> i would advice donors to not contribute to crisis relief network.
>> don woods insists his accounting is sound. he put us in touch with parents of missing kids. one got a hundred thousand dollars. charles wonders where the rest of the $3.8 million and how much don wood collected using his son's photo. >> he should stop this. it's pure exploitation. >> one thing will stop, midway through our investigation, crisis relief told us it will no longer use kids' photos without permission. >> in hindsight now, and after this situation, we will change our policy. >> however, it will continue collecting money. george says, don't donate on an impulse. do research. >> nobody says you have to give then and there. >> charles wants law enforcement to investigate crisis relief network. >> they will see the exploitation for what it is. >> and stop it. shut it down? >> shut it down. >> in response to our questions, crisis relief network has downplayed its scale. it acknowledges places 1200
donation chars jars. do you have a tip? we investigate. >> very interesting. thank you, chris. let's head back to rio. it's about 10:35 in brazil in the evening. the olympic flame will stay lit for another 11 days. brazil's government by the way, believes a half a million foreign visitors are in rio to experience the games. among those visitors, many from the bay area. tonight a couple from san francisco who are living it up. >> i hope jessica agee ruirre i living it up with them. >> reporter: you know, you have your olympic fans. and then you have your news fans. what happens when you combine them both and head to rio? then you have the maddows who took their passions and turned it into one giant adventure
6,000 miles away from home. >> special edition of olympic update. >> she likes to play newscaster. >> for the first year since 2012 olympic update will break a tradition of hosting a party during the opening ceremonies. >> her husband likes to produce and report for their olympic updates. >> for past year, the region has battled with the zika virus. >> reporter: now they are giving themselves the overseas assignment of a lifetime. and reporting in person live in rio. >> first year as a married couple, we thought why not go to the olympics live? >> reporter: they will spend ten days in rio seeing the sights and taking in all that olympic park has to offer. >> we have nine events we're going to. pretty excited. >> reporter: including some of the marquis events while trying to break news of their own. >> we want to meet an athlete, preferably an american.
>> stoked to see swimming. we will see katie ledecky, michael phelps. >> reporter: tonight could be the night the olympic update gets its biggest ratings boost ever. >> i did mine in two takes. >> reporter: two takes, really? what a showoff. evan has reported to me that so far he hasn't seen one mosquito at all here at olympic park. they are excited because they will see the showdown tonight. lots of excitement here for everybody. big night for the final five. big night, of course, in the pool. get comfy on the couch, get popcorn. this is one to watch. >> let's put them on nbc payroll. you have the power to do that. go for it. >> reporter: i will see if i can find them. >> thanks, jessica. what does natalie coughlin think about tonight's marquis matchup between phelps and lochte? she joins us in the studio in 15 minutes to let us know.
"pokmon go" players in berkeley. it's happened three times over thieves appear to be targeting pokemon go players. it's happening in berkeley. it happened three time in the last month, most recently at monday. the victim wrestles the phone away. two other cases, the robbers punched the victim or knocked them to the ground. police made arrests in one case. if you play pokemon go, don't do it at night. it's a chunk of prime real estate, the macy's store is up for sale. the company wants to capitalize
on its current real estate assets. it will move the men's merchandise into the main store. this comes on the same day they announced the closure of 100 stores across the country. macy's plans to focus on its highest performing stores and boost online sales. the bathrooms might reopen, bart might be unlobbing t iunlo doors. it has been closed since after the september 11th terror attacks because of concern that those bathrooms could be used to stage more attacks. now the bart board is considering resigning the bathrooms and opening them again to the public. the station in san francisco and the 19th street station in oakland would be the first to reopen. that won't be until 2018 under the current plan. jeff is here. he has our forecast. >> warmer ahead. if you don't like the heat, we have coastal locations that will remain comfortable. check out this beautiful view of
hayward. look at the flag. we have 70 degrees. temperatures dropping into the 60s shortly and 50s by early tomorrow morning. we have your wide ranging forecast in just a few minutes. that's what i'm talking about. >> el nino helping to bring more whales to our coast. it's making things really lucrative for one local business.
(jet engine reving up) you hear that? that's the sound of our summer sale firing up its engines with fares as low as 69 dollars one-way. so get ready to take off ... because sale prices as low as these don't happen every day! book your low fare now at southwest.com. low fares. nothing to hide. that's transfarency. (clap, clap, ding)
1983. everything has brought me back to the sea. >> reporter: there was a time when the captain prowled the ocean looking for fish. >> i started on a fish boat. >> reporter: these days -- >> find a whale. >> reporter: he is chasing something larger. >> your adventure begins now. >> reporter: most days he is at the wheel of the kitty cat as it departs in search of whales as part of san francisco whale tours. >> right out from the minute we leave, that's all we care about is finding that whale. the first person to point out a whale gets a free pick off the snack bar. every vessel has a bible on it. it has never let us down. >> reporter: whether it's define intervention or something else, the kitty cat's whale watching excursions this year have been more fruitful than normal. >> they have been in and out of the bay. they have been along our coast. >> reporter: instead of traveling dozens of miles out to sea, the whales are traversing just a short ride down the
coast. >> if you see a spout, shout it out. my god. oh, my god. >> captain joe is excited. he gets us pumped up. >> i'm on the trail. there she blows. unbelievable. a big one. >> reporter: it has been a bountiful year for whale watching with them just offshore and even in the bay, there are times you don't need a boat. >> going where the food is. if the food is inside the bay, they will be in the bay. >> due to the climate change and el nino, this has been the best whale watching year on record for me ever. >> it's awesome. it was amazing. i never seen anything like that before. >> reporter: it's a bonus for tourists shopping in union square one second staring at the world's largest living creatures an hour later. >> you can't believe how big they really are. how am it is. >> reporter: as thrilling for
passengers, it's safe to say the most excited person on this boat -- >> oh, yeah. >> reporter: is the guy who has seen it all before. >> there she blows. >> reporter: nbc bay area news. >> i want to be on his boat. you see a spout, shout it out. >> we were shouting. >> i saw a spout. if you go whale watching, bring a jacket. it's chilly along the coast. we have warmer temps inland. >> we do. the fog will stay put over the next 24 to 72 hours. el nino, which helped to bring us more of the whale watching is certainly changing right now. not expecting nearly as much great activity over the next six months. here is the reason why. el nino continues to dissipate at this hour with a storm track lifting to the north. rain will increase late september here in the long rangeout look. we have a 55 to 60% chance of la nina forming as we head into fall and winter.
it can mean above or below average rain. more coming up in 35 to 45 days as the updates continue to come in. a look at the temperature trend. walnut creek, 90 today. down to 85 and dipping into the 60s by 9:00 tonight. let's push into tomorrow morning's forecast. we have the classic fog coming back to san francisco, thick with areas of drizzle and 53 to start. north bay, cloud cover and 55. peninsula, 54. south bay, we start at 59 degrees. the weather pattern is all about this area of high pressure continuing to build offshore. storm track to the north pushes well off towards the east. this can bring this hotter air from the desert southwest. it's going to be a battle between fog at the coastline and this hotter air kind of moving in here from the east. as we look at the forecast, we can handle this. it's our classic weather extremes. 88 expected in san jose. the peninsula, a chillier 61. over to palo alto, 80.
san francisco, we stay with the 60s and the cooler westerly wind. hottest temperature tomorrow, right here in livermore at 94. a breeze coming through the east bay hills. for the east bay, walnut creek, 92. in the north bay, santa rosa at 85 degrees. the extended forecast in san francisco gets it warmer, but certainly not hot by any means. upper 60s as we head into next monday and also tuesday. for the inland valleys, we do have warmer weather coming on up as we mentioned. by saturday, 96 in the inland valleys. we will stay with the mid to upper 90s monday, tuesday and also on wednesday. hot weather coming our way. it's summer. it's what we're used to. >> we will enjoy it. >> thank you. 12 time olympic medallist natalie coughlin is here. >> she's right there.
start saving your money, because tickets will be pricey. the nba released its schedule today. the warriors are playing christmas day. >> can i borrow some money? >> no. i don't have any to loan you. >> the warriors and cavaliers, they will meet in cleveland on christmas. the warriors open the season at home against the spurs. these on october 25th. another highlight, february 11th, when kevin durant will make his return. this time as a member of the warriors. back to our olympic coverage.
>> 12 time olympic medallist natalie coughlin is here with us. now we don't have to go far to be with you. >> we are in the bay area. we are enjoying the olympics. >> it's nice. it's far for me. but i'm enjoying it. >> i'm glad you are here. we have to talk about the showdown between lochte and phelps. friends and roommates. they are teammates. now they are rivals. you know them both. >> they have been rivals for a long time. swimming is a close-knit community. we know each other very well, sometimes too well. between the two of them, they have won the 200 im at every major international competition for over a decade. most of them have gone to michael. but ryan has won a few times, too. he has broken the world record. he is incredible. it's going to be the showdown. i don't know who i would put money on. >> you have been part of this media machine.
are they really friends? you know them. >> i think it's a friendly rivalry. i don't think they're besties. i don't think they have the lock and heart. they are friends who happen to be fierce rivals. >> well said. on the women's side -- this is something you can speak to beautifully. you have been with her, missy franklin. the break skroout star in londo. what's happened? how come she's not that big star anymore? >> i think the biggest thing with missy is that she won four gold medals and a bronze in london. so we're expecting nothing less. she by her own words is struggling this olympic games. it's tough. if she was anyone else other than missy franklin, she would be -- everyone would be so proud of her and excited for her. i think she's just set the bar so, so high. i think that's what we are experiencing. she's still swimming very well. hopefully, she will close out
the meet on a positive note. >> is there something you notice in the wo in the pool she's doing? >> technically, she's just a little bit lower in the water. that could be the smallest amount of change. we're pulling our body through the water. you want to skim the surface. every little bit makes a big difference. >> like drag? >> yeah. i think she's just swimming a little lower in the water. it's a few technical changes. hopefully, she will get her mojo back for the next few races. >> you have been at the olympics together, right? >> we got this from the files when we were in athens together. >> when i had no eyebrow. >> five medals and one a gold right there. take us through. >> that was probably my 100 backstroke gold, which was my first gold. i remember it was special because there were only 6,000 people in the stands. i was able to pick out my parents and my grandparents and
my sister and my now husband, boyfriend at the time. and a few friends. it was an intimate moment. i remember when the flag was being raised, i was singing the national anthem and i remembered millions of people are watching me and i forgot the lyrics. >> everyone back home watching you. >> and the world watching. >> it was a really cool experience. one that i -- even though so many years ago, one i will never forget. >> you were there for all those moments. >> we were watching it as well. we were so proud. >> we have a big night ahead. >> a very big night. i'm excited. i don't know who will win. >> we have questions for natalie, we will be on facebook live. right now, just your guide, gymnastics all-around final and the pool, lochte and phelps. >> turn on your tv. olympics soon. have a good night. >> that will do it for us. good night. >> bye.
