before the holiday. good morning, everybody, from oracle. only nine teams in the history of the nba have ever overcome a 3-1 game deficit in the play- offs. the warriors took a small step towards becoming the tenth team to accomplish that feat. steph curry's health was questioned after game 5. he looked pretty good last night. the warriors led by 8 at the half. but the thunder were like cockroaches, they just wouldn't die. curry wasn't ready for the season to be open. they won 120-111. they force game 6 saturday in oklahoma city. >> i knew how we would play. um, you know, this is, um, a championship team. um, they've, um, they have been through a lot over the last couple of years, always responded well, um, from adversity, and, uhm, this was exactly what i expected. >> two other players to note.

metering lights activated. they haven't been turned on. we'll have the traffic report coming up. good morning, it's friday, may 27. i'm kenny choi. >> i'm michelle griego. a search is on for a vallejo teenager after the man suspected of abducting her was shot and killed by police. anne makovec joins us live from marin county in an area search crews are targeting. anne. >> reporter: yeah. this is one of many areas the suspect was seen yesterday on the very, very long police chase that started with an amber alert in the morning. that suspect is dead so the search right now is focused on his alleged victim, 15-year-old pearl pinson. she was seen screaming for help yesterday morning on a pedestrian bridge in vallejo. officers say she was being kidnapped by an acquaintance fernando castro, 19 years old, whose car was then seen on
security video yesterday morning around 9:30 here near the richmond/san rafael bridge. >> we currently have deputies in that area searching, looking for other clues, anything that would give us information as to where pearl is at this point. >> reporter: this is the rest of the huge search area from where pearl was last seen in vallejo. 300 miles south to solvang, that is in santa barbara county, where officers shot and killed the suspect. we have some pictures showing the moments before castro died in the police shootout. he is in a gold car leading officers on a chase. they tracked him to solvang from san luis obispo county where his vehicle was spotted because of that statewide amber alert. there is a lot of concern, obviously, for pearl's safety. she was not found with him when he was shot and killed. apparently there was some disturbing notes found in his home that really call her safety into question this morning. this is an urgent search and
we'll keep you posted throughout the day. live in marin county, anne makevoc, kpix 5. friends and family are holding out hope for that girl pearl pinson. they held a vigil yesterday at the pedestrian overpass in vallejo where the teen was last seen. >> she needs to know her family and friends are looking for her. we're all praying for her to come home safe and sound. and this tragedy has rocked our entire community and all we want is for to be back home safe. >> there were plenty of prayers and tears at yesterday's gathering. in novato, two high schoolers are in custody linked to a shooting that left a classmate dead. investigators in marin county collected bags of evidence from this apartment where one of the teens was arrested yesterday. relatives told us he is 16 years old. police arrested another novato high school student for the same violent encounter which left a second victim with stab wounds.
think third teen link to the case is on the loose. crews will be busy this memorial day weekend finishing work on bart train tracks in san leandro. passengers will have to rely on a bus bridge between the san leandro and bay fair stations from midnight tonight until 4:00 tuesday morning. the work will be mainly on the elevated structures. the ride should be safer and more quiet when completed. as for a sunny escape this weekend one santa cruz beach is getting buzz but only the bad kind. it's the third year in a row that cowell beach in santa cruz has earned first place on "heal the bay's" beach bummer list. the scores reflect water quality. officials say water on cowell is so polluted, nobody should go near it. but beaches much closer to home grace the list, as well. sunnyvale cove at candlestick point and pillar point -- sunnydale cove at candlestick
point and pillar point also earn poor marks for pollution. >> pillar point i wouldn't have thought of that. that's where mavericks syed farook year. but if you are going to be -- that's where mavericks is every year. but if you are going to go to the beach go, to capitola, lots of sunshine there today and some warmer conditions. two-foot swells, semi glassy. this is the scene towards the bay waters. we have the sky already clearing out in the city by the bay. san francisco 62 degrees. very mild in comparison to 47 degrees with the clear skies in santa rosa. temperatures average high in san francisco 64 going with 71 degrees today. half moon bay at 68. we're talking about 60 however in daly city. 80s will be common around the peninsula. 87 in morgan hill swinging across santa clara valley to the eastern portion of our bay area. we're talking 91 degrees in brentwood, tracy, oakley and discovery bay, byron. you liked that move, didn't you, george? [ laughter ] >> we are going to pick up a wind up to 20 miles per hour in
san rafael, 83 degrees there. and upstream into the cloverdale area at 87. so obviously a warming trend. it's going to be even warmer over the weekend. i'll have some new moves by 48 minutes after the hour, george. [ laughter ] a great ride around the bay bridge, normally by 5:30 you will see metering lights on and the backup forming. we are now five minutes past that and still no backup and no metering lights for the westbound bay bridge ride. we continue to track reports of a car fire here on the nimitz. but traffic is light enough leading out of hayward that there's not much backup. not much of slow traffic on 880 to milpitas. look at the 580 ride through livermore and the altamont pass, a little slowing but no backup into tracy on to 205 this morning. and the san mateo bridge is an easy ride for westbound highway
92. 13 to 14 minutes over to foster city. with all that tasty barbecue memorial day brings there are some travel downsides that none of us enjoy and long tsa lines don't help h kiet do is live at mineta airport on the headaches in store after we have zipped up the luggage. >> reporter: good morning. we are live here just outside terminal b. take a look through the window you can see that this line is already stacked deep creeping along here. it was moving okay a little while ago but as now it's going to get worse throughout the morning. now, the u.s. travel association says long lines have become a national security crisis! two-hour wait times are increasingly the norm across the country, not the news you want to hear on a holiday weekend. aaa says the number of flyers is up 2.4% this year. but tsa agents have been leaving in droves in recent years losing 10% of its staff since 2013. that has pushed wait times to at least an hour at many airports with two-hour wait times frequent.
the agency has come under fire for hiring part-time workers and so morale is low as employees leave for other full time positions. workers left behind are missing their breaks, forced to work mandatory overtime. their vacation days are being canceled and they are among the lowest paid federal employees making on average $35,000 a year. that makes tsa agents more likely to miss security threats. >> long security lines, large crowds of passengers in queues are not just an inconvenience, they themselves expose the vulnerability and security risk. >> reporter: and if you are heading out on the roads, aaa says a record number of californians will be traveling 50 miles or more this weekend. 4.6million people in california alone that's up 2.5%. so back out here live at mineta, travel early in the morning, they say, or late in the evening to avoid the rush. kiet do, kpix 5. >> kiet, you said that the tsa screeners are quitting. what's the turnover rate? >> reporter: so, um, full- timers are leaving at a rate of
about 10%. but the part-timers turnover rate is 20%. >> all right, kiet, thank you. at oracle arena warriors fans were on the edge of their seats. but the team delivered. golden state won gave 5 on their home turf last night with fans screaming making it "roar- acle," of course. after two losses on the road this game was make or break for the warriors. and fans summoned the victory with all the screaming. >> the crowd is everything. without the crowd, the energy will not be there for the golden state warriors. >> they are back. and we'll be back on monday. hello. please believe it when i tell you, you know it's the truth! >> the warriors are hosting a watch party at oracle. tickets go on sale at 1 p.m. today. facebook is thinking about a different approach to its newsfeed. jill wagner of cbsmoneywatch.com on the changes it's testing out and
more trending topics. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, kenny and michelle. the markets put the brakes on a two-day rally. the dow was down 23. nasdaq up 6. investigators are waiting for the fed chair to speak this afternoon. she will be at harvard discussing interest rates. apple reportedly floated the idea of buying time warner trying to ramp up original programming but the financial times says it never went beyond the preliminary stage. in australia facebook is testing a different version of its newsfeed organizing it by topics. facebook listed some default topics like animals, politics and travel. users could add or remove them. gas prices are down. about 40 cents less per gallon than last year at this time. but they are going up. >> jill, we hear that taco bell has a fun giveaway for the nba finals. what's that? >> reporter: taco bell is going to be giving away free tacos during the finals. the promotion is called steal a
game steal a taco. and if the away team wins during the first three games they will give away free tacos on june 15. this is a good business move. customers pick up other items when you grab the free taco. >> taco and tostada and bean burrito! >> thank you, jill wagner of cbsmoneywatch.com. james corden in a battle of rhymes with celebrities. who comes out on top? >> let's take a live look out at 880. this is in oakland. a little light out there. at least from here. george will let us know what the rest of the roads are looking like when we come back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
new this morning... this is our live weather camera looking north from the transamerica pyramid. we're looking toward the golden gate bridge. there it is! happy birthday, golden gate bridge at 79 years old. it only took four years to build that bridge. new this morning, president obama went to a place no sitting u.s. president has been to before, hiroshima, japan. it comes 70 years after the u.s. bombed them. as predicted, the president did not apologize for doing it but he did join japan's prime minister for a visit to peace memorial park to honor those killed in the blast. obama said we would all be safe near world without nuclear weapons. -- safer in a world without nuclear weapons. >> we may not be able to eliminate man's capacity to do evil but among those who hold nuclear stockpiles we must have the courage to escape the logic
of fear. >> earlier this week at japan's g7 summit the president acknowledged concerns about north korea's nuclear ambitions. now the latest on the presidential race. democratic front-runner hillary clinton is making a big push in the bay area. this morning, she will meet with community leaders in oakland at the home of chicken and waffles. yesterday she went to campaign rallies including one at the hibernia building in san francisco. she told a crowd there, she is the candidate who can unify the united states. and earlier in the day, she spoke to a crowd in san jose she intends to pass reforms on immigration and gun control. she also talked about donald trump. >> people say to me, well, you talk about trump a lot. and i do. and i'll tell you why. because what he is saying is dangerous and divisive! [ applause and cheers ] >> what is he saying is harmful to our future and our country! >> clinton needs less than 100 more delegates to clinch the democratic nomination.
shouse also releasing her first campaign ad for california today. donald trump may debate democratic candidate bernie sanders. sanders request for another debate was turned down by hillary clinton. republican trump says that he would be willing to debate sanders but only if the tv networks donate millions of dollars to charities. donald trump has now accumulated more than enough delegates to clinch the republican nomination. he needed 1,237 delegates. he went above that number yesterday after some inbound delegates pledged their support. after he got the news, trump posted a photo on instagram on his private plane enjoying a meal from mcdonald's. there are some moments on the "late late show" that just need to be repeated. >> last night, david schwimmer took the stage with corden with the rap battle and insults flew
from both sides. [ unintelligible rap ] lacking." 31 - 41 you speak english, t you can't rap. your rhymes e no high gap. don >> pretty good. another person appeared on stage to, quote, show the dudes what they're lacking. [ rap ] >> as you can maybe hear from the audience reaction, she was named the winner of the rap battle in the end. i think she's got it. [ indiscernible ] >> we should have a rap-out on our news desk. >> i'd like to see it. george and ro. >> oh, yeah. >> michelle and me. >> give me time to practice that one. >> that's my problem.
