the runway. birdie? was that her name? look at this. this jumbo jet, struggling to land. very heavy winds. flights had to be redirected after it got so bad. we're going to show you these incredible moments. i'm taking a flight after the show. that's exactly what you want to see. >> those guys do a great job. and another amazing tv reunion ahead. the entire cast of "laverne & shirley" back together. while our cameras are rolling. robin and lara are there. they have a special tribute of their own. it's part of our "gma" tv reunion blowout. i've been kept secret from this little surprise. >> well. and we didn't even tweet any outtakes from it. we've been very good. that's coming up. we're going to get to the new terror warning overnight. officials fear that al qaeda is planning a possible attack on the upcoming first anniversary of osama bin laden's death, next wednesday, may 2nd. abc's brian ross is here with the latest on this. a lot of concern. >> reporter: overnight, the fbi
7:03 am
and homeland security issued a four-page bulletin to american law enforcement in advance of next week's one-year anniversary of the raid that killed bin laden. while the bulletin obtained by abc news, says there's no specific threat. it goes on to warn of al qaeda's renewed efforts to target western aviation. and the possibility of a so-called lone wolf attack. the death of bin laden led to calls from al qaeda leaders to avenge his death. and leaders tell abc news, there will be extra vigilance at facilities in the next several days. al qaeda leadership has suffered setbacks since the death of bin laden. amman al zawahiri has rarely been seen in the last few years. as the u.s. has stepped up attacks in pakistan, where he's believed to be located. greatest concern for u.s. officials, is the al qaeda group
7:04 am
operating out of yemen. who represents an enduring threat to the west, robin. >> its not uncommon when we have the anniversaries that are upcoming to have the terror warnings. is there anything different this time? >> reporter: they feel that al qaeda is looking for a symbolic victory and desperate to achieve one to reachieve their global relevance. >> it was two years ago they had that attempted bombing here in times square. >> brian, thank you very much. that was your first day on the air. >> the first day i arrived. a stunning story to arrive to. that is for sure. hard to believe it's been a year. what do you say let's do some news? >> let's do it. >> we're going to begin with a black eye for the tsa this morning. four current and former agents have been accused of taking cash bribes in exchanged for turning a blind eye a to drugs in suitcases.
7:05 am
the agents could face life in prison if convicted. isabella had just gone through security in wichita, when she ran back to hug her grandmother, who hasn't been screened yet. the tsa says it was then necessary to pat-down isabella because she made contact with someone who hadn't yet been screened. frightening moments at this airport in spain. this plane trying to land in very heavy winds and does. that is the very definition, of course, of a hard landing. no one was hurt, thankfully. but watch what happens a short time later. another plane trying to land. could not do it. has to abort the landing. in all, four flights were diverted from that airport because of the weather. and the supreme court seems to be sympathetic to arizona's controversial law on illegal
7:06 am
immigrants. protests on both sides are now intensifying across the country. but during oral arguments wednesday, the justices did not seem troubled by arizona making its own immigration law. it does require police there, during routine stops, to check the immigration status of anyone they suspect is in the country illegally. critics call that racial profiling. the court's ruling is expected in june. and one, big fake. that's what experts are saying this morning about north korea's latest weapons haul. analysts say the missiles, you see here, showcased at a recent parade are not only fakes but really lousy ones. a so-called mishmash of components that could never fly together nor be a fourth grade science project. and finally, some people are crying foul over there. take a look at what happened last night. rangers/yankees game. two fans, catching a foul ball that was thrown in the stands. as you can see there. there's a boy, though, sitting next to them, who was hoping for
7:07 am
the ball. he's reaching for the ball. you hear, they can't give it to the kid? now, again, it's loud. the guy did just catch a ball. he's excited. let's just say, for him, though, it's a baseball. for the kid, it's the greatest day of his life. >> i guarantee the player was throwing it to the kid, too. >> of course, he was throwing it to the kid. finally, someone steps up. they did get him a ball. >> but not the ball. >> not the ball. we're going to turn to isabel celis, the 6-year-old arizona girl who fannished from her own bed this weekend. her parents are speaking for the first time as a key witness comes forward with what may have happened on saturday. neal karlinsky is in tucson, with the latest. good morning, neal. >> reporter: george, good morning. this is the house where it all happened. little isabel's bedroom is on the far side of the house.
7:08 am
her parents are not here right now. but we did hear from them for the first time yesterday. it was very emotional. but that is not all. >> we're looking for you, isa. we love you. >> reporter: the agony of sergio and becky celis, parents of missing 6-year-old isabella, speaking publicly for the very first time. >> we are here today to plea for a safe return of our baby girl, isabel. >> just please, please, to the person or persons who have isabel, tell us your demands. tell us what you want. >> reporter: as police reopened the family's street, abc news spoke to a possible key eyewitness. alecia's bedroom is just feet from isabella's, right next door. she says he was startled from sleep early saturday. >> at 6:30, my dogs were going crazy. that's what woke me up. and i noticed their dogs were going nuts. i woke up briefly. i heard a couple male voices.
7:09 am
>> reporter: she told police what she heard. she thinks the men were speaking english. but she wasn't sure. >> i think she was comfortable enough with these people to go with them. >> reporter: the fbi launched an intensive new canvassing effort, reinterviewing neighbors. and another neighbor, who following his own, apparently, tense interview with detectives, suddenly showed up with his father at the celis house. coming and going inside the front gate, even though the family wasn't there. just a sample of what police are dealing with, as they gather a mountain of evidence, but say they still do not have a suspect. all while a family waits, tortured by the thought of a little girl taken from her bedrdroom, out there. somewhere. >> we love you. we miss you so much. and we will never give up. we will never give up looking for you. >> reporter: so hard to hear. it's unclear where the parents are right now or what their plans are going forward. police say it's absolutely
7:10 am
essential that they remain cooperative. and so far, that is exactly what's happening. robin? >> good to hear that. all right, neal. thank you. now, to the high-stakes trial of john edwards. key witness and former aide, andrew young, expected back on the stand. a fiery day in court on wednesday, as edwards' lawyers asked young if he hated his former boss. abc's bob woodruff is at the courthouse in greensville, north carolina. >> reporter: good morning, robin. as you know, john edwards is one of the most unpopular men in this country. but his lawyers are getting a chance in their cross-examination for the second day in a row, to try to dig into andrew young, who is accusing him, that he lied and made mistakes and inconsistencies. we have seen for that reason, a slight change in the demeanor of john edwards. there's a little more spring in his step now. until now, his adversaries in this trial have controlled the stage. but edwards' team is striking back in dramatic fashion.
7:11 am
in court wednesday, painting andrew young, the prosecution's key witness, as a vindictive liar out to sink his former boss. you really hate him, don't you, edwards lawyer asked young. i have mixed feelings, he replied, to audible gasps in the courtroom. if they don't think he tells the truth, is the case over? >> it may be. his credibility is the foundation of the prosecution's case. if he isn't telling the truth, this whole house may crumble. >> reporter: on the stand, young has also asked about his relationship with elizabeth edwards. who young and his wife nicknamed ursula, after the evil see witch in "the little mermaid." i know elizabeth hated me. the defense team will go after young again for several more hours today. and he has given them plenty of ammunition to attack. writing a book, making dozens of media appearances. >> john edwards' slow lies. >> reporter: talking to the fbi
7:12 am
and the grand jury. each time, the defense says telling stories filled with inconsistencies. isn't it true, that in every one of those instances you lied, pressed edwards' lawyer? no, sir, young answered. i did see his wife, cheri go into the court and disappeared in a back room. but the cross-examination of andrew young will continue today, maybe tomorrow. let's bring in "gma's" legal analyst, dan abrams now. how much damage did john edwards' lawyers do to the prosecution case? >> they did some. you have to wonder whether he's pleased with a vengeance point of view or a legal point of view. young's been a mixed witness. and they have, it seems, a better argument against him on one of the two key issues. two key issues in this case. did john edwards know about it? and what was the money for?
7:13 am
young's been very powerful with regard to did edwards' know about it. as to what was the money for? was it for illegal purposes? to influence the campaign, as opposed to a personal cover-up. that's been tougher. >> when the talk of ursula comes up, it helps the defense, right? >> every time elizabeth edwards' name comes up in the case, it's actually helping to the defense. the defense's position is, this was a personal cover-up. not a political activity. that's one of the key focuses for the defense, when it comes to this cross-examination. undermine young with regard to what edwards' knew about this. crucial question. >> we've been told edwards, staring at andrew young during the testimony. will he take the stand? he has a lot of practice before juries. >> yeah. and everyone talks about how he is one of the people that are so well-spoken and so charming. i don't think he takes the stand. i think he's risking far too
7:14 am
much to face all of these difficult questions. remember, the defense is essentially john edwards' is a bad guy. you want that bad guy to get up there on the witness stand? i don't think so. >> he's been too tarnished by this. >> it's safer for them to say the prosecution cannot prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. >> thank you very much. now, to one couple's fight for a family. an indiana catholic schoolteacher, allegedly fired for getting fertility treatments. the school's pastor calling her a sinner for undergoing in vitro. abc's alex perez is in ft. wayne, indiana. good morning, alex. >> reporter: emily herx says she started in vitro, a year before she was fired, with her boss' blessings. one of the reasons she can't understand why she ended up without a job. it's a war they never thought they would be battling. their right to have a family.
7:15 am
herx, a well-respected teacher was fired last june, after she asked for time off for in vitro fertlization. but like all diocese employees, herx signed a contract to respect the catholic faith. her dismissal has some here picking sides. >> they fired her for wanting what probably everybody in the congregation has, a family. >> i'm not really sure it is unfair if she signs something that says they have the right. >> reporter: herx says e the school's pastor told her she was a grave, immoral sinner. and her actions could cause a scandal if anyone found out. herx filed with the eeoc and won. legal experts believe a supreme court decision earlier this year will hurt her chances. >> if you're a religious school, you can terminate any employee you want for any reason you want, even if it's for a discriminatory purpose. >> reporter: in court documents,
7:16 am
herx says she had no other option. she suffers from a condition that causes infertility. but the diocese stands by its decision and argues in vitro kills embryos. calling it morally unacceptable. now, herx says the doctrine the church says she violated was never explained to her. she doesn't reveal in her lawsuit whether she's progress. robin? george? >> alex, thank you. now, we get to the runaway puppy who caused all kinds of trouble at la guardia yesterday. birdie, the ridgeback, was out and caused all kinds of delays. abc's jim avila has the latest on that. >> reporter: first, it was birds on the runway at jfk. now, it's birdie at la guardia. a beautiful, brown, rhodesian ridgeback puppy, who made a flight from her cage en route from new york to memphis. she did not want to go.
7:17 am
shutting down the tarmac. delaying flights. >> the dog has me running around like crazy. >> reporter: for ten minutes, birdie would not be moved. finally coaxed into the cargo hold, as passengers aboard the plane tweeted, dog on runway at la guardia. causes mayhem. passengers not allowed to deplane. birdie and her owner finally made it to memphis. >> is the dog okay? >> she's okay. she's good. >> reporter: it's not the first time this has happened. a far less cute coyote alarmed pilots at boston's logan field two years ago. >> it looks like a coyote dead-center on the runway here. >> reporter: at jfk last summer, diamondback terrapin turtles en route to the beach to lay their eggs, were in no hurry to cross the runway as a jetblue pilot waited to take off. >> we have a couple of turtles storming the access road here. >> do we use the word storming about a turtle? >> reporter: perhaps that's why a balloon above cincinnati air
7:18 am
space was smiling. >> an aircraft just landed, reported a yellow balloon about 250 feet. and it's recorded as a happy face balloon. >> i need one of those. >> reporter: don't we all? jim avila, abc news, washington. >> my goodness. >> may that be the least of your troubles today. time, now, for the weather. guess who decided to come back home. sam champion. >> i had a little water in my ears still. >> we were debating whether or not you'd wear the wet suit. >> no. >> that was great. >> that was an awesome day. sometimes. sometimes. let's get to the boards. you know, the west has been broiling. but now, the count is in. more than 1,000 record-high temperatures in the past week. 185 yesterday. some places in west texas, also in oklahoma, have never been warmer in april. and this baking heat continues in that area today. midland at 100. lubbock at 96. ril? san antonio at 90 degrees.
