in mexico we think over the weekend. last night category 3 hurricane became the strongest storm this earlier in the season. let's look at what's going on the eastern seaboard. remember, this low is not a tropical depression or even a tropical storm yet, but we feel like it's got a 75% chance that it will develop to that strengthen with the next 48 hours. it could be a real problem for the carolina coastline and the florida shorelines, so everyone is going to be staying up with your local abc stations. we'll break it down for you. your travel forecast, holiday forecast. day by day. now to they jor case in the etan patz. this man, pedro hernandez has confessed to killing etan patz. 33 years to the day of the crime. abc's david muir is here with the story. good morning, david. >> it was 33 years this morning that mother left her boy off at
the stop. watched their 6-year-old boy walk to school. they could see the other children lining up the street. she went inside and never saw etan again. this morning, 51-year-old pedro hernandez is in a jail cell. seen here in pictures obtained by inside edition. under arrest for etan patz's murder. he gave a tearful confession. the suspect was 19 at the time. allegedly telling police that he lured little etan away just steps away from that bus stop, promising him a soda at the small corner store where hernandez worked. >> he then led him into the basement, choked him there and disposed of the body by putting it into a plastic bag. and placing it into the trash. >> reporter: abc news learned that the police were led to
hernandez after a tip from a family member or friend. who told authorities they should look at hernandez. new york police commissioner said that hernandez allegedly told family members over the years that he had, quote, done a bad thing, killed a child in new york and overnight the suspect's brother in law acknowledged stories had been shared within the family. >> there was several years ago, he did something. i -- >> reporter: it was a month ago that new york police and fbi were turned to that soho basement. they were looking for human remains but found nothing. the new york application commissioner now believes they have their man. >> detectives thought that it was a feeling of relief on his part. we believe that this is the individual responsible for the crime. >> reporter: etan patz's parents were told of the break of the case before of the arrest. all of these years, they changed their phone number and they
moved, they always hoped that etan would come home. >> the thoughts in the back of our minds that we should be here. >> reporter: what he would say to him now -- >> why didn't you confess years before? >> reporter: etan patz were in kim bridge when he was confessing for crime. national missing children's day. today, this country will mark that day. this time w murder charges for the man that held that secret for all of these years. let's bring in dan abrams. this is a head scratcher. dan, they get the tip, after the search, searching in the wrong place, find this guy, he makes a confession, yet are highly skeptical when it cofirst comesn for good reason. >> someone else responsible in the civil case in 2004. digging in a different person's basement and now a third person
comes up as a possible suspect. you got to understand why some investigators are going to be suspicious. you got the fact that you got relatives who are making these comments and you got where he lived at the time. those are two objective facts. then you combine that with what they believe was a truthful confession, then who knows what happens down the road? as far as authorities are concerned right now they believe that confession and they move forward. >> let's talk about down the road. people make false confessions all the time. there isn't going to be physical evidence 33 years later. >> the first question is, does he plead guilty? after this kind of confession, after a 3 1/2-hour tearful confession, does he plead gmt. if he does not, there could be some challenges. the key will be the testimony of relatives, the key will be any objective facts they have.
any kor rob baiting evidence. that confessssion is going to b absolutely crucial. >> and finally, what about that civil case? another man found responsible for the crime sf. >> they'll have to -- somebody is going to have to move forward to have that case dismissed. someone who's already serving time on a child molestation case, he or one of the lawyers involved in that case -- josh elliott with the top head lines. we'll begin with a developing story across the southwest right now. a massive firefight across six states. first take a look at these new images of a raging wild fire in southern california, 100 homes have already been evacuated in a rural part of san diego county as several highways there had to be closed. meanwhile in new mexico, take a look, dry conditions and heavy winds have helped two fires merge. so out of control at this time, firefighters can only watch from the sidelines. dozen homes are destroyed.
at least 170 square miles have been burned across he new mexico, arizona, colorado, utah and nevada. troubling new signs this morning that the u.s. economy and the global economy as a whole are slowing down. here at home, new figures show that businesses are in fact cutting back on spending especially on things like machines and computers. overseas china just reported another big drop in manufacturing for the 11th consecutive month and the european economy has taken a dramatic turn for the worse. the biggest slump there in nearly three years. new abc news poll shows that voters are split over whether they prefer president obama or mitt romney. americans believe that romney would do more heto help financi institutions. and president obama to help the middle class. the two men neck and neck when it comes to fighting for your
family. and that poll will be one hot topic when jake tapper fills in for george sunday on "this week." and a stunning claim this morning -- straight out of the cold war. a russian intelligence official has been quoted by a moscow newspaper accusing the united states of sabotaging russia's new superjet. causing it to crash earlier this month in indonesia, possibly by jamming signals from the ground. all 45 people onboard that flight were killed. russia claims that the plane was working perfectly, although only one of two of its black boxes has been found. time for debates in parliament. arguments about russian becoming the official language, one guy had to be taken in with a
bloodied nose. just another thursday in the ukraine. nearly got it done. that pushed that piece of legislation through. indeed. >> thanks, josh. we have a pretty stunning story right now about a life-changing twist for a california man. when a high school student accuse him of rape, he's been cleared. good morning, john. welcome to "good morning america." good morning. with the help of a new legal team from a california innocence project the accuser's original story was picked apart. finding contradictions about where the assault even took place. in the end, the star athlete got a chance to finally clear his name because of facebook. for the first time in a decade, brian banks is what his sweat shirt says -- innocent.
>> ask the court to grant the petition -- >> reporter: late thursday, the former football star, let out years of pent-up emotions as the judge cleared him of charges that he kidnapped and sexually assaulted a high school classmate in 2002 banks spent nearly six years in jail. he was labeled a sex offender and was still serving probation. back in high school, banks was one of the top players in high school. he had dreams of going pro. but those dreams came crashing down when a 15-year-old classmate a friend, accused him of assaulting her in a school elevator. banks said they only kissed, that he did nothing wrong. >> at the time it was hard for me to comprehend. >> facing 40 years to life, his
attorney advised him to take a plea deal. >> it was my decision to make and my decision only. >> reporter: years later, the case took a remarkable turn when banks was released from prison. his accuser now an adult reached out to him on facebook. she asked to see him. >> we were the only ones who knew what actually happened. i expressed to her, i afwreed to meeting you but i need the help in telling the truth, first. >> reporter: she confessed to making the whole story up, telling him that she wanted to help clear his name. >> i don't have any feelings about her. i don't give her any thought. >> reporter: this morning, that tape has given banks a new lease on life. he's training. still dreaming all of years later of playing in the nfl. >> if i can get my life back, i can do anything. >> and at this point it's not clear if the accuser will face
any chargers for lying or forced to give back the $1.2 million that she won in a settlement. >> i hope he gets a shot at a football career. >> the story isn't over just yet. we'll turn now to a stunning home invasion, 21-year-old college student walking right into a mansion in the middle of the night. the home owners forced to shoot her and then a chicago 911 call is made. our affiliate in denver has the whole story. >> 911. >> reporter: the call for help came from this home at about 3:30 wednesday afternoon. this somebody, 21-year-old zoe, a student at cu. >> yes, she's in this house now. she's awake. she's fine. but she's shot. >> reporter: shot by the caller's husband, a complete
stranger to the couple. >> she walked into our bedroom and we told that we were looking at her, she kept into the bedroom. >> reporter: she's alive and talking on her cell phone. in fact the caller herself starts to question the woman, upon the suggestion of the operator. >> do you have any weapons on you? what? why did you just walk into our house when we were screaming at you to get out? >> she's seems kind of stoned or something. >> reporter: investigators said that her blood alcohol level was well above the legal limit. she entered the property through an unlocked door. more than five minutes later, the ordeal was over. >> i'm getting off. thank you. >> the husband in this case won't be charged but he's protected under colorado's make my day law.
>> that is one, lucky girl. and all of you, if you're hitting the road this memorial day weekend, you have plenty of company, 35 million people. good news, gas prices are down. if you're traveling some things that you'll want to know, linsey davis in jersey city, new jersey, this morning. doesn't seem too bad yet? >> reporter: it is not bad at all. good morning to you, george. traffic on this road is normally horrendous. the fact that traffic is moving, a good indication that there's still time to dodge the traffic bullet. two things to note, especially this memorial day weekend versus last, people are expected to drive shorter distance but more people are expected to be on the road. let the grid lock begin. for this first mass e exodus of
the year. >> we're going to savannah beach. >> we're traveling to pennsylvania. >> they're among the estimated 35 million americans planning their escape. 50 miles or more away from home. like me. packing is likely the least painful part of the trip, because half a million more people than last year all have the same idea, about 31 million of them will be on american roads. at least gas is averaging $3.68. down 26 cents. still people are looking to economicize. american travelers are expected to travel only 642 miles this weekend. 150 miles less than 2011. based on the hundreds of millions done on kayak.com, common locations are sin city, the big apple, hit the beach or hit the jackpot in atlantic city. >> the biggest differences year over year was, atlantic city,
which jumped 94% from 2011, followed by myrtle beach and then virginia beach. >> reporter: not just the destinations that seem scaled back, it's also what people are willing to spend. only about $2.5 million people are expected to fly. which likely why i i'm trying to strategize about when to leave home. >> i personally like to get out of town as early as 4:00 a.m. i know that sounds a little ridiculous. if you're going to avoid the traffic that's when you got to go. >> keep in mind, aaa is offering it's tow to go program. anyone intoxicated at a bar can get a ride home. good morning, everyone. we're live in central park for the start of "good morning america" summer concert series.

mentioning overall views the middle east bedroom including views of apparent blood on the floor. the room with the apparent blood is the missing 6 year-old's. nowhere in the document is there a mention of a ransom or any notes found inside. >> please, please, to the person or persons who have isabel, tell us your demands. tell us what you want. >> reporter: outside of the house, footprints. multiple officers reported footprints on a utility box behind the home one report says a possible entry or exit point that could have been used to get over the wall that surrounds the entire house. a car that could have been seen parked outside had many items removed. including a white and a vinyl shower cap that had stains. >> hello, i need to report a
missing child. >> reporter: the father sergio who appeared so calm on his 911 call, told police that he fell asleep on the couch watching a prerecorded baseball game. >> i didn't check on her. >> reporter: isabel celis has been missing for more than a month. even though many more reports remain sealed, police still don't have a suspect. for "good morning america," neal car lins skooe, seattle. let's bring in brad garrett, what do you make of this theory, somebody stade at the house owed somebody money and the girl was taken r taken as ransom. >> what happens so many times in missing children cases is that people start to sort of guess or
project what may have happened to this child. so, is it relevant? perhaps it might be. what's interesting in this last month, we have not heard the tucson police talk about it. or any other leads other than a reference to an an uncle in the house. so, is there something to it? perhaps. i don't know. you have to take knit the context that we only really know that it's an uncle and that he possibly owes money to somebody >> also, for the first time, we're hearing about these footprints found on an electric box on a wall in the backyard, how significant is that if. >> in and of itself alone it doesn't mean a lot. the key in cases is to collect and preserve, perhaps those footprints could become relevant later down the road. they may be able to match it up
to shoes later. the other possibility would be dirt from that particular pole and to her room and perhaps to another location or another pair of shoes found later in the case. >> and of course, now we're hearing about blood evidence that may have been found not only in isabel's room but in a car parked outside of the family home. >> again, are we talking quantity, founding blood in house is fairly common, where is it, how much of it and do the two really match? in other words, the blood outside the house, does it have to do with the blood inside the house? >> all right, brad garrett, still questions on this mysterious case that every hopes will have a happy ending. thank you. >> you're welcome. a different kind of story, this fearless kayaker that took one of america's tallest
waterfalls and won. here's john berman with one of america's ultimate dare devil. >> reporter: check out this majorly huge waterfall. there in the corner. see that tiny dot, turns out that's one crazy dot. he's in a kayak, hurtling over the waterfall, 189 feet. 189 feet. taller than niagraa falls. just 24 years old. he's already a legend in freestyle kayaking. >> it's an addiction to adrenaline. >> reporter: flying over falls. on top of white water. threw treacherous ravines. he does it with a drive that even he says he doesn't understand.
>> i think in my mind, man, you're so stupid. >> reporter: he's just the second kayaker to survive this plunge. ortiz said that he was so hyped up he barely slept for five nights before the stunt. >> the free fall, that's the moment, i think i live for. >> reporter: when he went over the falls, it was liked being tugd by water. taking him on a huge ride. that ride ended fast and hard. when ortiz hit the water at the bottom the force was so strong, it ripped him out of his kayak. technically it doesn't count as an official jump. still, it's technically awesome. for "good morning america," john berman, abc news, new york. >> it doesn't count. that doesn't seem right at all. we'll look forward to the documentary that's going to come out of this project. now back to the park with
sam champion and the weather. >> hey, george, good morning. a shot of the crowd this morning that's already fwatherring at central park. little myself, a little drizzle. josh, it's not too damp. all right, let's get to the boards. if you're in new york city, you actually should be here. i can squeeze one or two more people to see robin thicke. >> it might feel like early august. >> it's going to feel warm over the next couple of days. the warm air does get to new york city, saturday into sunday. we got to get rid of this moisture on the east coast. degrees and not toees.
day in washington. we will see the clouds breakup and get into sunshine. warm and muggy. ghs >> now, it's time for that "good morning america" pollen report. grass pollen is the dominant problem across the country this week. one or two hot spots that we're showing you in the area of red. if you're suffering with allergies and you want to know what your pollen levels are, go to abcnews.com at yahoo! -- gma at yahoo!. that's it. that's the pollen report. george if. >> thank you, sam. coming up here -- sharon stone under fire. why her former nanny is suing her right now in a real-life drama. some places i go really aggravate my allergies.
but there are foods that i had no idea had so much acid in them. my dentist said that the acid in fruit, or fruit juice or fruit teas softens the enamel so that then it can potentially erode. once that enamel is gone, it's gone. my dentist recommended that i use pronamel to help harden that enamel so that it's not brushed away. pronamel protects your teeth from the effects of acid erosion. i don't have to cut out the things that i love in my diet. i can have the best of both worlds with pronamel.
heartless movie characters. now a nanny that sharon stone hired for her three children is suing the oscar nominee accusing her of acting badly in real life. >> what are you going to do snr. >> reporter: she worked for stone for five years. promoted to head nanny. two years ago claimed that life became unbearable. >> ms. stone was alleged to be abusive to ms. elemen. >> reporter: in her lawsuit, she claims that stone complained about her filipino accent. she said that stone equated filipino to being stupid. stone's spokesperson that the nanny is simply looking to cash in and that this is an absurd lawsuit filed by a disgruntled former employee.
the lawsuit also claims that the stone demand tad the nanny return overtime money. she also claimed that stone wouldn't let her read the bible in her own room. sharon stone is hardly the first celebrity to be accused by a former employee of mistreatment. courtney love as well as kobe bryant and his wife have also had housekeepers sue them. >> in a lot of cases, celebrities say paying someone off is probably going to cost me the same thing it will cost me to fight it in court. >> reporter: elemen won't disclose how much money she's seeking from a boss she considers stone cold. >> that's going to be some courtroom.
