the family of four stranded for days when their van gets stuck surviving on halloween candy. but no cell phone to call for help. how they were finally found. good morning, america. happy friday. we're less than a week out from thanksgiving and so all eyes on the weather and that first snowfall of the season for millions. >> yep, the snowfall in the middle of the country, seeing major weather whiplash. a 60-degree swing. some guys golfing, that to this weather which makes you want to curl up under the sheets and ginger will have more on that. >> it could affect a lot of thanksgiving travel. a lot of work for donald trump holed up in trump tower. officials confirmed former general michael flynn has accepted an offer to serve ago president-elect's national security adviser. that is a key position for a general with a long career in military intelligence.
a general who is also courted controversy inside the government and on the campaign trail. >> we're set to learn that he met with mitt romney. we have the latest developments in washington. >> reporter: these are key posts in any administration, but as for mike flynn, he has been with trump from the beginning. two senior trump transition officials confirm that lieutenant general michael flynn has accepted the offer to be national security adviser. a controversial figure flynn roused support at the republican national convention with the infamous lock her up chant against hillary clinton. >> lock her up. that's right. yeah, that's right, lock her up. >> reporter: and in his book "field of fight" dmrin writes "i don't believe all cultures are morally equivalent." trump also extending an olive branch to former governor mitt
romney, transition sources telling abc news the two will meet this weekend and that romney is under consideration for secretary of state. the meeting coming after months of mug slinging from both sides. >> he's blaming the members of the american public for suckers. all we get is a lousy hat and he gets a ride to the white house. >> did you ever see a guy like this? he didn't like it when i said he choked like a dog. he choked like a dog. >> reporter: thursday afternoon the president-elect also sending out a memo about his meeting with alabama senator jeff sessions saying while nothing has been finalized he has been unbelievably impressed with him and his phenomenal record. >> well, i'd be honored to be considered and, well, mr. trump will make those decisions. >> reporter: but critics immediately pointing to sessions' past allegations of racist behavior. one lawyer he worked with said the senator called him boy and told him to be careful what you
say to white folks. sessions denied the allegation. away from cameras overnight the president-elect also having his first face-to-face meeting with a world leader meeting with japanese prime minister abe who told reporters after the meeting that trump is a leader who i can have great confidence in. and this morning donald trump implying he's delivering on his campaign promises to keep jobs in america. tweeting, just got a call from my friend bill ford, chairman of ford who advised me that he will be keeping the lincoln plant in kentucky, no mexico. but ford tells abc news it never planned to relocate the entire plant. robin. >> so that is not clear but what is clear is general flynn being the national security adviser. you have known him for many years. what do you make of this selection? >> reporter: he is considered highly skilled when it comes to intelligence gathering. but in this role he will be
helping to shape u.s. foreign policy. the military in all aspects. he will have trump's ear all the time and this does not require congressional approval. robin. >> all right, martha, thank you. >> more on this now from matthew dowd, also john cohen, national security official in republican and democratic administrations, also worked with general flynn. let me begin with you, as martha pointed out the general had had great successes in iraq and afghanistan. forced to leave the job as defense intelligence agency head early and has courted controversy. >> yeah, good morning, george. yes, general flynn is smart, he's intelligent. he's experienced. his military and intelligence experience will serve him well in the role of national security adviser but he's very intense and very forceful. particularly when he's advocating his ideas and he has been known to be somewhat dismissive of the ideas of others. he will have to be very open, very measured in this new role if he's going to be an effective
national security adviser to the new president. >> yeah, the job of national security adviser generally seemed to be an honest broker among the various cabinets. let me go to you, matthew dowd. mitt romney, interesting he'll come in for a meeting with donald trump to talk about the possibility of secretary of state. whether that turns out to be true or not, even talking about it, a little boon for president-elect trump. >> yeah, and i'm not surprised that mitt romney would sit down with donald trump. i think if hillary clinton had won their election that mitt romney would have sat down with hillary clinton if asked. he loves the country, has to unite. i would be surprised if mitt romney gets an appointment or even takes an appointment but a meeting is good. general flynn, this is a guy unfiltered and very much in the mold of donald trump, shoot from the hip. i'm reminded of donald trump's appointment so far with steve bannon of the kenny chesney song, "all my friends are pirate, that's just who i am." he seems to be assem blink a
pirate brigade. >> senator sessions. we talked about those allegations of racism that caused him a judgeship 20 years ago and served in the senate 20 years since then. how serious will those be in his confirmation if he is chosen for a job like attorney general? >> the senate gives great deference to the appointments of the president. it's his privilege to make the cabinet the way he wants it. in a split senate this could be problematic for president-elect trump in this appointment in this, it is a question the country is very concerned about diversity and how appeals are made and what happened in the campaign and again senator sessions could have a real problem getting approval by the senate. >> and, john, you served in national security positions during transitions as well and seeing something of a break of protocol. he met with the japanese prime minister yesterday and had dozens of phone calls but not going through the normal process of the state department if that was somewhat unusual and we've
seen many unusual things during the course of this campaign in the early stages of this transition. but this is a very important thing to remember, this administration will be taking charge of the government at a time when we are facing significant threat as broad and significant threats at home. they'll be need to be ready day one to ham a crisis. the minute the oath is administered they own any crisis that impacts the united states. >> thanks very much. much more on the transition this sunday on "this week." michael. >> thank you, george. now let's turn to phillip mena who drew the short straw in the middle of the first snow of the season in sioux falls, south dakota. good morning, phillip. >> reporter: michael, good morning. yeah, that first major snowstorm of the season has arrived here in sioux falls, giant stockpiles of this rock salt about the size of a three-story building at the ready. of our 500 tons of this will be used today to help keep those roads safe. winter is finally here.
up to a foot of snow falling in wyoming and colorado. much of it touching down at rush hour. the slick roads and poor visibility leading to dangerous driving conditions. at least two people died in accidents on i-70 near denver. the freeway shuttle down in both directions. this 15-car pileup caused by a mix of snow and sleet. massive delays at denver international airport. >> we were delayed until 4:00 and then they canceled it and said we'll have to wait till the morning. >> reporter: in wyoming, dozens of accidents as drivers fought to stay on the road on interstate 80. the snow started falling here about an hour ago and it is not letting up. up to ten inches could fall today as this storm heads east. michael. >> all right, thank you, phillip. stay warm and be safe. ginger, you have more on where it's heading next. >> blasting the east.
can you see this out of sturges, south dakota. roads look like this for so many folks and a lot of people hit the road today and air travel for thanksgiving because they have next week off. a big deal with the storm blowing through. blizzard warnings or parts of western minneapolis driving along 94 to fargo. that will be travel not advised. don't do it. give it 24 hour, aberdeen and snowfall, not just a couple inches. some will get 6 to 12 inches of snow in northern minnesota but even in minneapolis you get the wind gusting to 30, 40 miles per hour and probably west of them you have that blizzard warning, just a real quick look at the cold, the chill is no joke. feels like 5 in denver. remember when we were talking 80. >> out there golfing and all that. okay. whoo. what a difference. >> distant memory. >> thank you so much. now to an alarming confrontation with an arizona police officer caught on camera. the officer seen scuffling with a woman and then pumping her. he now says there is more to the story. our senior justice correspondent
pierre thomas has more. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. today an arizona patrolman has been placed on administrative leave after yet another controversial police encounter, as you said, caught on tape. the video is jarring. an officer punching a woman in the face during an eviction. >> hey, you can't hit a girl like that. >> look again in slow motion. a direct blow to the face. >> punched in the face two times, i was choked. it was just a brutal attack. >> reporter: but the flagstaff police officer jeff bonar who apparently has no history of excessive force claims marisa morris resisted arrest kicking and kneeing him in the groin before he hit her. something she denies. the case now under investigation. >> we became aware of this incident primarily through social media. we immediately became concerned. >> reporter: overnight authorities releasing clips from the officer's body camera showing the moments following the tense exchange. but not the entire encounter. >> stop. >> reporter: police now looking into why the officer did not turn his camera on when the
exchange started to get heated. >> i didn't do anything. >> reporter: the kasem bombic of the overwhelming prevalence of cameras and smartphones placing police under more scrutiny. it's become reflex to pull out their phones and record interactions with police. like we saw here in alabama last november when college students reached to are their cameras in unison and later recorded police beating them. back in the arizona case you can hear the bystander comforting the woman. >> i got it on camera. >> reporter: it's a complicated case. a classic he said/she said and now police under the microscope must make a judgment call as to whether the officer broke the law. >> hope they get to the bottom of it. all right, pierre, thank you. let's turn to dr. besser and there's a huge mumps outbreak on some college campuses. thousands of cases across the country this year and dr. besser, mumps seems like a childhood illness. >> right. >> there is a vaccine for it.
>> that's right. >> why so many outbreaks? >> this is a big increase, but the vaccine doesn't protect 100% of people. if you get two doses which is what you should get, that's going to protect about 88% of people. if you only get one dose of the vaccine that will protect about 78% of people. so that means on college campuses a lot of people who are still at risk of the mumps and college campuses are disease incubators, i have two kids in college. one had mumps, the other one is always sick. they're living in crowded quarters and sharing secretions and water bottles. it's a place where diseases tend to spread. >> what are the symptoms? >> telltale sign is that swelling of the cheeks, loss of the jawline because your sal varley glands are inflamed. fever, body aches, all those viral symptoms and most recover fine, though there are some who will get some swelling of the brain, rarely you can get swelling of the testicles. if you're pregnant it can affect the baby so you want to do what you can to prevent the disease
and get two doses of the vaccine and if you're sick stay away from people for five days and try not to share the stuff. you know, campus, there is a lot of the sharing and kissing. there's risk. >> a lot of the kissing. >> might not stop the kissing. >> i know. i talk to my kids. there's no way. it's not going to happen. >> you know what, you'll be answering everybody's questions on twitter. have any questions just ask dr. besser. he'll have the answer for you. >> what are you going to do. >> throw your kids under the bus. >> okay. it's on you now. >> thanks for that transition. good morning. just hours before president obama arrives in peru the secret service has released pictures of its biggest counter fifth cash bust ever. look at that. $30 million in fake bills linked to a criminal organization in peru along with printing presses. 48 people arrested. peru, by the way, is the top producer of fake american currency. nearly 200 square miles have now burned as those wildfires rage across the south. parts of georgia haven't seen
rain in two months. air quality is so bad there, children are being kept inside during school recess and people with asthma are now being told to close their windows. a dramatic call for help in maryland as a woman was mauled by a bear. she was walking down her daughter's driveway when she was attacked. the bear was apparently protecting its cub. the woman survived by playing dead but you have to hear this 911 call. >> please come now send someone now. he's broken my arms and my legs. i can't move. and i'm bleeding. and i'm gonna die, please hurry. oh, my god, here he comes. please, dear god, no, please dear god, no, hurry, sir. >> ah, she suffered a broken arm, she needed 70 stitches but she's is recovering thankfully. in business news volkswagen is cutting 30,000 jobs as it tries to recover from that emissions cheating scandal. the company is paying $15
billion to settle claims in the united states. and finally, if you want to play hooky from work and call in sick, we have the results of an important survey for you. a research firm found the best time to call in sick is 6:38 a.m. on a tuesday. that's when your claim of illness will be found most credible not on a monday or a friday because that's too close to the weekend. the best excuse you ask, stomach problems. nobody wants those details. and apparently november and december are the most common months to call in sick so just be careful. >> you just ruined that for everybody. >> i know, really. should have told us that off camera. >> 6:38 is a little late for us. >> it would like 3:38 for us. >> okay, thank you, amy. we move on to that family of four in washington state found safe and sound after they went missing for days. it all began when their car got stuck and abc's neal karlinsky has the details on how they survived. >> reporter: 48 terrifying hours huddled together inside the family van on this remote
washington state logging road came to an end with this 911 call. >> i found the people in the woods, the mcalisters. they're from grays harbor. they've been gone a few days and have two babies. >> reporter: jason and melissa mcalister along with their 2-year-old and 8-month-old daughters vanished on tuesday. this morning jason says the family van got stuck in mud while trying to go around a fallen tree on a scenic drive. stranding them. >> got dark on us and so we spent a night on the side of the road after i made a shelter. >> reporter: he says they survived on leftover halloween candy and rainwater. had no cell phone and turned the van's engine on and off in shifts to keep warm but preserve their gas. thursday morning, they heard on the radio that people were out searching for them so jason says they left a bread crumb trail of white pieces of paper behind seen right there as they hiked off looking for help. they ran into a local hunter who
called 911. >> yeah, search and rescue has been looking for you guys for a few days. >> and you said they're dehydrate fwld yeah, a little bit but they look pretty good really. >> reporter: this morning the family of four is waking up at home healthy and thankful. >> everybody is good. god is great. and happy to be alive. >> reporter: for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, seattle. >> a lot of gratitude there. >> rightfully so. >> ginger, you got more on the thanksgiving travel. >> we're about to do our own temperature tumble. 60s today, snow blowing north and the temperatures are going right with it. let's get to the weekend industries brought to you by macy's.

zebra stripes with fox tail on the back. he usually wears a fox tail in his postgame press conference. between him and antonio brown and odell beckham jr. they do great things with their shoes and sometimes pay tribute to whatever the cause is, so shoes are now the new fashion thing for these guys. >> they're the new fashion thing. >> i need a tail on my shoes. >> we'll move on. murder mystery right here in manhattan. we're learning more about two men charged in connection with killing a 26-year-old on the upper east side and linzie janis is on the scene with the latest. good morning, linzie. >> reporter: good morning, george. police say they now know how joseph comunale was murdered and believe they know who did it. the question they are still working on this morning is why. overnight two men in court charged in connection with the murder of 26-year-old joseph comunale, the connecticut man who vanished after a night of
partying in new york city. >> this is from a missing persons to a murder mystery. >> reporter: james rackover with a long criminal history and 28-year-old lawrence dilione now facing charges of hindering prosecution and concealing a corpse. >> 15 times in the chest area he was stabbed and also there is an effort to burn his body. >> reporter: police believe his body was removed from a luxury manhattan high-rise where rackover lives on this blood-stained luggage cart. >> appears to be bleach on that as well. >> reporter: police say one of the suspects helping them to find the body believed to be comunale's in a shallow grave 55 miles away in new jersey. >> a disturbing crime scene. >> reporter: investigators say comunale met rackover, dilione and three women at a nightclub. the group going back to rackover's apartment in the early hours of sunday morning. >> motive is undetermined right now. but it would be speculative for me to say anything more.
>> reporter: rackover shares a name with prominent new york city jeweler jeffrey rackover whose clients reportedly include oprah and melania trump but the two are not related. >> he actually let this young man change his name to his name. you can't adopt somebody over 18 but he let him change his name. >> reporter: friends say jeffrey had been helping the troubled florida man whose name used to be james bodouin clean up his life. >> this is asuch a triple tragedy for the young man killed and for james whose life will never be the same and for jeffrey rackover who thought he had this son he never had. he can't believe what occurred. >> reporter: police say they are still trying to determine exactly what happened inside that apartment building. both men still face murder charges and neither are cooperating. george. >> okay, thanks. let's talk to dan abrams right now. and so the body pretty gruesome story just found on wednesday but they already have these arrests moving pretty fast.
>> it seems pretty clear they had a suspect already targeted. meaning that he was reported missing as of monday. i think they knew where he was. they knew who lived there. they found possible suspect. suspects then at least one of them leads them to the body. they then find the body, you know, 100 miles away from where this allegedly happened and that's i think why this investigation is moving so quickly but trying to assess exactly who was the most culpable one here. >> you have multiple suspects right now. some charges filed but they're going to try to turn one witness against the other. >> i think they may. i think they want to know who did the stabbing, right? i mean, the theory right now is that this was some sort of fight. some sort of incident that led to this stabbing. so the question is going to be with more than one person in custody, i think they're going to want to know who is the stabber and who was there who may have helped, who may have helped conceal the body, et cetera, and what authorities may want to do in a case like this they may want to try to cut the
deal with the less culpable person and say, all right, we'll still charge you. you'll still serve some time but we'll be able to get you out a lot earlier if you're willing to help us and testify against the other person because that person could be a critical eyewitness. we don't know that to be the case right now but in these kind of cases that tends to be what happens. >> okay, dan abrams, thanks very much. >> so much going on there. now to more on former fox news leader roger ailes. he was pushed out of his job as you know after being accused of sexual harassment by some of the network's top anchors but not all of those accusing him were in such high profile positions. abc's elizabeth vargas is here with one woman's story of what she claims happened. good morning. >> good morning. laurie luhn worked for roger ailes for more than two decades. rising to director of booking at fox news. she says for much of that 20 years she was sexually aha rased and intimidated by ailes and zhu cupped to his demands for sexual favors. luhn's story first exploded onto the pages of "new york" magazine
but now sharing even more of it exclusively with us. tell me first of all why you decided to speak out. >> elizabeth, i think that i went through such hell for so many years i finally felt safe when i saw that other women were speaking up. >> reporter: for decades laurie luhn was one of roger ailes' closest associates. they met when she was 28 years old. working on george h.w. bush's first presidential campaign. ailes already a powerful media consultant. >> i wanted to meet him. i wanted to work for him. i was so exit haved. i introduced myself to him on the elevator. >> reporter: ailes invited her for an interview with his firm. >> i think he wanted to gauge what kind of person i was. if i was insecure, if i was looking for a daddy figure. >> he was sussing out your vulnerabilities. >> absolutely and i was real insecure. >> reporter: he offered her work doing research.
according to luhn, it became clear what he wanted when he asked her to meet him. >> he came to town periodically and expect me to do whatever he told me to do. >> like what? >> he said that i needed training. >> you needed training? laurie says ailes told her to trip down to her lingerie and dance for him. >> he would have me get down on my knees and tell me you're going to do whatever i tell to you do at any time, do you understand that? >> she says ailes instructed her to perform a sex act on him. >> i didn't question it and that's the big -- that was his big thing. don't ever question anything i ask you to do. >> according to her that was no aberrant incident. it continued off and on for more than 20 years. laurie too afraid to tell anyone. you know people hearing this will say, why on earth would you go along with this?
>> it's not like i was able to go and consult or cry on the shoulder of some friend, i was completely isolated. i was isolated in the workplace. >> what did you think would happen to you if you complained or tried to refuse? >> have you ever seen roger ailes when he's unhappy? it's not a good sight to see. it's pretty scary. >> toward the end of laurie luhn's tenure at fox news she filed a complaint against roger ailes alleging sexual harassment. fox news paid her more than $3 million. roger ailes is releasing hi statement to us saying ms. luhn is someone i once regarded as a friend and a person who i helped for many years. the story she is telling fabrications built on half-truths and outright lies and i can only assume are opportunistically intended to thrust her back into the limelight at my expense." we will have much more on "20/20" including details of the nervous breakdown she says she
eventually suffered as her relationship with ailes unraveled. >> oh, my gosh. quite an hour. all right. good to see you, elizabeth. thank you. you can see elizabeth's interview tonight on "20/20," part of her special report on sexual harassment at 10:00 p.m. eastern on abc. michael. >> all right, thank you, robin. coming up on our big board a thanksgiving travel alert. airlines are expecting a record number of flyers. what you need to know before you head to the airport. and a big change is coming to mcdonald's. we'll tell you all bit when we come back in two minutes with our big board.
and get a $10 gift card. toys"r"us ...awwwesome! it's time for the big board. more on today's top stories starting with this thanksgiving travel. airlines expect above average number of travelers and david kerley is at reagan national with more on how the tsa is getting ready for the crush. you spoke to the head of the tsa. >> i did, yesterday, george, he says he's ready but remember

second busiest airport in the country and workers there voted to strike. what kind of impact did that have? >> yeah, this is needless to say leverage for the union right before one of the busiest travel days so these are airline workers who clean the cabins and do other things at the airport threatening to strike over the holiday weekend. the airlines say if that happens, they'll just bring in additional people. they don't expect a major impact on chicago but if things get slowed down here it can affect the entire system. >> thank you. now to big news from mcdonald's. they announced they're expanding table service to all of its u.s. restaurants so standing in line for your big mac at the golden arches could soon be a thing of the past and nick watt is at a mcdonald's in california right now and, good morning, nick. nick, why the big change for mcdonald's? >> reporter: michael, burger joints are going fancy pants. you got guacamole all over the

success stories in "susie's senior dogs" where she highlights human dog matches and advocates for elderly dog adoption. think people are worried about medical. >> the thing, you know that i always say, just like humans, not all old dogs have medical issues. another myth is that they're not going to bond to your family because they're already formed. i in fact think an older dog is more grateful. somehow innately though know. through it all both erin and i have the same message when looking to adopt keep an open mind.
