lying on the steps at one of his neighbors house he said he -- it was on the steps he looked inside -- went back to get his father came back outside with a towel, thought it was a doll at first then turns out it was an infant child the baby's skin was ice cold, body limp, bleeding from the nose did not appear alive did not have a diaper on just wrapped in a blanket,initially he thought it was a doll it was an infant child >> as i walked back from the store i noticed, on the step of one of my neighbors, it was something was wrapped in a towel on the step, bottom step as i looked closer i seen legs dangling out of the towel because the baby was half wrapped just wrapped from the waist to head. now he says he talked to people in the neighbourhood to see if anybody knew anything about a newborn child he
thought it was about 2 weeks old a newborn child born in the neighbourhood he said no body in the neighbourhood knew anything about a young child born, right now, police are still investigating this, they are trying to determine who left this child and why they left it in this neighbourhood. >> wisdom martin thank you. new this morning dc police are searching for suspects after a man was held hostage in his own home for several hours officials say two masked suspects broke into the home around 3:30 a.m. sunday morning, one held the victim inside the house while the other took his atm card and pin number and went out the use it the man was finally released 10:00 a.m. sunday. now for a check of some other top stories, at 5 after 7:00 a.m., in just a few hours montgomery county police will release new details about a suspect in a series of home
invasions. ken ray was arrested in south carolina the. the 33 earl faces several charges including rape and assault. new development in the embezzlement case of harry thomas junior there will be another guilty plea in the case. james garvin will sign a plea deal this week he worked with a charity called langston 21st century. the head of the foundation pleaded guilty to similar charges. two women from virginia and maryland are heading home after surviving friday night's deadly cruise ship crash the women were among the 120 americans onboard the luxury liner, when it hit a reef and flipped on its side. so far six people are dead and dozens more still unaccounted for. the captain of the ship is under fire for his role in the
or deal accused of abandoning the ship before everyone was evacuated safely. a major shake up in the race for the republican nomination, john happensman is out. doug luzader has a look what is next for remaining candidates. >> we expect john huntsman to drop out of the race for president and formerly endorse mitt romney. >> i would say third place is a ticket to ride ladies and gentlemen. the ride didn't last long. john huntsman never got his footing in the race for president, he essentially bypassed iowa counting on a strong showing in new hampshire but third place there didn't give him the momentum he was looking for and with south carolina's primary less than a week away and fox news debate there tonight he is out >> i watched the president over these last three years and been disappointed he has failed
the american people. >> mitt romney is the wiper from today's announcement he is -- winner from today's announcement he is expected to get a huntsman endorsement. this poll out with 30% support nationally romney's numbers have almost doubled since december. look at number two, rick santorum his support has almost quadrupled, religious conservative leaders eventually backed santorum as their alternative to romney dispointing to gingrich and perry. while south carolina may not be huge for ron paul he plows ahead with a rock steady base of support and unless romney wins big in south carolina, the fight may continue on to florida, and beyond. i think either santorum or gingrich will stay in the race in florida and then probably into march i don't think this race will end. as for the debate tonight huntsman had been expected to attend that stage will have a
little extra room though. doug luzader fox news. if at first you don't succeed, try try again. well, that is what rick perry is doing in hopes of getting on virginia's primary ballot. yesterday his attorneys requested the court of appeals order, his name be placed on the ballot, or order that ballot not be printed or ordered before that ballot can be appealed. they said the candidate waited too long. america remembers a civil rights icon. today is the national holiday honouring dr. martin luther king junior. hundreds gathered on the nash mall mall yesterday. martin luther king the third was among the speakers at the event. >> but yes we are celebrating the best of what we are but what we must become, knowing that we've not arrived there yet. but people will come to our shores from all over our world

winchester 18, manassas 18 so you get the idea here plenty of cold temperatures as low as 13, 14 degrees actual air temperatures off to the north and west gradual warm up as mentioned high temperatures later this afternoon in low 40s. that should feel better, than what we had around here this weekened we should have plenty of sunshine. here is your sentinel sat rad we are starting off with clear skies just a few clouds for the morning hours, later this afternoon clouds will increase and 9, 10:00 p.m. tonight we will get this presip in here. very light rain and i want to mention the possibility here, one of our western viewers, some of the sheltered valleys where it is cold enough this could start off with a period of mixed ice and rain. just be prepared for that. a little sleet with it, it should change over to all rain. rainy and wet high temperatures only to be in 50s. 42, sunshine expected a little warmer than ra, sleet later tonight. temperatures above freezing your 5 day forecast, 53
tomorrow rain showers around wednesday, thursday and friday, plenty of sunshine temperatures just about where they should be, low to mid-40s. that is a lock at the forecast, back to you. all right tucker. >> something tucker likes to hear about ravens, one win away from a trip to the super bowl. >> can you believe it. >> i guess so. >> they are a good team. >> alison believes it. >> yeah they have been good. >> and they have been very good as of late defensively we know that is their hallmark they lay their hat on at night when they go to sleep they rely on that defense they did it yesterday, they are one step away from going to the super bowl not far away that is why we show our brethren in purple some love. that is one of the reasons why they got it done they have a guy named web, not a cornerback a lot of people talk about he was singled out on the texans best receiver that is johnson. here it is first period, pick
of tj yates he will take a nice route to the inside and cut off the route that is what a good cornerback does. follow the eyesover the quarterback later on in the game, web again when texans kept it close, 7 minutes to go in the game he comes up big again on a crossing route again, stepping in front of the pattern. so next week they are going up against the patriots, we know that will be a daunting task but if you can get play like this from a guy like web you don't expect it from maybe good things will happen you do extext it from a guy named ed reid there is a reason why this guy one day will go to the hall of fame people this is how good of a safety he is, and again, end of the game, down by 7, texans need a play to go to the best receiver, who is there, johnny on the spot, ed reid his 8th career, post season interception in post season he has 8 picks number 20 just comes up big play after big play he did it again yesterday
after the game head coach and ed reid tacked about their big play defense. win the game no matter what. that is what it boils down to in a situation like this and this football team, won the game. no matter what and it wasn't perfect by any stretch. but they found a way to win the football game. you know we knew it was going to be that. houston is a good team man, you know they have been a good team for a long time. >> see the patch of grey hair there, they are getting a little long in the tooth these guys know, this is their shot guys like ed ride and lewis they got to do it this year -- reid and lewis they got to do it this year. they are the number one seed. brady and the boys coming out going up against tim tebow, brady said enough of tebow, remember me, i am pretty good.
five touchdowns in the first half alone and set a playoff record with six in the game, and i think bill belichich and the boys in new england want to make a statement and say hey, look you can talk all you want about 15 he has had a remarkable run don't forget about us there is a reason why they are the top seed again if ravens want to get there they got to go up to new england and get it done next sunday easier said than done as we talk, we have been joking with tucker all morning don't bring that c game up to new england, bring your a game a c game will get rejected and sent back to baltimore. >> got to bring it strong. >> thanks gave. coming up next details on one new business here in our area, that is looking to hire more than 1500 employees that is good news. >> sure is. also ahead trying your luck with power ball just got more expensive but the extra cost could help pay off in the end. we are back in a moment with that and more 8:38 a.m. ♪

faith, i read that you have gone through your fair share of adversity challenges, what keeps you going when you thing about pamela? >> people keeping in contact with me, friends, family, calling being concerned, coming past to visit me that really gives me strength and courage. >> was enough done in your opinion to help find pamela earlier than three years that at that have gone by now. >> i don't feel like it was. i really don't. i think more could have been done. more should have been done. >> derek what would you like to see done? >> well, at this point i would like for some body to come forward i am sure some body knows something i am sure this case is not going to be solved just by the police it will have to be solved by some body in the community, some body that maybe road through and saw
something, you know, we talk about washington but washington is a tourist city and people are riding through the area, looking to see things and maybe some body saw something and it might not be some body right here in washington it might be some body in california i am just looking for closure looking for some body to come forward and give us a hand. >> a hand in finding your sister missing since valentines day 2009. i would like to thank all three of you for being with us the show airs wednesday and it is called find our missing and the show will be airing of course every wednesday at 10:00 p.m., there are ten episodes on tv 1 the first features the case of pamela butler thank you all very much. >> thanks. >> sarah over to you. >> alison thank you the washington national cathedral is celebrating the legacy of dr. martin luther king junior later on this morning. annie yu is learning more about the celebration and getting a preview of performances she
