12:00 pm
right now at noon.. a massive search for a >> right now at noon, a massive search for a missing father on the alafia river. good afternoon. thanks for joining us. deputies say william m watercraft monday evening and never returned. fox 13 is live at the river right now and josh, what is the latest first on the search effort and what do investigators think happened? this is a real mystery here. >>reporter: yeah. at this point they don't know what happened. they are continuing their search at this hour. we've been watching as sheriff's office boats have been speeding up and down the alafia river. many have sonar on board as they
12:01 pm
we've also seen the helicopter flying overhead. it is using infrared technology to search for him as well. i can tell you, there is a lot of concern out here because when it comes to these searchs, of course, time is not on deputies' sides. let's recap exactly how we got to this point. just before 6:00 last night, the sheriff's office is notified that william morris is missing. he's 38 and from river view. he had just taken his 3-year-old son out on the jet ski. later when his wife face timed which was, of course, a red flag. that child was found safe on island 75 in the middle of the river as was the jet ski along with an adult life jacket and we know morris' wallet was in the ski as well. since then, crews have been searching high and low all through the night until about 1:00 a.m. but so far, no sign of william morris. >> we have no changes during the
12:02 pm
we have several people involved with this. as you know, we have a small child we are continuing to interview and we are now picking up the search. we will continue to search for the gentleman and continue to hope that he is safe and sound. >>reporter: that 3-year-old appears to be fine. a good samaritan found him on the island, stayed with him. he will be an important part of this search. deputies will try to speak to him to see what, if at this point, it's anybody's guess but rest assured, the sheriff's office will be out here until there is a resolution. back to you. >> thank you and of course, i know you'll be following this and bring us an update on the 5:00 news. we're following a news alert out of baltimore. this is the scene of a crash involving a school bus and a city bus that left at least six people dead. the police chief says five of the people killed were on the commuter bus. sixth was a driver of the school
12:03 pm
could rise since emergency personnel have not been able to fully search the bus yet. 10 people are at the hospital, including a school bus aide. driver of a third car, and eight passengers from the bus. >> it went into oncoming traffic and stuck an mta bus on its driver's side and basically ripped the entire drive's side off of the vehicle. it literally exploded in the bus and it's catastrophic damage. >> the accident is one of the more horrific they have ever seen. a mother and her two kids are dead after a tragic halloween night crash near meridian, mississippi. mississippi highway patrol say they were riding on a trailer when they were hit by a pickup truck. investigators say the 33-year-old mother as well as her 8-year-old and 2-year-old daughters died at that scene. six other people on the float were taken to area hospitals in
12:04 pm
investigators say a jeep was pulling the float. neither driver was hurt. hillary clinton is returning to the bay area this afternoon and folks are already arriving to see her. she'll hold an early voting rally at pasco hernando college in dade city. the doors open at 1:00. and we will, of course, have a full report coming up at 5:00 for you. former president bill clinton is also coming here to campaign for his wife. he will attend a rally in st. petersburg. doors forha 5:30. and we are exactly one week from election day. as the candidates hit the campaign trail today, there's both old and new attacks coming from both sides. republicans using fresh firepower to hit democratic rival hillary clinton over the reopening of that f.b.i. investigation into her emails. while clinton reminds voters of what her opponent has said about women over the years.
12:05 pm
to campaign, the candidates are making their final push. republican nominee donald trump laying out his latest argument for why his democratic opponent hillary clinton is unfit to be president warning voters if clinton were to win, she could be prime ministered over her emails while in office. >> we'll be facing the very possibility of a constitutional crisis. she's not going to win the election but i'm just saying -- >> the latest f.b.i. probe into clinton's email connection to her top aide's estranged husband, anthony we weiner, is providing fresh fodder for the campaign as the f.b.i. reopens the investigation into his rival. >> two very selfish people who put their personal interests before the safety and security of the nation z. >> today the nominee is in florida hoping to pivot
12:06 pm
back to trump's alarming behavior toward women. >> do you treat women with respect? >> i can't say that, either. >> that new ad running in key swing states as the former secretary of state makes her closing argument on why she believes trump is unfit for the office. >> we want an america where women are respected. >> a record 22 million ballots have already been cast as early, in-person voting continues in a number of states, including paul ryan told fox he voted for trump. >> let's bring in political editor craig patrick. clintons are here in florida. trump has been in the state as have the vice presidential candidates so we know this is the key state to win but why? >> it's the key state for donald trump. if you look at the math, it makes basic assumptions which states go red and blue.
12:07 pm
he cannot win the white house without winning the state of florida. it is the ultra battleground state and hillary clinton knows it and knows effectively if she wins, it's check mate. she's trying to close the deal in florida. donald trump knows he cannot afford to lose the state and what we're seeing in florida, there are not as many undecided or uncommitted voters in the state as there are in other swing states like, for example, new hampshire and colorado. and with this is not so much they're coming to f no. they're trying to rev up their base to make sure they get out and vote and you're already seeing a big surge in early voting, really on both sides. it's showing right now to be very, very close in the number of republicans and democrats who have already voted. >> so anyone's game at this point in our state. are we getting a better idea how the f.b.i. investigation into clinton's emails is affecting the race? >> we are and we'll have a better idea this time tomorrow because our polling is in the
12:08 pm
halloween. you might miss young parents, for example, but we're looking at, at least a 1% drop for hillary clinton and i would say as the focus continues to remain in the news cycle on hillary clnton and the f.b.i. investigation and james comey, i think that will continue perhaps to bring her numbers down another point or two. and you're already seeing some parity in the popular vote across the na well tie the race but again, we're going to have a much better idea where florida is lining up after the f.b.i. bomb shell with our polling out tomorrow afternoon. >> we'll see you back here at 5:00 and again tomorrow. thanks, craig. usf student is accused of robbing a pizza delivery driver with a toy gun. usf police say that cantrell approached the delivery driver and said he wanted the pizza for free.
12:09 pm

12:10 pm
public, that's going to be on friday. the cross bay ferry left st. petersburg around 10:00 this morning and docked near the tampa convention center where mayor kriseman was greeted by mayor buckhorn. >> the credit belongs to this guy right here. he's the one that had the idea. he twisted my arm until i couldn't move anymore. he got the money out of all the counties. it's a win-win for everybody but mayor kri credit for you. >> thank you. it was a fantastic ride and i think the thing that people will love the most is seeing our two downtowns from the water. it's a totally different perspective. >>reporter: you can see the two mayors hugging it out there as kriseman got off the boat and kind of funny. the mascot for the rays, raymond, got in on the action as well which caused a little laughter as both cities are vying over the location of the possible new stadium.
12:11 pm

average high for the month, november 78 degrees. average low is 60. this is actually our driest month of the year and the month of november, we average 1.55 inches of rain so you can say that rainy season, it's officially over. of course, we've noticed that really the past several weeks. but we've had some pretty big extremes through the month of november. we've seen it up to 92 gr november 4. actually we had 92 degrees back in the 1970, on november 25. we were all the way down to 23 degrees. so what we expect for this year, across much of the southeast, we're talking about warm temperatures but over florida, seasonable. so about average as far as the temperatures are concerned. but most of the country is actually looking for a fairly warm november across the

12:20 pm
weekend once again. high pressure mainly in control along the eastern third of the country. cold front is slicing through the middle of the country. cooler temperatures behind that front but you see that push of mild air out ahead of it. right now the front is quiet but as it starts to make its way into the southeast, probably going to see at least a little bit of shower activity along that frontal boundary. that high will tend to break down a little bit as we go through the next couple of days. we'll so moderate humidity, warm temperatures in the mid 80s and here is the front heading our way. late friday, notice a little shower activity with this as we go through friday as well. so we'll keep the rain chance 20%. mainly sunny skies for today. daytime high is 86 degrees. pleasant night for tonight. low temperature of 68. again for tomorrow, we're on the warm side. daytime high of 86 degrees on the water. winds out of the northeast at 15 knots, seas two feet with a

12:30 pm
the law left over several exemptions that allow businesses to get your private information without your consent. for things such as used in motor vehicle recalls, various insurance activity, research and toll booth operations. and according to the state of florida, a lot of businesses meet those exemptions. in two years alone, the department of highway safety and motor vehicles brought in 150 personal driver information to companies in bulk. states you shouldn't be concerned about it and they heavily vet information that wants to buy your information. in fact, a state spokesperson said that repeatedly. >> it's heavily vetted. a numerous processes to vet and all those agencies are heavily vetted by the department. >> when you say heavily vetted, if we can go back to that, what

says, we want to purchase amounts of personal date on of -- data of floridians, what do they do to use this purpose? >> i hate to do this to you, but i have to follow up. >> we repeatedly asked to make sure they'll use your information legally. several weeks after our interview, the state dmv finally sent an email saying the department vets the companies by confirming they have a registered business name attorney robinson says that's a problem. >> all they have to do to get the records is basically swear by penalty of perjury that they're using that information for an allowed purpose. there's really no furniture ch-- no further checks than that and no further balances than that. >> and anyone can sign up with the state registry. >> you can file a fictitious names in a matter of weeks.
12:32 pm
wa-la. you have a sole prioritiship with a fictitious name. >> fox 13 spent four months researching who has been buying your private driver information. we found some companies don't have a florida business registration. other companies seem to have no footprint at all apart from a state business registration. no website, no store front, no answer when we tried to contact them. then there are large companies you may have heard of. the state of florida sells brokers like experian. both have been the subject of multiple congressional inquiries about how they use the information they collect. >> and the average american is almost certainly unaware of the largely unregulated space in which these companies have been operating while they've been amacing detailed information about individuals' lives. >> federal law says the state

marketing without your express permission. so how are data brokers actually using it? >> the entire point is to connect people that are creating data to people that want to sell them things and that is marketing. that's the entire business model for them. >> patrick tucker is the technology expert and the author of "the naked future." what happens in a world that anticipates your every move. he questions how data brokers could keep driver info entirely operations. >> why would you collect all of this information from all of these different places across like the entire both online and physical world if not for groups of people that you then - sell to people when you do targeted marketing. >> we discovered some companies have been sued over allegations they misused driver data purchased from several states,
12:34 pm
lawsuits have been filed in the past few months. there's dominion. according to a class-action lawsuit, they used driver records in violation of the driver protection act. florida is currently selling your information to the company for one cent per record on a regular basis. then there's the company called national recall and data services. according to a federal class-action lawsuit filed against the owner, charles holly, the company released private driver data to other companies in violation of law. state dmv in texas cut off the option to buy driver data. one -- a spokesperson said that
12:35 pm
return a response that he was not using your data and he never did. direct marketing ads are why fox 13 first started investigating whether the state is truly keeping your private information safe. after attorney robinson recently bought and registered a car, he started getting direct marketing ads, too. >> it had to have been through the state records. within a week, no one else could have gotten the information that fast. >> the risk goes beyond junk mail. if private information, who else can? >> that was tina jen son reporting. she said the concern is that many companies resell the information online for a few bucks to anyone willing to check a box claiming they have a real reason to access your information. our investigative team will continue to follow the story. thousands of people had to find a different way to get to work today in philly. we'll tell you why after the break.

up once again so maybe the winds are becoming more breezy for tomorrow. what we're watching is this cold front back to our north and west. behind this, a much cooler temperature and right now, it's fairly quiet. you're not seeing any shower activity along the front but as it pushes down into the southeast, it will gather up enough moisture to produce a few small scattered showers and so i think by friday, we'll clear about a 20% chance of showers as that front works through the area. behind that, cooler temperatures will be working their way in for the weekend. we kind of go to bed like we did a couple of weeks ago on friday night, mild temperatures. you get up on saturday morning and we've got that pleasant, crisp, cool air in place. now, ahead to the front right now, you can see warm temperatures up to chicago which is currently sitting at 70 degrees. you jump onto the back side of the front, places like rapid city currently at 51 degrees. fargo is at 47 so watch that you don't play out on future cast.

mea meander. we have the front working into the southeast so we will continue to see breezy continues, some scattered clouds but warm temperatures into the mid 80s over the next couple of days but that's the front working into the southeast. you start to see a little more activity along the front but still, we're talking about 20% chance of some showers as that front comes through, midday to late friday and then pushes down across the state and down to our the warm side. daytime high of 86 degrees. then for tonight, clear skies, mild night by the way, 6:45 for the sunset. that's going to be changing. remember this coming weekend, that's when we turn those clocks back. 86 degrees again for tomorrow. we stay on the warm side, at least for the next few days. winds are out of the northeast at 15 knots. moderate chop on the bay. high tide at 4:37 this afternoon.
