geared towards finding kids.s. >> t tre is a federal mandate that if a child goes missing a law enforcement agency will immediately take aeport from family, there is not a federal requirement related to missing adults. >> which may be why no missing persons report ever was filed for fletcher. this is astonishing, you've been through all of this, basically you still until now have no answers. >> exactly. >> out of other options, andrew meacham scoured the namus reports on unidentified remains. >> when you can't find him alive you have to start wondering if he's somewhere dead. >> h hit on namus case numberr 991145. an unidentified man found dead of heart attack on this bench five days after fletcher was last seen. and just five miles away.
>> the image that was accompanying this entry on thehe namus database doesn't look an lot like him. >> he compared that image, an artist rendering ofhat the unidentified man looked like when alive to fletcher's state identification photo. he still wasn't sure. >> i think he was frustrated because he couldn't quite tell if that w w hisriend or not. >> bill heads up investigations for the medical examiner's office were the unidentified remains were housed. >> this here is all of our unidentified case files. >> the office is a high success rate in finding the missing. but in fletcher's case, there was little to work with. no fingerprints, no obvious way to get d.n.a. >> his friends and immediate family had all died and so obtaining d.n.a. from family
members to compare to our unidentified person was not possible. >> but then meacham remembered a letter fletcher had written to him almost two decades ago. e days when peoplpl still licked envelopes. >> there is postmark. >> would it be possible to extract d.n.a. from saliva under the envelopops seal. >> i've never heard of making an identification using an envelope. >> i was expecting they would say it's too corroded, too old. >> but after weeks of work the d.n.a. team astonished everyone. >> t(ey took and opened the flap cutt out sectioioof the seal and that's where they were able to extract d.n.a. from that. >> wow. all the d.n.a. they are using came out of this little one inch strip. >> that's it. >>rom 20 years a a. yes. amazing. >> that is truly amazing.
but was it a match? whatever answer you get it's not going to be good. >> that's right. but at least it's an answer. >> we talked to andrew meacham a day before he would find out. what does your heart t tl you? think it's h h. >> youou don't t tnk it's him. >> no. straight on down, last door. >> the next day -- at's the envelope. >> in pell almost's office the long awaited news. >> based on that full profile from the envelope yourp search for fletcher is over. >> first came shock. then grief.
>> you know, i'm just blown away. weeks later on a warm morning in olivia, north carolina, he the remains. >> t t lord shall preserve thy forward. even forever more. >> 16 years after stuart etcher currin died alone and unnamed on a roadside bench, his childhood pal was able and last to say gooye. you have turned out to be an amazing friend. >> i think i turned out just to be a friend. this is what friends do. you don't let each other just

some pushback. >> our mom is a great cook. but even as kids she wouldn' cook squirrel. if you shoot it, you have to eat it. you have t tcook it, toooo that seems too be a big part of the messaging here. that this is an example of good animal stewardship of eating what you huntven if it's a rodent. we've now arrived at the part of the story where we are legally obligated to ask the question on the minds of those still watching the program. how does squirrel taste? >> wononrful. >> is it seasoned. >> jt plain boiled. >> that's good. >> my first taste of squirrel but not my last. i had agreed to serve as one of the contest judges. decision i was beginning to regret. 80% of the meat inside the dish should be squirrel. >> i'm allergic to squirrel is
>> once the judging was underway i had to admit most of the dishes tasted really good. and showed amazingng creativity. >> wow. look at the place mat like i'm in a moroccan restaurant. >> of course, 20 or so diss later, i was the one starting to feel squirrely. as these iron chefs tested minot so iron stomach, there was one silver lining. >> this year we were pretty light on squirrel desserts. in the past we've had squirrel ice cream, squirrel brain with cream cheese andnd puff pay tree.e. >> i'm happy this was a light year for that. the dessert category can be fairly rough. >> the day's winning dish turnedd t to be squirrel empanadas.

>> osgood: david remnick, editor of "the new yorker." this morning he's talking with erin moriarty of "48 hrs." > i'veever been the editor of anything. i did the whole newspaper on my kitchen table it came out twice a year. i don't think k at really was adequate preparation. >> sings his high school days in new jersey, david remnick has come a long way. for 167 years he's been at the helm of the "new yorker" which marked it's 90th anniversary this yea >> sandy frazier's piece is ready with art.. >> remnick is only the fifth
editor of the weekly magazine and perhaps one of its most influential. it's side r said that what he's thinking right now you'll bebe talking about next week. >> that looks fantastic. >> he personally chooses the magazine's arttic and topical covers. occasionally so controversial they spark an outcry. take remnick's satirical cover in july 200 then presidential candidate barack obama seen weweing a turban and robes and fist bumping his wife. >> can i tell you how many people he said to me, davidf they wouldn't have known this was on the cover of "the new yorker" seen this cartoon been asked, which magazine has this on their cover almost everyone would have said neonazi magazine. >> oh, come e . >> i found such a question appalling just dumb. >> you couldn't consider that
maybe you went a little too far? >> well, i think satire is often about going too far enough. if you're not going too far awfully safe. >> did you lose any subscribers? considerable number? >> here is what happened. people call, cancel my subscription, my sjlent answer is, you cancel your own damn superscription. >> he seems less fire brand more good humored brainiac. >> a certain kind of street wise. i can't wait to -- >> the magazine seems t t reflect his broad interests. news-breaking articles mixed with fiction. and of course, its legendary cartoons like this one about airport scanner that reveals perhaps too much. he's expanded the reach with a
event. >> i'm david remnick. >> "the new yorker" festival whwhh attracts news makers and celebrities like larry david. >> my mother wanted me to be a mailman. that was her dreaea with the festival selling out and the magazine reaching younger readers on their electronic devicesl remnick became the editor who could turn redd ink to black in age when many magazines are struggling. >> i knew at some level that the impact that i could make was infifitely moref i could be a good editor of "the new yorker" than as a writer. i don't think i'm a terrible writer or journalist, i'm not bad. >> not#badndeed. remnick wonhe pulitzer prize in 1994 for his book "lennon's tomb." by any measure, he's led a
he wanted to be a newsmsm and started at the "washington post." he did features, even covered sports. >> i covered whatever i was told to including hockey which i had to k kp somebododon the phone to explain the game to me. i didn't know what the hell was going on. >> then his life was changed by two events. >> all of a sudden thereas a jonotice that went up to go to moscow and nobody really wanted to go because it's cold. >> he became the post's correspondent in moscow and he married esther fein a reporter at the "new york times." >> we literally got married in october of 1987 and to moscow. it was the beginning of our marriage. >> in 1992, aft returning to the.s., remnick was hired as a staff writer at "the new yorker" by the editor at that time, tina brown. why look atecoming the editor of the magazine.
>> yes, darling, why? >> well, it was a very strange thing. tina brown suddenly decided to leave e he new yorker" and start another magazine called "talk." >> remnick a thoughtful writer was not the obvioushoice that filled the heels of the more flamboyant tina brown. >> i used to tease him. i was sort of like joe torre coming after billy marn. >> a new yorker staff writer who has worked for four editors there saysys that remnick brought stability to the magazine when brown left. >> you know, that after a brilliant but very high pressure kind o leader, you want somebody who is equally authoritative but in a much more generous and easy going way. >> david's great gift is for identitiing talent and using it and creating a circumstance which talented people feel
happy. early. >> the couple says their household is also run with that same spirit of collaboration. >> we have a complicated family. we have two grown, healthy sons. we have 15-year-old daughter w w as autism. and that, as any parent with special needs kid knows is an enormous challenge. it's not a mildd case.e. so, we have to depend on each other in innumerable ways that i can't even begin to calculate. >> i would assume that most of the burden of that, the cities, the dealing with it, has been on your shoulders because his job onlyecome more and more complicated over the years. >> the pragmatics of it is in my hands but stress is equally shared. >> the remnick, the worries at home have put the stress of work
>> to do what i do is an immense gift. at the same time, you know what real suffering can be. the work is frururating, it's complicated, it's difficult, but it's not shoveling coal, it's not suffering. >> does he read everything that goes in, every single week? >> as far ass i know, every senn then goes in the magazine he passes his eyes over one point or another in the course of assembling it. >> recommend in this case not afraid to make tough calls. >> i i remember in the week after 9/11, for instance, and david said, you know, i'm going to take all the cartoons out of the magazine which is somethinge had never done in our history. >> is that his decision? >> that was totally his decision. i thought that it was a mistake, because i thought our readers are looking to us for continuity. that turned out to be exactly the right thing to do and put
>> as editor remnick brings a cool perspective to everything he does. but he is acutely aware of the responsibility he carries. having achieved all that he has, there's one title david remnick does not want. i know that you have told people you don't want to be the last editor of the magazine. >> i don't. why would i?
>> osgood: are we spending too much time looking at these? the question for contributor paula poundstone. >> almost everyone in our country y addicted to electronics and riddled with denial. when i talk to people about it they get defensive they say it's not addiction just something they enjoy. really? i love tolay ping-pong, i love to practice the drums, i love to tap dance, but i have never even once tried to figure out how to do any one of those things while driving in such a ways tha the cops couldn't see. because i am not addicted to those activities i just enjoy them. there's a huge difference. screen devices wreak havoc with the brain's frontal lobe, diagnosis of adhd have taken a steep rise. yet evenhen presented with that information parents often won't hear of p ptecting their kids from the harmful effects of screen devices. kids love 'em, they say. yes, they do. some kids would love heroin if
i'm told after initial vomiting stste it can be a hoot. we didn't know this when we first brought these shiny new toys. now we do know. still adults aren't doing anything about it y.? because we're addicted. addiction hampers judgment, you see it. everywhere you look people are staring at their flat things. we're terrified of being bored, no one drifts or wonders. if robert frostad lived today he would have written, whose woods are these i think i'll google it. screens are tearing away our real connections, ads for family caca shows every family member on a different device. restaurants are putting tablets on their tables. these restaurants claim they're providing tablets just to make ordering easier. gee, if saying, may i please have chicken fingers is too difficult, wouldn't we want to work on that. the tech industry has profited from the every child must have a laptop in the classroom push,
research shows that the brain retains information better read from paper than from a screen. and students who take notes by hand are more successful on sts than thosese who t te those on a computer yet art, music, sports, play, healthy meals and green space, things we know help the developing brain are on the chopsing block of school districts' budgetsts annuauay. even knowing this at the suggestion that we get screen devices out of our classrooms and away from our children children, people gasp, but they will need them for the world of the future. our chchdren will need fully functioning brains for the world of the future. let's put that first. >> you can't stop us all. >> osgood: ahead.
profile. if you're doing everything right but find it harder and harder to get by, you're not alone. while our people work longer hours for lower wages, almost all new income goes to the top 1%. my plan -- make wall street babas and the ultrarich pay their fair share of taxes, provide living wages for working people, ensure equal pay for women. i'm bernie sanders.
>> osgood: carey mulligan played daisy buchanan opposite leonardo dicaprio in "the g gat gatsby" which is just the way she likes it. ben tracy has our sunday profile. >> i i all of this made entirely from your own imagination? >> whether she is dancing with the great gatsby. >> you he no idea how boring everything was before i met you. >> beingeduced by a con man. >> you can't stop us all. >> or fighting for equal rights. the one thing carey m mligan doesesot want to you see on screen is carey mulligan. >> we live in a time where so
many people seem so desperate to be famous. d you actively fight against it. >> growing up i wanted to
be an actress, i wanted to pretend to believe that i was other p pple. i don't want people to watch me on screen and think about who i'm married to or where i live or what restaurant they see me coming out of want to struck people. i thinknk they shouldn't know a lot about you nor do they need to. >> the hollywood reporter just declared mulligan one of the eight great actresses working today. despite that she is still one of the least recognizable. you change your look quite a bit is that part of it? >> yeah. if i see look identical from film to film i find that harder to buy. >> she's transformed herself once again in her latest film, "suffragette." she plays a woman who loses
custody of her sonon in violent right for equal rights. >> said they're ming a film about suffragette. cool. mary poppins and drinking tea. then i read the script, it just completelylyhanged everyrying. i wawajust so shocked. >> we burn things. ly language many listen to. you betrayed us, nothing else left. >> so shocking that we had never told the story. but sort of shocking to remember that thihi is still the case withh so many women now. 62 million girls in the world can't to go school. one in three women experience sexual violence. so it never felt like we were making historical drama. it felt like we were sort of saluting these women for the sacrifices that they made but also trying to look at where we
and bring it back a aund to the modern day. >> this also happens at a time where there is this discussion about the wage disparity in hollywood between actors and acqresses. >> the's a wage gap in most jobs, in most positions i think, it particularly right in hollywood. it has been for a long time. >> it is my intention to astonish you all. >> it's no coincidence that her desire to play strong female characters. >> i'm paralyzed with happiness. >> has led to many f fm projejes adapted from classic works of literature. >> they just the strongest roles. there'sseason that great literature is adapted time and time again it has these brilliant characters. >>ulligan knows her film choices may have given her a certain reputation.
are you a serious person? >> no. no, i'm not. i think i'm drawn to serious material because i find it difficult and that's exciting and challenging. but i'm not a serious person in my own life. and i don't do serious things. in my own -- i don't go home and read nietzsche and i'm pretty relaxed. the material that i'm drawn to is often quite serious. >> the acting bug bit her early. she was born in london from about the age of six, mulligaga was in every school play that would have her. and her first love is still the stage. >> the first time i was here was en i was 14 years old it. >> was during trip to new york as a teenager that she realized exactly what she was going to be when she grew up. >> i saw kevin bay son doing one-man show. i can't remember what it was
about. >> just a few years later she would find herself back on broadway. only this time starring as nina in checkov's "the seagull." >> there's a line where my charactera young actress she wants to be on stage, everyone needs the stage she looks out across this lake says, i'm dreaming. i remembebe the firstst night when i came on stage i shade line, it felt just a complete dream come true. >> mulligan's dream got even bigger in 2009 when hollywood sat up and took notice. she starred in the british coming of age film "an education" which earned her an oscar nomination and comparison to audreyy hepbubu. >> what if i got married. >> married? >> she played the 16-year-old girl dutifully living up too her parents' expectations until love
in mulligan's own life it was acting that almost came between her and her family. >> when you tolol your parents, i want to be an actress. what was the response? >> they wanted me to go to university and then pursue actingnce i had a digree. i went off did audititns and lied about where i was going. it was the most deceitful i've ever been. probably the biggest fight i've ever had with my parents when they found out. >> you paint a picture of being a very good child. did you ever have real rebellious phase? >> when i was 16, i asked to have a party and i've never had a party before. i had a super heroes party at my house and it was complete disaster. the police came twice. there were cigarette burns in the carpet.& it was carnage. my parenen were so disappointed in me. >> i have to ask, what super hero were you? >> i was a teenage mutant ninja turtle.
it was my costume of c cice. >> herosos o o a half shell. turtle power. >> so, rebellion was not her stng suit but determination was. by 2011, mullilin was o o a fast track to s srdom. one of her early hollywood projects was the film "drive" played the love interest of actor ryan gosling. during filming she lived at this hotel. >> i could see the hollywood sign from my window. i rememberaking photo, i can see the hollywood sign. i'm really here. >> now, at a a 30, carey role. she and her husband, marcus mumford the lead singer of the band, recently became firsrs time parents. how is being a mom changed you? >> i think i'm more relaxed. >> that's great. because i don't think relaxed is a word first time mothers
>> even with talk of another oscar nomination for her role in "suffragette" mulligan says she can now put it all in perspective. >> i love doing my job and i really like talking about it and all the great things are wonderful. at the end of the day i takeff that hat, it's another life. >> osgood: next -- anchors
>> osgood: the naval history of world war ii is very real and very personal for two boys our steve hartman has visited. it all began here in raleigh, north carolina. with a flurry of plastic bomb shells. >> you sunk my battleship. >> a few yearsgo 11-year-oldld twins, carter and jack hanson got really into the game battleship.
that got them interested in naval warfare in general. which eventually led to a family vacation too see the york towna retired aircraft carrier in charleston, south carolina. >> my mom was just blown. like blew. >> the kids say the yorktownn changed their lives. >> i just realized how amazing history can be. >> and it was abouto get even better. on that same trip the boys learnedbout a a world war ii vet named robert harding, who actually served on the yorktown. they got his e-mail address. started corresponding daily and becameeally enamored. the boys now keep his picture by their beds. if you ever go to the yorktown with them as we did they will chew your ear off about mr. harding and what he did on board as a plane handler. >> when the plane is ready to launch, he could go unstrap this and plane would go flying that direction. >> the folks who run the yorktown say lot o o kids love
but no kid has ever fallen for a sailor who served here like these two boys have fallen for mr. harding. which is why, for this trip, the yorktown made special arrangements for a surprise visitor. >> you're march harding? >> that's right. hugging an old salt never felt so sweet. >> you are a good boy. >> it was hard to tell who enjoyed itit more. or w w needed it more. >> i guess i need somebody to talk to about it. surprising. >> since we first told this story in april, mr. harding and the boys have stayed in touch and last month got together again at the york town. this time,or entire weekend the boys get to spend the night
and even better they got to attend a reunion full of sailors who served onn the yorktown. sailors who gave jack and carter certificates naming them honorary members of the yorktown crew. > this is going in my room. >> i don't know what to say. this was just awesome. i mean, official member of yorktown. it's been my dream. >> whoever said hisisry is irrelevant o oiously never fell in love with it. >> we don't know about how we've changed his life, but we kno that he obviously changed ours. >> osgood: still to come. travels with the piano guys.
chord with devoted audiences. e cowan shows us how they do it. >> there's no easy way to describe what you're about to see and hear. there's no point in trying to label it, either, no musical genre really quite fits. >> i likik to say that it's familiar and unfamiliar at the same time. >> there's no rule book. there's no specific musicic theory that we stick to. >> we jyst know when it feels right, youou know? guys.
if you haven't heard of them you haven't been on youtube lately. their music videos a a more like travelogues they have been viewed well over half a billion times. that's billion with a "b." and yet as internet sensations themselves a little less than hip. >> we're not rock stars. we're the farthest thing from it. nobody is putting pictutus of jon schmidt and steven sharp nelson on their wall. >> in their lockers? >> right. and enshrining us. because we're old. we're dads. we're not good looking. i mean, come on, let's be honest. >> besides steven sharp nelson on#the cello. and john schmidt on piano. the piano guys consist two of
der beek and cinematographer paul a aerson. the man behind those extraordinary youtube videos. >> you have to do something different that people haven't seen in order for them to want to share it. and for them being different is all about piano placement. like hoisting one on top of a thousand foot cliff in utah. >> we basically wrapped it in it. >> we had no idea what we were doing. >> you can't go to home depot and ask for h hicopter to piano tether cables. >> we made it. >> managed a mini concert at iguaz ozo falls in brazil. and moved a piano, by hand, along the great wall of china. >> basically they built some kind of contraption where they could rest sticks on their shoulders they were all arounun
it, they went up probablyy about 200 stairs. >> carrying a piano. >> crazy. >> those kind of stunts have earned them a hefty internet followowg. they have nenely 4.3 million youtube subscribers and counting. how many new subscribers every day? >> about 5,000. >> every day. >> could fluctuate. >> saying it, i don't want to sound than which land like whole can certificate hall. >> yes, they do play live, too, like when we caught up with them at the smith center for the performing arts recently in las ves. they have release several albums. most recently a live album out this month. their fans are as hard to categogoze as their music, they're young, they're old, male and female, rockers and not so much.
they have made our career. soso it's fun to play to them and even to a small extent pay them back for all of the support that theyave given us. >> we remind each other, don't let this go to the heads. >> i don't ever want toet used to the feeling, the miracle that brought us t tether. >> we're so thankful for this opportunity -- >> not a day passes that they don't give thanks for it all. faith and family matter most. they're all devout mormons.. they record not in l.a., new york or nashville. but in the basement of a modest home in salt lake city. >> latter day saints or church of jesus christ of latter day saints you feel like lot of people misunderstand you. that causes a lot of frustration. we're mormons, we don't have horns or multiple wives.. we're not crazy.
we just -- >> that's debatable. >> some of us aren't crazy. >> they have a sense off humum about it. they joke they don't collect wives, but children. they have 16 between the four of them. >> i smile aot in my vidids and people ask me why i do. it's because my wife and kids i'm thinking about and how much i love them, how much they do for me. so, no matter where i go and how amazininthe world is out there it's never as amazing as inside the home. >> that's when sony music came calling with a big recording contract, these four dads, were more worried than excited. >> we were just like, no, thank you we said no six or seven times. >> they wanted to make it but not at the expense of their personal lives. sony compromised. agreeing to distribute their music worldwide and let them
book their tours around their faith and family's schedules. >> there is understanding that family will always come first. we're dads first and foremost, that's been important for us, it's kept us alive. kept us doin what we're doing. >> makes your music better. just feel like everything is in balance. >> we were amazed as what they accomplish in that small basement studio. >> we just try to get all the different kind of sounds, different kinds of textures and piece it all together. >> how about one of these? >> steven has some 20 cellos. and he can make each one sound like just about anything. we watch as he laiai down a buzzing sound. then something that sounded like a seagull.
mix in a few brushes. and a little hand rubbing. then top it all offff with john's signature touch on the piano. they are painfully aware the internet is fickle. which is whyhey sayay theyrust not just in their talents, but in something larger. >> how far do you think this can go? >> i think it can go for a long time. for now, the piano guys are on a roll. creating that wonderful sound amidst nature's wonders. >> good idea to keep coming. we'll just rely on that. if they don't then there's

but thth's not the way it works. eventually your brain corrects for it. it actually aids in composition. check my light. is the boulder behind me is popular for kids to climb up on and jump off. i come visit it every so often and lighting is always different. the boulder appears to be different. i've been to this boat many times and sometimes i didn't even take a picture i just lookod at it. this one morning it was perfect. the boat is pointing out to the unknown. you don't know what is out there. you could go through the vail of fog and it could be sunny day. i live and work mostly in long island now. this is where i was born. when i was growing up i thought i would be an illtrate for. i probably started drawing in second grade and i have the proof right here.
this is done with an airbrush. after college i needed to start working so iot a job in a photo studio. everybody takes pictures, but thought i could make art with photography. i learned by doing. this is just fascinating here. as the waves crash over the rock during high tide, the ice slowly builds up. and then i starts to melt a a off. i sell my work at galleries and also sell at art fares. color work is newer work. this is a lot different than gallery situation in that i get to meet the people that buy my work. this is done by panning the camera very fast. they're irises. it's the connectctn withhe person who is buying your work that is worth a million dollars really. they're kind of dream like. it's there, but it's not there.
it breaks. my photographs are in a way, they're like my children. and when someone is willing to purchase one, i feel like, i wonder if it's going to a good home. i don't have people in my photographs. i find it distracqing. i nt the viewer of my images totoeel like they're there. they're there by themselves. but i have a picture of my daughter, kate, it's in the forest. she's a little, tiny figure in the picture. she's on a path that kind of winds back into the distance. really that image was a metaphor for her long journey, , cause she comes from china. she's adopted. when i'm not taking photographs i love watching kate play the violin. i i so like watching her do gymnastics, she's very
sport. this image behind me is called family tree" it has a real connection to me because an image i shothe day my fher passss away. he was i i the hospital l t i needed a break. i got home and i got a phone call that my fathe had passed away. i h he since gone back to visit this tree. in an odd way it feels like i'm visiting with him. this is nothe eastiest way to make a living. i can't even afford to buy my own work. luckily i can just make one. >> i've been fighting my own life. it's not a choice for me.
