7:01 am
rules for the game and will rihanna, coldplay or katy perry rules for the game and will rihanna, coldplay or katy perry pay what it takes to win? and we do say good morning, america. did you watch the little league world series last night? oh, it was so much fun. it was a tough game, though, for mo'ne davis. she did strike out six but faced a very tough nevada team, so they went down in defeat, but today, those kids from philly are going to face off against that other team from the south side of chicago that is really capturing -- two heartthrob stories but nevada was very good last night. >> very good team. a lot more on that. but the breaking news, there's the hospital in atlanta where the two americans infected with ebola have been
7:02 am
treated for nearly three weeks. dr. kent brantly is going home this morning. we're going to learn more about nancy writebol's discharge. abc's steve osunsami is in atlanta with the latest. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, george. nancy writebol and her family have asked for privacy and will not attend a news conference scheduled later today. dr. kent brantly will attend that news conference, take no questions, and then he and his family, we're told, plan to disappear. this morning, dr. kent brantly, the missionary doctor sick with ebola finally going home to the arms of his loved ones. dr. brantly and nancy writebol were serving god and saving lives in the ebola war at this field hospital in liberia when they got sick. both were flown to this atlanta hospital. brantley was strong enough to be walked into the building nearly three weeks ago. both are being released. the disease has claimed the lives of more than 1300 people in west africa. the deadliest outbreak in history. but with the right care, about 40% of ebola patients survive. >> the key here is excellent nursing, frequent vital signs, fixing problems. >> reporter: it took an elaborate rescue mission to fly the two missionaries stateside.
7:03 am
experts say brantley still has plenty of healing ahead of him. the most common issue joint and muscle pain which can last for years. >> it's pretty common for people after a bad infection to be very fatigued, maybe to have muscle and joint aches and that certainly can happen after ebola virus. >> reporter: doctors say that after three weeks, ebola patients who beat the disease can no longer spread it easily. the virus no longer appears in the blood or saliva, but there is evidence it can be transmitted through sexual intercourse for up to three months. just this past saturday, brantly was still in the isolation unit separated from his family by a clear wall and an intercom telling abc news in a statement "as my treatment continues in the isolation unit, i'm recovering in every way. i hold on to the hope of a sweet reunion with my wife, children and family in the near future." throughout their ordeal both of these missionaries have tried to put the focus on the crisis that's taking place in west africa, which so far has not spread west. george.
7:04 am
>> boy, they've handled this with such dignity. >> they have and they have put the focus exactly where steve said but i'm so happy they're heading home and doing well. now to new details about that shocking execution of american james foley by isis terrorists. his abductors demanding that huge ransom, more than $100 million. and u.s. special forces recently launching a secret mission to try to rescue him. abc's chief investigative correspondent brian ross has been following this for us. good morning, brian. >> well, good morning, robin. this morning the white house will face new questions about what went wrong with that mission to rescue them over the july 4th weekend. officials tell abc news several dozen special operation forces carried out the bold attempt only to find no hostages when they arrived. for the families of james foley and the other u.s. hostages, it was more heartbreaking news of what could have been. this morning, authorities could be closing in on the identity of the hooded executioner using a database of known jihadists to look for a match with his eyes, his hands and most telling his
7:05 am
voice with what british authorities call a distinctive london accent. >> you have plotted against us and gone far out of your way to find reasons to interfere in our affairs. >> reporter: the director. of the fbi said he is determined to find foley's killers. >> these savages have turned it into a homicide investigation. >> reporter: and there are new details today about foley's harsh treatment while in captivity provided to abc news by one of his former fellow hostages, french journalist nicolas henin. >> he was kind of a scapegoat. every time there would be a round of kicks and punches, he would get a bit more than the others typically. >> reporter: of the several u.s. hostages, foley was picked as the first to be executed. his kidnappers sent word to his family and bosses at "globalpost" last week that they intended to kill him. >> we responded to it and pleaded with them not to take that action. clearly they didn't listen to us.
7:06 am
>> reporter: as the outrage over the scene spreads across the world, the vatican said pope francis intends to call foley's parents today to offer his condolences for their brave son. >> he was strong, courageous, loving to the end. i mean, we just highly recognize our little boy. i mean, he just -- he was just a hero, you know. >> and you know from the videos that his last words were, "i wish i had more time to see my family." >> reporter: there was no further word today and growing concern about the fate of the other american hostage shown on the video, steven sotloff who the isis group also threatened to kill if the u.s. bombing in iraq continues as it is. >> what more about this huge ransom they were demanding? >> it was 100 million euros which is about $130 million and the boss of foley at "globalpost" said they never took it seriously. >> they didn't, all right.
7:07 am
thank you, brian. let's get more from our chief global affairs correspondent, martha raddatz in washington. martha, we saw the president saying yesterday the united states would do whatever it takes to defeat isis. secretary of state john kerry says isil must be destroyed, will be crushed. the question, how? >> reporter: well, the u.s. will certainly not let up on those air strikes in iraq because of the threat from isis, in fact, options have been presented to intensify the air strikes in iraq to help, as the president has said, contain isis. there have already been close to 100 air strikes in iraq. the administration will also seek out partners in the fight, but there is another aspect to this, and that is intelligence. this changes the whole dynamic. turning on an even more robust intelligence gathering, moving drones, surveillance aircraft into the region in greater numberss, but what we really lack is people on the ground to gather intelligence and a broader strategy, say critics, to get to the root of the problem, george. >> you talk about a broader strategy. what about expanding the battlefield?
7:08 am
is it possible the united states will start bombing sites in syria to try to draw in iran and syria against isis? >> reporter: well, the president has always made clear that if it is determined that someone or some group poses an imminent threat to the u.s., the u.s. will act. that has been the case in pakistan, yemen and would not be ruled out in syria especially given jim foley's murder. >> okay, martha raddatz, thanks very much. all right there, george. now to the latest from ferguson. tensions easing somewhat overnight. police calling it a very good night and the reason they say that is that arrests were down significantly. only six people arrested. this after attorney general eric holder met with the family of michael brown. abc's alex perez is in ferguson and has the latest. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, robin. authorities say this is the first time since those violent protests began that they've had a night this calm. all this as the grand jury begins reviewing evidence. overnight, thunderstorms seemingly dampening the crowds
7:09 am
in ferguson. >> there were no molotov cocktails tonight, no fires, no shootings. >> reporter: but tensions still running high. police evacuating supporters of officer darren wilson following tense exchanges with other protesters supporting the unarmed teen he killed, michael brown. this as newly released images show a heated conflict tuesday night. >> my hands are up, bro. >> reporter: a police officer pointing a gun at a demonstrator and threatening to shoot him. >> hands up or i'll [ expletive ] kill you. >> reporter: that officer suspended indefinitely. attorney general eric holder visiting ferguson yesterday trying to ease the unrest. >> people know that a federal thorough investigation is being done. >> reporter: holder also meeting with brown's family as a grand jury met for the first time hearing evidence that could lead to charges against officer wilson. >> they will have absolutely everything that there is, every piece of paper, every photograph. >> reporter: this new cell phone video could be key to wilson's defense, a witness heard in the
7:10 am
background saying brown was shot while walking towards police. >> the next thing i know he's coming back toward the police. >> reporter: abc news also learning from a source close to officer wilson that wilson suffered a serious facial injury during the confrontation, and prosecutors say the grand jury will get to hear officer wilson's account of what exactly happened. it could be eight weeks before a decision on charges is known. robin. >> at the least, all right, alex, thank you. let's go to amy now for the other top storying developing. >> good morning, everyone. we begin with a stunning navy investigation into cheating by sailors. at least 34 sailors are being thrown out of the service for cheating on exams to become instructors at a nuclear power training site. that cheating ring operated for at least seven years, none of the sailors were involved in the handling of nuclear weapons. and a serious escalation in the middle east overnight. hamas confirming an intense israeli air strike has killed three of its top military leaders. israeli leaders saying their
7:11 am
operation will not stop until hamas stops firing rockets into israel. and here in new york, palestinian supporters unfurled this huge banner from the manhattan bridge. this is the second recent security breach on a bridge. you will remember the concern after some artists scaled the brooklyn bridge planting two white flags. well, bank of america has agreed to pay a record penalty nearly $17 billion. the bank will also admit to misleading investors. the fine settles accusations of selling faulty mortgage bonds before the financial crisis. well, hostess is closing the original twinkie factory in illinois where twinkies have been baked for 84 years. about 400 workers will be affected. twinkies will be made at three other plants. and some good news about hall of fame quarterback jim kelly. he is cancer-free. the buffalo bills legend underwent radiation and chemotherapy in his fight against sinus cancer. his doctor says it is possible no further treatment will be
7:12 am
needed. congratulations to him, indeed. and an airline mechanic getting praise with this photo. there he is helping navy vet taylor morris who lost both of his arms and legs in afghanistan. morris twisted his leg out of place at the las vegas airport but his special wrench was in his checked bag, and that's when keith dufner came to his rescue. and caught on video off the florida gulf coast a four-foot shark, okay, that's scary enough. but wait until you see a giant grouper swallowing the shark in just one bite. groupers can grow to eight feet long and nearly 700 pounds. wow. all right. finally a pop culture icon is going big time literally. this giant rubber duckie will lead more than a dozen battleships and sailboats into the port of los angeles this afternoon to kick off the tall ships festival. this duckie may look squeezable like the one you have or perhaps still have in your bathtub.
7:13 am
it's actually made of steel, and it weighs about 11 tons, but it sure is cute. >> yeah. >> cute steel. 11 tons. >> looks squeezable. >> huge. >> thanks, amy. we're going to turn now to the desperate search for two missing mothers in indiana. they disappeared five weeks and less than 20 miles apart in similar circumstances, and now police are trying to figure out if the incidents are related. abc's linzie janis has the story. >> reporter: this morning, police say they are actively investigating any possible connection between the disappearances of these two young indiana mothers. 30-year-old joelle lockwood and 27-year-old kristy kelley disappearing within weeks of each other. >> it doesn't happen frequently that we have two women of the same age group that go missing around the same time. >> reporter: kelley was last seen leaving a boonville veterans club around 1:30 friday morning. this surveillance footage shows what police believe is kelley's car heading in the direction of her home.
7:14 am
>> there's been no activity on her bank accounts, no evidence pointing towards any type of a struggle. >> reporter: less than 20 miles away in evansville, joelle lockwood was last seen by friends leaving a house on july 9th. she too gone without a trace. >> it's been difficult to keep one foot in front of the other, but we are doing that, and we will find our daughter. >> reporter: so far, police say they have nothing linking the two women, but investigators on both cases are comparing notes daily. >> just knowing that our daughter is out there and we can't get to her, it's very, very, very rough. >> reporter: both families pleading for the public's help reassuring their grandchildren they won't stop searching. >> we have told the children that their mother is missing, we are looking for their mother and that we will continue to look for their mother. >> anybody that's a parent, i hope no one ever has to go through this nightmare.
7:15 am
>> and if someone does have her, i just beg you, beg you, please bring our daughter home. >> reporter: for "good morning america," linzie janis, abc news, new york. >> let's hope this attention helps. >> we do hope that helps. lara, little league world series so exciting this year. >> yeah, the action continues, guys. the little league world series is on. mo'ne davis will be back in action today after a rough night. her team will be going head to head with another favorite from the south side of chicago, and abc's gio benitez is at the stadium in south williamsport, pennsylvania, with all the news. good morning to you, gio. >> reporter: oh, good morning, lara. you're right. she did have a rough game. but tonight we're going to be talking about the two teams that have just captivated this nation showing everyone that the little leagues, they're pretty major. tonight, two of the most talked about teams in the little league world series coming face to face and only one will continue on.
7:16 am
south side chicago's jackie robinson west team defying the odds, the first little league team from chicago to make it to the world series in 31 years, becoming a social media craze and beacons of hope for some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the country. >> it's over. a complete game. >> reporter: on the other bench philadelphia's taney dragons and their star, mo'ne davis, now gracing the cover of this week's "sports illustrated." she made history with a pitch perfect game friday. the first shutout by a girl in series history. overnight davis took to the mound again with more than 34,000 fans in the stands. far more than ten major league games played on the same day. even the newly elected mlb commissioner attended the game. >> 1-2. laced into right center. >> reporter: but in the end it was a disappointing loss against las vegas. davis taken off the pitcher's
7:17 am
mound early in the game and moved to first base. >> she, you know, didn't have her "a" game today but she's certainly entitled to it. >> reporter: and now strict little league rules say she can't pitch for two full days, which means at tonight's game, we'll only see her at bat or covering the bases. her legions of fans behind her all the way. who are you here to see? >> all: mo'ne! >> so again she can't pitch tonight. those are the rules, but if the taney dragons win tonight's game, they will play saturday night, and you can bet mo'ne davis will be back on that pitcher's mound and, guys, we're going to be watching. >> yeah. >> no pressure. >> so much pressure on such a young girl. >> she's really handling it well. >> i want both teams to win tonight. >> i know. >> can you arrange that? >> a tie, does that happen? >> look at those big crowds they're playing to in williamsport. >> it's fantastic. >> it is. >> ginger, you got hail all over the country. >> yes, more than 150 severe
