THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

WARM AND SUNNY WEDNESDAY

Another beautiful day is on the way for Southwest Florida today. We start with mainly clear skies and continue with mostly sunny skies all day. Afternoon highs will reach into the low to mid 80s for most spots with winds coming in from the southeast at 5 - 10 mph. At the beached, highs will only reach into the upper 70s as the late afternoon sea breeze keeps things cooler there.

Through the next couple of days, you'll start to notice more humidity. That will allow a few more clouds to form and keep the overnight temperatures a bit warmer. Lows will be in the mid 60s and afternoon highs will warm into the mid 80s. There is the chance for a very stray shower on the sea breeze by the end of the week.

Into the weekend, a cold front will be approaching. That front could bring a few showers to the area Saturday night into Sunday. By Monday and Tuesday higher rain chances will be in place. Return to index of stories...

MO: MISSING GIRL MURDER UPDATE-PKG


REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

PROSECUTORS REVEAL WHAT THEY FOUND WHEN THEY ARRIVED AT CRAIG WOODS HOME ON WEST LOMBARD STREET.

THEY FOUND WOOD WITH DUCT TAPE IN HIS HAND. POLICE SAY HE THREW IT IN HIS PICK-UP, THE SAME PICK-UP WITNESSES DESCRIBED AS THE ONE THEY SAW DRIVE AWAY WITH TEN-YEAR-OLD HAILEY OWENS INSIDE ABOUT 5 MILES AWAY.

OFFICERS WENT INSIDE THE HOUSE TO LOOK FOR HER. THEY WENT TO THE BASEMENT AND SMELLED BLEACH AND SAW A WET BASEMENT FLOOR. THEY DISCOVERED A PLASTIC STORAGE BIN WITH HAILEY'S BODY WRAPPED IN TRASH BAGS INSIDE.

As a father of an eight-year-old and eleven-year-old daughters, these are very hard facts to talk about. I'm just glad that he is captured, and we'll be able to bring him to justice.

WITNESSES SAW A MAN THAT LOOKED LIKE WOOD APPROACH HAILEY ABOUT A BLOCK FROM HER HOUSE, AS SHE WALKED WITH A CELL PHONE. PROSECUTORS SAY HE ASKED FOR DIRECTIONS. HAILEY IGNORED HIM, BUT HE KEPT ASKING AND SHE GOT CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE TRUCK FOR HIM TO GRAB HER AND PULL HER IN LIKE A RAG DOLL.

My neighbor is yelling at this man -- and her -- to get away from the truck. He was yelling at her, saying "get away from the car. Don't go over there." Telling him, "don't touch her, don't touch her." and I guess the man grabbed her and pulled her in the truck and sped off really fast, so I got in my car and tried to chase him.

BUT HE GOT AWAY. THE WITNESSES GAVE POLICE THE EXACT LICENSE PLATE NUMBER WHICH WAS TRACED TO WOOD.

Tragically, we were not able to save Hailey. I want to express my appreciation to the citizens who were aware and alerted law enforcement.

THERE IS NO EVIDENCE WOOD KNEW HAILEY OR HER FAMILY. HIS FORMER STUDENTS COULDN'T BELIEVE THE NEWS.

He was the football coach. He was just more quiet and calm. And I was just in complete shock when I saw him on there. And it's just extremely sad to know he would do something like that to a ten-year-old little girl. Return to index of stories...

GMA: SHOE BOMBER-trxONCAM


A NEW WARNING FOR AIR TRAVELERS THIS MORNING.

THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY ISSUING AN ALERT ABOUT A POSSIBLE SHOEBOMB ATTACK.

PIERRE THOMAS IS FOLLOWING THIS STORY FOR US. Return to index of stories...


GMA: SHOE BOMBER-PKG


SCRIPT:

Sources tell ABC news, new credible intelligence obtained from overseas,

suggests that terrorist bomb makers have stepped up efforts to build shoe

bombs, to DESIGN liquid explosives and to hide explosives in cosmetic

containers:

The goal: to smuggle bombs on commercial international flights.

No specific plot has been identified, but the threat is being taken

seriously. Passengers flying to the united states from overseas can expect

to see additional pat downs and extra scrutiny of their shoes and carry-on

items.

"I think aviation symbolizes something to al qaeda. That - the idea that you

can take down a plane, and kill potentially hundreds of people both that

are on the plane and on the ground, is very appealing."

In some ways this is security de ja vu. In December 2001---only three months

after 911-- Richard Reid boarded a u.s. bound plane with 197 passengers

with plastic explosives built into the heel of his shoe. The bomb failed to

detonate when he tried to set it afire, but this SIMULATION shows what it

could have done.

BOOM

The attempts to take down planes continued.

There was the London based liquid explosive plot to blow up u.s. bound

planes over the Atlantic.

And the underwear bomber trying to take down a plane on Christmas day over

Detroit. Return to index of stories...

SOME GOVERNMENT LAWYERS TELL THE WALL STREET JOURNAL COURT RULES ON PRESERVING EVIDENCE REQUIRE THE N-S-A TO STOP DESTROYING OLDER PHONE RECORDS.

FL: ORLANDO PASSPORT SCAN AT AIRPORT-trxVO IN TC


A NATIONWIDE FIRST - AT A FLORIDA AIRPORT.

NBC2 HAS LEARNED - ORLANDO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT HAS BECOME THE FIRST AIRPORT IN THE COUNTRY TO ADOPT THE USE OF A NEW SECURITY SYSTEM.

IT USES BIOMETRIC, SELF-SERVICE KIOSKS FOR OVERSEAS VISA WAIVER ARRIVALS.

IT'S SUPPOSED TO SPEED THINGS UP *AND, MAINTAIN A HIGH LEVEL OF SECURITY.

GREG FOX SHOWS US HOW IT WORKS. Return to index of stories...


FL: ORLANDO PASSPORT SCAN AT AIRPORT-PKG


"You'll pick you language."

U.S. CUSTOMS & BORDER PROTECTION HAS THIS NEW TOOL, CALLED AN AUTOMATED PASSPORT SYSTEM.

ORLANDO INTERNATIONAL IS ONE OF LESS THAN A DOZEN AMERICAN AIRPORTS TO HAVE THEM AND THE FIRST WITH SPECIAL CLEARANCE TO ALLOW THE USE OF THE MACHINES TO SCREEN FOREIGN PASSENGERS.

FOR U.S. CITIZENS, AN ELECTRONIC SCAN OF YOUR PASSPORT TAKES JUST A FEW SECONDS, AND THEN YOU'LL MAKE ANY DECLARATIONS FOR FOREIGN PURCHASES.

IT'S ALL PAPERLESS!

FOR FOREIGN VISITORS, THERE'S ANOTHER STEP.

"We then look at the fingerprints."

THAT FINGERPRINT SCAN ENSURES INTERNATIONAL PASSENGERS ARE NOT ON GOVERNMENT WATCH LISTS AS KNOWN OR POTENTIAL TERRORISTS.

FINALLY A PHOTO IS TAKEN AND A RECEIPT PRINTED.

ONCE YOU HAVE THE RECEIPT FROM THE KIOSK, THAT'S WHEN THE PROCESS REALLY SPEEDS UP. YOU'LL TAKE THAT RECEIPT OVER HERE TO A CUSTOMS OFFICER AND A PROCESS OF QUESTIONING THAT NORMALLY TAKES TWO TO THREE MINUTES, WITH THIS SHOULD TAKE 30 SECONDS.

OTHER AIRPORTS WITH THE SYSTEM HAVE CUT OVERALL WAIT TIMES BY 15 MINUTES PER PASSENGER.

"So at the end of the day, everyone who lands, will be moving through this airport a lot quicker when they are coming from an international operation."

A U.K. TRAVEL WRITER SAYS THE RESULT, WILL BE MORE OVERSEAS VISITORS TO THE REGION.

"To be able to give them a smooth welcome to Orlando here you are and through in half the time in people will remember that and they will be keen to come back."

BUT FOR AGENTS, THE TOP BENEFIT IS MORE THOROUGH SCREENING OF PASSENGERS.

"It makes you safer because we can focus as cvp officers on the interview of the passenger and spend dedicated uninterrupted time doing that." Return to index of stories...

WEATHER-WX WALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

WARM AND SUNNY WEDNESDAY

Another beautiful day is on the way for Southwest Florida today. We start with mainly clear skies and continue with mostly sunny skies all day. Afternoon highs will reach into the low to mid 80s for most spots with winds coming in from the southeast at 5 - 10 mph. At the beached, highs will only reach into the upper 70s as the late afternoon sea breeze keeps things cooler there.

Through the next couple of days, you'll start to notice more humidity. That will allow a few more clouds to form and keep the overnight temperatures a bit warmer. Lows will be in the mid 60s and afternoon highs will warm into the mid 80s. There is the chance for a very stray shower on the sea breeze by the end of the week.

Into the weekend, a cold front will be approaching. That front could bring a few showers to the area Saturday night into Sunday. By Monday and Tuesday higher rain chances will be in place. Return to index of stories...

HEALTH MATTERS-ON CAM


IT'S A DECISION YOU MAY BE STRUGGLING WITH - SHOULD YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER GET THE H-P-V VACCINE?

WHILE IT'S DESIGNED TO PREVENT CERTAIN TYPES OF CANCER, MANY PARENTS ARE STILL ON THE FENCE.

IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS, AMY OSHIER EXPLAINS HOW PEDIATRICIANS ARE GETTING INVOLVED. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


PKG:

THE HPV VACCINE SEEMS TO BE FLAT-LINING. NOW PEDIATRICIANS ARE

TRYING TO GET PARENTS TO TAKE A SECOND LOOK AT A SHOT PROGRAM

AIMED TO PREVENT CERTAIN CANCERS.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICIAN

RUNS:

6:24 It's more about a conversation every time they come in. We talk to you about the plus

and minuses what questions do you have.

,

PARENTAL UNCERTAINTY WAS FOUND TO BE THE SHOT'S BIGGEST OBSTACLE A

REVIEW OF 55 DIFFERENT STUDIES LOOKED AT WHY THE VACCINATION RATE REMAINS

LOW COMPARED TO OTHER CHILDHOOD SHOTS.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICIAN

RUNS:

6:14 There tend to be two distinct camps. People who are 'ok I think this is a good idea, any

shot that can protect against cancer is a good thing'. And then there are parents who still

have their concerns.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

The HPV vaccine protects against the human papillomavirus, which is sexually

transmitted. The series of shots are aimed at cervical cancers along with oral, penile,

rectal cancers and genital warts. It's recommended boys and girls get it before they're

sexually active. The connection to sex is often the sticking point.

ERIN VanGRINSVEN/MOTHER

RUNS:

1:22 I am raising Catholic, conservative boys who will probably not need that.

A MOTHER OF FIVE BOYS, ERIN VAN GRINSVEN IS OPTING OUT.

ERIN VanGRINSVEN/MOTHER

RUNS:

1:47 They have a pretty clean lifestyle and I just don't believe in adding anything unnatural to

that.

THE CHALLENGE FOR PEDIATRICIANS IS TO PRESENT INFORMATION AND

ADDRESS CONCERNS.

DR. DENISE DRAGO/PEDIATRICIAN

RUNS:

7:52: I think in the future when there's more publicity about cervical cancer rates going down or

the things that it can do, it'll get more accepted.

--REPORTER PKG-AS FOLLOWS--

SOLDIERS WATCH AS A U-S AIRCRAFT IS ABOUT TO DROP A 500 POUND BOMB ON WHAT THE AIR CREW THINKS IS A GROUP OF TALIBAN FIGHTERS.

"There it is."

BUT IN A RARE MISTAKE, THE BOMB HITS THE U-S OUTPOST INSTEAD.

"Oooh, me!"

"What the !"

VIDEO HAS JUST COME TO LIGHT OF THIS SEPTEMBER 2012 INCIDENT IN EASTERN AFGHANISTAN. ANOTHER REMINDER OF THE UNCERTAINTY OF COMBAT.

"This was a major mistake from a targeting perspective. The way targeting works is you have to get the coordinates right."

AN INVESTIGATION DETERMINED THE AIRCREW HAD THE WRONG COORDINATES.

"Holy !"

"Unfortunately in wars, this does happen, but with precision-guided munitions, it's a much rarer occurrence than it used to be."

EVERYONE QUICKLY MOVES TO CHECK ON EACH OTHER.

"You guys all right? You guys good?"

"Yeah."

"Yeah, we're good, we're good. Hey, we're straight."

"What the man?"

"No casualties."

WE ARE TOLD THAT NO ONE WAS HURT, AND INVESTIGATORS RULED IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, SO NO ONE WAS PUNISHED.

BUT IT COULD HAVE BEEN A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY.
