7:03 am
lindsey davis at a jersey city target. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, josh. fortunately no fights broke out at this target. but it remains packed. but this store has been open since midnight. all of the excitement seems to be about the flat-screen tvs. and retail analysts say this black friday is at the lowest point price ever. overnight at this texas walmart, pandemonium. >> i'm a lean, mean, black friday machine. >> reporter: at this best buy, dedication. over 700 shoppers in line. what time did you get here? >> about 1:45 wednesday. >> reporter: and after midnight at this toys "r" us, mass hysteria. shoppers clamoring for deals. but has the frenzy gone too far. gunfire reportedly erupted at a north carolina mall early this morning. thankfully no one was injured. >> there was a group of young

7:05 am
>> i'm getting a 42 inch for her room. >> reporter: all across the country, occupy wall street protesters have been hitting the big box stores. not to shop, as you can imagine, but to protest. and they've been picketing, chanting boycott black friday. it's a gimmick. lara? >> linsey, thank you very much. all morning long, we're going to bring you the best deals in america right now. becky worley has scoured every sale there is to have out there. and she's live from best buy in san francisco. becky, what are you finding to be the best deal at this hour? >> good morning, lara. you can see the shoppers are out in force. there's about 500 people who came through the doors this morning. some waiting 31 hours. and it is all about tvs here at best buy. the deals that are still here for shoppers are really about bargain brands. 32 inches. this one is the dynex. it's retailing for $229. and the big story is the big-screen tvs. you're going to find these in stock. brand names. 55 inches.
7:06 am
this is under $1,000 here at best buy. and some of the other stores have them. apple has announced their deal. about 10% off of macbooks, ipads, ipods. and here's a pro tip. if you buy one thing today, it should be itunes gift cards. that's because they are about 20% off. $100 pack for $80 here at best buy or also at sam's club. one thing from amazon that everybody has to have, on sale, it is a remote-controlled shark. oh, yes. $31, from $49. you know you want that, lara. you know you want it. >> i do. i have two children. they have both requested the air swimmer. that's useful information. i want to ask you a question, though. is the frenzy justified? i think there's a feeling people have, i have to get there otherwise the best stuff will be gone. are you feeling that's true? >> it depends on the product. for tvs, we're actually going to see prices go down as we get closer to the holidays.
7:07 am
and then, it's case by case. you have to scour those deals, lara. >> all right. i guess i have to shop. it's a shoppertunity. thank you, becky. and we go outside to josh. he's in front of our studio, in front of toys "r" us. >> i'm here, actually, with the ceo of toys "r" us. jerry storch, across the street from one of the flagship stores. jerry, i want to ask you. a lot of headlines were made when black friday became black thursday evening this year. you decided to open the doors at 9:00 p.m. why did you make that decision? >> our customers loved it. you should have been here at 9:00 p.m. the line started here and went down the block and down the next block. it was a celebratory atmosphere. the customer was just thrilled. >> we reported that some major retailers made a point of we're not going to step on the thanksgiving holiday. we're going to celebrate it one holiday at a time. how do you respond? >> we opened at 10 p.m. last year. our customers wanted to open earlier.
7:08 am
they felt the thanksgiving dinner was over and they wanted to go shopping. it's all about choice. we have a whole bunch of door busters that opened at 5:00 a.m. you can always shop at toys r it's up to the customer when they shop. >> we saw employees take on their own employers creating online petitions. they got hundreds of thousands of signatures. did you hear any nay saying from your own employees? >> not at toys r us. we are the christmas store. all of us have the same mission, to get the right toy for the right child for christmas. we love it. we're jazzed about black friday. it's a thrill to work at toys r us on black friday. >> what are the right toys? >> it depends on the age of your child. one of the most exciting toys for a young girl is the lalaloopsy. we got la la loopscy silly hair.

7:10 am
still working to recover all those remains they found. and even as that happens, we're learning more details about the victims onboard that small plane. more about their families and what they leave behind. shawn perry had just picked up his three children. 9-year-old morgan, 8-year-old logan, 6-year-old luke, for a thanksgiving weekend visit when the twin-engine went down. smashing into the side of a 5,000-foot peak in the superstition mountains near mesa, arizona. the impact so intense, the fireball was captured by a web camera seven miles away. >> i looked up. and i saw this fireball. and it rose up. and then, all of a sudden, poof, boom. >> no one could survive that crash. >> reporter: perry and his children were killed, along with co-pilot, russell hardy, a 31-year-old husband and father. and joseph hardwick, a 22-year-old airplane mechanic. hardwick was engaged to be
7:11 am
married next month. >> all of these families are just obviously heartbroken, traumatized, over the loss of their loved one so suddenly and on thanksgiving. >> reporter: this morning, the ntsb is working to determine what went wrong, on what was to be a short flight, from mesa, to safford, arizona. the plane was apparently flying under visual flight rules. the crash happened close to the crest of the mountain. authorities say their investigation will be hampered by the steep terrain where the plane went down. getting to the site requires repelling down the mountain after a lift from a helicopter. now, shawn perry, the dad of those three children, was apparently divorced from his wife. sheriff's deputies and a chaplain had to tell her about the accident and the loss of her children. and today will be the first real day that the ntsb investigator will get to that scene to try to start unraveling how apparently experienced pilots could have flown into that mountainside. lara? >> thank you, lisa.
7:12 am
just a holiday tragedy. i can't imagine that mom and what she must be going through. dan harris, weekend anchor of "gma," is in with the other big news of the day. >> hey, guys. good morning to both of you. good morning, everybody. we're going to start with breaking news overnight. a murder add one of the largest hospitals in chicago. a man shot and killed his ex girlfriend in a parking lot. the man was arrested at a traffic stop. now, to the three, american college students arrested in egypt on sunday. they could be soon reunited with their very anxious families. abc's lama hasan is in tahrir square. good morning to you. >> reporter: the americans are still being held in a police station not far from where we are here in tahrir square. now while they've been officially cleared, they haven't been released yet.
7:13 am
but we are expecting them to leave the police station at some point this weekend. they were arrested after being accused of throwing molotov cocktails at security forces on during the protest. here in tahrir square, activists called for another million man march today. it is absolutely packed. this comes after almost a week of intense clashes of security forces and protesters. the army moved in to erect a concrete wall to separate the two sides. so far, the truce seems to be holding. but, dan, it is a tenuous one. >> incredible tense situation there. lama, thank you. the author of the harry potter books, j.k. rowling, said british tabloid reporters pursued her so aggressively she had to move out of her home. paparazzi camped out on her doorstep, published pictures of her home security system. and most egregious of all. a reporter slipped a letter into her 5-year-old daughter's backpack.
7:14 am
gabby giffords spent her first thanksgiving since being shot in the head last january, doing something simple but nonetheless extraordinary, given the extent of her injuries. the congresswoman and her husband served holiday meals to troops and veterans at an air force base in giffords' hometown of tucson. incredible to see that. there are many ways to celebrate thanksgiving. and we here at "gma," make no judgments. one of the ways is to dress up like a turkey and go running. that's what 661 people did at the dallas turkey trot yesterday setting a world record for the most people dressed like turkeys in one place. proving yet again, you can set a world record for pretty much anything. >> anything. >> josh and lara, back to you. >> that's putting the literal in turkey trot. incredible. >> how about the guy with the giant suit? very impressed. >> thank you, dan. >> all right. it's time to get it over to ginger zee, the newest arrival
7:15 am
to the "gma" team and compatriot of dan's on the weekend. in for sam champion. good morning, ginger. >> good morning to all of you. hope you had a great thanksgiving. hope you did, as well. minneapolis had a great one. at least a warm one. record-setting 59. that's the warmest since 1939. today, a warm one, too. if you're shopping near chicago, you're going to be ready to go. yummy weather down to nashville. a little foggy for the center and southwest. but looking for the local forecast in just 30 seconds.
7:16 am
>> i'll look ahead to the weekend forecast in a couple of minutes. for now, back to lara and josh. >> thank you, ginger. all right, the search is still on for the missing mom who vanished after battling it out with her ex-fiance on "the people's court." and this morning there are new clues in the case. bazi kanani has the latest. >> reporter: this is the last message michelle parker left for her father. >> hey, dad.
7:17 am
um, it's about 8:40. this is michelle on wednesday morning. >> reporter: the 33-year-old mother of three, called the day before she disappeared. >> i know that you're at work. but call me when you have lunch or you have break or at the end of your day. >> reporter: parker's family hopes someone may recognize her voice, her face, or even her jewelry, in these newly-released photos. if anyone finds the cross-shaped necklace or ring she was wearing, it could bring her family one step closer to finding her. >> i'm thankful that my sister has, you know, not been found in a bad way because every day that doesn't happen, i still have hope that she's still out there somewhere. >> reporter: it's been more than a week since parker went missing. just hours after she appeared on "the people's court," in a dispute with the father of her children. she accused dale smith of being violent. >> and he shouldn't have put his hands on me. and he shouldn't have put his hands on me prior. >> reporter: abc news has learned that parker tried in 2009 to get a restraining order against smith. a judge rejected the request.
7:18 am
police maintain smith is not a suspect. and parker's family doesn't think he had anything to do with her disappearance. >> if, you know, we bring michelle home and she has already crossed over, then his children are going to need a biological parent, don't you think? >> reporter: this morning, as parker's family members continue their search, they say they hope these words won't be her last. >> okay. i love you. talk to you soon. bye. >> reporter: for "good morning america," bazi kanani, new york. >> thank you very much. now, a story that i know you love. >> indeed. thanksgiving, a day for so many things. conveniently for the purposes of this introduction, start with the letter "f." family, friends and football. for one family, it was about posterity. yesterday, for the first time in nfl history, two brothers faced each other in the same game as head coaches. so, what would their parents do?
7:19 am
it finally happened on two nfl sidelines. two brothers, forever sibling rivals, staring square-jawed, across the field at each other. john harbaugh, the head coach of the baltimore ravens. i really, really, really want to beat him. >> reporter: and jim harbaugh, 15 months younger, head coach of the san francisco 49ers. >> this week, my brother's just someone we're trying to beat. >> reporter: just imagine, on a day reserved for family and friends and for millions of turkey-addled americans. football, the quandary faced by jackie and jack harbaugh, choosing a side on thanksgiving. >> i'm going to be nervous. we're going to get as far away from the stadium as we can. >> reporter: jack, a college coach for 43 years, raised two would-bes, close-knit boys for 18 years. >> lots of fighting, absolutely. we drew a tape across the room at one point in time. >> reporter: jim would find success as an nfl quarterback for 14 seasons before taking
7:20 am
over the niners this year. john has been a head coach for four years. theirs is a rivalry that plays out not in between the sidelines, but pacing on them. >> we're always passionate about what we do. and sometimes it can be conveyed as good. and sometimes it can be conveyed as overenthusiastic. but i'm so proud to see them be who they are. >> reporter: in the end, big brother, john, led his ravens to a 16-6 win. with mom and dad watching at a distance, on tv. but that mattered not in the moments after history was made. >> yesterday, my brother, john, is the sharpest iron i've ever encountered my entire life. >> referee: >> reporter: after facing opposition, the harbaugh clan will have something to celebrate today. today is jack and jackie's 50th anniversary. and two great cities thankful for that union. >> absolutely. that's great. coming up, will this man, the prime suspect in the disappearance of robyn gardner

7:32 am
there's little chance that gary giordano will be free today. we're told that the judge is probably going to keep him detained without charges for another 30 days. but giordano's attorneys are on the offensive, insisting their client is innocent, that the police have been playing dirty tricks and that investigators have really no hard evidence. this morning, aruban authorities tell "gma" that for the sixth time, they'll ask the judge to keep the only suspect in robyn gardner's disappearance locked up. suspected of murder, gary giordano, now jailed for over 100 days, is considered a flight risk. jose baez, renowned for spear-heading casey anthony's acquittal last summer, and chris lejuez, are interested in two men. they are speaking exclusively to "gma." they feel that investigators are unable to build a case, even with "gma" confirmation, that blood found at this beach, where
7:33 am
the two were spotted together, was, in fact, gardner's. they tell "gma," he could just as easily be a free man, if it were not for a few phone calls. >> you think he would not be here if it wasn't for the calls to am/ex. >> my personal opinion? >> reporter: please. >> i don't know. if you're going to use that against gary, you have to consider the source. he was advised to do it by his lawyer. >> reporter: two days after robyn gardner disappeared, giordano called american express, inquiring about the $1.5 million travel insurance policy he took out on gardner before they traveled to this island, naming himself the beneficiary. one representative told the fbi giordano sounded excited, like he was about to win something. still, they have no body, no weapon, and no convincing motive. that's why his new attorneys are clamoring for his release. >> he's innocent. >> reporter: how confident are you? >> it doesn't even pass the
7:34 am
laugh test. where you're going to say a person goes to an island where he's never been before and doesn't leave a trace of a crime? i don't buy it. i don't buy it. >> reporter: giordano continues to maintain that she drifted away from him while they were snorkeling. >> gary should be released. and i don't think you should hold someone, detain them, put them in prison, unless you have some evidence of a crime, for which there is none. >> reporter: now, over 100 days and investigators are still trying to figure out whether giordano is a criminal mastermind. or a guy with some really bad luck and bad legal advice. we could see murder charges pressed within two weeks. lara? >> thank you so much, matt gutman. we shall see. this thanksgiving weekend, one california family getting together for the first time in years. and they have their father to thank. he is a man who came terribly close to being lost, though, forever. abc's abbie boudreau brings us this remarkable story.

7:36 am
they weren't where i wanted them to be as a family, working together. and i wanted that one last wish. >> reporter: but would that wish come true? five days passed before the children realized their father was missing. >> my heart dropped down to my feet. >> reporter: putting all their differences aside, they searched for their dad. police traced his cell phone. and finally, a break in the case. >> once we got the clarification of the pinging of the towers, we were just like mounted up. >> reporter: meanwhile, 68-year-old david lavau was giving up. he survived on eating bees and black ants and drinking creek water. he left his family one final message. >> i scratched on the car, that the accident, the dead guy, wasn't my fault.

7:38 am
