granddaughter margot some how was found alive in thaus tee different agencies pored over this home in houston, the fbi, austin police and texas rangers all involved combing the property for clues the home is more than 150 miles from austin, texas, where 33-year-old heidi broussard and her baby margot disappeared last week the search for them tragically appears to have ended here heidi's parents talked to us earlier this week, at the time, hopeful. >> you think she's probably in trouble somewhere? >> she would not just leave. she would never leave her son. never. >> reporter: now they're heartbroken, with tammy broussard barely able to share the news she confirmed to nbc news police confirmed a body found at houston home was very likely her daughter, pending medical
examiner examinations. the 32-year-old was found in the trunk of a car on a property her daughter margot survived police have not publicly confirmed the details broussard said she was told. they would not comment overnight. our cameras rolled as an ambulance pulled into the driveway police forming a human shield near the door and carrying something or someone to the vehicle. moments later, a baby's car seat grabbed for transport. a miraculous piece of good news amidst unthinkable horror. as for three-week old margot, we're told she's receiving care right now at a local hospital and is currently in custody with child protective services and for the couple that lives here, we're expecting austin police to clarify later today what their
connection is to the crime and their relationship to heidi. >> glad that sweet baby is safe. what a terrible story. sam, thank you very much, we will have the latest developments in this case as they unfold. we are heading into the final weekend before christmas millions of us will use it to reach our holiday destination. the question is what can you expect during the busiest holiday travel season in 20 years. dylan has the forecast in a moment first, nbc's gabe gutierrez is watching the roads and the airports, he's at laguardia here in new york.

out why this rocket has not achieved the perfect or bit they wanted, that could be an indicator they may have problems reaching the space station we'll see how that plays out as you probably know, the united states has not launched americans from american soil in an american rocket in 8 1/2 years and so this mission is all about proving that boeing's star liner is up to the job 3, 2, 1, and lift off. the rise of star liner, a new era of human space flight. >> reporter: history in the making and thundering off the pad at the kennedy space center this morning. >> looks good. >> reporter: as a giant atlas 5 rocket powers through the predawn sky carrying boeing's star line spaceship which will soon carry american astronauts, food, and the only passenger on board, rosie, wired with more than a dozen sensors to collect data on the g forces humans will soon experience going from 0 to
17,000 miles per hour. nasa astronaut nicole man will be on the first crude flight. >> my emotions are getting pegged with excitement and pride, stress and really amazement. >> 3, 2, 1 ignition lift off >> reporter: earlier this year, elon musk's spacex successfully tested its spaceship called dragon spacex and boeing have contracts with nasa to supply the next generation of spaceships, but boeing has struggled this year with the grounding of its entire 737 max fleet. nasa's chief insists boeing space division is completely separate from its airplane division. >> and ultimately it is nasa that is certifying the vehicles that our astronauts will fly on, and our engineers and our
technicians are embedded with their engineers and their technicians and we will not fly a space craft unless we deem it certified safe for flight. >> reporter: it's a very sensitive joy stick. >> it is and after that you won't need to touch that forward at all. >> reporter: in a cockpit mock up, boeing chief astronaut chris ferguson showed me how he will one day dock star liner with the space station after 8 1/2 years of hitching rides on russian rockets. >> what does it mean to have americans lifting off from an american spacecraft. >> ask an american, right, it's the pride of having this capability to get back and forth. >> reporter: a lot of pride here at the kennedy space center. boeing and spacex want the bragging rights to say they were the first to carry astronauts to the space station. this could happen in the first
six months but as of this morning this moment, they are working this problem involving star liner and the nasa chief tweeting that this rocket has not reached the proper orbit to rendezvous with the space station. >> tom, as you know, this represents a big shift, this partnership for nasa so why has nasa decided to get together with boeing and spacex to launch spaceships now >> reporter: the bottom line is that nasa is now going to be essentially renting or leasing these spaceships made by spacex and boeing, so nasa is getting out of the business of building rockets themselves it's going to outsource that it wants to drive down costs, and really encourage the private sector, private business to get involved and to make space flight, especially in low earth orbit, something that is economically viable. >> tom costello in kennedy space center, thank you so much. we're helping you game plan for the final weekend of holiday shopping. good morning, i'm vicky nguyen and why am i in my pajamas, this morning, my producer and i are squaring off in a shopping challenge.
