6:02 am
the victim and suspect phones traveled the same paths, and dna found on the bottom of esteban's shoe was matched to michelle. it was around 10 a.m. yesterday that hayward police arrested esteban at her union city home. they also searched the house and took away bags of evidence. cbs 5 spoke to corazon marisigan the mother of scott marisigan and he is the ex- boyfriend of murder suspect giselle esteban with whom he has a five-year-old daughter. three days before michelle le went missing scott took out a restraining order against his ex-girlfriend after she threatened to shoot herself. >> like the time he got stalked in san francisco. so we don't know what, you know, it's kind of like we don't know what's going to happen next with her temper. >> the background in the case, michelle le disappeared the night of may 27th when she took a break from her nursing class at kaiser hospital in hayward to go to her car.
6:03 am
>> reporter: it wasn't until the next morning that police found michelle's car abandoned about half a mile away. her blood was found inside. but there was no body. yesterday, her brother michael spoke out about how tough it has been, especially because today is his 24th birthday. >> she would always call me to tell me happy birthday and she loved me. i just want to hear her voice so badly. [ crying ] >> reporter: michael also indirectly pled with esteban yesterday saying, quote, we only ask that she have the human compassion to please tell us where michelle is. as for esteban, she is due in court this afternoon at 2:00 for her arraignment. an emergency landing this morning for a passenger plane that was on its way from san francisco to new york. the airbus 318 landed in grand junction colorado after an engine failure.

6:05 am
man at the civic center station. and then at one of the those protests, bart shut down underground cell service and that just amped up the protest after that. on august 22, police arrested 35 protestors mainly on two charges: failure to obey a peace officer and for illegally blocking a right of way. fines are between $100 and $200 for those offenses and bart said it spent a lot on the protests so far about $300,000 to deal with them a number likely to grow. so now bart's board president, bob franklin, wants to raise the fines for protests en fractions to deter them -- infractions to deter them in the future. here's what the bart spokesman had to say about the plans for this afternoon. >> we are going to take stems to do wah we can to make sure our customers are safe, the trains are on time and those steps include extra bart patrols on the platforms and concourses of downtown san francisco stations. we are also going to have our volunteer staffers wearing yellow vests helping customers throughout the evening commute.
6:06 am
>> reporter: he also said he didn't rule out shutting off cell service again though will sounds like that would be one of the final resorts that bart would use. the other big loser in all of this is other service agencies like muni because they stop here at the powell street station. they say that they have already lost $70,000 because of the protests so far. frank. >> all right. anne makovec live in san francisco, thank you. the upcoming 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks means special security for a famous bay area landmark. all available chp officers all on duty over the weekend, some of them protecting the golden gate bridge. surveillance cameras, other equipment have been upgraded since the attacks 10 years ago. now, there's been no specific threat but officers will be on the lookout. president obama is gearing up for a crucial speech this evening before a joint session of congress. he will unveil his latest plan to reduce the nation's unemployment rate. now, that plan is expected to include an extension of payroll

6:10 am
no major hot spots though. no big accidents out there right now on any bridge. live traffic camera towards the south bay, out of downtown san jose, everything is clear and some overnight roadwork is wrapped up. that is your traffic. back to you. >> thank you. >> we like the singing elizabeth. 6:09. violence at candlestick park, the problem grows. the new attack following a game there. afraid of needles? that's no longer a reason to avoid the flu shot. how the process is becoming almost pain-free. and a big win if you like to vent on facebook. the ruling that could change the way you post on the website. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

of the clouds but it's not as thick as yesterday. that being said, the visibility is down to a half mile into santa rosa. as we head throughout the bay area, you have mostly clear skies inland, couple of patches of fog inside the bay, cloudy at the coast. this afternoon, still a couple of clouds out at the beaches, temperatures there in the 60s and not as hot inland but still very hot in spots. you have some mid-90s into the afternoon. 70s inside the bay and 80s at the santa clara valley. so it looks like things changing up just a bit as high pressure weakening somewhat. we have more low clouds and fog showing up around the bay area today, monsoonal moisture up in the sierra nevada. and some of that likely to play a part in our forecast as we head in toward the next couple of days. high pressure still in control though and it looks like it's holding on, although weakening somewhat. this low will eventually start to drift a little bit further to the south and kind of retrograde off our coastline. that will bring some subtropical moisture to our on the weekend. temperatures today still hot in the central valley. 101 in fresno, 99 sacramento and 91 in yosemite with the

6:33 am
in fact, the two have a 5-year- old daughter together. three days before michelle le went missing, scott took out a restraining order against his ex-girlfriend after she threatened to shoot herself, giselle esteban. >> like the time that he got stalked in san francisco? so we don't know what -- you know, it's kind of like we don't know what's going to happen next with her temper. >> reporter: and some background on the case. michelle le disappeared the night of may 27th when she took a break from her nursing class at kaiser hospital in hayward to go to her car but it wasn't until the next morning that police actually found her car abandoned about half a mile away. blood was found inside but there was no body. michelle's family conducted seven searches for her and they asked giselle esteban to tell them where michelle is. >> no words can adequately explain the motions we feel at this moment but know that we
6:34 am
are still determined to bring her home. >> reporter: esteban not talking to investigators at this point and has asked for her lawyer. she is due in court this afternoon at 2:00 for her arraignment. so guys, we'll have to see what happens then. >> thank you, stephanie chuang. an emergency landing this morning for a passenger plane on its way from sfo to new york. it happened just a few hours ago in grand junction, colorado. the fire department says an engine failed on the airbus 318. it's operated by the airline virgin america. some passengers said they saw some flames coming out of one of the engines, as well. the airline telling cbs 5 all 111 passengers are now staying at a nearby hotel. they are safe and now waiting for alternate flights to be arranged. this is for you bart riders out there. you could be inconvenienced again during the rush hour commute out of san francisco. protestors are expected to be at the powell street station this evening. anne makovec is there with bart's push to deter future demonstrations. good morning, anne. >> reporter: good morning.
6:35 am
the board is talking about trying to get the state to increase the fines for people arrested during this protest but in the meantime there is another one scheduled for 4:30 this afternoon. and the protest group says their goal is to try to get bart to open up the gates and let passengers ride for free. of course, this is just the latest in a string of protests over the last several weeks since july 3, when bart police shot and killed a man at the civic center station. at one of those protests, bart shut down underground cell service. that just amped up the protests after that. on august 22, police arrested 35 protestors mainly on two charges: failure to obey a peace officer and for illegally blocking a right of way. fines for those infractions are between one and two hundred dollars. bart says it spent around $300,000 dealing with protests so far and that number is likely to grow. so they are trying to deter people from taking part in these protests.
6:36 am
in fact, bart board president bob franklin wants to get the state to raise the fines for protests infractions to deter them in the future. he is not giving a figure on how high he wants the fines to be. the group organizing this protest tonight is called "no justice, no bart." there could be some spinoff of "anonymous" although they say they are not related this. protest again to start this afternoon at 4:30. another loser is muni. they say in these protests over the last several weeks, they have lost about $70,000 and they are not even related to bart. they just share the same stations where these protests have been going on. >> domino effect. all right, thanks a lot, anne. heat lovers, i have some bad news for you. it's going down a little bit, though. >> we'll check in with mr. sunshine himself, lawrence. >> thank you. you know what? it's not going to be bad. we're just not talking triple digits around the bay area today. nice start to the day. hey, you can see some of that subtropical moisture in the
6:37 am
distance there, maybe more thunderstorms over the sierra nevada. we are going to have some of the subtropical moisture over the next few days. fog and low clouds at the coast, some spilling into the bay right now. temperatures in the 50s and even low 60s in livermore, only 40s into santa rosa and napa there seeing more dense fog there. sunshine and heat inland. not the triple digits but hot enough. 94 degrees in fairfield, 93 livermore. 85 sunny in san jose. and about 68 degrees in san francisco. time now for traffic with elizabeth. >> thanks, lawrence. and we are going to go right out to highway 4 because this is definitely one of our slow spots right now. our sensors, you can see that they are turning red now as you make your way past hillcrest. but the backups or at least the brake lights continue all the way out into pittsburg now. so the morning commute has officially started. we are seeing slow traffic as well all the way down the eastshore freeway including as you pass ashby avenue. you can see a few cars there. it's a little hard to see because our camera is
6:38 am
positioned on the drive times these caltrans warning signs so as you can maybe tell 14 minutes is the drive from ashby out towards san francisco downtown. the metering lights are on at the bay bridge. so there is a slight backup there 5 to 10 minutes to get on the bridge. systemwide everything is on time right now for bart. but once again protests planned this evening at the powell street station. president barack obama presents his jobs plan before a skeptical congress tonight. the plan is expected to include an extension of payroll tax cuts, more federal spending on repairing infrastructure, giving money to states to curb teacher layoffs and extending unemployment benefits. republicans say they want the president to take a different approach. cbs 5 will of course provide live coverage of the president's address at 4:00 today follow by the eyewitness news at 5:00. steve jobs once called it a spaceship and today the apple campus in cupertino is going to
6:39 am
take a step closer to reality. kcbs radio's matt bigler with the blueprints for the newest ipod called a spaceship, doughnut what do you know about it, matt? >> we have seen pictures of apple's new space age campuss before. >> reporter: this campus is located near 280 and wolf road, 176 acres. the main building is about four stories tall. we knew that. it's a giant circle made of glass and aluminum which steve jobs describes himself as if a spaceship landed. >> if we can't, then we have to go somewhere like mountain view and we would take our current people with us and we could give up and over years sell the land here and the largest tax base would go away. it wouldn't be good for
6:40 am
cupertino. >> no, of course not. >> and wouldn't be good for us either. >> reporter: jobs talking about why they wanted to stay in cupertino and why he hopes the cupertino city council will approve the project. it will house the campus will house about 13,000 employees. that's 1,000 more than we heard about originally. and of note is a sculpture that could go on the campus of the company's most famous employee, steve jobs himself. that's according to the "mercury news." now, all of this will go before a hearing tonight at the cupertino -- in the city of cupertino. also according to the "mercury news," apple is apparently growing so fast that as soon as the company finishes apple campus 2, which is is what it's being called, in 2015, the company may have to start on apple campus 3 right away to hold all the new employees. that's the latest from here in san jose. back to you guys. >> amazing how fast it's growing. all right, thanks a lot, matt. a shake-up at bank of america. the company is splitting itself into two units. consumer and commercial.
6:41 am
that means as many as 600 branches will be shut down. experts say that this move signals that broader and deeper layoffs than those previously announced by the bank are imminent. the bank's shares are down 44% this year. coming up, facebook rakes in the dough. the new milestone for the social network. >> and from the ultimate fighter flick to a night at the on practice, "eye on the bay's" liam mayclem has a lot of entertainment options for your weekend and will join us live. >> the market opened about 10 minutes ago. let's check the early numbers. looks like investors still trying to make up their minds what fed head ben bernanke is going to say and the president's upcoming jobs speech tonight. we'll get n update from kcbs moneywatch reporter jason brooks in the meantime. ,,,,,,,,

u-s good morning, bay area. you getting up to a great day ahead. we are starting out with low clouds that have stretched inside the bay but that's going to break up very nicely, going to see a beautiful day again, although the temperatures going to start to cool down just a bit. so with that in mind, temperatures not going to be in the triple digits as we head in toward the afternoon but starting out, numbers in the 50s for the most part, some low 60s in the warmest areas inland, clear skies still in the interior valleys. by the afternoon that's where you will find the hot spots well into the 90s by the afternoon hours. still, 70s inside the bay, 80s toward the santa clara valley,
6:45 am
