11:31 am
new details. she got the pictures that we showed you a few minutes ago. what can you tell us? >> reporter: we have been gathering new information since the last time we saw you at 11:00. i just spoke to her grandmother, this is the woman who raised her during grade school and high school in maryland. this is the woman who shared those new photos with us. she tells me that she spoke with a detective not long ago, within the past half an hour, hour, who told her that her atm debit card was used this morning in maryland. the detective wanted to show the grandmother the picture of the man who was using the card to see if she recognized him. the grandmother told the detective that she did not recognize the man in the picture. again, this is new information and something, of course, that we will ask police about during that 12:30 news conference that's expected to happen in the next hour when family will be speaking alongside police making a formal public plea for the safe return of the woman.
11:32 am
what we are learning from family members is that they were approached by detectives this morning who told them that her debit card was used in maryland this morning. that's when it was last tracked. there's some kind of picture of the person who used the card. again, this is all new information. this is a very fluid situation. so we hope to get more information from police a little bit later on this afternoon. >> we have learned that she went to school in maryland. is there any connection between her abduction and the fact that she and her abductor may have been in maryland earlier today? >> reporter: that's a great question. we talked to the grandmother about that. she tells us that she lives in california, maryland. the detective told her it was in aberdeen, maryland. it's about an hour distance apart. the grandmother said that she did have a couple of male friends when she was living in maryland. so when she was looking at that picture, she was trying to
11:33 am
determine if it looked like any of her friends from maryland. the grandmother said, no. it may be a coincidence it was used in the same state, maryland, where she grew up. >> rosemary connors, we expect she will be at the press conference in an hour. we appreciate the information. as much as we can do to try to track down this young woman. the police will hold a news conference on this case at 12:30. we will bring it to you live on nbc 10. it will be carried on a sunny and mild day today. don't get too used to this nice weather. we never do. more changes are coming. nbc 10 first alert chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz is here with the forecast. >> especially this time of the year we see the weather changing pretty consistently during any given week. we start off the week with

sunshine and a warming trend. we will end the week with rain and a cooling trend. right now we see a fair amount of sunshine. this is the french manor in the pocono mountains. high clouds coming in from the west. you can see those on the satellite picture. they are patchy clouds. no rain associated with it. it's not blocking the temperature any. it's 67 in reading and pottstown and northeast philly. 64 in philadelphia and 68 at atlantic city international. some of the places have a really good chance of getting up to 70 degrees today. we will call it partly sunny because of the high clouds. but they're not going to be producing any kind of rain. once again, the temperature will start falling pretty quickly once the sun goes down, and that is earlier, of course, than we saw last week. we will talk more about real plunging temperatures and some potential heavy rain with the seven-day in a few minutes. voting is under way.
