((Police believe a 9-year old girl abducted from her own home is still in the hands of her kidnapper ..and the search has expanded across the state of California. A statewide Amber Alert has been issued for Jennette Tamayo, kidnapped Friday afternoon from her home in San Jose. Police say their suspect is a Hispanic man, possibly as short as 5 foot 2 and he may have scratches on his face from a fight with Jennettes mother. Initially police thought it might have been a burglary gone wrong, with the family coming home to surprise the man. But newly-released surveillance video captured the kidnapper on tape. And although its fuzzy, the video clearly shows he targeted this house.
(CATHERINE UNGER/SAN JOSE POLICE)

Its not like hes canvassing the area. You dont see him driving around and looking for a house. He knows exactly where hes going. The kidnapper broke into the familys home and waited for the little girl to come home. When Jennettes mother and 12-year old brother arrived later, the brother saw the mans car parked in their garage. He immediately sees his sister in the back seat of this car. Her hands are down to her side. We dont know if she is bound at this point, but shes not moving. Shes very upset, he describes her face as being terrified. It turned into a mothers worst nightmare she and her son, fighting frantically to stop the kidnapper. Police say the man picked up items around the house, hitting her over and over again. She is injured very badly and from the time stamp, they may have been in there as many as 9 minutes with him in this struggle. Both of them trying to fight him off. This time, it wasnt enough. And the man escaped, speeding off with Jennette in the back seat of his car.
(CHRIS LAWRENCE/CBS NEWS)

Police didnt get the license plate of the car, and Jennettes mother and brother dont recognize the kidnapper. Investigators dont believe any custody issues have anything to do with her kidnapping. Chris Lawrence, CBS News, Los Angeles.))

Monkey pox is a virus in the same family that causes small pox.
Since May, Monkey pox has sickened nearly 20 people in three states, and the death rate can be as high as ten percent.
This is the first time it has ever been found in the Western Hemisphere.
Investigators traced the outbreak to an exotic pet dealer near Chicago. They concluded that an exotic rat was possibly infected, and passed it to prairie dogs that were later sold.

Swofford went on to say that the ACC is disappointed with the lawsuit in light of the fact that one of the plaintiffs visited the ACC office on May 6th, expressing a desire to join the Atlantic Coast Conference.
That plaintiff was Virginia Tech, but President Charles Steger responded by saying that the visit was an exploratory one, not one in which he asked the league to accept the Hokies in the expansion, rather to get a sense of what might happen.
Miami, Boston College, and Syracuse have until June 30th to join the ACC or face a 2 million dollar exit fee instead of a 1 million dollar penalty from the Big East.

Ken Schrader got the madness started with this wild ride thanks to a brake failure just 8 laps in. He backs into the wall before getting upside down and eventually catching fire. Schrader was able to walk away from that scary situation.
Dale Jarrett then cuts down a tire causing him to lose control of the UPS machine. Jarrett too had to escape the flames shooting from his car. D-J finished 42nd.
With just 3 laps to go, Terry Labonte runs right over Jeff Green. Green ends up making hard contact with the inside retaining barrier bringing out the 5th and final caution of the day.
That allowed Tony Stewart to coast across the finish line under caution for his first Pocono win and his first victory of the season.
