      A dramatic ending to that multi-state Amber Alert we told you about last week. Missing California teenager Hannah Anderson was found safe at a campground near Cascade, Idaho late Saturday.

      President Obama is on vacation this week. Friday he held a news conference that made lots of news.

      The President seemed irritated with Russian President Vladimir Putin.. calling out Putin for his body language during joint appearances (like the one in June), and saying Russia has been ratcheting up anti-American sentiment and rekindling old stereotypes of the Cold War.

      He also called out Republicans for the constant attempt to repeal Obamacare. In a major defense of his signature legislation, the President calling repeal the "holy grail" for the GOP. The President says there is zero chance of that happening, and he doubts the GOP will shut down the government over funding the law.

      Wendell Goler reports on the power of the Federal Reserve and the President's coming choice to name a new head to replace Ben Bernanke.
