FBI Raids Giordano's Gaithersburg House

(WUSA) -- Friday night, the FBI arrived at Gary Giordano's house to execute a search warrant. He is a suspect in Robyn Gardner's disappearance in Aruba.

Earlier Friday, the Aruban solicitor general Taco Stein said authorities there consider him a suspect and that they are seeking a court order Monday to detain him longer.

When we asked if Aruban authorities had asked the FBI to search Giordano's home. Stein replied, "In our request to the American authorities there will probably be something about searching the house. But at this moment that request has not yet reached U.S. authorities. So if that place is being searched it's not on my account."
Stein said they will also need to furnish U.S. authorities with enough information to seek a search warrant from a judge in order to search the home.

Sibling Day At NIH

Bethesda, Md. (WUSA) -- When one child in a family suffers a life-threatening accident or illness the others may feel left out. It isn't always an easy road for the "healthy sibling."

The staff at the National Institute of Health started a program held each year, that recognizes kids, who can sometimes feel overlooked

This summer, a lively group of youngsters put on gloves and scrubs for a medical odyssey through the massive Clinical Center at NIH.

They're the siblings of children getting cutting-edge treatment and on this day, they learn about analyzing lab samples. What it feels like inside an MRI machine and they visit what can be one of the most imposing places of all, the operating room.

The idea of this event is to de-mystify some of the procedures their sick brothers and sisters face.

Konner Koch tells us "I just learned a lot about what Karly has to go through all the time."

Favorite Fridays: What's Your Favorite Mexican Spot?

Favorite Fridays: What's Your Favorite Mexican Spot?

There is nothing better this time of year then sitting outside with chips, queso and a cold margarita. It’s quite possible that I could eat Mexican every night and be happy. It’s also quite possible that I’d become a bit overweight so I only allow myself to indulge once a week.

Check out some of my favorite restaurants below and vote on yours!

Oyamel Cocina Mexicana- One can't go wrong with anything by Jose Andres. The food is spectacular (I’m partial to the soft tacos)... but the real reason you go to Oyamel is the tableside guacamole, which is better than Rosa Mexicana’s. Get the guacamole spicy and you will not be disappointed. For a fun twist on a margarita, get the Oyamel Margarita; it has whipped salty air on top as apposed to a salted rim. If you are looking for gourmet Mexican food and great cuisine, Oyamel is the place to go.
