In September1973, in Chile, the American journalist Charles Horman arrives in Valparaiso with his friend Terry Simon to meet his wife Beth and bring her back to New York with him. However, they are surprised by the military coup d'état sponsored by the US Government to replace President Salvador Allende and Charles is arrested by the military force. His father Ed Horman, a conservative businessman from New York, arrives in Chile to seek out his missing son with Beth. He goes to the American Consulate to meet the Consul that promises the best efforts to find Charles while the skeptical Beth does not trust on the word of the American authorities. The nationalism and confidence of Ed in his government changes when he finds the truth about what happened with his beloved son. Written by

The title of the movie "Still Missing" was changed to Without a Trace
(1983) to avoid confusion with this film's title. See more
When the consular guide picks up Ed and Beth at the Christian Science Reading Room for their tour of the hospitals, it is pouring rain. They use umbrellas before getting into the car, but as they drive off the driver's window is rolled halfway down and he isn't getting wet. See more
And what are the basics? God, country and Wall Street?
You know what I mean.
I know, I know. God bless our way of life!
Oh, a very good way of life it is, young lady, no matter how much people like you and Charles try to tear it down with your sloppy idealism. I can no longer abide the young people of our country who live off their parents and the fat of the land and then they find nothing better to do than whine and complain.
