In this series, John Walsh, the father of a murdered child hosts this show that illustrates crime stories which have lead to the capture of hundreds of fugitives from the law. With as much luridness and accuracy as possible, various crimes are dramatically recreated with an appeal for any viewer with information as to the crime and the perpetrators to call the show and the authorities and help the cause of justice.

The Fox network cancelled the show in 1996, but reversed the decision because of a public outcry from viewers, politicians, and law enforcement agencies. The series was off the air for six weeks before it was finally reinstated. See more »

In the summer of 1981 in Hollywood, Florida when Adam Walsh was abducted and murdered it sent off a panic and fear all over the United States. The father of Adam that being John Walsh lobbied Congress to pass the Missing Children's Bill to facilitate the police in such cases all around the country and a national center for missing children was even created. Then in 1988 John Walsh with his special interest had a nationwide show "America's Most Wanted" which was seen as a criminal search. By 1995 350 profiled criminals had been captured with the help of viewer tips. This series is so popular that it still currently shows on FOX and has made host John Walsh so well known that he is considered a celebrity to many people. The most terrible crimes such as murder and rape and serial killings are profiled so this is serious stuff. John Walsh may have lost a son to crime but he fights for not only Adam but many other victims to show the rights of a victim must be noticed and most important of all the goal is to catch a criminal.
