Storyline

When 13-year old Cathy disappears, her parents Elisabeth and Jack Porterson, who have two younger sons, Daniel and J.J. who no longer feel safe and protected, mobilize help for the search, and keep going even after the police decides it's no longer worth the resources. In time Jack loses hope and faith in his marriage as Elisabeth focuses exclusively on the search. Just when even Elisabeth's confidence is no longer unshakable, they find the corpse in one of the last places on their map. The police isn't too eager to look for the killer, but she proves just as tenacious there, concentrating on a neighbor... Written by KGF Vissers

Not worth viewing
6 April 2002 | by (Skane, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Was checking this title and user comments here before I watched it on TV yesterday. All I can say that anyone that cares for at least a bit quality to a story should avoid it. It isn't worth the time. I stayed for long but even if the plot was developing towards the end it couldn't keep me interested - switched channel 10 minutes before the end.

Anyway, the plot brings you what you can read as a summary, presenting the movie. It do not surprise you at all, with a helluva US family that suddenly misses their teen daughter. Then it present some villains that obvious that you immedialtly can count them out as the guy they should look for. And the very caring mother (a boring act by Mrs. Long) seems to control the Police Dep of that town. Whenever she has some crazy idea about the case (that even been cold after several months) she calls up the police and an hour later they are all there with metal detectors, dragging a lake an so on...

And the real villain... ...it took me about half an hour to understand who he was (I'm not that bad that I tell you here - in case you do not follow my advice, the rest of you have no interest anyway).

In between you will have to listen to a lot of crap lines, amatuer philosophy about family life...

Play a record or watch the news instead.
