A break in the "Mulholland Mauler" case when a victim survives provides details about the car, etc. Adam-12 is asked to patrol the area to look for suspects. They ticket a young girl for hitchhiking and warn a young couple parked in the hills to leave. A car pulled over over matches the description but there is no conclusive evidence. He is the most likely suspect of the several men picked up. They find an empty car owned by a young woman and locate her friend at a nearby service station. They persuade the suspect to show them where the missing girl was dumped and find her alive. Written by

She could be anyplace. A bar, another party, or at the bottom of some gully up on Mulholland.
Officer James A. Reed
There's gotta be a thousand ravines up there.
If she has been hid, it will be like looking for a needle in some haystack.
Officer Peter J. Malloy
Maybe we can find this needle if we start with the guy that dropped it.
