Storyline

When mobster Charley Radick learns that he has leukemia and only a short time to live, he decides the time has come to visit his daughter, Margaret, now a young woman. When Charley had gone to prison for a 10 year stretch, he had left her with the Wilsons but when he got out, he decided to concentrate on moving up in the rackets and left the girl with them. When he visits the Wilsons however, he's told that Margaret left some three years before. When Eliot Ness learns that Radick is dying, he asks him to come clean and give him the organization's books. Radick makes a deal: if Ness can locate his daughter, he will give him the information he wants. Ness then turns to Lt. Agatha Stewart of the Missing Persons Bureau for help. Written by garykmcd

Bureau of missing persons
11 January 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Robert Stack and his squad are given very little to do here as the episode revolves around guest star Barbara Stanwyck. No doubt that her character of a missing persons lieutenant in the Chicago PD of the Thirties was meant for a television series that was never picked up. I don't recall Stanwyck ever playing a police officer in any of her big screen work.

In this story Stack is coming to Stanwyck for help. He has to locate the daughter of mobster John Larch who is dying of leukemia and who was raised by adoptive parents. Only then will he make a deal with Eliot Ness to smash his own criminal organization before his rivals start a war for Larch's territory.

The trail leads to Peggy Ann Garner, all grown up now with a bitter tale to tell of how she was used and abused. Both Garner and Stanwyck do well by their roles and there's also a bit part by Edward Asner as one of her subordinates.
