Moving little Christmas Story

Author: jtyroler from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This starts out with a very busy architect coming home with Christmas gifts to find his wife and young daughter had left him on December 23rd. The wife was tired of being neglected. The husband was supposed to take their daughter to see Santa Claus so she could ask him for a puppy.

For some reason, the wife and daughter stop off at a hotel in the late afternoon and go to bed while it's still light out (a travel clock shows about 5:30) on their way to stay with the wife's sister. The daughter is worried about Santa finding her. The husband drives all night searching for them and does manage to find them, but only sits in the car.

When the wife wakes up, the daughter is missing - this is where Dan Matthews and the Highway patrol come in. The husband is brought in for questioning as a suspect. The highway patrol finds a young girl's handkerchief with what appears to be blood on it.

The girl shows up at a Salvation Army shelter because of the Santa Claus bell ringer. She's holding a small dog with a wounded paw. Somehow, she found a blanket to wrap the dog with. Santa brings her inside the shelter and feeds both her and the dog some soup and that's where Dan Matthews finds her and reunites the family.
