Two wanted holdup men (Monty and Jack) abduct Dr. Elliott and take him to a heavily wooded area to extract a bullet from Jack's shoulder. They are spotted by 10-year old Tommy Evans, who was playing nearby. Tommy returns to his home and calls the Highway Patrol. Dan Mathews and Sergeant Morris respond, but Tommy disregards Dan's directions to stay away from the men and finds himself captured and roughly treated by the increasingly desperate felons. Dan uses a ruse to get Tommy away from the situation, after which he and Sergeant Morris find themselves in an armed confrontation with Monty and Jack. They are handicapped by the necessity to avoid injury to Dr. Elliott, but Tommy manages to help out one last time. Written by Sam Spear
