A foster couple call Detectives Benson and Stabler to the scene of the crime when their ten-year-old adopted daughter disappears. It soon comes to light that she ran away to meet with a man named Erik Weber, whom she met on the internet and whom Benson and Stabler suspect of ulterior motives regarding the girl. Weber denies any wrongdoing, and also expresses romantic interest in Benson. However, as the investigation continues, the detectives realize that the girl's foster parents may be hiding something that could change the entire course of the case. Written by NBC Publicity

Young actor really makes the episode
22 September 2010 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

While the 12th season premiere features top-notch guest stars in the form of Joan Cusak, Peter Strauss, and Henry Ian Cusick, it is ten-year-old Bailee Madison who really shines in the installment.

Madison plays the adopted child of Cusack and Strauss who has been "remade" in the image of the couple's natural child who was abducted many years ago. The young performer is quite believable in each scene in which she appears, especially when she tells Benson of the lengths that her mother has taken to alter her appearance to match that of the missing child.

The ending of the episode is in typical "ripped-from-the-headline-Law-&-Order" fashion.
