Storyline

The dead body of ten year old Daniel Lanham is found buried in Harwood State Park in Pennsylvania. Missing since November when he and his father, Joseph Lanham, were camping, Daniel was kept alive over the winter before being killed in March. Experienced hiker and camper Joseph was and is a suspect, most notably now since he purportedly stopped looking for Daniel around the time he was killed. Reviewing the crime scene, the BAU find another dead body of a boy around Daniel's age, who also was killed months after his abduction. Reid suspects that the serial killer would have murdered more boys over several years over the entire course of the Appalachian Trail, and that he lately has confined himself to a smaller portion of the trail due either to his age or a physical disability which is making him less mobile. The unsub is working like an animal in the woods, hibernating with the boys over the winter before disposing of them. Meanwhile, adolescent brother and sister Robert and Ana ... Written by Huggo

Superb and Very Disturbing
10 December 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Not often seen in CM this episode deals with the worst of what happens to children. In keeping with their style nothing salacious is shown but an incredible performance by an amazing young Gattlin Griffith certainly sent shivers up my hardened spine (not easy as a youth worker of twenty years). It did make me question what an eleven year old actor (playing a ten year old) would have to know to play certain scenes so well. I just hope that directors can explain what they need without explaining why they need it. These days kids know far too much far too young. Although he is always good this is his best, rarely given the opportunity to show his deep talent in small roles, The New Daughter is another highlight.

Although the profile begins before they leave the briefing room and a spotlight on Ried's geographical profiling, this is one where is plays little importance as it is interrupted by the main theme of this episode. The indomitable human spirit and bravery of one so young caring for and leading to the early escape of his little sister and eventually his own but to his own detriment.

Regardless of the distasteful matter more than hinted at, it has a warming ending with two abducted children returned alive to their parents summed up by Morgan's comment: "How often does that happen?"
