Samuel L. Jackson,
In Alaska, the veteran police detective Jon Koski is near retirement and is a specialist in missing children. Koski is troubled by a failure in his past and is haunted by nightmares with a woman and the little girl Aurora. When the seven year-old girl Amy Noble is abducted, Koski is assigned to the case by his chief Jack Musker, who is the uncle of the child. Amy lives with her parents, Musker's sister Sarah Noble and her estranged husband Jim Noble, who is an executive in oil business and former DA, and had an affair with his secretary seven years ago. Koski interrogates Amy's nanny Megan and she presents the psychic Farley Connors that is the host of the TV show Beyond. Farley becomes Koski's prime suspect but soon they team up to resolve the case. Written by

A movie that felt like a made for TV movie. Neat idea but a little slow and predictable. Nothing to rush & see. I say B-.
"I know she hasn't been gone 24 hours but this is my family, my niece." After a child goes missing detective John Koski (Voight) is on the case and tries to find the missing niece of the Chief of Police (Mulroney). When the mother and babysitter tell Koski about a psychic who may be able to help Koski is reluctant to accept him. I really wasn't sure what to expect from this at all. The best way to describe this is the feel of a made for TV movie with better acting and an OK idea. While this is really nothing super original or that exciting it is still worth a watch and could have been worse. The biggest problem is that the person I suspected about a half hour in turned out to be the right one. I'm not sure if it's because I watch to many movies and have picked up on certain clues or if the movie is just that predictable. Either way this is still worth a watch but nothing to rush and see. Overall, not bad but would work better as a TV show instead of a movie. I give it a B-.
