Sgt. Joe Friday is called back from vacation to work with his partner, Off. Bill Gannon, on a missing persons case. Two amateur female models and a young war widow have vanished, having been last seen with one J. Johnson. In the course of tracking down Johnson and the young ladies, the detectives wind up with two different descriptions of the suspect, one of which closely resembles a dead body found in a vacant lot. But the dead man, later identified as Charles LeBorg of France, proves not to be J. Johnson, when a third young model disappears.

Did You Know?
Jack Webb (I) and Julie London
had been married from 1947-53, when they divorced, but the two remained close friends up to Webb's death in 1982. His friendship with his former wife even extended to her next husband, Bobby Troup
, who--in addition to later co-starring with Julie on the Webb-produced series Emergency!
(1972)--is cast here as George Freeman, the brother of one of the case's victims. Troup also often appeared in roles on another Webb series, "Dragnet 1967" (1967). See more
The trailer-park manager tells Friday and Gannon that Don Negler is currently living in the park. They get to his space--which is vacant. The tenant in the adjoining space says Negler had left maybe fifteen minutes before. This is highly unlikely; it would take him quite a long time to disconnect the utilities and unhook the trailer from its mounting in the space, and hook it up to his car--and he would have to do it without attracting the manager's attention. On top of that, he would be doing it in a pouring rain--and at night. See more
The boy implores you to find whoever it is that did this to his father and see that they are punished for what they have done.
