Storyline

When 13-year old Cathy disappears, her parents Elisabeth and Jack Porterson, who have two younger sons, Daniel and J.J. who no longer feel safe and protected, mobilize help for the search, and keep going even after the police decides it's no longer worth the resources. In time Jack loses hope and faith in his marriage as Elisabeth focuses exclusively on the search. Just when even Elisabeth's confidence is no longer unshakable, they find the corpse in one of the last places on their map. The police isn't too eager to look for the killer, but she proves just as tenacious there, concentrating on a neighbor... Written by KGF Vissers

tragic story that to me is based on true life
3 January 2001 | by csavvaSee all my reviews

Many tragic parents have lost a young member of the family in this cruel world which sick people are to blame. How can you take a child's life!... There are many films with the same story line, but I don't think the message to people quite gets across. It still happens even now this moment someone out there is being hurt. I think that these films could also corrupt people, maybe even to 'copy cat', to give them sick ideas. These films are not for boring housewives with nothing to do, if you have any compassion towards parents whom have lost a child you would of at least shed a tear when they found their child murdered months later.
