Storyline

The CSI team is called to help when Karen Mathews reports her son, Jesse, missing from a playground where he was playing on the swings. Witnesses report seeing a man with a blue baseball cap near the swings. Clues in the park bathroom include blood and the boy's underpants. The boy is eventually found in a store, accompanied by a woman with a man fitting the earlier description. But the couple with the boy claim that he is their son Adam, while Karen insists he is her missing son Jesse. Written by John Hosking

Who's Your Mommy?
14 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

Here's another odd case: a mother reporting her son kidnapped from a park....and then, as the manhunt ensues, we find out the kid has two moms, and the other - originally from New Jersey - is the real mom, according to DNA. She and her husband have the kid but the other "mom" says it's her kid....and, one look at her home confirms the kid lives there.....or does it?

What is going on? How can this be, especially since we meet the grandparents of the boy whose mother called in the kidnapping. Sound confusing? It is, but there is an explanation.

This episode was very different in that there really doesn't involve a crime. There is no blood, not guts, nothing disgusting. In other words: not the normal CSI show.
