Most police departments do not actively search for anyone under the age of 16. For that to happen there would need to be real evidence of foul play. Even then a uniformed officer would take the original report. The report would then be assigned to a detective, most likely on the next shift. See more »

Great story, great cast, and the best film I have seen in 2019 and I watch a few hundred a year. It surprises me the overall low score, and don't get it why people scored it so low, sure no action, no superheroes or vampires that walk in sunlight, just a well written drama that hooked me from the minute it started, the last 20 minutes gave me shivers.
Superb film 10 out of 10 and shame on those that scored it so low, or is it just an indicator of what the public deems a great film these days?
