John and Krista Walker report their two daughters kidnapped, but the youngest managed to hide in a closet. When an arm is found in the glades, bitten off by a crocodile, Krista falsely points to her scorned lover Art Pickering. Adolescent Lana walker is found with her tennis instructor David Kendall, but came consensually and reached statutory consent age. To the team's dismay, the media coverage dies down now the arm can 'only' belong to Cosuela, missing daughter of Francisco Valdes. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


This episode tackles the disparity that occurs with Missing White Woman Syndrome, where the media, community, law enforcement, etc. pull out all the stops if a missing, abducted, or murdered young woman comes from an affluent Caucasian family and fits the stereotype of the attractive Caucasian female (fair skin, blonde or light brown hair, blue or hazel eyes, athletic build, etc.), whereas similar cases of abduction or murder involving women of Hispanic, African American, mixed-race, or other ethnic groups, and/or are of lower income groups are virtually ignored by the media. Notable cases of Missing White Woman Syndrome include Polly Klaas, Natalee Holloway, Dru Sjodin and Jean Benet Ramsey. See more »
