Ryan (35) follows an anxious, wiry man (20s) down a dark city street. As the man turns and sees him, Ryan angrily demands answers. The man refuses, telling Ryan to leave him alone. But he won't relent, and the man takes a swing at him. As a melee ensues, pedestrians break up the scene, tearing Ryan away from the Man. And, as the Man runs off, swallowed by the shadows...Ryan vanishes.

Our agents discover that Ryan's 6-year-old daughter, Lindsey, went missing three years ago. His dogged search for answers into her disappearance led to his divorce and tore apart his life. Did the three year anniversary of Lindsey's unsolved case put him over the edge? New information leads the agents to wonder if Ryan may be responsible for her going missing in the first place. But as they dissect Ryan's recent behavior, they realize that his recent trip to a psychic was not about finding his daughter, but his hunt for the son of a couple he befriended through a Parents of Missing Children support group. Did Ryan's investigation into the boy's disappearance lead him to the perpetrator? Or, did one of the other demons he was chasing come back to haunt him? In the end, just as Ryan finally comes to terms with this loss, his journey to give another family closure may end up recovering his missing daughter.
