Rob Simms (31) puts on a dark suit and tie, preparing for a funeral his fiancee doesn't want him to attend. He insists he has to go even though he was not invited. Rob arrives at the funeral and watches from afar as mourners gather around a flower-covered casket and throw him unfriendly looks. As the service ends, Rob walks away and vanishes.

Our agents' investigation reveals Rob as a self-made man with a troubled past. After weathering drug problems as a teenager -- along with a contentious relationship with his family -- Rob left home, got a business degree and formed a successful private plane charter company with a close friend, Paul Hadley. But when a company mechanic dies in a freak accident, a rift forms between the two entrepreneurs. Did Paul turn on Rob to prevent him from publicly admitting that budget cuts led to the accident? Did friends or family of the dead mechanic seek revenge against Rob? Or, did a secret trip Rob took to his native Los Angeles put him into harm's way? Samantha and Jack fly to L.A. to follow Rob's trail. Through dual investigations in New York and Los Angeles, our case takes a turn when the agents discover Rob's true reason for his west coast trip: to look into a brutal double murder that took place fifteen years ago which he may have witnessed. By digging into the unsolved crime, has Rob fallen into the hands of the killer? Is the killer someone from his past? Samantha and Jack struggle to find the truth before it's too late...
