John Walsh and Investigation Discovery are partnering to pursue fugitives on the run and locate missing children in a brand new series.

During In Pursuit with John Walsh, the victims' rights advocate and his son, Callahan Walsh, will lead viewers through unsolved violent crimes where time is of the essence.

The hour-long series will explore two cases each week through the eyes of family members, friends, and local authorities who are desperate for resolution.

“If at least one child comes home and one homicide is solved, we will have done our job,” said series host Walsh, whose six-year-old son, Adam, was kidnapped from a mall in Hollywood, Florida, on July 27, 1981, and later found dead.

“Now, with the help of the passionate fans at Investigation Discovery and my team, we have a greater chance of catching these bad guys once and for all,” he added.

In Pursuit with John Walsh premieres on Wednesday, January 16, at 10/9c on Investigation Discovery.
