Missing since November, 2007

In Oakland, California, Mandy Stokes leaves her apartment to run errands on the Sunday after Thanksgiving, 2007. When she doesn't return by the next morning, friends and family aren't immediately concerned. But Mandy's mother, who lives in Atlanta, knows something is wrong. A mother's intuition sparks a missing person's investigation by Oakland Police that leads from a cavernous ravine where Mandy's car is found abandoned back to the apartment she shares with her brother. In a bizarre twist, Police transfer the case to the Homicide Unit, and a mother's worst nightmare begins to unfold -- could her son be involved in her daughter's disappearance?
