16-year-old Molly Bish is a local lifeguard at the town pond in Warren, Massachusetts. She goes to work on the morning of June 27th, 2000 and minutes later, mysteriously disappears.

Initially, the State Police believe that Molly drowned. A search and rescue operation does not find her in the water and inadvertently contaminates what is now considered a possible crime scene. With no evidence preserved, investigators start looking into people closest to Molly. They look at Molly's boyfriend, who has a cut on his lip the day of her disappearance, but he passes a polygraph.

Molly's mother, Magi believes she saw a predator hanging around the pond the day before Molly's disappearance. She works with police to come up with a sketch of the suspicious man she saw driving a white vehicle. Everyone who resembles this sketch comes under scrutiny and it becomes a wild goose chase for the police. Tips come in from all over the country, but no concrete suspects arise from these calls.

A three-year investigation turns up nothing solid until a strange connection leads to a huge break in the case.
