    Missing persons detectives Pam Childs and John Smith catch the case of Nellie Litvinova, who disappeared a few hours after her daughter brought her home from a doctor s appointment. The doctor had given Nellie an injection of pain medication for her broken wrist. Nellie s daughter, Olga, fears her mother may have become confused and wandered off. Her identification and money are still in her bedroom--the only things missing from the 74-year-old s home are her bus and train passes. An expansive citywide search ensues as detectives canvass buses, trains, churches and hospitals, but fail to turn up any sign of the missing woman. With Nellie s life hanging in the balance, detectives Joe Struck and Pat Riley join the hunt.moreless

    For Detectives Ayanna Corbin and Mike Cochran, this case starts off on the wrong foot. Barbara Naklicki holds off a full two days before reporting the disappearance of her husband, Ed, under the mistaken belief that she needed to wait that long before filing a report. Yesterday would have marked their second wedding anniversary. Consequently, their first clue is a dire one: Ed s work van has been found in a forest preserve on the city s edge. His sack lunch is still sitting in the passenger seat. Next, Detective Bob Berent gets a strange phone call from a hotel on Michigan Avenue, Chicago s main shopping drag. The hotel reports a guest took a room three nights ago--and vanished. Berent searches suitcases and finds clothes, a computer and a cell phone. Next, Berent checks the hotel s surveillance video--and spots the guest exiting the hotel.
