About this item

From the day Caitlin vanishes, the lives of her family members are irrevocably altered each assuming blame. As the initial days of hope are replaced by weeks of anxiety and despair, they find themselves increasingly isolated. Pursuing every angle and refusing to surrender the belief that his daughter is still alive, Caitlin's father struggles through the mountainous terrain, urging everyone to keep up the search. It is through a most unlikely source, however, that they finally find an answer.
