"Missing" on ABC7
How far would you go to save the only thing you have left in the world? At 8 years of age, Michael Winstone watched as his father, CIA agent Paul Winstone, was murdered. Now 10 years later, Paul's wife, Becca (Ashley Judd), is faced with the reality that her son is growing up. When Michael is afforded the opportunity to study abroad, his mother reluctantly agrees it's time to let him go.
But just a few weeks into his trip, Michael disappears, and Becca immediately suspects foul play. When she arrives in Rome, she begins piecing together the clues left behind. It isn't long before the kidnappers realize they've picked a fight with the wrong woman, because Becca has a secret of her own -- before Paul's death, she was also a lethal CIA operative. If she wants to find her son alive, Becca will have to rely on old friends and reopen old wounds. All of her resourcefulness, skill and determination will be put to the test -- but a mother's love knows no limits.
In the premiere episode, Becca learns that her son disappears while studying abroad, and it's a race against time when she travels to Europe to track him down. Amazing locations and thrilling twists abound as it's revealed just how far one mother will go to protect her family, on "Missing," premiering at 8 p.m. on March 15 on ABC7.
