One Step Too Far

15.50

Hours stretch into days which stretch into weeks. Volunteers go home, police are assigned new missions and the missing hiker Timothy O’Day becomes one more missing person, vanished without a trace. Until Frankie Elkin – missing persons specialist – comes to town. Fresh off her case in Boston, Frankie heads to Wyoming, determined to find Timothy and bring him home – whatever the cost. Frankie joins a seven-day woodland search team, lead by Tim’s father Martin, as they venture deep into the dark forest to uncover the truth. Broken tree limbs and traces of blood suggest a wild animal may be lurking nearby. Frankie knows better. But with secrets swirling and tensions raised in the group, it becomes clear that Frankie Elkin’s newest case could be her last.

IF HE NEVER LEFT THE WOODS, WHERE DID HE GO?

A young man disappears during a stag weekend in the woods. Years later, he’s still missing.
