Kate Jackson could have used her old Charlie's Angels castmates to ferret out what happened to her son in this run-of-the-mill, true crime TV movie. In 1990, a blue-collar Pittsburgh mother (Jackson) sends her favourite son off to college, where he goes missing after becoming entangled with a wealthy frat boy and an older, alluring con woman. Mom teams up with a private investigator to discover the sordid truth. The pacing is slow, the casting uninspired, while Jackson phones in her role as the distraught mother turned sleuth.


Mother-of-two Rose Earl proudly sends her eldest son off to college, only for him to be led into a life of crime by his dastardly roommate. When he subsequently disappears without trace, Rose embarks on a desperate search to discover what has become of him. Drama, starring Kate Jackson, Drew Ebersole and Matthew Settle.
