Missing and Alone (2021) Movie Script

Dad! Dad! Dad!
No, no, no, no, dad!
Daddy! Daddy! Dad, dad! Dad...
Can someone help me, please?
Oh, please, please, please, dad!
Dad! Dad!
I'm sorry, dad.
Daddy, I'm sorry.
Daddy. Daddy, I'm sorry.
- Dad. Dad.
- Hey, Chloe.
Come on,
let's get you back to bed.
- No. No.
- Let's get you back to bed.
- Come on.
- No, he needs help.
- Come on, Chloe. You're okay.
- No. No.
You're safe. You're okay.
Oh, honey.
Back when you were little
Many years ago
Your daddy
sang a song to you
In tone so soft and low
Just a simply little diddy
In his good old Irish way
And we'd give the world
to hear him sing
That song of his today
Hush now don't you cry
Round and round
head in the clouds
Falling fast
you don't make a sound
- We're out of juice.
- Good morning to you, too.
I'm sorry. Good morning.
Happy Thursday.
And how would you like
your eggs, madame?
That's more like it.
Yeah, fine.
Judging by that look,
I'm guessing
I was sleepwalking again,
You had a full-on night terror.
I had to stop you
from climbing out the window.
Thank you. Where'd you hide it?
In the door of the fridge,
where no child
would ever think to look.
Hey, I thought
you were doing better.
I am.
Don't freak out over
a little sleepwalking. Okay?
- This weekend...
- It'll be one year.
I know.
Hey, I was gonna wait
to surprise you,
but I booked us
a little getaway.
- A spa trip?
- Yeah.
We can leave after school
You don't have to work
this weekend?
I took it off.
It's important for us
to be together,
to remember him.
- Oh, my God!
- Mom!
Have you ever heard of privacy?
Promise me you'll never do
anything like that.
You should see
what walks into the ER.
It's not real,
it's Photoshopped.
- What?
- See?
- Why would she do that?
- To get more likes. Duh!
- Give me a ride to school?
- What about your car?
- I'm out of gas, so I...
- Chloe.
When you get to a quarter tank,
you fill up.
I know! I'm sorry.
You don't wanna be
in the middle of nowhere
and then find yourself
with no gas.
Oh, God...
- Everything okay?
- Yup.
Broken heart
Sorrow tears
I know it hurts
after all these years
And just maybe...
- Have a good day.
- Mom...
Has someone
ever asked you for help,
and you wanted to,
but you weren't sure?
- What?
- Never mind.
- No, please, Chloe, tell me.
- No, honestly.
It's really nothing.
I'm PMS-ing is all.
Chloe, you know
you can tell me anything.
- Right?
- I know.
And if you don't feel like
you can tell me,
your Aunt Ella is always there
for you, too.
And she's way cooler
than your old mom.
Everything's okay. Thanks.
- I love you.
- I love you, too.
- Bye.
- Bye.
Oh, hi, Pete.
Uh, we can give Chloe
a lift home
after volleyball practice
tonight if you want.
Oh, that'd be great. Thanks.
Hey, how's she doing?
Well, if she keeps playing
the way she's playing,
she's a shoo-in for a full ride.
I've already got scouts
asking about her.
You should be very proud
of that kid.
I am. And her dad would be, too.
But I worry about
how she's doing emotionally.
Does she seem okay to you,
as her coach?
The first year is hard.
It was for Mackenzie, anyway.
We lost Julie,
and then two months later,
I get this job and we move here.
It was a lot all at once.
Lashing out is normal.
- Lashing out?
- I'm-I'm exaggerating.
Uh, her therapist says
some anger is to be expected.
Chloe was seeing someone
for a while, too.
I wonder if maybe
she should start again.
Shannon, she seems fine to me.
Plus, she's involved in sports,
so she's got an outlet, right?
Yeah, I hope so.
- I better get inside.
- See ya, Pete.
Don't worry, she's a good kid.
Party everyday
party party everyday
- Yeah.
- Yeah? I'll take one.
Party party everyday
life is a party everyday
Party party everyday
This is way better
than going to practice.
Your dad is going to kill us.
party party everyday
- Here.
- No, thanks.
You sure?
Billy, don't peer-pressure her.
She doesn't want it,
there's more for us.
It's Mac.
I'm not here.
So leave a message.
Mackenzie Briana Brown,
this is the third practice
you've skipped this month.
Don't think I won't cut
my own daughter from this team.
You hear me?
It's Chloe.
State your business after the...
Hi, Chloe, it's Coach Brown.
Uh, this isn't like you
to blow off practice.
Did Mackenzie
put you up to this?
- Billy, give me your knife.
- Why?
Just do it.
You look like you've never seen
a knife before. Relax.
Shotgun. Shotgun.
Shotgun. Shotgun.
Shotgun. Shotgun. Yeah!
- Hey.
- Hi.
- Cool pin.
- Oh.
- Wolf Cry State Park.
- You ever been?
Oh, it is the best hiking spot
in Minnesota, hands down.
My dad and I used to go
all the time.
You're lucky,
uh, my old man's idea
of the great outdoors is
locking me out for the weekend
to fend for myself.
Um, I forgot about your dad.
I'm sorry, I-I didn't mean...
All good.
Um, I know what you mean.
We should check it out sometime.
- Hey, Billy! Got any more beers?
- Slow down, Mackenzie.
- It's a school night.
- You're one to talk.
When's the last time
you even went to class?
Okay, maybe I don't wanna deal
with your drunk mess again.
Such a try-hard.
You know,
I-I think she gets nervous
around you
because she likes you.
Yeah, we hooked up a few times,
but she's way too much drama.
Oh, I have, I've gotta go.
Mackenzie, are you ready?
Not yet.
Billy, what about that beer?
I can walk you home if you want.
Why are you hitting on my friend
right in front of me?
- Would you chill?
- Mackenzie, listen...
- Back off, Chloe!
- Ah!
Break it up!
Chloe, you sure you're okay?
Yeah, no, no big deal.
Billy, you beating up girls now?
Come on, man.
- Well, she started it.
- Mackenzie, get in the truck.
- Come on, take it slow.
- Mm-hmm.
Mackenzie, I told you
to get in the truck.
- Hey, here.
- Thanks.
Come on, Chloe.
Let's get you home. Okay?
Nice and slow.
Dad, you don't understand!
No, I do understand,
perfectly. Billy's trouble.
And neither of you girls
should be hanging around him.
- You hear me?
- Coach...
I'm sorry I skipped practice,
but please don't tell my mom
I hit my head.
She'll just worry.
I wasn't drinking, I swear.
Right, 'cause you're so perfect.
Not yet, Chloe.
Mackenzie, that's rude.
Sorry. Not sorry.
- She's drunk.
- I had one beer.
I should be getting inside.
Thanks for the ride.
She's lucky
to have a friend like you.
Thanks for trying to be
a good influence on her.
Well, that was embarrassing.
You're never gonna have friends
if you keep acting like this.
Why don't you adopt Chloe
if you love her so much?
- Feeling okay?
- Yeah.
Something happen
at volleyball practice?
- No. Why?
- What are these for then?
I just have a headache.
I belong somewhere
I wanna be
But I see...
- Hey.
- Hey.
- You do the math homework?
- Yup.
I'm sorry, okay, about today.
I didn't mean any of it.
Billy makes me so crazy.
Seeing you two together,
I don't know, I lost it.
I wouldn't do that to you.
I didn't even wanna
go there today,
but I did it for you, remember?
I know. And he is obviously
not interested.
But... did he say anything
about me?
Mac, I think...
All good.
So, what about tomorrow?
Are you game or what?
Jealousy trapped in...
Oh, good, you're home.
Think you can be ready to go
in 30 minutes?
I wanna beat the traffic.
And don't forget
to pack a swimsuit.
Mom, Mackenzie invited me
to her cottage tonight.
Can't you go another weekend?
Tomorrow's an important day.
I want us to be together.
I know, me, too, but you hate
all the outdoorsy stuff,
and that's kind of how
I wanna remember dad.
Even after what happened,
you still feel that way?
Why do you always make me feel
guilty about that?
No, honey, no, no, I'm-I'm not.
Forget it.
His heart attack
could've happened anywhere.
Well, and, yeah, it's just that
if it happened here,
then w-we could've
gotten him to...
Or if you were there,
you could've done CPR.
Mom, I'm sorry.
Mom, I'm so sorry.
Mom, I did not mean that.
If I had known CPR,
maybe I could've saved dad.
No, no.
It's no one's fault.
No one's fault, okay?
The spa is fine.
No. I just...
I want you to be happy, okay?
- Mm-hmm.
- And dad would, too.
- Okay.
- I love you.
I love you.
Coach is gonna be
right behind us.
It's too tight with
the three of us in the truck.
- Drive carefully.
- Mm-hmm.
- Gas is topped up.
- Thank you.
Make sure you lock
all the windows and the doors
at the cottage, just in case.
I've heard bears will walk
right in if they smell food.
- Mom...
- And Pete needs to be with you.
- If you go on any hikes...
- I'm sixteen, not six.
- Are you calling him? Seriously?
- Real quick, to check in...
I'm always safe. You know that.
And-and-and I share my location.
And whenever you text me,
I always text right back.
And when you were my age,
you went to Florida
with your friends,
no cell phone,
and your parents didn't know
where you were for days.
- So?
- So stop being so hard on me.
You know why I'm worried,
though, right?
Aunt Ella calls it
I can't stop living my life
so you won't worry.
You're right. This is my issue.
Have a good time.
- And drive carefully.
- You already said that.
I know.
I'll probably say it again.
- I love you.
- I love you.
- Hello?
- Hey, Mackenzie, it's Shannon.
Uh, could I speak to your dad
real quick?
He just left to gas up. I can
get him to call you, though.
No, no, that's okay.
- Have fun this weekend.
- Thanks, Shannon.
I'm so glad you let Chloe come.
Hey, uh, I'm just gonna go
get some groceries.
Burgers okay for dinner?
I'm going to Chloe's
for a sleepover, remember?
Ah, you two made up.
That's great.
It's good for you to be around
someone like Chloe.
Maybe she'll rub off on you
a little.
- Have a good time.
- Thanks, dad.
You're home!
Yeah, that lock is very sticky.
Sorry, Ella, I forgot to call,
Chloe decided to go
to Mackenzie's cottage
for the weekend.
Okay, so you're looking
for a replacement spa date?
- Because I am so in.
- I already canceled.
- Next time, though?
- Yeah, yeah.
And you're still welcome
to stay here for the weekend,
if you'd like a break
from the roommates.
Oh, I don't, I don't wanna
be in your hair.
Ella, I would really love
to have the company.
I don't wanna be alone
this weekend, what with...
Okay, I'll tell you what,
how about we honor my big bro
with a few bottles
of cheap Merlot?
So Chloe and Mackenzie
are still friends?
- Yes. Why? What did I miss?
- Well...
They always seem to be fighting.
I mean, I cannot keep up.
Must be nice
being the cool aunt.
Thank you.
It's like she's
not telling me everything.
Ah, pretty normal
for a-a teenager.
I guess.
I finally got some time off work
and booked
this special getaway for us,
and she wasn't into it.
Now, see, this is why
you need to call me,
because I'm down
for a spa getaway anytime.
Just a sec.
I wanna text her goodnight.
Let me guess.
She already replied?
- She's such a good girl.
- She is.
Mackenzie, where are you?
Mackenzie, cut it out,
or I'm turning back.
- Not funny!
- Oh, your face!
That was mean.
I thought the woods
didn't scare you, Chloe.
You've any idea
how dangerous it is
going off the trail in the dark?
Okay! Sorry, Ms. Buzzkill.
Hey, good thing I convinced you
to come,
or I'd probably be dead already.
Oh, where's the party?
I thought you said it was gonna
be all boring hiker types.
I never said boring.
- Dude, cheers.
- Hey!
We need to go find a place
to set up our tent.
- Got any to share or what?
- For you two? Of course we do.
- All right! My kinda camping!
- No, Mac. Mac!
We... It's hard enough
setting up a tent in the dark.
Don't make me do it alone.
Of course.
I can help you with the tent.
What's your name?
- Chloe.
- Chloe. Nice to meet you, Chloe.
I'm Tim.
- So, how old are you girls?
- How old do you think we are?
No way you're both 18.
I'll put money on that.
Sigh. That's what we get
for all the SPF-50.
Gonna be carded till we're 30,
right, Chlo?
Would I know you guys
from anywhere?
Did, you know, did you go
to Red Ridge College?
We're both on full rides
at Rossmore U. Volleyball.
So who's up for a drinking game?
- Oof, I'm up for that.
- Yeah?
- Let's do it.
- Shall we?
Thanks. Over there.
- Mind if we stay here? Yeah.
- All right.
It's almost midnight.
I can't believe
it's already been a year.
Some days I still expect him
to walk in that door.
Hey, let's have a toast.
Oh, Chloe should be here.
What if she's having
a hard time tonight?
- Maybe I could FaceTime her in?
- Hey, uh, Shannon.
Can I, um,
offer you some advice?
Of course.
Let her come to you. She'll call
if she wants to talk.
- To James.
- To James.
Are you serious?
See, easy access,
and saves you
from having to lug around
one of those
heavy bear containers.
Well, aren't you the pro!
You didn't need my help at all.
You were just humoring me,
weren't you?
The company was nice.
Wish I was trekking with you
instead of Zach.
We're way overloaded.
We had to set up our basecamp
here and only do day hikes.
- Couple of amateurs, really.
- Mm.
How much of that load
was beer, though?
Hm? Hm?
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
Whoo! You guys ready
to play now or what?
- Zach's kicking my butt.
- I can see that.
I love it here.
Me, too.
Me and my dad used to come here
every Memorial weekend.
Poor guy. He's really
missing out this year.
Ooh, Zach,
are you afraid of the dark?
You took her in his place?
Can I say something?
Sorry, um...
He passed away last year.
I'm so sorry, Chloe.
Found my rainbow
I know we just met.
I'm pretty easy to talk to.
You can tell me about him
if you want.
Found my rainbow
Slipping down
Where did I go wrong?
Where did I go wrong?
Where did I go wrong?
- Well, I'm ready for bed.
- What? Zach, come on!
Yeah, no, I think
you should find your own tent.
I should probably
be getting back.
Mac'll be wondering where I am.
Nah, you should probably
just stay here
and keep me warm.
Okay. A little longer.
Pete! Pete!
What are you doing at home?
Why'd you leave the girls up
at the cottage on their own?
What are you talking about,
Mackenzie slept
at your place last night,
didn't she?
No, Chloe said she was going up
to the cottage
with you and Mackenzie.
This is Chloe, state
your business after the...
Chloe, this is mom. Call me
as soon as you get this.
This isn't like her
not to answer my texts.
Better text her again.
Her location-share is off.
Jump in. I think I know
where to look for them.
- Hey, Billy! Whoa, whoa!
- Whoa, whoa!
- Where are you goin', buddy?
- What did I do?
You know where Mackenzie
and Chloe are?
I'm Chloe's mom.
Have you seen her?
No. Why? Did something happen?
Was there another party here
or something?
Uh, not that I'm aware of.
You haven't seen anything
from them on social media?
- No, man, I'm not into that.
- Come on, Billy.
- You must know something.
- Hey, man, back off.
- Leave him alone, dad!
- Mackenzie!
- Where's Chloe?
- I don't know.
You lied to us, Mackenzie,
there's gonna be consequences
if you don't tell us
what happened, right now.
So if Chloe's missing,
it's automatically my fault,
because she can never do
anything wrong?
- Oh, come on, Mackenzie.
- Okay, okay.
There's this thing
called Game Of 72
where you disappear for 72 hours
and you see how worried
people get that you're gone.
No. No.
Chloe would never do that.
She lied to you, and you still
think she's little Miss Perfect.
All right, that's enough.
Let's go.
Don't worry,
if she knows where Chloe is,
I'll get it out of her.
If she hasn't texted by now,
something's wrong.
Even if she was lying,
she would've texted by now.
We're gonna find her, okay?
Don't worry.
Come on,
I'll give you a ride home.
Just a minute. Hey, Billy.
I swear, Mackenzie
was hiding out here this morning
before I got here. Look.
I haven't seen Chloe since,
I don't know, Thursday.
After school, a bunch of us
were here hanging out.
Wait, no. Thursday?
Chloe had volleyball practice
on Thursday.
Why didn't you mention the girls
drinking and skipping practice?
Chloe told me she wasn't
drinking, and I believed her.
She's a good kid.
She was just blowing off steam.
Do me a favor, Pete. Don't make
my parenting decisions for me.
Shannon, I'm sorry.
I-I was wrong.
I'll let you know
what I find out from Mackenzie.
Chloe's probably just crashing
at a friend's.
Please have her call me, yeah.
Well, you can just call me
if you hear from her, okay?
- Yeah.
- Yeah. Great.
- That's the number.
- Thank you.
Thank you. Okay.
- Any luck with Sarah or Em?
- No.
No, both said the same thing,
last they spoke with Chloe,
she was still headed
to the spa with you.
Nobody knows anything.
What kind of trouble
could she be getting up to
if she's not even telling
her best friends?
- Any word?
- Not yet.
- What did Mackenzie have to say?
- So, uh...
Sounds like they were originally
supposed to do
this Game Of 72 together,
but they had a fight
and Chloe took off in her car.
- When was this?
- Late. Around midnight.
Did Mackenzie say
where Chloe was headed?
- She didn't know.
- Come on.
Mackenzie must know
something else.
Believe me,
I grilled her for hours.
That's all she told me.
I'm sorry.
She's not answering texts.
Her location finder is off.
I think
something might be wrong.
Or she could literally walk in
that door any minute.
Kids this age are always
testing their limits.
Lying a bit, seeing
what they can get away with.
It's normal. She's probably
at a friend's place.
No. That's not
what's happening here.
- I think I should call the cops.
- Whoa, whoa, whoa.
I-I think you need to give it
a bit more time.
Yeah, that's easy for you
to say, Pete.
Mackenzie's home safe.
Look, Shannon,
I really hate to say this,
but I was the exact same way
when I was Chloe's age.
And if I knew
the cops were involved,
I would've stayed away longer.
Yes, hello, I'd like
to report a missing child.
This is a copy of her driver's
license and registration.
It's a blue Honda.
Thanks, Mrs. Baker.
I have to tell you, this
Game Of 72 is a real red flag.
But that might not be
what's going on here.
Two kids pulled the same prank
last year.
Cost us a ton of resources.
Did Chloe ever mention
the Game Of 72 to you, Ella?
Yeah. I mean, her friends
were joking about it.
But she never said
that she was considering it.
Why didn't you mention this
- Ella, answer me!
- Uh, uh, sorry.
Someone just posted this online.
I guess it's circulating
on social media.
One of Chloe's friends
just texted it to me.
Uh, what happens now?
Will there be a search?
If she's still missing
in 72 hours, give us a call.
Please! Sorry.
You-you have to help me.
You have to help me find her.
So far we have a photo
of your daughter inebriated.
You don't know that for sure.
A friend who said
she asked her to lie,
and the Game Of 72.
What would you do in our shoes?
More. I-I would do more.
Ella, I can't believe
you didn't tell me that.
What else has Chloe told you
that you've been
keeping from me?
She just wants someone
to talk to.
You know,
she-she doesn't wanna worry you.
Did you know
she was lying to me?
No! No. God, of course not.
But I think she feels like she
can't tell you things, Shannon.
I mean,
you're pretty overprotective.
Wouldn't you be if you were me?
You know, this is a new account.
Like, no other posts.
Someone named LON3WOLF.
Hey, where are you going?
Stay here
in case Chloe comes home.
Don't sneak up on me like that.
Billy, I need you to tell me
if you know anything
about where Chloe is.
Listen, I don't know
what the coach told you,
but Chloe's my friend.
I'm worried about her, too.
Mackenzie said
that Chloe took off on her own
in her car last night.
- Apparently, they had a fight.
- Sounds about right.
Fighting's Mac's auto mode.
Do you have any idea where
Chloe might've gone last night,
who she might be with?
Did you take this?
Yeah, but wait.
Something's funny.
- What do you mean?
- Chloe hates beer.
Any time we've hung out,
I've never seen her drink.
This photo would seem to imply
Look, she's isn't off
on a bender someplace,
if that's what Mac's implying.
Not Chloe.
Her dad died a year ago today,
Yeah. In Wolf Cry State Park.
Help... Help me! Help me!
Please help me.
Help, help. Help me.
Help me! No, no, no, no, no!
Please, please, no, no!
No, no, no, no, please, no...
Chloe and James
had the same packs.
Chloe's is missing.
She must have loaded it into
her car when I wasn't looking.
You really think she'd wanna
go back there, alone,
to the park where James died?
Yeah. Wolf Cry
was their yearly tradition.
Oh, why didn't I think of it
Look, Shannon, Chloe knows that
park like the back of her hand,
thanks to James. She's,
she probably just camped out.
Totally safe and sound.
- I gotta go find her.
- In the middle of the night?
Shannon, that park is huge.
You're never gonna find her.
I have to at least try!
They went to the same site
every year, remember?
Site 89.
There it is.
His high-school
basketball number.
So I-I can't convince you
to wait until morning?
She hasn't answered my texts
in almost 24 hours, Ella.
She could be hurt
or in some kind of trouble.
All right,
then I'm going with you.
You're not exactly
a seasoned hiker.
- Detective Aikman.
- We've located Chloe's car.
It was left at a bus
station out on highway 12,
towed earlier today. Looks like
she may have left town.
Do they have a record of her
buying a ticket?
Station's closed now, but I can
send someone tomorrow
and see what they can find.
How about putting a trace
on her cell phone?
Listen, Mrs. Baker,
I'll do what I can,
but it's unlikely that I can get
that type of authorization.
This is all signs
pointing to a runaway.
I'd really appreciate
you trying.
I'll send you the details
for the impound.
You can pick the car up
in the morning.
- Thank you.
- So she's not at Wolf Cry.
It's only accessible by car.
Unless she ditched her car
and got another ride.
Uh, Shannon, I think
you're grasping at straws.
Why don't we wait until morning,
pick up her car,
see if we can get a trace
on her phone?
I know it sounds crazy.
Call it a gut feeling
or mother's intuition,
she's in that park.
And I don't think she'd put us
through all this, Ella.
Not by choice.
- Billy?
- Chloe's still not back?
Sorry for bothering you.
- I thought, uh...
- Thought what?
She hasn't been answering
my texts all day,
then they just showed up as read
a little while ago.
I wasn't sure if maybe
she was mad at me or what.
Mine show up as read now, too.
Why would you think
that she's mad at you?
Did you do something?
It's the same old drama
with Mackenzie.
But I didn't mean
for Chloe to get in the middle.
They were fighting over you?
- Did you know about this?
- No.
I gotta go. But, hey,
I hope she gets home soon.
Why would he come all the way
over here just for that?
It just seems kinda sketch.
He's worried about Chloe.
I don't think
we should trust him.
Wait, Mac and Chloe
are super tight.
Sure they fight sometimes,
but that's normal.
Honestly, Ella,
I don't know who to believe.
But try to keep an eye
on both of 'em.
- Uh, m-me?
- Yeah, well...
Someone has to stay behind
to pick up Chloe's car
in the morning.
if Chloe comes home on her own,
one of us should be here.
Shan, promise you'll be safe?
Sleeping in the parking lot
is not permitted.
I'm looking for my daughter. I
think she might be camping here.
- What's her name?
- Chloe Baker.
Nothing under that name.
It's a big park, though.
Teens tend to sneak in
without registering,
especially in shoulder season,
when we're understaffed.
Does this look like a site
in your campground?
Could be.
Could be any park, though.
- Right.
- Listen.
Send me that photo, I'll
make sure my rangers see it,
and we'll call you
if we see her.
Now, those are some
deadly blisters.
Not the best shoes
for this terrain.
Yeah, I'm not really
an outdoors person.
You know, I think I have some
blister bandages in my pack.
Let me just see here.
I'm here
looking for my daughter.
Any chance you've seen her?
Nope. Can't say we have.
Would you like a protein bar,
Baker. Dr. Baker.
But call me Shannon.
And thanks.
Sure you haven't seen this girl?
Her name's Chloe. She's only 16.
No. Sorry.
Come on, man,
we gotta keep up our pace.
Yeah, yeah.
It was nice to meet you.
- I hope you find your daughter.
- Thanks.
Dude, what's wrong?
Light, light. Come on.
Hey, Shannon. Anything?
The rangers are on the lookout
for her, but so far nothing.
No one's seen her.
- I'm sorry, Shan.
- Yeah, what about Chloe's car?
Oh, I just made it home
from the impound lot.
Actually, almost ran out
of gas on the way here.
You what? If she only drove
from home to the bus station...
How is her tank empty? Did you
find anything inside the car?
- No. Nothing. Totally clean.
- Clean?
Yeah. It's spotless, actually.
No. No, it's usually a mess.
Something's wrong here, Ella.
What if someone's
covering her tracks?
Okay, Shannon,
you're spinning out.
What am I supposed to do?
Listen, Mackenzie said she was
with her before she took off.
So I'll just go see what
she says the car looked like.
- Thank you, Ella.
- Of course.
Hello? Mackenzie?
Hey, Mackenzie, come on!
You know you can trust me, girl.
Anyone here?
Hey! What are you doing
in there? Get out now!
Lady, why are you going through
my stuff?
Please. I'm only trying
to find my daughter.
If you know something,
you need to tell me.
We already told you,
we haven't seen her.
- Now get out of our campsite.
- No!
The picnic table, the beer cans.
She was here!
- Tell me the truth!
- What are you talking about?
Every campsite in this place
has that same picnic table.
And a lot of hikers
drink cheap beer.
- It's what we do! What?
- Zach!
She's just looking for her kid
and she's worried.
Take a walk.
Listen, I can't imagine
what you're going through.
But we will look for Chloe,
You remembered her name.
Here. Give me your phone number.
I'll get in touch
in case I see her.
You'd tell me
if you knew something, right?
This is getting
super messed up, man.
Just shut your mouth if you
don't want to go to jail.
- Hey.
- Hey, Ella.
- Any updates?
- No. No.
But I have posts
all over social media.
You make it to the site okay?
Just finished
setting up my tent.
- How'd it go?
- Not great.
Shannon, you can come home,
you know?
No, I'm well into the park now
and I can search other trails
in the morning.
Call me if there's any updates.
I will. Hey, sleep well.
Thanks. You, too.
Why were you at my house
skulking around outside?
You scared Mackenzie.
Why would Mackenzie be scared
unless she has something
to hide?
Mackenzie's not perfect, but
she'd never do anything
to hurt her best friend.
Whoa! Look, I never accused Mac
of hurting anyone.
But I think
that we both know she's not
telling the full truth.
Look, Chloe's life
could be in danger
if something happened to her.
She's told us everything
she knows, okay?
You need to back off!
Help me!
Please help me! Help me!
I'm coming.
No. No!
Help, help...
Someone please help me!
Come on, let's go.
- Uh, where are you going?
- Out.
- Out where?
- Just out!
What's your problem?
Going to meet that boy?
Don't talk to me like that.
Young lady,
I don't know why it's so hard
for me to get through to you!
Dude, I'm done
with this conversation.
If you aren't gonna
tell her, I will.
Look, they'll find her
sooner or later.
- Don't say that.
- We need to stay out of this!
What was that?
- What did you hear?
- I don't know.
Where are you going?
Zach, you're just being
paranoid. It's a bird.
We're in a forest.
There's gonna be noises.
Can we go? Please?
- What's up? Are you okay?
- Nah.
I could've sworn
I heard something.
- Oh. Hi. Hello? Hi.
- Hi, it's Detective Aikman.
isn't answering her phone.
- Can you give her a message?
- Uh, yeah, of course.
Chloe's backpack was found
down by Moss Creek,
thanks to an anonymous tip,
and it had spray-paint on it.
We've brought in Billy Carson
for questioning.
And what about Mackenzie?
I've already taken a statement
from Ms. Brown.
We have evidence
that implicates Billy.
Y-yeah, yeah, but you need
to talk to Mackenzie again.
She's acting really strange.
Are you telling me
how to do my job?
Teenagers act strange
most of the time.
Yeah, uh, I know, but Mackenzie
and Chloe were fighting over
Billy, and I...
Once I have a chance
to speak with the suspect,
I'll be in touch.
If you have any hard evidence
to present
that incriminates Mackenzie,
by all means, bring it forward.
we'll proceed as we are now.
Hey! Hey, who's screaming?
Is that Chloe?
It's Zach!
He's busted his ankle real bad.
I need to get cell service.
Is it broken? Is it broken?
- That's a nice, clean break.
- Oh..
Listen, I heard you and your
friend back there on the trail.
I know you've been lying to me
about Chloe.
If you hurt her,
I am not afraid to hurt you.
- No! No, please don't!
- What's it gonna be, Zach?
Chloe was at the site
next to us.
And, yeah, we partied
with her Friday night.
Tim didn't know how young
she was. I swear. I swear.
Tell me everything, now!
They left our campsite
by sunrise. That's all we know!
- They?
- Chloe and...
That's it.
Hey, Mac?
Good morning.
- Hi.
- Mm.
What's up?
Oh, nothing. You just ditched me
for Tim, that's all.
What? I thought
you were with Zach last night.
Yeah, he...
He wasn't interested.
So, are we gonna spend the day
with them or what?
Well, not if you don't want to.
Let's go. Let's pack up,
hit the trail, okay?
- I wanna go.
- Okay.
Yeah, let's go.
How much longer?
I need a break.
Two more miles to Amnesty Ridge
from the Wolf Den.
Um, you brought me
to a wolf den?
I don't wanna get eaten. Thanks.
That's what my dad and I
used to call this spot.
Don't worry.
- Don't do that.
- What?
Perfect Chloe
would never litter?
No, you're just supposed
to leave
the trail as you found it.
Who told you that? Your daddy?
Okay, listen,
do you wanna just go home?
Because you're clearly
not enjoying this.
We could go back before our
parents even realize we lied.
It's the Game Of 72, Chloe,
not 13.
Who cares? No one knows
we're doing this anyways.
And we had fun last night,
Um, you had fun
with the hot college guy
while his creep of a friend
blew me off.
I said I was sorry,
and you're the one who made me
hang out with them anyways.
Same with Billy.
You can't get mad at me
just because...
'Cause what?
Everyone likes you
better than me?
That's not
what I was going to say.
The Game Of 72
was supposed to be my thing.
Now you wanna ruin that
for me, too?
You asked me to come!
I don't even care
about the stupid game.
I wanted to be here this weekend
for my dad!
I'm so sick of hearing
about your poor
dead dad. If you
really loved him so much...
Why are you always trying
to steal mine?
Well, maybe if you were a better
person, your dad would
like you more!
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!
I didn't mean to,
I didn't mean to.
I didn't mean to.
I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna
go, I'm gonna go find help!
Mac... Mac, wait for me...
Don't leave me. Don't... Mac...
See you soon, dad.
The ranger will meet us
in the clearing over there.
It's only a 100 yards away.
Zach told me everything.
I know you were with Chloe
on Friday night.
You're LoneWolf, aren't you?
You posted this pic.
No. Not me.
I didn't take that photo.
- Zach took that photo.
- Let me see that.
I swear, I don't know.
No, I took this picture.
I sent it to Mackenzie, see?
That's-that's the one he took!
Mackenzie must have
Photoshopped herself out
and posted it as LoneWolf.
Why would she do that?
Chloe could still be
in the park.
I'll get Zach to the ranger,
come back and help you, I swear.
Thank you.
I'm headed to Amnesty Ridge.
That's where Chloe and her dad
always went.
Take this.
Keep it on channel one.
Let me know where you are,
I'll get the ranger.
I'll send a search party,
we'll come for you.
- Okay?
- Thank you.
And send me that pic
as soon as you have reception.
- Of course. Of course.
- Where is he?
- Where is he? Where is he?
- Come on. Come on!
It's all gonna be good.
It's all gonna be good.
Shannon. Leave me a message.
Hey, Shannon,
call me as soon as you can.
- Can I help you?
- Every time I try Shannon...
It goes to voicemail.
I got worried.
- Any news on Chloe?
- You tell me.
What do you mean?
Has Mackenzie said
anything new to you?
I-I heard a rumor that Billy
had been brought in
for questioning.
- Really?
- I mean, who knows if it's true?
It, it wouldn't surprise me,
He's a, he's a troubled kid.
I-I know
I, uh, overreacted yesterday.
Mackenzie can be difficult,
I know that,
but she's had
such a rough couple of years
since her mom died.
You can't blame a parent for
being overprotective, right?
You need to get the truth out of
her, Pete, whatever she knows.
Uh, Shannon is wandering alone
in the woods right now
on a hunch.
- And if Mac could help...
- She's doing what?
That can't be safe.
W-where has she gone?
Wolf Cry State Park,
where James died.
She thinks Chloe might be there?
W-why'd she go by herself?
- I gotta take this.
- Is-is that Shannon?
- Hey.
- Ella.
I finally got reception.
Chloe was here with Mackenzie.
Two hikers ID'd both of them.
Is it Shannon?
Did-did she find Chloe?
Is Pete there?
Don't tell him
anything yet, Ella.
He might try to cover
for Mackenzie.
I need you to contact
Detective Aikman
and have her bring Mackenzie in
for questioning right away.
Okay, uh, sounds like a plan.
I'm sending you
a photo now that proves
Mackenzie was here with Chloe
and lied about it.
She Photoshopped herself out.
She was LoneWolf all along.
Got it.
So what's your plan now?
I'm heading to Amnesty Ridge,
but it's hard
to get reception out here.
I need you to follow up
with Aikman
and get a real
search party sent out.
If anything happened to Chloe
here in the park,
Mackenzie should know where.
I think you're right about that.
Is Pete still there?
Yeah. But don't worry,
I'm dealing with it.
Hey, Shannon,
please be careful out there.
I will.
Be careful?
I-it's-it's getting late.
Is she planning to search
the park all night?
Sorry, Pete, I, I've got to go.
I promised her I'd follow up
with Detective Aikman
on that Billy lead.
If there's anything I can do
to help, let me know.
- Thanks.
- Okay.
No. She said she had a photo.
She must have
just lost reception.
You need to go
get Mackenzie right now.
I can't bring another teen in
for questioning off hearsay.
- Send me the photo if...
- We could be too late by then.
- Hello?
- Are you home yet?
Uh, yeah. Why?
Turn off the lights.
Don't say anything to anyone.
Don't answer the door.
Don't answer your phone.
Dad, what's going on?
Shannon's at Wolf Cry.
- Did they find her?
- You better hope not.
What if they did?
Dad, am I, am I going to jail?
I'm taking care of it.
Chloe! Ah...
Where are you?
Where's Chloe?
Hey! Give me my keys.
I know
that you were at Wolf Cry.
Give me my keys.
Listen, I know what it's like.
You messed up.
You feel bad.
It does not have to go down
like this.
I need to go inside.
I know you're a good kid.
Things can still be okay.
Just tell me what happened.
It wasn't my fault.
But no one would know that.
No one would believe me.
Mackenzie, what happened?
Chloe fell.
- Where?
- It was steep.
- What, near where you camped?
- Yes. Well, not exactly.
We were hiking to the ridge
when it happened.
Mackenzie, why wouldn't
you tell anyone?
She wasn't moving
when I called down to her.
I was so scared.
I couldn't help her. I couldn't.
It was too far down.
Mackenzie, was...
- Was she...
- I didn't do it.
Everyone always blames me.
If you run,
they'll think you're guilty.
This is your chance
to do the right thing.
I'll tell the cops
you wanted to help.
And I know
that you're a good person.
You're a good person, Mackenzie,
- Yes.
- Good.
So help me.
Where is Chloe?
Ella. Anything?
Ella? Hello?
Shannon? Hello? Can you hear me?
Mackenzie is with me
and we are coming to you.
- What did she say?
- You're right.
- Chloe's in the park.
- Oh, thank God.
But, Shannon, Chloe fell,
and it was a steep drop.
There is a chance she could be
really, really badly hurt.
Mackenzie thinks she...
No, she's gonna be okay.
I'm gonna find her. Where?
Off the trail,
south of Amnesty Ridge.
Mackenzie says Chloe and James
called it the Wolf Den.
The Wolf Den? Got it.
I'm so sorry, Mrs. Baker.
It was an accident.
I should have told you.
Hey, Ella, I need help.
Tell police to send
a rescue helicopter.
- I already have.
- Ella?
Hey, Shannon? Hello?
Are you, are you still there?
Ella, if you can still hear me,
take the north entrance.
It's closer to Amnesty Ridge.
You may even beat me there.
Shannon, I'm so sorry.
We're gonna find her.
She's gonna be okay.
Chloe, I know you're here.
Please be, please be here.
Tim! Hello? Can you hear me?
Please, please...
Tim, are you there?
Is anyone there?
Shannon? Is that you?
Yes! Yes! I found her!
Call Search and Rescue.
We need help now.
She's in a ravine,
three miles southeast
of Amnesty Ridge,
off Split Rock Trail.
Copy that, the rangers say
there's a helicopter
en route already.
Help is on the way.
Hey! It's me.
Thank God I found you.
Pete! You have to help me.
Chloe's down there.
I need to get to her.
You have rope.
You can lower me down.
How did you know how to find me?
You wanna save her, I get it.
We're all animals
protecting our children,
struggling to survive.
I feel the same about Mackenzie.
Why would you need to protect
Mackenzie, unless...
They're just kids, Shannon.
They make mistakes.
Oh, God...
Chloe didn't fall.
You, you knew where Chloe was
and you didn't tell me?
I don't want to cause
any more pain.
I promised Julie that I would
help her go when it was time,
but I... I couldn't do it.
Mackenzie was the strong one.
I can't let you punish her. I
can't let you destroy her life.
Oh. Like you destroyed Chloe's?
- Police are on the way, Pete.
- When they get here...
They'll see
that Chloe had a bad fall.
And, unfortunately, so did you.
Oh, God!
is that you?
Keep fighting, Chloe.
Chloe? Chloe?
Chloe? Chloe.
Mom, you found me.
Help is coming in at any minute.
Chloe, stay with me.
Stay with me.
I know I hold on too tight.
I just want you to be safe.
Don't leave me.
Don't leave me...
I'm right here, mom.
Oh, Chloe.
I love you so much. So much.
- Morning.
- For me?
- Mm-hmm.
- Oh.
Aunt Ella will be here
any minute.
Gotta beat that morning traffic.
- Right.
- Mm-hmm.
Now where did I leave
my hiking boots?
If your dad could hear me now...
I think he can.
- What's this?
- It's from Mackenzie.
Part of her therapy program,
I guess.
- It's an apology.
- Oh.
Are you gonna answer her back?
I mean...
You don't have to if you don't...
No, actually, I think I will.
Healing power
of forgiveness and all.
Chloe Baker...
you make me so proud.
Hush darling don't you cry
I'm gonna sing you
a lullaby
What my mother sang to me
Sang me off
to the sweetest dreams
When the night feels long
Know that you are not alone
I'll be here
When the morning comes
High above the sky
There's a million
Keeping watch
Until the morning sun
I'll be here
when the morning comes
