Waiting in line to board the plane to the Dominican Republic for a household holiday. Winnie and Dave Anderson faced every parent ‘s worst incubus when their seven-year-old-daughter, Heather, vanishes without a hint. Winnie went into an drawn-out mental dislocation. Tried to stay unagitated at first, she became more and more despairing and started together humor her hubby oppugning people about their girl, but none remember holding seen her. They besides were accompanied by Dave ‘s brother Albert Anderson, Dave ‘s sister in jurisprudence Carol and their thirteen-year-old boy, James.
Over the speaker unit a adult male ‘s voice paged Heather Anderson. “ Heather Anderson, delight study to one of the security individuals instantly, Heather Anderson delight study to security instantly. ” About an hr subsequently. “ 911, delight describe your exigency. ” An officer answered the exigency call. “ My niece, she is gone, oh my God, person took her. ” said Heather ‘s aunt. “ Madam calm down. Where are you? ” asked the officer. “ At JFK airdrome, we ca n’t non happen her. ” Carol responded. “ Who am I talking with? ” asked the officer. “ Carol Anderson, I ‘m Heather ‘s aunt. ” The officer asked for the name of her niece. “ Can you tell me your niece ‘s name? ” Carol answered. “ Heather. ” “ Heather what? ” asked the officer patiently. “ Anderson. ” Said Carol. “ And where was Heather last seen? ” asked the officer. Carol started to shout. “ Oh my God. ” The constabulary officer said tried to acquire all the information he needed. “ Madame stay with me, Madame. ” Suddenly the phone connexion broke down. Sirens are heard geting the airdrome.
Winnie and Dave started to speak to the caput of NYPD – investigator Dempsey.
“ Mr. and Mrs. Anderson, my name is detective Sean Dempsey from the NYPD, and this is Sammy Marvin, the caput of The Airport Security. ” Winnie started shouting “ Person kidnapped heraˆ¦ ” Dave explains “ She was with her cousin at the nutrient tribunal, and all of a sudden she was n’t at that place any longer, ” said Heather ‘s male parent. The assigned investigator made notes. He asked “ Do you have a recent exposure of your girl? ” Winnie searched into her bag. “ Here, this is the last image we had made by a professional exposure ” Winnie said, while she offered the investigator a image of Heather from her billfold.
Sammy Marvin started to manus out maps and walky-talkies. “ Look, we are here, and this is the map of the full subdivision of the airdrome where Heather can be. ” Sammy Marvin said.
“ The airdrome closed all the entry doors for 30 proceedingss, and all the members units were already in action. Heather must still be in the airdrome because there is no picture entering demoing her go forthing the airdrome ” . Sammy Marvin alleged.
Twenty members of the NYPD had the undertaking of seeking the full airdrome. “ They will
be assisted by our security officers ” , added Marvin. “ The security squads searched each shop in the airdrome, and sealed off the country already checked ” .
While the parents were taken away for some java and farther inquiring, detective Dempsey chatted with Marvin. “ If Heather is kidnapped, the kidnaper could non hold left the airdrome without his victim, so they are still at the airdrome. ”
Detective Dempsey accompanied Dave Anderson into a nearby room, and subsequently took Winnie Anderson to another office. The investigator started to oppugn Heather ‘s male parent and so Winnie about her girl. “ Could Heather had been running off from you and your hubby? ” Winnie begins shouting. “ Are you brainsick? . “ Calm down, here, have a drink ” , the detective attempts to quiet her down.
An officer entered the room and told the investigator. “ Heather was so last seen at the nutrient tribunal. But she was n’t by herself or with her parents, she was with her cousin, James. ”
“ Thankss ” , detective Dempsey mumbled while he started to walk on the manner to the nutrient tribunal.
Heather was last seen here with her cousin, about an hr ago. Detective Dempsey thought. Dempsey found James Anderson, Heather ‘s 13-year-old cousin, whom he started to interview while his parents look on. “ OK, James, state me precisely what you remember. ” Asked detective Dempsey. “ Well, since I was hungry and Heather was funny the sort of nutrient at the nutrient tribunal, our parents agreed we went together to look into it out. I decided to purchase a piece of bar. After telling it and paying for it, I turned to Heather but she was n’t at that place any longer. ”
“ Do you retrieve if there was anyone paying any peculiar attending to Heather? ” asked the investigator. “ Noaˆ¦Heather and I were interested in the nutrient. We did n’t pay any attending to the other people ” . Carol interrupted the conversation. “ I hate airdromes. I used to work at an airdrome, and ne’er got used to its crowds and ambiance. ” Carol Anderson explains.
“ James, you should be so ashamed of yourself ” , Albert Anderson, Heather ‘s uncle, all of a sudden added. “ You got excessively caught up in purchasing a piece of bar to detect that your cousin was losing! ”
At the security office one of the female agents asked “ Do you mind if I borrow one of Heather ‘s shirt, Why? asked Carol, “ for the hunt Canis familiariss ” said the agent. Agent Marvin hands Heather ‘s shirt off to the unit.
Winnie and Dave Anderson are traveling to do an proclamation to the full airdrome about their girl. A female agent explains their scheme to Heather ‘s parents. Winnie makes a tearful invocation:
“ My name is Winnie Anderson, our girl Heather has disappeared since 2 hours, she is merely 7 old ages old, last month she started 1st class, she was really aroused to larn to read and number, we love and we miss her really much. Help us to happen her, she is a fantastic girl. Heather is merely a small miss who deserves to be with her household. ”
Everyone at the airdrome is moved by Winnie ‘s words.
Carol Anderson, James ‘s female parent, insisted that the agent to see her boy but he is in another room with Dempsey who is interrogating him. The agent explained to Carol. Carol ca n’t believe the state of affairs – she explain: I was merely holding a bottle of whisky covering with wrapping paper for my hubby when she heard the proclamation that Heather was losing.
Dempsey brought James to the nutrient tribunal and state James to loosen up and tried to visualize what it sounded like and smelled when he was at the tribunal. “ The people were speaking loud, and I was believing which piece of bar I would wish to hold when I all of a sudden realized that Heather was shouting because it was excessively crowded, and she wanted to go forth. The agent asks if there is anything else he can retrieve, but James says no.
The Canis familiaris had picked up Heather ‘s aroma, and it leaded the agents to a watchband in a rubbish can. It is the watchband Heather was have oning in her image. When Dempsey asks Heather ‘s female parent about it, she says Heather some friend gave it to her at school. The watchband was 24-carat gold, and the jewellery in it was existent, so the agent doubted Heather ‘s narrative. Dempsey asked the parents if he can travel to seek their place for new hints.
Dempsey looked at the watchband and noticed the clasp had broken as if the kidnaper ripped it from Heather ‘s manus pools. Dempsey told to the other agents: “ This was personal ” .
One of the agent asked Winnie: Do you cognize of anyone who could be an bullying to Heather. Another agent asked similar inquiries to Dave Anderson – about any dissensions with neighbours or category couples. Dave Anderson denies Heather could hold known her kidnaper.
At the Anderson ‘ place, Detective Dempsey is worried. He finds that Heather has been wetting her bed. More alarmingly, he found Heather ‘s favourite teddy bear complete broken Dempsey recognized these marks. “ Something has been go oning to Heather. “ I know why. ” He came to the decision that it is likely that Heather was being battered, and it was likely person near in or to the household.
Detective Dempsey went back to the airdrome and started to inquire Albert Anderson about his boy, James. What are the avocations of your boy? “ My boy likes to be on the computing machine. ” Said James ‘s male parent. Detective Dempsey is surprised that Albert does non cognize a batch about his ain boy. Albert said that the he does non hold a good relationship with his boy. He has ever been more close to his niece Heather who he loved to read and play dress-up. Detective Dempsey asked Albert Anderson. “ How many times this wee does James has been with his cousin? ” He wonders if that made Albert covetous. Puting Heather ‘s watchband on the tabular array in forepart of him, he wanted Albert to state him how he knew Heather liked to run at the park, to swim at the pool but he did n’t cognize nil about James.Albert did n’t state anything. Detective Dempsey left the room.
Dempsey took a interruption, he went outside the airdrome to smoke a coffin nail. He started believing and doubting Carol Anderson word ‘s. He started to hold all of a sudden a flashback and he started to recognize that she seemed really relax about all this. He starts to link the pieces.
He went back to the room where Albert is waiting. Dempsey demands him to cognize when he started mistreating her, and inquiring if Carol got excessively old for him. Albert shouts, “ No! “ I would ne’er ache Heather. ” Detective Dempsey looked at him with repulsion. As he left, he started to remembers Carol ‘s married woman ‘s words about holding a bottle of his favourite whiskey covering with wrapping paper for Albert while Heather was losing. He came back and asked Albert how he could hold kept from imbibing during this awfully nerve-racking clip. Albert told him he ne’er drinks intoxicant, he hated it. Another flash of memory went through Dempsey ‘ head: Carol Anderson besides says that she used to work in an airdrome.
Immediately, Dempsey took Carol off from Heather ‘s parents, explicating softly to rest of the squad that Carol knows more than we though. Leading her to a room, Dempsey confronted Carol: she did n’t merely work in an airdrome but she worked at this airdrome and she knows everything about this airdrome ; every shop, every transition, etc.
“ I ne’er thought this would go on ” says Carol. Dempsey ask her “ what did you did with Heather? ” . When Carol continued to deny her engagement, Dempsey pushed Heather ‘s disfigured teddy bear in Carol ‘s face, stating her that this is how Heather saw herself – foul – that is what your hubby made her feel. Finally, Carol collapsed in cryings and confesses that Heather will no longer endure. “ My hubby will no longer see her once more. ” “ Where is she? ” Dempsey asked. But no reply is giving.
The seeking squads were frenetic, traveling through the last of the shop suites. One of the agents opens a cupboard and finds Heather lying on the floor. The other agents started to name an ambulance and they went to advise the parents. The agent persists CPR and other agents and officers leads Carol Anderson off in handlocks. Heather is still unresponsive. A police officer leads Albert Anderson off in handlocks.
Heather Begins coughing, and her bosom begins crushing.
