WITHOUT A TRACE (article first published : 2003-10-24)

Starting on M-Net on October 24 at 19h00 is Without a Trace. From powerhouse executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Black Hawk Down) the series offers a fascinating glimpse into a rarely-seen arena: the search for people who vanish inexplicably.

These disappearances mostly come after the murder or a robbery was committed and is vital for this high-profiled squad to get into the mind of the perpetrator. But when the victim unaccountably disappears, the job becomes much more challenging. It requires deconstructing the persona of the missing. That's where the work of the brilliant, New York-based FBI Missing Persons Squad begins.

This special task force, headed by dedicated senior agent Jack Malone (Anthony LaPaglia), hunts for missing persons by applying advanced psychological profiling. Malone's team consists of tough and beautiful Samantha Spade (Poppy Montgomery), no-nonsense Vivian Johnson (Marianne Jean-Baptiste); intense and private Danny Taylor (Enrique Murciano) and inexperienced new member Martin Fitzgerald (Eric Close).

They peel back the layers of the victims' lives to trace their whereabouts and discover whether they've been abducted murdered or committed suicide. They reconstruct a Day Of Disappearance timeline that details every minute of the 24 hours prior to the victim's disappearance, following one simple rule: learn who the victim is in order to learn where the victim is.
