FLASH IN.

 

[EXT. LAS VEGAS CITY (STOCK) - DAY]

 

FLASH TO:

 

[EXT. MESA VALLEY PARK - DAY]

 

(Karen Matthews cleans up her area that was used for a picnic.)

 

(Various cuts of: Children playing at the park.)

 

(Karen Matthews takes a break from cleaning. She stares at the kids playing at the park.)

 

(Karen stands up and walks over to the park. She frantically starts calling for her son.)

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Jesse? Jesse?

 

(Camera begins to spin around Karen Matthews’ body, looking at the children who are playing. Her son isn’t to be seen.)

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Jesse…Jesse, can you hear me? Jesse, please! Jesse!

 

TIME CUT TO:

 

[EXT. MESA VALLEY PARK - DAY]

 

(Brass, Warrick and Grissom approach the park. Brass fills them in.)

 

BRASS: Jesse Matthews, six years old.

 

(Brass hands Grissom a photo.)

 

GRISSOM: Is this an old photo?

 

BRASS: Yeah, it’s the only one the mom had. She said one minute, he’s on the swing, the next minute he’s gone.

 

GRISSOM: Abduction.

 

BRASS: Well, the search radius is over a mile -- no sign of the boy.

 

WARRICK: What about the father?

 

(Brass looks at his notes.)

 

BRASS: The father is um, Army sergeant, uh… Dwight Matthews. Killed in Afghanistan four years ago.

 

GRISSOM: Any other family members? Grandparents? Boyfriends?

 

BRASS: No, her parents are dead and her husband’s parents -- she lost communication with them since he died.

 

(They reach the park, where they find Karen Matthews sitting on a bench.)

 

BRASS: Mrs. Matthews… this is Gil Grissom and Warrick Brown from the Crime Lab.

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: I, uh… I never bring Jesse to the park. But this afternoon, the backyard just couldn’t hold him, so we came here and… uh… he was on the swings; I couldn’t even get him off, and then I look around and he’s gone; he’s just…

 

BRASS: Mrs. Matthews, there’s really nothing more you can do here. Why don’t you let us give you a ride home?

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: I’m not leaving. Not without Jesse.

 

(Karen walks away.)

 

WARRICK: I called the team.

 

(Warrick and Grissom look at the photo.)

 

WARRICK: They always look so vulnerable.

 

GRISSOM: They are.

FADE IN.

 

[EXT. MESA VALLEY PARK - JUNGLE GYM -- DAY]

 

(Sara and Greg process. Greg takes photos and Sara dusts for fingerprints.)

 

GREG: It’s like trying to get an I.D. on swimmers from ripples in the pool. How about you?

 

SARA: Lots of little fingers…and some big ones.

 

GREG: Helping hands?

(Warrick walks by Brass, who is questioning a nanny. A little boy stands beside her.)

 

BRASS: Here ma’am, look at this picture. Do you remember this boy? It’s not a recent photo.

 

NANNY: I had my hands full. I don’t take my eyes off him ever.

 

BRASS: Sure, I understand.

 

NANNY: But there was this man near the swings -- he kept looking around like he was waiting for something.

 

BRASS: What’d he look like?

 

NANNY: He was a white guy, blue baseball cap. That’s all I remember.

 

BRASS: Did he seem interested in one of the kids?

 

NANNY: Yeah. A boy.

 

(The nanny looks at the photo again.)

 

NANNY: Could be that boy. Mm… it’s hard to tell.

 

BRASS: Okay… Thank you. Thank you very much.

 

(The nanny and the little boy walk away. Brass turns around and walks over to Karen Matthews, who is talking with a police officer.)

 

BRASS: Mrs. Matthews… I know this is difficult for you, but I have to ask you again -- do you remember seeing anyone hanging around the swings? Anyone. Maybe, maybe a man in a blue baseball cap?

 

(Quick flashback to: [SWINGS] A man with a blue baseball cap stares at Jesse.)

 

(End of flash. Resume to present.)

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Yes.

 

BRASS: Can you describe him?

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: He was white…

 

BRASS: Alright.

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Just under six feet, I think.

 

BRASS: Six feet. Great.

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Jeans.

 

(Quick flashback to: [SWINGS] The man with a blue baseball cap walks towards the swings. A white flash occurs and Jesse suddenly disappears from the swings.)

[EXT. MESA VALLEY PARK - DAY -- CONTINUOUS]

 

(A K-9 unit arrives. Grissom waits with Karen Matthews by the edge of the curb.)

 

GRISSOM: Our K-9 officers are going to need something that Jesse’s worn recently.

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Uh… his jacket. It’s in the car. I’ll get it for you.

 

(Karen Matthews walks away.)

 

SHORT TIME CUT TO:

 

(The K-9 officers give the dogs a smell of Jesse’s jacket. They begin to walk away.)

 

(Grissom and Karen Matthews watch the officers and dogs search.)

 

(The dogs and officers go around the park and back to where Karen Matthews and Grissom stand.)

 

(The dogs jump on Karen Matthews.)

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Whoa, whoa, whoa! What are they doing?

GRISSOM: Pull the dogs back, please.

 

(The K-9 officers instruct the dogs to go back.)

 

GRISSOM: Can I see this jacket?

 

(The K-9 officer hands Grissom the jacket.)

 

(Grissom unfolds the jacket.)

 

GRISSOM: Has Jesse ever worn this?

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: I just bought it for him. He’s been growing so fast. I’m sorry, I…

 

GRISSOM: That’s okay; we’ll get something from your house.

[INT. MESA VALLEY PARK - BATHROOMS -- DAY --- CONTINUOUS]

 

(Warrick walks around the bathroom with his flashlight.)

 

(He sees tiny blood drops on the floor. He follows them into the bathroom stall.)

 

(Inside the stall is a piece of toilet dispenser laying on the ground. It’s bloodied.)

 

(Warrick photographs.)

 

(Grissom walks in.)

 

WARRICK: What do you make of this? Possible struggle… That could’ve been used as a weapon. The blood drops could be castoff.

 

(Warrick looks closer and finds a pair of white underwear on the floor. He picks it up.)

 

WARRICK: Maybe the poor kid had to pee while his mom was in the car.

 

 

(Quick flashback to: [BATHROOM STALL] Jesse Matthews walks into the bathroom stall. He begins to urinate while a man comes from behind and picks him up. Jesse screams.)

 

(End of flash. Resume to present.)

KAREN MATTHEWS: Oh my God.

CATHERINE: Mrs. Matthews inside?

 

BRASS: Yeah. Every mother’s worst nightmare.

 

(Catherine glances at the house.)

 

BRASS: I checked her answering machine: no calls.

 

CATHERINE: Well, I’ll get a DNA exemplar for Jesse and let her get some sleep.

 

 

BRASS: She won’t sleep. (to Greg) Okay, Greg, let’s do a little legwork, what do you say? You take this side of the street; I’ll take the other -- find out if anybody’s seen anything suspicious.

 

SHORT TIME CUT TO:

 

[INT. MATTHEWS RESIDENCE - FRONT DOOR -- NIGHT --- CONTINUOUS]

 

(Catherine walks into the out-of-place house. The floors are trashed with toys and other child-like objects.)

CATHERINE: (shouting) Mrs. Matthews?

 

(Catherine walks down the hall and finds Karen Matthews in another room.)

 

[INT. ROOM]

 

CATHERINE: Mrs. Matthews? I’m Catherine Willows from the Crime Lab.

 

(Karen begins to clean up.)

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Sorry about the mess.

 

CATHERINE: It’s okay.

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Jesse was so full of energy this morning. He didn’t give me time to clean up.

 

CATHERINE: I understand. (Catherine shows Karen the photo) This photo… is it recent?

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Uh, yeah, that’s, uh, that’s from last month.

 

CATHERINE: If it’s all right with you, I’d like to borrow it. I’ll get it to Nevada Child Search, and they can get it out to the media.

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Sure.

 

CATHERINE: Thank you.

 

(Catherine looks around the walls and finds drawings and pictures.)

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Jesse’s home-schooled. We do art together… music… Everything.

 

(Catherine looks at another wall and finds a growth-chart.)

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Do you have children?

 

CATHERINE: I have a daughter. Thirteen. “Thirty-six and a half inches.” I’ll add that to the physical description. And Mrs. Matthews, our K-9 unit will need something with Jesse’s scent.

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Oh, right, right. Um… maybe… maybe… his stuffed dinosaur? He holds it while he’s sleeping.

 

CATHERINE: That’ll work. And I will need something with his DNA: a toothbrush, hairbrush, pillowcase…

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Why do you need that?

 

CATHERINE: Well, if we locate anything that could lead us to him, we want to make sure we’ve got the right boy.

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Well, I’ll get those things for you.

 

(Karen Matthews walks away.)

 

CUT TO:

 

[INT. MATTHEWS RESIDENCE - GARAGE -- NIGHT --- CONTINUOUS]

 

(Catherine walks out into the garage. A car pulls into the garage. A police officer steps out of the car.)

 

CATHERINE: Hi.

 

OFFICER: Hi. Captain Brass asked me to drive the lady’s car home.

 

CATHERINE: Oh…okay. Yeah, I’ll let her know.

 

OFFICER: Thanks.

 

CATHERINE: Mm-hmm.

 

(The officer walks away.)

 

(Catherine looks around and finds a shelf containing a lot of un-opened presents. One of the gifts read:

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

JESSE!

      

LOVE,

GRANDMA & GRANDPA)

 

[EXT. MCCRACKEN RESIDENCE - NIGHT -- CONTINUOUS]

 

(Greg speaks with neighbor Ken McCracken. In his hands is a dog.)

 

KEN MCCRACKEN: Since her husband died, kid’s toys always laying around. I’m always tossing balls over my fence into her yard. They keep to themselves, which is fine by me.

 

GREG: Sir, have you seen any suspicious cars in the neighborhood, or strangers?

 

KEN MCCRACKEN: I work all day and I don’t spend my nights looking at the neighbors, okay?

 

GREG: Well, what about the weekends?

 

(The dogs begins to growl at Greg.)

 

GREG: Aggressive little pooch.

 

KEN MCCRACKEN: (sweet voice) Oh, she’s my sweetie.

 

(Ken begins to rub the dog.)

 

KEN MCCRACKEN: (to dog) Who’s my good girl? Queenie’s my good girl. Yes, you are. Yes, you are. (to Greg) Interesting how things work out.

 

GREG: What do you mean?

 

KEN MCCRACKEN: Her kid getting killed. This is Queenie. My last dog, Princess… Princess died, and she did it.

 

GREG: Karen Matthews?

 

KEN MCCRACKEN: Four years ago. I found Princess hanging off the back fence. Supposed to look like it was an accident, like she got caught on her collar and choked.

 

GREG: Did you see her do this?

 

KEN MCCRACKEN: No, but I knew. See, Princess used to bark through the fence at her kid. She just wanted to play. If you ask me, you know what? The kid liked it, but Karen she just went off the deep end.

 

GREG: Mr. McCracken, who told you her son was killed?

(Catherine walks over to a desk, where toys of dinosaurs occupy the shelves.)

 

(Catherine looks down at a shelf, and finds a hamster cage containing two hamsters.)

 

(Karen Matthews walks in.)

 

CATHERINE: Who takes care of the hamsters?

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Jesse. When he remembers. Which is about as often as he remembers to brush his teeth.

 

(Catherine opens up an evidence bag. Karen Matthews places a toothbrush in it.)

 

CATHERINE: Mrs. Matthews, has Jesse ever run away from home?

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: Uh, he’d never do that.

 

(Mrs. Matthews walks over to Jesse’s bed and picks up a green dinosaur.)

 

CATHERINE: Was he upset about anything?

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: No. No. No. You’re going to find him. If something happened, I’d know.

 

(Catherine looks at the dinosaur.)

 

(Karen Matthews points to her upper body.)

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: I’d know here.

 

CATHERINE: Of course. I’d feel the same.

 

(Karen begins to make Jesse’s bed.)

 

CATHERINE: Mrs. Matthews, when the officer brought your car back, I noticed that there were gifts in the garage that were from your husband’s parents.

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: The, um… the colonel and his wife. We’re, uh, we’re not in touch anymore. Dwight was… ever since Dwight died, my father-in-law thinks he should be raising Jesse, not me. He runs that house like an Army’s barracks. Do you know what that does to a boy? Well, I saw what it did to Dwight, and I will not let him do that to Jesse.

 

CATHERINE: I’m still going to need some contact information.

KAREN MATTHEWS: They took him.

 

FADE OUT.

FAYE MATTHEWS: (to Colonel Matthews) Warren, not today.

KAREN MATTHEWS: I will raise my own son -- not you.

 

(Karen and Jesse walk away.)

 

(End of flash. Resume to present.)

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: Jesse comes from a, from a long line of military men going all the way back to Bull Run. (to Brass) Were you in the service?

 

BRASS: Yes, sire. Marine Corps.

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: I bet your dad was, too, right?

 

BRASS: You know, we’re here to talk about your family, not mine.

 

FAYE MATTHEWS: If we hadn’t seen Jesse’s picture last night on TV, we wouldn’t know what he looked like now.

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: She blames me.

 

FAYE MATTHEWS: I do not.

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: Don’t tell me what I know and don’t know, all right?

 

FAYE MATTHEWS: (to Brass) Can I please just go to the bathroom?

 

BRASS: Oh, absolutely. Sure. Absolutely.

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: (to Brass) Where is it?

 

BRASS: (smiling) Its, uh… down the hall, to the right, through the door.

 

(Faye Matthews leaves the room.)

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: (to Brass) This is just between you and me. I saw Karen last week.

 

(Quick flashback to: [EXT. MATTHEWS RESIDENCE - NIGHT] Warren Matthews knocks on the door. Karen opens the door.)

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: Oh, hi, Karen, uh, could I see Jesse please?

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: No.

 

(Karen Matthews tries to close the door. The Colonel tries to keep it open.)

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: Karen, he’s my only grandson.

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: You can’t have him. Okay?

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: I don’t want to keep him, Karen.

 

(Colonel Matthews shows Karen some army tags.)

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: I just want to give him these. Please.

BRASS: Colonel?

 

(The Colonel looks around.)

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: Where’s my wife?

 

BRASS: She’s in the ladies’ room. It’s okay. Do you get these, uh… these spells often? There’s some memory loss?

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: It’s early Alzheimer’s.

 

BRASS: That’s a tough one.

 

COLONEL WARREN MATTHEWS: All I wanted is to see my grandson. Find him for me.

 

BRASS: We’ll do our best, sir. We’ll do our very best.

CUT TO:

 

[INT. CSI - HALLWAY -- DAY]

 

(Sara and Warrick walk down the hall. They share their findings.)

 

WARRICK: Any luck with those prints from the swing?

 

SARA: Nothing on AFIS, but Brass did put on a search bulletin for the guy in the blue baseball cap.

 

WARRICK: I wouldn’t get our hopes up -- it’s a vague description.

 

SARA: What about the K-9 search?

 

(The two stop at a door.)

 

WARRICK: Nothing.

 

(Sara walks down the other hall as Warrick enters the DNA lab.)

 

[INT. CSI - DNA LAB -- DAY]

 

(Wendy Simms shares her findings.)

 

WARRICK: What do you got for me?

 

WENDY SIMMS: Well, I ran the exemplar toothbrush against the blood sample from the men’s room. It’s not a match.

 

(Wendy begins to walk back-and-forth.)

 

WARRICK: What about the underpants?

 

WENDY SIMMS: Couldn’t get enough epithelials for DNA ’cause the kid probably hadn’t been wearing them very long.

 

WARRICK: I wonder why.

 

WENDY SIMMS: Well, I did confirm  a positive result for urea in the underpants. And the quantity and distribution suggests that the kid wet himself.

 

WARRICK: Ditched his wet tighty-whiteys and went back out to play.

 

(Wendy pulls up a result on the computer.)

 

WENDY SIMMS: I got a hit on your blood. (reading computer screen) Conner Daly. Convicted of NRS 201.450. Out on parole.

 

(The computer screen shows a picture and information about the crimes he has committed.)

 

WARRICK: What’s a 450?

 

WENDY SIMMS: That’d be sex with a dead body.

 

CUT TO:

 

[INT. LVPD - INTERROGATION ROOM -- DAY]

 

(Conner Daly sits, handcuffed. Warrick questions him.)

 

WARRICK: Mr. Daly, where were you yesterday afternoon?

CONNER DALY: Playing nickel slots downtown. I, uh… I’m not trying to win the big jackpot or anything, just passing time. It relaxes me.

 

(Warrick looks at Conner’s case folder.)

 

WARRICK: Where did you go next?

 

CONNER DALY: Walked in the park. Fresh air. I’m allergic to smoke.

 

WARRICK: Which park?

 

CONNER DALY: One near my apartment.

 

(Warrick walks towards Conner.)

 

WARRICK: Would that be Mesa Valley park?

 

CONNER DALY: Yeah. Then I sat down on a park bench and read a copy of the RJ that I picked up out of the trash. What’s this about?

 

WARRICK: Did you go to the men’s room at any time?

 

CONNER DALY: Only when nature called.

 

WARRICK: What did you do there?

 

CONNER DALY: I amused myself.

 

WARRICK: What did you do next? We found your blood on the floor.

 

CONNER DALY: I get nosebleeds. Uh… too much cocaine back in the day.

 

(Warrick begins to write something down in the case folder.)

 

WARRICK: I’m sure we’ll find that in your medical records.

 

(Conner slowly stands up. He walks towards Warrick. We note that he is angry.)

 

(He gets in Warrick face.)

 

CONNER DALY: (seething) My whole dam life is on record. So, why don’t you look at the freakin’ records, huh?

 

WARRICK: You have anger issues, Mr. Daly?

 

(An officer walks towards Warrick. He signals the officer to stay put.)

 

CONNER DALY: Yeah.

 

WARRICK: Would you take a seat for me, please?

 

(Daly slowly steps back to his seat. He sits.)

 

(Warrick notices a cut on Daly’s hand.)

 

WARRICK: What’s that cut on your hand from? Pick the wrong partner?

 

CONNER DALY: No.

 

(Quick flashback to: [INT. MESA VALLEY PARK - BATHROOMS -- DAY] Conner Daly walks into a stall. He has a tissue up against his nose, trying to prevent bleeding. He attempts to grab some more tissue from the stall, but cuts himself.)

 

(End of flash. Resume to present.)

 

CONNER DALY: Look, I’ll send the country a buck 50. They can buy a new one.

 

(Warrick shows Conner a photo of Jesse Matthews.)

 

WARRICK: You recognize this boy?

 

CONNER DALY: Looks like a kid that this guy brought into the bathroom but I didn’t stay to watch.

 

WARRICK: Did you get a look at the guy?

 

CONNER DALY: “51s” fan.

 

(Warrick shares a look with Daly.)

 

CONNER DALY: His cap.

[INT. CSI - BREAKROOM]

 

[TV]

 

(Paula Francis, a newscaster, is broadcasting details on Jesse Matthews’ disappearance.)

 

PAULA FRANCIS: (on TV) Las Vegas police may have a break in the case of a missing boy.

 

PAULA FRANCIS: (on TV) An eyewitness has come forward with a more complete description of the suspect. Authorities are now seeking this man in connection with the disappearance yesterday of six-year-old Jesse Matthews.

 

(The monitor shows a hand-drawn sketch of the man with the blue hat.)

 

(Camera pulls back and we see Grissom watching the TV.)

 

PAULA FRANCIS: (o.s.) Initial reports from the scene only mention a man in a blue cap, but the police artist had a lot more to work with after the witness came forward.

 

(The TV monitor changes to a video with Karen Matthews being interviewed.)

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: (on TV) Uh, uh… I’m ju… I’m just trying to stay positive.

 

(Grissom continues to stare at the TV.)

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: (on TV) And um, you know, I know that Jesse’ll be safe at home soon. So.

 

(A reporter asks Karen a question.)

 

KAREN MATTHEWS: I know he’ll be safe.

 

(Paula Francis appears on the monitor again.)

 

PAULA FRANCIS: (on TV) The boy’s mother, Karen, is holding out hope that she’ll see her son again. She’s seen tragedy enough. Four years ago, she lost her husband in combat in Afghanistan.
