Plot Synopsis

Hosted and executive produced by John Walsh, IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH is a one-hour docuseries that takes the audience on a journey through the eyes of family members, friends and authorities who are desperate for resolution, detailing two fugitives and two missing children each hour. Every week, John and his son, Callahan Walsh, dissect each unique story from top to bottom, sharing current interviews with surviving family members and friends, chasing down new clues and reviewing the evidence in each case. Callahan leads the operation on the ground, working in tandem with the community and local authorities to search for persons-of-interest. In partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), the series also feature age-progression photos and descriptions in the hopes that viewers can provide new leads to their whereabouts.

The audience can help track down these persons of interest by contacting an active call center and dedicated online hub staffed by trained operators, who accept anonymous tips and alert the proper authorities.
