Tom Moore (guest star John Benjamin Hickey) arrives home from a business trip to find his young son, Nicky (guest star Duncan Nicholson), missing from his bed. With a history of behavioral problems, the cops suspect he wandered off alone, and the search becomes more urgent as the diabetic boy's insulin pump runs out. But the investigation leads to something more dangerous when a criminal couple (guest stars Rosanna Arquette and Mark Boone Junior), known for child endangerment and pornography, is spotted with Nicky. With a child's life on the line, the cops try to turn one suspect against the other before it's too late. Meanwhile, a personal issue derails Sergeant Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) current course.

Did You Know?


While searching for an abducted child, Fin recognizes a suspect's address (1 East 161st Street in the Bronx) as Yankee Stadium. This is likely a reference to The Blues Brothers (1980), in which Elwood Blues listed his address on his driver's license renewal as 1060 West Addison Street, the address of Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs.

Olivia Benson: [to Dr. Lindstrom] I can handle the job. It's just I wasn't prepared for the caretaking. I mean, everybody needs my attention. If I focus on one, then the other acts out.

Heartbreaking episode
13 July 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The SVU squad in this one has a real heartbreaking case here of an adopted child abandoned by his mother when she goes through a breakdown crisis.

Father John Benjamin Hickey's job keeps him traveling and his wife Jodie Markell just loses it. Little Duncan Nicholson is a hyperactive kid who is also diabetic and the squad races against time to find him.

What a pair of low lives husband and wife Mark Boone, Jr. and Rosanna Arquette are. These are the two Markell just gave her kid to.

This episode rates high because of the separate interrogation scenes the squad has with Boone and Arquette. Fine acting with these two playing some stomach turning characters.

Best of all is Mariska Hargitay with Markell at the end. Her regret is that there are no good alternatives here.
