WITHOUT A TRACE is a riveting drama about the New York Missing Persons
Squad of the FBI. The sole responsibility of the special task force is to find
missing persons, by applying advanced psychological profiling techniques
to peel back the layers of the victims' lives and trace their whereabouts in
an effort to discover whether they have been abducted, been murdered,
committed suicide or simply run away. The team reconstructs a
"day of disappearance" timeline that details every minute of the 24 hours
prior to the disappearance and digs into every facet of the victim's life,
following one simple rule: learn who the victim is in order to learn where
the victim is.
Senior agent Jack Malone (Anthony LaPaglia), a tough but
compassionate, seasoned and astute professional, heads the dedicated
team that knows too well that every second counts when someone vanishes.
His squad includes Samantha Spade (Poppy Montgomery), an agent whose
blonde good looks belie a tough, complex approach to her work; Vivian
Johnson (Marianne Jean-Baptiste), a no-nonsense investigator with a
special insight into victims' families; Danny Taylor (Enrique Murciano),
whose sensitivity is often covered up by his street smarts; the driven Martin
Fitzgerald (Eric Close), whose recent brush with prescription drug addiction
revealed a darker side of his straight-laced persona; and the team's newest
member, Elena Delgado (Roselyn Sanchez), a resourceful agent who
previously worked in the N.Y.P.D.'s Vice unit.
As the team work on varied and complicated cases, details about their own
lives continue to unfold.
