Guy, the dog's barking.


The dog's barking.

Honey, he'll be quiet

in a minute.

[Dog barking continues]


Trotsky, come here.


Where are you, Trotsky?

Kimberly Dykstra

was found missing by her parents

early Sunday morning.

Although the back door

was discovered open,

there were no signs

of forced entry.

Police have questioned

Kimberly's parents

and ruled them out as suspects.

[Crowd chatter]

Quiet, please.

Please, quiet.

Can I have your attention please?

The investigation is underway,

and we are following

all possible leads.

If anyone knows anything,

get in touch with us, please.

We haven't been able to sleep and...

We just want to say, um,

we love you, sweetheart.

Still no breaks

in the case of Kimberly Dykstra

who disappeared from

her parents' home five days ago.

Neighbors and even strangers

have joined police in the search...

Police have verified

that the body found last night

is, in fact, ten-year-old

Kimberly Dykstra,

who disappeared without a trace

nine days ago.

The body was found

by two volunteers...

I can't really say anything

about the condition of the body

or what the autopsy revealed,

but Kimberly's parents did have

a statement they'd like me to read.


We would like

to express our gratitude

to all who've supported us

during this most difficult time.

Your prayers and heartfelt wishes

have meant more to us

than words can say.


Just, it's just an anesthetic.

How am I supposed to put

the sutures in without an anesthetic?

She doesn't like needles, man.

And she doesn't speak English.

I figured that out for myself.

You sure she fell?

Sure a tree didn't hit her?

She fell, all right. Look at her.

She ain't got no balance...

Well, just do me a favor

and translate.

Tell her it's only gonna hurt

for just a second,

and then she's not

gonna feel anything,

and we can patch her right up,

and she can go home.

Would you just tell her that, please?

[Speaks Spanish]

Tranquila. Okay?


It's 8:27

on this lovely Tuesday morning,

so let's check in for a traffic report

with Officer Don.

Hi, Don.


Good morning.

It's presently smooth on the 110 north

and the 134 west.

The 405 north is backed up

as usual at this hour,

and that also goes for the 10,

and there's a major pile up

blocking all lanes of traffic

on the 110 north

near the Marmyan Way exit,

so all you Pasadena bound drivers

might want to consider a detour.

Hey, Laura.

Laura, pick up the phone, honey.

I think I've found something

you're just gonna love.

It was owned by the same person

for almost 40 years, a widow.

Her son put her in a nursing home.

As you can see,

she took really good care of it,

even kept the original furnishings.

Now, I certainly don't think

you'll have to renovate

unless you want to, of course.

Now, my house,

we live in an old place, too.

When we moved in,

my husband wanted to change it,

I said, "Barry, no."

A place this beautiful,

it's like painting a mustache

on the Mona Lisa.


Now, I hate to be forward, but you

two are such a handsome couple.

Are you Italian, by any chance?

Uh, no, sorry.

Well, I am.

I moved to California

to be an actress,

but then I met my husband,

he's a doctor, you know.

Oh, so is Guy.

Yeah, you mentioned that.

Maybe that's why

you look so familiar.

My husband's a plastic surgeon,

does all the big celebrities.

Tina Hunt, the newscaster.
