I'm sorry we didn't

carve pumpkins together.

It's okay.

I know you got a

lot of work to do.

No, it's not okay.

I promised I'd be there,

and promises dads make to

their sons are special things.

You know you're

the most important

person in the

world to me, right?

Yeah.

Let's get some ice cream!

I really need you

to stay close to me,

and I need you to look

where you're going, okay?

Let me, let me take that.

Swirled cone with

rainbow sprinkles.

My son was wearing this hat!

Officer, Officer,

this is my son's hat.

He's missing!

When did you see him last?

He was right here by

the ice cream truck,

he was right next to me.

Have you tried calling him?

He's seven years old,

he doesn't have a phone.

Sir, do you live around here?

Maybe he just went home.

Any reason why Charlie

Okay.

We've issued an Amber Alert,

sent Charlie's stats

Every cop in Arizona'll

look out for him.

Usually these cases are

solved within 24 hours.

So, try and sit tight.

Go home to your wife,

we'll be in touch.

Good night.

Good night, sir.
