As the search for miles

west continues,

hope for finding the young

man alive is decreasing.

In these conditions, the

real dangers are exposure,

hypothermia, and starvation.

In locals new today, Liam

west, the brother who

originally reported miles

west missing, was seen

driving with Lauren Huxley,

the girlfriend of miles.

Miss Huxley is the

daughter of police chief

Huxley, who has said again

that there is no evidence

of foul play in

the disappearance.

I don't know why I treated

you the way I did.

I just want you to

know I love you.

Cause I don't know if

I'm gonna make it back.

Look at this, man.

F*** yeah!

You wanna try to get into this?

Liam! What's up, baby?


Come on, man.

It's a party.

Liam! Liam! Liam!

Six hundred grand.

I warned him.

I said, kid, don't wrap the

line around your fingers.

Six hundred grand.

That's three hundred

grand a finger.

He was a concert pianist.

So they reattached them.

Well, apparently they

don't work so good.

Miles, can you get my...

F*** it, you know?

We're the ones that found

their finger anyway.

If there was any

justice in the world,

- we would've gotten a slice.

- Miles, can you please get my...

Alright, alright.

I'm taking a shower.

Here I go.

My underwear.

They settled the

insurance months ago.

I don't know why he keeps...


Kinda wet.

Mom's bringing her kids today.

I just really don't

wanna be late.

So, how much would I

get if I lost a finger?

What if I lost an arm?

Not the same thing.

You can lose all of your limbs.

The kid's fingers

are worth more.

Remember that dude in Utah?

In the desert?

Got stuck under that rock,

had to chop off his arm.

Dude made a killing.

From selling his

story, not insurance.

Yeah, I'd sell the story.

Right. Man chops off

arm in insurance scam.

It's a great story.

Okay, I'm sorry it

didn't work out.

Go ahead.

Get on the bus.

Who's ready to see some fish?

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!

Wait, wait, wait.

Nah, we're good.

We can make this happen.

We'll have her ready in no time.

Uh, I don't think so.

I'm sorry, mom.

No, I'm sorry.

I'll call you later, okay?

It's my fault.

It's all me.

Notice of possession. Sugar

mountain coastal charters

will remain closed

until further notice.

The port authority.

No, that's a mistake, Liam!

Hey, I'm gonna call the bank.

I'm gonna sort this out.

No, no, what the hell!

Four months late on

your boarding fees.

Insurance is overdue again.

What? No, Warren knows

that we always...

No, it was Warren

that called it in.

He can't carry you kids no more.

Yeah. Well, thank

you very much.


The good news is we have a month

before they try and sell her.

We'll get her back.

We, uh...

We just need cash and fast.

You f***ing knew.


That's why you've

been talking fraud.

Well, see...

I've been thinking

about this for a while.

Mom captained this thing

for twenty-one years and

we lose it in three.

Alright, man, I'm serious.

All we're missing up on

that mountain right there...

Boy, we'd have a

hell of a story.

It's stupid.

Hey, hey, whoa now.

People make money all the

time from being stupid.

I read about this girl who

hid in cupboard for years.

There's this Australian

guy, he got lost in the

Himalayas, survives off a

Mars bar, sells his story

to 60 minutes.

I'm not kidding, man.

This is serious.

I can pretend to go missing

up on that mountain.

Yeah, with no survival skills

and no sense of direction.

You'd get lost and die.

But you would train me.

You'd still get lost and die.

Okay, you'd have to do it.
