Garcia leading a victims' support group is a measure to deal with the guilt associated with the death of her parents when she was a teenager, they who were looking for her past curfew late one evening when they were struck by a drunk driver. One of her closest friends in the group, Monica Kingston, just hit the seven year anniversary of the abduction of her then adolescent daughter Hope, who she believes is still alive. After the latest meeting, Garcia, who had just spoken to Monica, finds Monica's car left in the parking lot with the keys in the ignition and her purse on the front seat. Although the police can't act since there is no indication of foul play, Garcia is certain that something bad has happened to Monica. Garcia calls in her friends at the BAU for help. They find images of Monica with an unidentifiable man on a gas station surveillance video, she who seems to be voluntarily going with him. The location of the gas station and another sighting of Monica at her former house - where she lived with Hope - lead the team to believe that the man is the person who abducted Hope. Determining the unsub's current interest in Monica now as opposed to anytime over the past seven years may assist in locating the unsub and hopefully still alive Monica and Hope.
