When Elaine Park, a twenty-year-old college student with roles as an extra on ER and Crazy Stupid Love, disappeared in host Neil Strauss’s neighborhood of Malibu, California, he decided to use his experience as a reporter to help. Forming an unlikely team of investigators with his wife and concerned neighbors, they used all their resources to raise a reward, spread awareness, and ultimately investigate the parties that many believe were responsible.
