Megan sees her daughter Emma everywhere. She's the little girl standing in the supermarket, the child waiting for the swings at the playground, the girl with ice cream dripping down her face. But it's never Emma. Emma's been missing for two years.

Unable to handle the constant heartache of all the false sightings, Megan's husband threatens to walk away unless Megan can agree to accept Emma is gone. Megan's life and marriage is crumbling all around her and she realizes she may have to do the thing she dreads most: move on.

When Megan takes a photo of a little girl with an elderly couple at the town fair, she believes it to be her missing daughter. Unable to let go, she sets in motion a sequence of events that could destroy both families lives.

Finding Emma was a story about every mother's biggest fear, losing a child.  In this story Megan turned her back for a minute and Emma disappeared from the house without a trace. 
Megan becomes obsessed not only with finding Emma but doing anything to help keep other children in the neighborhood safe.  This obsession is putting a strain on her family.  Her daughters are feeling left out and her husband is threatening to leave. 
Eventually, Megan's obsession pays off.  She sees Emma in a picture taken at a town fair.  Is it really her daughter?  Can she find the couple she's with?  Will anyone believe her anymore?
