Director Statement

There's nothing more terrifying as a parent than having a missing child. I know, because for a brief time, my daughter was missing. As I wrote this story, I realized that the parents, Ryan and Claire, were both me, my thoughts, as I wrestled with the fear of what could be versus clinging to hope. I recall various stages of grief, (and hopefully conveyed that). Nothing makes the situation more real than saying aloud to the police, "I have a missing child." Nothing makes your knees weaker; your heart beat faster. It's my hope that STOLEN brings awareness that there are parents out there that still have no answers, and are still searching.
