Determined to survive and outsmart her captor, Carlesha leaves clues behind at every opportunity. Meanwhile, Carlesha’s mother, Keisha (Kenya Moore, Real Housewives of Atlanta) stops at nothing to find her, making an impassioned plea to the media and working alongside a committed detective to rescue her before it’s too late.
