The moment Chrissy turns the photo over and examines it, she has a vision of a cabin deep in the forest, and sees Cassie and an unidentified man entering it. After the vision ends, a confused Chrissy starts to wonder if Kevin could be right about her being a psychic.
While Chrissy was up in the attic, Kevin stayed downstairs to distract the rest of the family to give Chrissy time to search.

He than reveals to Anna that after Cassie went missing, Adam tried to commit suicide over his loss of a football scholoarship, due to injuries. Anna, who is shocked, turns to Adam and asks why he never told her. Adam defends himself by saying it was way before he met her and that Cassie was more than likely dead. Kevin goes on to accuse Adam of having no faith. Adam replies, by saying that they live in real life and not fantasies where people can be brought back to life like in comic books. Upset with the family, Kevin runs out of the house with tears in his eyes. Chrissy yells out to Kevin and starts to run after him.
Chrissy who was out of breathe from running after Kevin, spotted him sitting on one of the park benches. She than goes over and quietly sits next to him. When Chrissy asks if he is ok, she is shocked to see that Kevin has been crying. Chrissy tries to comfort him, but to no avail. During their talk, Kevin reveals that when Cassie was a sophmore in high school, their mother was diagnosed with cancer. Since there was no one to help Cynthia around the house, Cassie decided to drop out of high school to help her mother. Kevin goes on to say that Cynthia never appreciated anything Cassie did for her, and often criticized her for dropping out of school, but according to Kevin, Cassie didn't mind and always kept a smile on her face. Chrissy realizes that something else is bothering, and when she questions him about it, Kevin says that he is a horrible brother much to her shock. Chrissy wonders why he thinks such a thing, since he was a wonderful big brother. Kevin than reveals to Chrissy he wasn't a wonderful brother to Cassie. Kevin than goes on to explain that as children, him and Cassie were close and he would always defend her from their parents. He goes on to say that as they grew older, he grew annoyed with Cassie because of how clingy she was to him, and so he began to ignore her as well.

At that Statment Cynthia yells at Cassie saying how she regrets giving birth to her and than slaps her right across the face so hard that it causes Cassie to fall. Cassie than looks up to Kevin for help, but while he pities her he just looks away and goes back to his video camera. Cassie who was crying, quickly got up and ran out of the house.
The scene goes back to the present, where Kevin is telling Chrissy that was the last time he ever saw Cassie. After hearing the story, Chrissy herself had tears welling up in her eyes. Kevin says that if he had done something to have helped her, than Cassie would still be here. Chrissy turns Kevin towards her, so she can look at him and tells him not to blame himself. Kevin by this point was crying and just keeps sayin how it's his fault and that he just wants to see her again and apologize. Kevin than falls into Chrissy's arms letting her comfort him.
The scene than shifts to two days later, where Kevin and Chrissy are walking into a deep forest. Kevin suddenly stops and questions Chrissy on why they are there. Chrissy explains to Kevin that she had a vision once she saw the picture of Cassie. Kevin than teases Chrissy about her not believing she was a psychic. Chrissy tells Kevin it's all starting to be too much of a coincidence after the vision she had. She goes on to explain that in her vision she saw Cassie walking through the forest with a man she couldn't recognize and they entered into a small cabin near the river. Chrissy than asks Kevin if Cassie had a boyfriend, to which he says he doesn't know because Cassie was always secretive about where she went. Chrissy believes if they go look at the cabin than they might find some clues, something that Kevin eagerly agrees to.
Kevin and Chrissy journey deep into the woods until they finally found the old abandoned cabin that was slowly falling apart. When they entered the cabin they were shocked at the state of the inside. There was furniture turned upside down and claw marks all over the walls. Chrissy states it looked like an animal attacked the place. As they searched through the cabin, Chrissy discovers a pillow with dried blood on it and points this out to Kevin. She than shows him the green pendant she found near the pillow to which she says is the same one that Cassie is wearing in the photo. Chrissy than hands Kevin the picture and the pendant to study. Kevin than realizes that Cassie was indeed at the cabin, and that the blood somehow traced back to her. Chrissy pulls Kevin out of his thoughts by saying how the place looked torn up by a wild animal, but there was little blood and no sign of any bodies. Kevin and Chrissy fell into silence trying to comphrend all that they have discovered. Kevin than asks Chrissy to use her powers to see what happened, but Chrissy says she can't since she has no control over when her vision appear. After hearingth is, Kevin states that Giselle is the only one that can help them now. When Chrissy questions who she is, Kevin explains that she was in the same grade as Cassie and had a reputation throughout school for being a freak because of her accurate predictions. Chrissy questions if she'll be able to help them, but Kevin says it's their best shot.
When they arrive at Madame Giselle's Chrissy questions if this is actually the place because of how run down the place looks. Kevin reassures it is the place because of the sign on the building. Suddenly the front door slowly opened. Kevin was amazed, while Chrissy was creeped out by this. The two of them soon entered the store and were shocked by how messy the inside was. Chirssy starts to wonder when the last time she cleaned the place. As she said that Giselle comes out of nowhere and says it's meant to spook her guests a little. Giselle than replied to Chrissy's unspoken question, that she was indeed Madame Giselle and that she knows who the two of them are. Kevin is impressed with Giselle's abilities, but Chrissy believes that she knew them because of high school since high school wasn't very big. Before Chrissy has the chance to tell Giselle why they were there, Giselle stated she knew that they wanted her to ues her abilities to look for their sister Cassie. Giselle says she will help, but first she must do a reading on Kevin and Chrissy. When questioned why by Chrissy, Giselle explains that since Kevin knows her the best and that Chrissy is a psychic she might get a clearer picture.
Giselle leads Kevin and Chrissy behind a curtain where there was a table and a few seats. Giselle does Kevin's reading first, and learns that he hold a tremendous amount of guilt over his sister's disapperance. She also learns that Cassie was a very kind and compassionate young lady. Giselle than does Chrissy, where she learns that her powers are not only starting to develop, but she can also see the spirits of the dead. Giselle than states she might be able to help open Chrissy's abilities to their full potential. Chrissy asks how, and Giselle asks her if she has something that belongs to her sister as she can only find someone if she has something of theirs. Kevin than takes out the green pendant that belong to Cassie and her picture. Giselle places the items in the middle of the table, and tells Chrissy to put her hands in hers and close her eyes telling her that might speed up her powers developing by allowing her to see a vision with Giselle who is more experienced. Chrissy does what she is told and she soon finds herself seeing Cassie and the man from here earlier vision in the cabin making out on a couch. Soon the man is on top of Cassie and looks into her eyes and says something inaudiable. Cassie than sucks on the man's wrist and than the men put his mouth on Cassie's neck and Cassie suddenly screamed in pain. It than shows Cassie being all alone in the cabin and breaking most of the furniture.
After the vision ends Chrissy opens her eyes in shock. Kevin questions her on what she saw, but Chrissy herself wasn't al too sure. She tells him about the vision, and how it was Cassie that destroyed the cabin. Chrissy turns to Giselle confused on why they couldn't see or hear more. Giselle says it's because they need physical contact with Cassie herself in order to see more. Kevin than points out that Cassie could still be alive since they didn't see her being killed. Giselle and Chrissy agrees to try again to see if they can get a gliimpse of her in the present time.
The two of them join their hands once again and close their eyes. They see a vision of Cassie hanging out with a group of teenagers that neither recognize. What truely stunned them though, was the fact that Cassie hasn't aged in over 20 years.
When the vision ended, Kevin asks eagerly where their sister is. Chrissy still in shock tells Kevin that in all the years that she has been missing, she hasn't aged a single day. This information leaves Kevin completley speechless. Giselle than mumurs vampire under her breathe.
