Many here at MS know the story of Johnny Gosch. It was 30 years ago on September 5 that 12-year-old Johnny was abducted from Des Moines, Iowa.

I just happen to come across a notice that MSNBC is preparing a documentary on the subject, and thought others at MS might want a head's up.

The air date is scheduled for December 16 at 9 pm eastern.

Below is the link and the description from the website.


MSNBC’s dynamic news documentary series Maximum Drama continues to present thought-provoking stories with the premiere of “Missing Johnny,” an examination of the infamous thirty-year-old cold case of missing child Johnny Gosch –the first missing child to appear on a milk carton- on Sunday, December 16th at 9 pm ET. “Missing Johnny” focuses on the heartbreaking story of Johnny’s mother, Noreen Gosch, and her relentless quest to find the truth about her missing son.

“Missing Johnny,” chronicles the endless intrigue and conspiracy theories surrounding the eyewitness sightings, physical evidence and case-turning discoveries which span across three decades. The documentary intertwines original interviews of all the main characters with archival news footage, home video and film material spanning 30 years. Interviews include the last adult to see Johnny, the West Des Moines police captain and a convicted child molester who says he took part in Johnny’s abduction.

The Maximum Drama series takes viewers to the places that are usually considered off limits and out of bounds. The season includes fascinating stories such as an investigation into the human trafficking industry in “Sex Slaves: Chicago,” as well as the premiere of “Ted Bundy’s Death Row Tapes.”
I'll be just fine and dandy
Lord, it's like a hard candy Christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But I won't let sorrow get me way down.
