While Vanessa and Alice searched in the darkness for the road that would take them to civilization, their father and Kat arrived at Kat’s house. They were trying to get more information about Annette Morris’ family. It was suspected that Annette had something to do with the disappearance of Jack’s two daughters. She appeared to have a grudge against both Jack and Kat and had been acting strange recently.
Kat recalled her mother giving her a folder for each participant in project Truth or Consequences. Until a few days ago, Annette had been a part of the group.
“Here it is,” Kat was holding an envelope with the name Annette Morris on it.
“Do you mind if I take a look at it, Kat? I’ve begun to realize that I know very little about Annette. I’m not even sure what an Art Therapist is. She was the most recent addition to the group, but I will say, she was becoming very effective.
It says here that her father died when she was very young. She was adopted by her mother’s second husband, but her older sister was not. The step-father’s name was Alfred Morris.”
“Wasn’t the older sister raised with Annette?” Kat was trying hard to piece this all together.
“No, she was estranged from her family and lived with an aunt in Seattle, WA.” Other than that, Jennifer isn’t mentioned again in this report.”
“Anything else that stands out to you? We really don’t have much to go on. I hope we’re not wasting our time. Even though Annette lied about her mother’s whereabouts when questioned by the FBI Agents, it doesn’t really confirm any of our suspicions.”
Jack gave the report one last glance and started to hand it back to Kat when something stood out to him. Whatever he saw caused him to look very distressed.
“What is wrong? Kat asked, “You look like you’ve seen a ghost.”
“Not exactly. I’m sure it’s only a coincidence that Jennifer’s last name is the same as my late wife, Jennifer’s maiden name. It couldn’t be that my wife and the mother of my daughters was Annette Morris’ sister.”
Annette decided she should check on her mother and the girls. She was sure the two agents wouldn’t be back tonight. As she was driving to the cabin, it began to snow.
Mrs. Morris, who had fallen asleep in her room at the cabin, was startled awake by a loud noise. She quickly ran to the girls’ bedroom and discovered they were gone.
