A foster couple call Detectives Benson and Stabler to the scene of the crime when their ten-year-old adopted daughter disappears. It soon comes to light that she ran away to meet with a man named Erik Weber, whom she met on the internet and whom Benson and Stabler suspect of ulterior motives regarding the girl.
