Chapter 2: Looking For Answers

Olivia's heart was pounding as she and Elliot approached Mrs. Mcguffy in her yard. "Mrs. Mcguffy?" she called. The woman turned. "Oh, Olivia, it's good to see you. It's been awhile." she said. Olivia nodded. "You're right, it has." she agreed. "This is my partner, Detective Stabler. We need your help." "With what?" asked Mrs. Mcguffy. Olivia sighed. "Nancy called the precinct this morning." she answered. "Bella's missing, and we were hoping you could help us find her."

"I haven't seen her since last Thursday. Nancy brought her over that morning. We were having coffee." Mrs. Mcguffy told Olivia. She nodded as she asked, "Do you remember what time that was?" The older woman nodded. "It was around 10:30." she replied. "Did Nancy mention where she was taking Bella?" Elliot asked. Mrs. Mcguffy paused for a moment, then nodded. "She said she was taking her to Mama Mia's Italian Eatery on 5th and Main." she answered. "It sounded a little strange to me, but who am I to question where she takes her own baby? You might go there and see what you can find out."

"Thanks. You've been a big help." Elliot and Olivia said in unison. With that, they headed to Mama Mia's, more than a little afraid of what awaited them.
