Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In this most recent spin on a familiar suspense-movie plot device, the 6-year-old son of wealthy Seattle industrialist Dan Carlin (Stephen Elliott) is kidnapped by a disgruntled ex-employee. Innocently unaware of his plight, the captive boy is locked in a room with his toy teddy bear, which has been booby-trapped with a time bomb. Tension mounts when the kidnapper is accidentally killed, leaving Carlin and a dedicated police detective (Karen Sillas) with less than 24 hours to locate both boy and bomb. As Time Runs Out made its CBS network debut on October 5, 1999.
