‘In Pursuit’ Of Dirtbags: The Walsh Team Ask Viewers For Help Ahead of Season 3 Premiere

In Pursuit with John Walsh is coming back on Discovery. According to Walsh, “dirtbags” and those who commit crimes and cause havoc in good people’s lives are on notice. Especially the ones who kidnap children.

Today, Investigation Discovery has issued a warning to the malignant turds out there who need to be locked up: John Walsh and his son Callahan Walsh are calling on the general public to share intel that will help these jerks get what they deserve.

Vigilante viewers are what the Walshes and entire team want to engage as season three of In Pursuit comes on August 18.

About In Pursuit with John Walsh

It has been 40 years since John’s son Adam Walsh was abducted and killed.

Victim advocate John Walsh and son Callahan still fight, and together they continue the mission to catch fugitives and recover missing children.  Their series relies on leads from viewers who may have seen something that would help authorities, with all calls and online tips vetted by experts and followed up on by the appropriate authorities, including local law enforcement, FBI, and the U.S. Marshals.

Returning for a third season, In Pursuit with John Walsh carries forward John Walsh’s lifelong mission of bringing fugitives to justice and empowering the public to help support a more effective and accountable criminal justice system.  Walsh and his son, Callahan Walsh, introduce ID’s engaged audience to unsolved violent crimes that urgently need resolution.

The new season premiere

In the premiere episode of In Pursuit, the investigation into the disappearance of a devoted single mother narrows in on a man who claims to be her secret boyfriend. But after Erik Arceneaux goes on the run, John is determined to find him and deliver answers to Maria Jimenez Rodríguez’s family.

Then, in 1989, 11-year-old Alisha bravely reveals that her adopted father, Mark Blevins, sexually abused her for years before going on the run. Thirty years later, Callahan learns the dark truth behind a picture-perfect family and joins the hunt to bring him to justice.
