Mortimer’s Patch was a highly popular detective series following Detective Sergeant Doug Mortimer (Terence Cooper) and his policing adventures in the small town of Cobham. Mortimer plays a city cop returning to his rural roots. In this Keith Aberdein-scripted episode a girl, Judy Savage (Smash Palace’s Greer Robson), goes missing in sand dunes near the shack of an eccentric recluse. Fear and suspicion mounts and Mortimer brings in help from the city: prejudiced detective, Chris Knight (Ken Blackburn). Don Selwyn plays Sergeant Bob Storey.

I’ve got a lost child, what do expect me to do? Put an ad in the lost and found column? Get me the Deputy Commissioner ... I don’t care if he’s bloody drinking champagne out of his surgical truss!
– Mortimer (Cooper) gets some vice squad support for the search
