Retired supervisory special agent Sherman Hopkins served 22 years with the FBI. In this episode of FBI Retired Case File Review, he reviews a horrific kidnapping case he worked while assigned to the Dallas Division. The case involved three little girls who went missing from their neighborhoods over a three-year period. The only thing their abductions had in common was a white van seen in the vicinity of these separate incidents. He also shares how this case affected him as a young father and his admiration for the families, particularly one of the mothers, who fought to make sure they would eventually learn what happened to their daughters.
