Episode 01—Ron's Gone

In Episode 01, Down the Path host Will Rice provides an overview of the days leading up to and following Ronald Scheepstra's disappearance on April 11, 2009. 

A few people important to the story are introduced, including Kim Calkins (who at the time managed the Hotel Tierra Maya, where Ron was staying in Xcalak, Mexico); Michael Graham, an American expat who assisted in the search for Ron in the day's after he disappeared; and Cindy Scheepstra, Ron's wife. 

The mystery begins immediately, as those close to the disappearance struggle to understand how a man can vanish completely, without a trace.
