“A powerful documentary…an extraordinary film”
BBC News

“An absorbing, often tormenting glimpse at the mystery surrounding an unspeakable crime whose reverberations live on.”
The Hollywood Reporter

“A distinguished contribution to the true-crime genre…the loving testament of a woman who never allowed herself to forget her ill-fated playmate.”
The Washington Post

"Every minute of "Have You Seen Andy?" is riveting" Boston Globe

"A compelling documentary... Stories like Andy's will never be forgotten and
remain the driving force behind the mission of NCMEC." John Rabun/NCMEC

“…truly terrifying…”
The Boston Herald

“A compelling documentary memorializing the tragic disappearance of a young boy from Massachusetts. It demonstrates how the abduction of one child impacts families, friends, law enforcement and entire communities. Although the abduction of Andy occurred in 1976, the aftereffects are present today and remain as painful reminders that these cases must be resolved. Stories like Andy’s will never be forgotten and remain the driving force behind the mission of NCMEC .”
