20/20: Dial M for Missing (ABC Friday October 21, 2022)




Dial M for Missing: Prior to Peter’s shocking murder of QC in 2012, the couple, Peter and Quee Choo “QC” Chadwick, appeared to lead happy lives in Newport Beach, California, with their three sons. Peter regularly appeared in court after posting bail, until he disappeared in January 2015.

This new  episode of “20/20” details Peter Chadwick’s five-year search by the U.S. Marshals Service and how one phone call ultimately helped locate him.

Exclusive interviews conducted by ABC News correspondent Bob Woodruff with the family of Peter’s friend Claudia Soto (who was killed in the car accident in Mexico), Adriana Segovia, Claudia’s sister, Claudia, and Esperanza Segovia, as well as other Patzuaro locals who knew Peter, are featured in the two-hour episode.
