Looking for various episodes between 2002 and 2011 Jul 8, 2018 9:10:06 GMT -5

As most who frequent this forum know, I am a HUGE fan of AMW. While I haven't really been participating as much online since the show was canceled (I only halfheartedly watched The Hunt) I still keep tabs on what's going on with the various most wanted lists and fugitive updates.
Part of the reason I know so much about the show is because I have nearly every episode from March 30, 2002 until the series' final episodes in October 2012 recorded onto various VHS tapes. I started when I was 13 and just never really stopped the habit.
But you may have noticed I said "nearly" every episode during that time period. That's because, for one reason or another, some episodes I simply did not record. Some of them I've seen but wasn't able to record. Some of them I haven't seen and didn't record, and one I know I saw and recorded but can't find the tape I recorded the episode onto.
As a result, I'm asking my fellow AMW fans - or anyone who happened to record the episodes obsessively like I did - if they have any of the following episodes, which I am missing from my collection.
July 27, 2002
This episode I actually did see, but my family had a party the night the episode aired and I wasn't able to get the VCR set up to record.
- Update on various missing children the show had been profiling, and a feature on what seemed like a child abduction epidemic that year.
- Andre Neverson's first profile.
- Update on the Ray Guidry murder investigation (two segments)
April 5, 2003
I have never seen this episode. This was the first episode I attempted to record on a VCR timer after my family got Dish Network, but I screwed up and ended up just recording snow.
- An unknown capture report was featured in this episode. I believe it may have been Annette Hernandez or the New York Sunrise Killer, Larme Price (though it's possible both were aired)
- Last profile of accused teenage killer Brian Martin, accused of killing his dad when he was just 16.
- First profile of Mustapha Atat.
August 23, 2008
I have seen this episode, but it aired when I was moving back to college and circumstances didn't lend themselves to recording this episode.
- It was a rerun of the January 26, 2008 episode, but it had been drastically re-edited.
- I know Leslie Raymond's capture report was featured, and I think Robert Gaye's also was.
- This episode also featured another airing of the Jimmy Trindade investigation, a man who went missing while out boating.
March 21, 2009
I have never seen this episode, and I'm unsure how it didn't record. By this point my family had a DVR that should have captured the episode. I'm guessing a family member accidentally deleted it (it'll happen later on, too).
- Profile of the unsolved murder of Wendale Davis.
- Father and son Michael and Teven Collins profiled (and were later caught because of this broadcast).
- Kisha Rutledge's first profile.
May 16, 2009
I have never seen this episode. I ended up not being able to record it because I moved into an apartment for the summer and the cable guy hadn't been able to come install my cable yet.
- John Walsh visits Mexico to solve the violence at the border problem.
- Various drug lords and drug runners are profiled, including Joseph Garcia and Joaquin "Chapo" Guzman.
- Capture report of Michael and Teven Collins (man, someone did not want me to see these guys on this show!)
July 24, 2010
This is the only episode of AMW that I purposefully skipped and did not record. It was the hourlong update on the Dale Helmig case.
April 2, 2011
This is the episode I was referring to that I know that I recorded and I know that I saw, but I can't find the VHS tape I recorded it onto.
- Unsolved murders of Nori Amaya and Bill Powell are featured.
- First profile of Werner Francisco.
June 18, 2011
I would have seen this episode if my dad didn't delete it from the DVR. I gave him instructions to record all the episodes on the DVR onto a VHS tape and then mail me the tape. He successfully recorded the preceding three episodes. But then he fell asleep during recording and when he woke up, deleted the last episode he had to record. I know this because, when he fell asleep, it recorded the DVR screen, and I can clearly see this episode was on the DVR at the time. Given that this was the last regular episode on FOX, you can see why I'm frustrated.
October 29, 2011
The first FOX 50/50 special. I actually saw this one (save for the first minute or two) but couldn't find a tape in time to record it. This one is particularly frustrating since amw.com's episode guide for this episode was slightly inaccurate, and I wanted to cross reference with the actual episode.
If anyone has any of these episodes, please feel free to comment below or PM me. I'd really be appreciative!
