Single mother Sarah Palmer hides her family in Oregon when her daughter Christy becomes a key witness in a murder against the mob.
The detective trying to find the girl calls the mom's cellphone in order to locate her. That is not necessary, as any IT person such as the police tech would know. When a cellphone is on, it is constantly looking for a tower and as such if the phone number is known it can be located via triangulation. Accordingly, the detective would have been able to locate the mom in a matter of hours without ever calling her phone.
