Every Mother's Worst Fear is a 1998 American television movie starring Cheryl Ladd, Jordan Ladd and Ted McGinley. This film is a cautionary story of cyberspace, kidnapping and the dangers of chat rooms.


Martha Hoagland (Jordan Ladd) is a 16-year-old girl suffering through her parents' (Cheryl Ladd, Robert Wisden) recent divorce. Her mother is working long hours. Martha has recently been dumped by her highschool boyfriend. Feeling lonely and seeking solace, Martha turns to an online chat room. Martha believes she is chatting with a young man who cares for her, when in reality she is chatting with an internet predator involved in a cyber-kidnapping ring (Ted McGinley). Martha, who has told her online chat friend that she is 21, is lured to join her new "friend". When the investigation starts, he claims he never sent her a ticket. The police, the FBI, and an experienced computer hacker help Martha's mother Connie to rescue her 16 year old daughter from the "Scanman."
