The family of William Smolinski Jr., who disappeared more than two years ago, hopes a national television audience may help in their search.Smolinski's case was profiled on the CBS show "Without a Trace" on Sunday night with a feature set for Monday morning on the "CBS Early Show."Channel 3 Eyewitness News reporter Katy Zachry reported the Smolinskis have long waited a long time for this kind of national attention, which the family said started when the FBI stepped in to help Waterbury police with the case."We're maybe hoping someone out there knows something and will come forward," said Janice Smolinski, the mother of the missing man. "It took a long time to get this far."William Smolinski Jr., 31, who was known as Billy, was last seen in August 2004 when he apparently told a neighbor that he was going on a short trip. Billy's truck never left the driveway and his wallet and keys were found inside the house, where his dog was left alone."We formed a whole search on our own. We searched the banks of the river, all along the Naugatuck River on our own," said William Smolinski, the father of the missing man.

For months, Waterbury police told family they didn't suspect foul play, but the Smolinskis did from the first day. They said they believe they're one step closer to the truth with the FBI's involvement."We're confident we're going to get our answers," said Janice Smolinski.The Smolinskis continue to post fliers throughout the city that publicize a $15,000 reward for his return or recovery.If you have information regarding this investigation, contact the FBI by dialing 203-777-6311.

Is "Without a Trace" the series that is fictional? Or is that what they titled the story about Billy? Not sure which show it is to watch? Do tell! And awesome for national attention! Way to go Smolinski's!!!
