John Walsh he is best known for hosting the show America’s Most Wantedaired from 1988 to 2013. Walsh stepped away from the series in 2011, but is returning to host with his son, Callahan Walsh. John Walsh is an anti-crime activist and creator/producer of the original program. His son is a child advocate for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. He had previously appeared with his father in both America’s Most Wantedand on several series his father hosted for CNN and HLN.

John Walsh said of the series’ return, in a statement:

”It’s an incredible time to America’s Most Wanted return to Fox, especially in collaboration with my son Callahan, to continue his life’s work. I am constantly amazed by how instrumental our loyal viewers are in ensuring we get justice for victims and their loved ones, and today they have entirely new tools at their disposal to help us respond and quickly solve even more crimes.

America’s Most Wanted was one of the longest-running shows on Fox when it was canceled in 2011, only to later be moved to Lifetime. Walsh originally launched the series on Fox in 1988 after his son Adam was kidnapped from a shopping mall near their home. Adam’s remains were found two weeks later. Walsh’s family founded the Adam Walsh Child Resource Center, a nonprofit organization that eventually merged with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

From its inception, America’s Most Wanted helped capture more than 1,190 criminals. Fox brought it back in 2020, with Elizabeth Vargas as host, all with Walsh’s blessing.

Now, the original host will take over starting January 22nd. I grew up watching America’s Most Wanted with my parents, and I can’t wait to see him again when he returns. The series highlights the biggest criminals on the run and details their crimes. It’s fascinating and it’s great that it has led to the arrest of many people in need of detention.
