"AMERICA'S MOST WANTED" REACHES INCREDIBLE 1000th CAPTURE MILESTONE

Viewer Tips Help Take Down Accused Killer; John Walsh Will Mark Achievement with Special Broadcast Saturday, May 17, on FOX

AMERICA'S MOST WANTED, currently in its 21st season, has achieved an incredible milestone: 1,000 fugitives have been captured as a direct result of the partnership between AMW, viewers and law enforcement. John Walsh, host of the series, will mark the milestone with a special episode of AMERICA'S MOST WANTED Saturday, May 17 (9:00-10:00 ET/PT) on FOX. The show will originate from Times Square in New York City and will highlight some of the greatest captures in AMW history. And, of course, the show will include information about current fugitives viewers can help law enforcement track down.

Capture 1,000 came after AMW received a tip that Dwight Smith, an accused killer from New York, was hiding out in Richmond, VA. The U.S. Marshals Service and the NYPD jumped on the tip, and Smith was arrested without incident just hours after AMW broadcast his profile on April 19. Full details of the case and the capture can be found at www.amw.com.

"Every one of the 1,000 fugitives our viewers have helped take down is a testament to what I say at the end of each broadcast," says AMW host John Walsh. "You CAN make a difference."

When AMERICA'S MOST WANTED premiered in February 1988 on FOX, no one knew if asking television viewers for tips to help law enforcement catch fugitives would work � but it didn't take long to find out. The first fugitive profiled had been on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list for nearly a year, and thanks to AMW viewers, he was arrested just four days after the broadcast.

AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK airs Saturdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. AMW is produced by STF Productions, Inc. Lance Heflin is Executive Producer.
