John Cho thinks he knows everything about this fifteen year old daughter. Turns out he doesn't know much at all and this handicaps him when she goes missing. A police detective (Debra Messing) takes an interest and the two of them try to track her down. The entire story is told through computer screens and uses its capabilities to find the missing girl. I thought I would grow bored with it, as I often do with epistolary novels, but it worked pretty well. It's a clever setup and just when I thought I had solved it, I turned out to be wrong. The film was directed by Aneesh Chaganty. Give it a try.
