Discovery-owned true crime network Investigation Discovery (ID) will run the two-part investigative doc Cold Valley in November and December.

The documentary special follows two women working to solve the mystery of a string of disappearances and murders in the Lewis Clark Valley in the 1970s and 80s. Setting this apart from other investigations is the fact that investigators are convinced they’ve identified the killer, but simply don’t have enough hard evidence yet.

Between 1979 and 1982, five young people disappeared in the Lewis Clark Valley area along the Washington State and Idaho border. Three bodies were later found, while two people remain missing but presumed dead.

In Cold Valley, Jackie Nichols (pictured) and Gloria Bobertz, a detective and cousin of one of the victims, respectively, interview witnesses and track down new leads in the hopes of cracking the case once and for all after nearly four decades.

The special is produced for ID by Saloon Media and Pixcom Productions. From Saloon, Paul Kilback is the director and series producer, and Michael Kot serves as executive producer. Nicola Merola, Charles Lafortune, Sylvie Desrochers and Jacquelin Bouchard serve as executive producers for Pixcom. Ron Simon is executive producer for ID.

“This investigation is incredibly unique because it is so close to being finally solved,” said Henry S. Schleiff, group president of ID, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America, in a statement. “Part of our mission at ID is to show real people with real stories and, here, the two women we feature are pursuing a story so chilling and compelling, it’s hard to believe it’s actually true.”

Cold Valley premieres Nov. 29 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ID, and concludes Dec. 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
