Nikki Batista is the captain of Philadelphia's Missing Persons Unit, leading an unorthodox team that includes her ex-husband, Jason Grant, and her current fiance, Mike.

The unit focuses on bringing home those who have gone missing in an expedient manner.

Nikki is fearless and passionate, a mother of two, who takes every case personally because of her own experience with her son going missing and going years without knowing the truth about what really happened to him.

Nikki Batista Quotes

Nikki: You never mentioned Wayne is a woman.
Wayne: My parents had a sense of humor.

Hollis: MPU's closure rate is truly excellent. Truly stellar. But the Jason Grant situation, I know, you two have history, but he's a lawsuit waiting to happen, shooting at parked cars, turning the video off during interrogation.
Nikki: Detective Grant is also the best cop in Philly; my team all of us we focus on getting the job done.
Hollis: You want to explain how eggs play into that?
Nikki: One of my people is a shaman.
Hollis: One of my dogs likes to eat its own crap if I let him, but I don't because I know better. The thing is, you tick all my boxes, Nikki. I have many, so if you're not quite in control of your team, we'll get you there. Don't worry; I'm a world-class expert in making problems go away.

Alert: Missing Persons Unit Quotes

Mike: Kem, I love you, but we don't have time for that.
Kemi: Sure, if facts were all that will find Chloe, but, as I believe, finding her is equal parts faith and fact. Time spent praying is time well spent.
Nikki: Preach.

I don't understand how you do that, Nik. I don't understand how you search for other people's kids when we never found ours. Some marriages could survive that type of loss. I'm sorry ours couldn't. Keith would be 17 next week.
