Reid and Morgan find two identical text books in Bahni's room, suggesting that she was likely in her room studying with the other person, Paddy Morris.
Paddy tells Morgan and Reid that Bahni left her phone in her room because they went out to a party, and didn't want to take their purses. She tells them that Bahni left the party alone.

A man named Sam Burnett comes into the BAU claiming to be the guy in the video. Rossi brings him in for questioning. JJ joins them.
Burnett tells them that he moonlights as a sober driver for people who drink and don't want to drive. He says he followed Bahni intending to see if she wanted a ride, but that another man stepped out and walked off with her. He says it seemed like they knew each other.
JJ asks him why he stepped back and let Bahni go by before following her. He becomes angry at this question. They release him.
Joy angrily confronts Rossi for not arrest Burneet. She decides to out for some air.
Rossi later asks where she is, and they realize that she's gone after Burnett. Garcia determines that Burnett went to the same college as Joy and left when the first girl went missing.
The team realizes they're dealing with two unsubs, one of whom is Burnett.
Garcia pings both Burnett and Joy's phone and discovers they're both together at the same alley where Bahni was abducted.

The BAU shows up at the alley and arrest Burnett.
Joy tells Rossi the reason she's so concerned about Bahni. She tells him the story about how, a week before the first girl was abducted, she was attacked by a man in a ski mask while walking home drunk after a frat party. She says he threw her into a bush, and she managed to scratch him and jab his eye before escaping.
The reason this case is so important is that she didn't report her attacker, and then a week later a girl went missing.
