A man named Masaki Higuchi is showing a poster of his missing wife Tomomi Higuchi to several people while he is getting wet from the rain. Ran and Conan approach him with an umbrella to offer him shelter and ask to see the poster. Ran immediately recognizes Tomomi from her workplace, a florist shop. Masaki asks for their help and Ran suggests he talk to her father Kogoro Mouri, known as "Sleeping Kogoro".

At the detective agency, Masaki tells them what he knows. He had planned a date with his wife Tomomi at an expensive restaurant but she never showed up. Kogoro asks if maybe she ran off, but Masaki tells him that that is impossible as they had a happy life together. As evidence, he reveals that her phone and wallet were left behind, something a person running away would never do.

Masaki asks Kogoro to investigate the case for him which he accepts. Kogoro along with Conan question Masaki's neighbors, getting different statements from them but nothing to lead them to Tomomi.
