On the bus, there are three other people who also heading for Hatoyama Farm. One of them is watching a video and Mitsuhiko tries to find out about the video. Suddenly, the man gets angry and grabs Mitsuhiko's hand, asking him to erase the video. Fortunately, Amuro is also on the bus, and successfully resolves the situation.

Arriving at Hatoyama Farm, they find out that there is no one in the office. There is no chicken left in the ranch, and there is a huge hole in the side of the ranch.

While some people go to the toilet, Ayumi sees a chicken wandering around. She plans to tell Conan, but he is talking to Amuro, so she decides to quietly chase the chicken. When everybody gathers again, they realize that Ayumi is missing. They later divides into two groups: Kobayashi with Conan, Mitsuhiko, and Amuro, while Wakasa go with Haibara and Genta. When the others start searching, Amuro finds a bishop shogi piece on the ground, which he feels he has seen it before.

Ayumi manages to catch the chicken, but then found herself in the woods. There are lots of burnt branches and a weird trail on ground, along with the tree being wrapped with something. Someone then approaches Ayumi.

Conan, Mitsuhiko, Amuro, and Kobayashi later meet Umisuke Hatoyama, the younger brother of Hatoyama Farm manager Gisuke Hatoyama. He admits that he saw Ayumi, but in fact she is being held hostage by Umisuke himself. He asks them to throw out their cellphone and follows his direction. Umisuke then locks them in the basement.
