A mother's gotta do what a mother's gotta do!

Appearing as former CIA agent Becca Winstone on ABC's Missing, Ashley Judd is willing to go to great lengths to find her only son after he goes missing while studying abroad in Rome.

As the above preview clip shows, Judd travels to Italy on the show's March 15 premiere to retrace Michael's steps -- only to be met with disastrous results.

Check out the clip above to find out what happens when Judd encounters more than she bargained for at her son's apartment in Rome and is forced to defend herself against a hulking armed assailant.
