Do you know the name of a movie with a similar storyline as of Flight Plan?

I know that there is a bunch of movies like that out there, its an older movie, I would say more then 5 years. But my wife and I are trying to think of it and it's bugging us. I forgot who was in it.

    Bunny Lake Is Missing (1965)

    starring Carol Lynley, Kier Dullea, Noel Coward

    IMDb synopsis:

    Having just arrived in London from Boston, single mother Ann Lake believes that she has dropped her four year old illegitimate daughter, Felicia - who Ann has nicknamed Bunny, the name of her imaginary childhood friend - off for her first day at her new school. Ann's belief is tested when she goes to pick up Bunny after school, Bunny who is not there. No one at the school even remembers ever seeing Bunny. The only person in London who knows Ann and can vouch for her assertion is her brother, magazine reporter Steven Lake. Ann's worry is heightened because there have been a few child abductions and murders of late. The police are brought into the matter. The further that sympathetic lead investigator, Superintendent Newhouse, gets into the investigation, the more it seems like Bunny is a figment of Ann's imagination, her fantasy supported by Steven for her own mental well-being. Steven however seems convinced that someone knows of Bunny's disappearance, that someone perhaps being one of the plethora of school administrators including its elderly owner, Ada Ford, or the Lake's seemingly eccentric landlord, Horatio Wilson.

    Here's the movie trailer:

    This sort of missing-person story goes further back, of course, including "So Long at the Fair" (1950) and "Lady on a Train" (1945).

    What about "Flight Plan" did you like? A mother/daughter relationship? A child being kidnapped and later found? A movie that takes place on a plane? I'd recommend the new movie "Taken" that is now available on DVD. It's about a daughter that has been kidnapped with loads of suspense but LOTS of killings. So it may or may not be what you are looking for. Did you see Jodie Foster and Kristen Stewart in "Panic Room"-- more like 7 years old though. A single mother lives with her daughter, Sarah. Following an intense night of hiding in the panic room (safe room) of their new home with her daughter, Meg manages to foil the plans of the invaders during an ambush attack.
