Anachronisms 

Early in the film, the very young version of the daughter is shown learning to play the piano. She is seen playing a Yamaha DX7 which is extraordinarily unlikely, as that is a digital FM synthesizer from 1984 which has neither built-in speakers nor a pleasant acoustic piano simulation, and its keyboard is unweighted, like a cheap home Casio.

Very shortly afterwards, she is seen playing a tune on, yes, a cheap home keyboard, with the soundtrack following her - badly. The notes she plays are completely different than the soundtrack.

Errors in geography 

The lake where Margot disappears is shown in many scenes to be in the San Jose/Santa Clara area. Yet, when showing a map of the route she would have taken to get there it shows her turning off Route 101 to Route 152 along Pacheco Pass Road. Clearly marked on the map is the city of Gilroy, which is about 35 miles south of San Jose.

Factual errors 

When David goes on Margot's tumblr page, the URL reads www.tumblr.com/blog/mkmania01 but the URL format when viewing this blog would be mkmania01.tumblr.com.

David also reaches Margot's tumblr page from clicking the "Log In" search result suggesting she was already logged into the account on her computer but in that case, it would have taken him to her dashboard, not her blog and also would not have had an option to "Follow" in the upper right corner.

Revealing mistakes 

While Margo is driving in her a Camry, a sunroof is seen above her head. When the Camry is pulled out of the lake, there is no sunroof on that car.

Detective Vick (Deborah Messing) refers to "the 101" and "the 152" when referring to Northern California, specifically San Jose area highways. The use of "The" is common in southern California when mentioning freeways or highways. However, in Northern California it is not used. The scriptwriters, obviously from SoCal, missed that.
