The Missing

back to projects

Every two minutes, someone in Britain disappears. Most are found within 48 hours. But every year, more than 2000 people go missing and do not return. This powerful observational documentary tells the emotive stories of three families whose loved ones have vanished into thin air:

A devoted mother who walked out of her house 3 years ago and disappeared, leaving behind her husband and their young baby.
A motorsports mechanic who drove away from his home one morning and vanished. His wife of 10 years is leading the search for him.
A middle aged man who walked away from his life without any warning, leaving his brother and police officers baffled.
Set against the backdrop of these mysterious disappearances, this film reveals the compelling stories of the relatives left behind. It follows family members driven to extraordinary lengths by their search for answers, closure, and the hope of bringing their missing loved ones home.
