A pioneering new TV series called ‘The Missing’ is set to start this evening on Channel 4 to highlight the way that families are affected if their loved one goes missing.
This powerful, moving, First Cut documentary follows the stories of three families struggling to cope with the disappearance of a loved one who has vanished without a trace; and it is a project that has received major contributions from Missing People’s staff and volunteers.
The families left behind have been plunged into limbo, unable to move forward with their lives in the absence of evidence, answers or closure. The programme explores how hope is driving them to extraordinary lengths as they try to bring their missing loved ones home.
Missing People Chief Executive Jo Youle said:
“We are very pleased to have helped so extensively with this series: with substantial interviews from our staff and volunteers, and brave contributions from families affected by a disappearance.
“We urge the public to tune in if they can, to see what these families endure as they search for their loved ones. We will continue to support anyone affected, for as long as it takes, through our 24/7 hotline 116 000.”
