Hosted by Louise Minchin, the series uses filmed reconstructions of individual missing persons cases, studio interviews with their friends and family, direct appeals for missing people and stories of loved ones reunited with people who have been missing sometimes for years.
The programme also investigates the reasons why people go missing and looks at the technology and techniques used to help find those who have disappeared. As a result of the appeals, the BBC and Missing People’s confidential helpline have received hundreds of calls of potential sightings and numerous people featured on the show have been found.
