Plot Synopsis

THE MISSING is a dramatic thriller series that each season focuses on a different story of a missing person. The eight-episode first season centers on the psychological fallout and ensuing years-long manhunt resulting from the sudden disappearance of five-year-old Oliver Hughes while on holiday with his parents in France in 2006. The story, which unfolds over two time frames simultaneously, goes inside the mind of Tony Hughes, a father desperate to locate his lost son. With help from local police detective Julien Baptiste, Tony embarks on an obsessive quest to find his son and those responsible for his disappearance. Tony's exhaustive search fractures his relationship with his wife, Emily, and threatens to destroy his life. Starz aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT. On Sunday, February 12, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT, Starz aired the U.S. premiere of Season 2. The second season follows parents Sam (David Morrissey) and Gemma Webster, whose daughter, Alice, went missing in 2003. Eleven years later, a young British woman stumbles through the streets of her German hometown and announces herself as Alice Webster, the girl who went missing over a decade prior. Alice's sudden return causes ripples of suspicion through the small community, especially when it is revealed she may hold vital clues to the whereabouts of another missing girl, Sophie Giroux, who vanished shortly before Alice. Haunted by the unsolved Giroux case, French detective Julien Baptiste is motivated out of retirement to follow new information that Alice may have on Sophie's disappearance. Told across three timelines, flitting between 2014 and the present day, the series follows Alice's family as they are thrown into a turmoil that threatens to tear them apart at the seams.
On Tuesday, July 11, 2017 Anchor Bay and Lionsgate released THE MISSING Season 2 on DVD. When a kidnapped woman unexpectedly returns home, chaos and confusion sweep through her small town, leading a retired detective to reopen a case he thought had gone cold. Run Time: 7 Hrs., 50 Mins.
