MISSING is an award-winning podcast series, selected as one of iTunes' Best Podcasts of 2015. Hosted by best-selling crime writer Tim Weaver, the show investigates the world of missing people – who disappears, why they disappear, the pressures of life on the run, and who tracks them down – and charts the progression of a missing persons search. We follow Tim as he meets with leading experts from the worlds of investigation, surveillance, data, forensics, psychology, and technology. Each week on MISSING, he challenges them – and himself – with the ultimate question: is it really possible to disappear? New episodes are released on Thursday mornings. MISSING is a production of Kindred and Penguin Books.

This series promises to be a fascinating journey into the motivations behind people who are reported missing. The first episode gives a strong and nuanced overview of the dimensions of this phenomenon - the pain and loss and psychological aspects are not glossed over. Appetite whetted, will be sticking with this one!
A look at why and how people go missing, and how others try to trace them, from multiple perspectives. Fans of Serial or other crime or documentary-related podcasts will love this.
Addictive new podcast
If you've been looking for the next Serial, this is it. MISSING is a gripping new podcast that explores where people go when they seemingly vanish, and how you can go about tracking them down. The episodes are narrated by bestselling author Tim Weaver and I found him and his guests to be fascinating and highly informed. Can't recommend this new series highly enough.
