What's The Missing about?

Can you help find ‘The Missing?’ Hosted by journalist Pandora Sykes.
‘The Missing’ is a returning podcast that looks into the cases of the long-term missing and asks you, the listener, to help.
Brought to you in association with charities Locate International and Missing People, every week we explore a different case, hear original interviews with family and friends, and ask the questions that need to be answered. Where did they go? What happened to them? And does anyone listening have any information? In the UK alone, a person is reported missing every 90 seconds. In this series, we ask you to become part of the search. With your help, some of these cases could be solved.
