Large Programme Image


The first series of The Missing, the dramatic thriller about a young boy who mysteriously disappears, was a smash hit both in the UK and internationally. And now it returns with a new story, new location and new cast, with Tchéky Karyo reprising his role as detective Julien Baptiste.

A young British woman stumbles through the streets of her German hometown and collapses. Her name is Alice Webster, and she has been missing for 11 years. Alice’s return sends shockwaves through the small community of Eckhausen, especially when it is revealed that she may hold vital clues to the whereabouts of another missing girl.

Told simultaneously over a number of timeframes, the series follows Alice’s family as they are thrown back into a turmoil that threatens to tear them apart at the seams. French missing persons detective, Julien Baptiste, becomes embroiled in the mystery as he races across Europe to pursue a 12-year-old case that he never let die.

Through a gripping puzzle of twists and turns, this series explores the emotional complexity of what happens when a missing child returns, as well as following the thrilling chase for a missing girl who is yet to be found.
