“Missing” is a nationally-syndicated weekly television series focusing on actual cases of missing persons, both children and adults, from across North America. Working with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, and missing persons organizations such as The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, their goal is to provide viewers with vital facts about missing individuals and to increase public awareness.
The series, which is appropriate for family viewing and children ages 13-16 in particular, provides information and descriptions of missing children, including endangered runaways as well as victims of abductions.
The show also presents peer-to-peer advice on safety in public places and in cyber space, including real-world examples of how to avoid potentially dangerous situations. The program emphasizes taking active responsibility for personal safety and promotes situational awareness, presented in a calm and non-threatening manner suited for teenagers.
