When five year-old Oliver disappears while on holiday in France, it is the beginning of a journey that will span eight years and two continents. The Missing takes you inside the mind of a father, Tony (Nesbitt - Cold Feet, Murphy's Law, Jekyll), desperate to find his lost son.

Told through a delicate and complex narrative that reflects the fractured and frantic battle for a lost child, The Missing is a thrilling and heart-breaking drama of a life consumed by hope, love, truth and obsession.
A gripping puzzle with twists and turns at every stage, Tony's exhaustive search fractures his marriage to Emily (O'Connor - Mr Selfridge ) and threatens to destroy his life. Julien (Karyo - The Patriot), the French police detective who launched the initial search for the child, also finds himself drawn back into the hunt that he was never able to resolve when Oliver first disappeared.
Exploring the emotional cost of a child's abduction, this gripping thriller is expected to become one of television and DVD's biggest titles of the year.
