On 5th June 1998, 11 year-old Wesley waved goodbye to his mother, Liz, and rode off on his bicycle to go to the local shop to get some sweets; Liz reported him missing to the police when he failed to return home and it was getting dark. Someone is reported missing every 90 seconds. Each episode of this series features one case as it reveals powerful and emotional testimony from families and friends of those who have disappeared. Every story intimately shares the moment when a family changes forever – when a missing persons enquiry turns into a murder investigation. As each programme unfolds police and authorities investigate and bring the perpetrators to justice.
