For these perpetrators, the stories may be different, but the motives are always the same - to stay out of prison and live life on the lam.

DISAPPEARED

When someone goes missing, every moment is an emotional roller coaster for the loved ones left behind, and every second and every single clue counts in the search for the missing. Each episode of DISAPPEARED begins at the time immediately before the individual vanished, and chronicles the search for clues hidden beneath seemingly everyday behavior that may indicate what happened to the individual. While some of the resolutions are heart-warming and others tragic, many cases remain open to this day and continue to be a source of unbearable frustration for family members and friends. For the open cases that have gone cold, DISAPPEARED asks viewers to share any fresh leads in hopes of deciphering what truly happened to the missing and whether foul play may have been involved, or if the person simply chose to leave on their own.
