The Missing is a British anthology drama television series written by brothers Harry and Jack Williams. It debuted in the UK on BBC One on 28 October 2014, and in the United States on Starz on 15 November 2014. The Missing is an international co-production between the BBC and Starz.


In 2014 Baptiste and the girl visit an abandoned WWII bunker where she says she was held. A receipt found at the bunker is traced to a local butcher, Kristian Herz. The girl formally identifies Herz as her captor after Brigadier Adrian Stone surreptitiously threatens the girl, by way of a fable, evidently implicating himself in some way. In 2016 Baptiste has a brain tumour. He flies to Kirkuk, Iraq, searching for a British Army Trooper Daniel Reed. Baptiste feels he is being followed. Assisted by a resident European reporter, he approaches the front line where the two are captured by Peshmerga soldiers.
