Missing is an American mystery thriller action drama television series created by Gregory Poirier which follows a retired CIA operative, Becca Winstone, who does whatever it takes to find her son after he goes missing under suspicious circumstances.
How far would you go to save the only thing you have left in the world?
After a murder took Paul Winstone's (Sean Bean) life, his wife Becca (Ashley Judd) and their son Michael (Nick Eversman) struggled to rebuild their lives. Now, 10 years later, Michael goes missing under suspicious circumstances, and Becca will do anything it takes to find him.
Ever since Michael saw his father Paul blown up when he was just eight years old, Becca has always been a tad overprotective. But she couldn't say no to Michael's amazing opportunity to study in Rome.
Just a few weeks into his trip, however, Michael disappears. Becca flies to Rome for answers, but no one takes her seriously — so she takes matters into her own hands.
You see, Becca isn't just a mother looking for her son. Both she and Michael's father used to be lethal CIA agents, and whoever took Michael messed with the wrong mother.
Now, if Becca wants to find her son alive, she will have to rely on old friends and reopen old wounds. Her resourcefulness, skill and determination will be put to the test — but a mother's love knows no limits.
Exotic locations and thrilling twists will keep you riveted in Missing, a drama from creator, executive producer and writer Gregory Poirier (National Treasure: Book of Secrets) and executive producers Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo (The Gates) and Steve Shill and James Parriott.
