Written by Harry and Jack Williams, starring David Morrissey, Keeley Hawes and Tchéky Karyo, the second series of The Missing is another eight-part series produced for BBC One and Starz set over multiple time lines in Germany, France and Iraq.

The second series focuses on the disappearance of two girls, Alice Webster and Sophie Giroux. Alice disappeared in 2003 whilst living with her family on a British Army base in Germany. Sophie is a young French girl who disappeared shortly before Alice in a seemingly unrelated incident.

When Alice Webster reappears in 2014, Julian Baptiste, the retired French Detective, is suspicious. Baptiste was involved in the original search for Sophie Giroux and is drawn to inconsistencies with Alice’s story, travelling from France to  Germany and Iraq in search of an answer.
