Disappeared is an American documentary television series on Investigation Discovery which debuted on January 11, 2010.[1] The series contains interviews and commentary by people involved in various cases (usually police officers and other investigators, and the subject's relatives and friends) in which individuals have gone missing unexpectedly.[2] By the time episodes air, some cases are resolved with positive outcomes, while others meet sadder resolutions. Most often, the cases covered by the series are not solved by the time the episode reaches broadcast.
