James Nesbitt explores grief as a father whose child disappears
“The Missing” is a thriller etched into a portrait of the parents of a 5-year-old boy who, with his family on holiday in a quiet French village, disappears without warning. During the series’ eight episodes, the action pingpongs between 2006 and 2014, by which time the child’s mother (Frances O’Connor) has mounted a desperate effort to move on. She exists in stark contrast to Tony, the father (James Nesbitt), who in the ensuing eight years has only grown more fixated on finding his son as he grasps at evermore slender straws.
