The next episode of ‘Reported Missing’, BBC One’s TV series following missing person cases in Cheshire, airs next week (Monday 17 September).
The latest episode focuses on the case of Jean – a 77-year-old who caught the bus to a doctor’s appointment in Neston from her home in Thornton Hough and has vanished.
As night falls officers become increasingly worried about Jean’s health leading to a large-scale search for the pensioner.
The hour-long episode of the critically acclaimed ‘Reported Missing’ documentary is at 9pm on Monday.
A production team from Blast! Films has been working with the Constabulary since September 2017 following high risk missing from home cases from the moment the 999 call comes in, through to their resolution.
It has been a carefully and thoughtfully made series exploring the work of Cheshire Police and their collaboration with other agencies including Search and Rescue, the Underwater Search Team and National Police Air Service (NPAS).
The series also follows the sensitive stories and emotional journeys of the families and friends involved in each case.
It also looks into some of the reasons people go missing and the resources involved in the search operation.
