Investigation Discovery has announced that their popular television show Disappeared is being released as a podcast.
Over nine seasons, which aired between 2009-2018, Disappeared told the stories of individuals who seemingly vanished. It focused on the events that led up to their disappearance, with the aid of reenactments and interviews with their loved ones and investigators who worked on the case.
Each episode focused on a single individual, or sometimes several individuals who disappeared together. Some of the episodes featured have been solved over the years, but unfortunately many remain a mystery.
The Disappeared podcast is going to start from the beginning of the series, presenting an audio version of the episodes featuring open cases where the families are still looking for answers.
Each episode begins at the time immediately before the individual vanished, and chronicles the search for clues hidden beneath seemingly everyday behavior that may indicate what happened to the individual.
Three episodes of the Disappeared podcast will be released on August 5th, with new episodes being released on Thursdays. The trailer can can be found on Apple.
The Disappeared podcast will be available on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you listen to your podcasts. Full episodes of the television series are available on discovery+.
According to the FBI, there are now nearly 88,000 active missing persons cases in the US. The podcast will help get bring these missing persons cases back in the public eye, with the hopes that their stories will result in new leads or information to help find out what happened, and bring some amount of closure to their loved ones.
