Elisa Roberson - USA
The Missing Podcast travels to North America - and in this first episode we tell the story of the baffling and tragic disappearance of Elisa Roberson. Elisa was born in Nicaragua, but settled in Texas with her mother, in search of a better life. But her story comes to an end in August 1989, when she was aged just 13 - after she disappeared after setting off on a walk to meet a friend. Speculation has swirled ever since around exactly what happened. Fingers have pointed in multiple different directions. But the family and law enforcement feel they are no closer to getting the answers they crave. This episode hears from Elisa's younger sister Ruby. She reveals exactly what happened around the time Elisa vanished, and what's gone on in the decades since. She hopes that someone listening may be compelled to reach out to the authorities and end the families suffering. This episode is supported by Doe Network.

Steven Durand

Steven Durand
The first twenty-four hours of a missing person case are the most crucial. Its of vital importance that the authorities are working with the most accurate and up to date information in order to best direct their search efforts. Steven Durand was 31 when he went missing in Salford, in the North West of England. He was a mixed race man who walked with a limp, due to cerebral palsy. He had learning difficulties and mental health problems and was known to the local police as vulnerable. When the police first began searching for him, they mistakenly described him as white, later correcting the error but wasting valuable time and resources, looking for the wrong man. The last sighting of Steven was on October the 20th, 2018. He was captured on CCTV, wearing a black coat, and grey sweatpants, holding a can of fizzy drink that he then purchased. Salford was not an area Steven usually visited - his family have no idea why he was there. And they are yet to find out. Because that CCTV footage of Steven? It’s the last anyone ever saw of him.For more information on this case, and every episode from every series visit https://themissingpodcast.orgAnd to visit details of the most recent appeals - like the one you may have heard in this episode, please visit : https://missingpeople.org.uk/recentIf you want to listen to The Missing COMPLETELY ad-free, and help to support the show, then please subscribe to our channel.The Missing + is your home for the very best in true-crime podcasts.

Charlene Downes

Charlene Downes
The disappearance of 14 year old schoolgirl Charlene Downes is one of the most notorious missing person cases in UK history. When Charlene vanished from Blackpool in the North West of England in November 2003, it resulted in a media frenzy, one monetized by tabloids cashing in on rumours and exploited for political purposes by the far-right. In the two decades since she vanished, countless theories have been suggested and dozens of suspects put forward, including members of Charlene’s own family. Very few missing person cases have received such coverage and scrutiny, yet, today, her loved ones are no closer to learning what happened to Charlene that night, than they were over twenty years ago.For more information on this case, and every episode from every series visit https://themissingpodcast.orgAnd to visit details of the most recent appeals - like the one you may have heard in this episode, please visit : https://missingpeople.org.uk/recentIf you want to listen to The Missing COMPLETELY ad-free, and help to support the show, then please subscribe to our channel.The Missing + is your home for the very best in true-crime podcasts.

Sarm Heslop
Sarm Heslop was never afraid to choose the road less travelled. The 41 year old from Southampton, couldn’t bear the thought of spending forty hours a week in an anonymous office, chained to a computer. Which is why, in the spring of 2021, she found herself working on a catamaran on St John in the US Virgin Islands. Sarm was working as the boat’s chef, captained by her partner at the time. One night, whilst moored at the harbour, the pair went ashore for dinner and drinks. Their return journey, as they approached the dinghy that would get them back to the boat, was picked up by CCTV. A short while later, In the early hours of the morning on March 8th, the police received a panicked phone call, saying that Sarm had vanished. That footage, taken from the harbour, would be the last ever taken of her.For more information on this case, and every episode from every series visit https://themissingpodcast.orgAnd to visit details of the most recent appeals - like the one you may have heard in this episode, please visit : https://missingpeople.org.uk/recentIf you want to listen to The Missing COMPLETELY ad-free, and help to support the show, then please subscribe to our channel.The Missing + is your home for the very best in true-crime podcasts.

Marshal Iwaasa
All of us have things that we associate with the people that we love: a smell of perfume they wear; a taste of something they might cook; a personal possession which they once gave us, or which once belonged to them. When it comes to her brother, Marshal, what pops into Paige Fogen’s head is his truck. Marshall drove a dark blue, 2009, GMC SIERRA pickup. It was his pride and joy. Marshall and Paige had driven thousands of miles together in it over the years. The siblings had gone through a lot, and the truck represented their journey together, both physical and emotional. So when the truck was found abandoned and burned out, by a group of hikers in a remote wooded area near Pemberton, Canada, Paige’s reaction was visceral. What was the truck doing there in the first place? And most importantly, where was its owner: her brother? That’s a question Paige has been trying to answer, for over four years now. For more information on this case, and every episode from every series visit https://themissingpodcast.orgAnd to visit details of the most recent appeals - like the one you may have heard in this episode, please visit : https://missingpeople.org.uk/recentIf you want to listen to The Missing COMPLETELY ad-free, and help to support the show, then please subscribe to our channel.The Missing + is your home for the very best in true-crime podcasts.

Patricia Duncan
In many missing person’s cases, there’s a potential suspect, a clear motive, or a reason why the missing person might have wanted to vanish….But sometimes cases come along with none of that. Cases which feel like such a mystery, it’s hard to know what to think or where to start. Cases like that of 51 year old mother and grandmother, Patricia Duncan, who disappeared more than 20 years ago from a quiet seaside village on the coast of Scotland. From the outside Patricia lived a full life. She had 7 children and 11 grandchildren who she doted on. She was part of the local amateur dramatics group, and shared hobbies with her husband George. She had no known financial stresses, or mental health concerns. Yet, in 2002 as a huge storm raged outside, Patricia went missing from her home in the middle of the night. And no one in Patricia's family has heard from her since.For more information on this case, and every episode from every series visit https://themissingpodcast.orgAnd to visit details of the most recent appeals - like the one you may have heard in this episode, please visit : https://missingpeople.org.uk/recentIf you want to listen to The Missing COMPLETELY ad-free, and help to support the show, then please subscribe to our channel.The Missing + is your home for the very best in true-crime podcasts.

Nancy Moyer
In season seven of The Missing, we’re examining, for the first time, missing person cases outside of the UK and Ireland. Today’s episode takes us to the United States, and the city of Tenino, Washington. That’s where Nancy Moyer, a 36 year old mother of two, who worked at the department of ecology, lived. When her daughter Sam thinks of her, she imagines Nancy smoking on the porch of her house. She recalls her enjoying a glass of wine in the kitchen. She remembers the feeling of her mother’s arms wrapped around her, after she’d crawled into her bed. But she also can’t forget the day, in March 2009, when she arrived at her mother’s place with her father and sister and Nancy wasn’t home. Her cigarettes were in their usual spot on the porch. Her wine glass was on the living room coffee table. The front door was ajar and Nancy Moyer was nowhere to be seen. Fifteen years later, Sam is still searching for her.For more information on this case, and every episode from every series visit https://themissingpodcast.orgAnd to visit details of the most recent appeals - like the one you may have heard in this episode, please visit : https://missingpeople.org.uk/recentIf you want to listen to The Missing COMPLETELY ad-free, and help to support the show, then please subscribe to our channel.The Missing + is your home for the very best in true-crime podcasts.

The moment when a child enters adulthood is a tricky time for every parent. Do you get involved when they make mistakes, or in a bid for independence, do you let them figure it out themselves? For Anthea Langelaan, this question was one she grappled with endlessly. Every time she reached out a helping hand to her son, Cian, who lived in a small village in Donegal, Ireland, he would refuse all offers of assistance or guidance. Eventually, she made the tough choice to simply let him go his own way. Until tragically, one day in September 2020, she received the earth shattering news that her child was missing.For more information on this case, and every episode from every series visit https://themissingpodcast.orgAnd to visit details of the most recent appeals - like the one you may have heard in this episode, please visit : https://missingpeople.org.uk/recentIf you want to listen to The Missing COMPLETELY ad-free, and help to support the show, then please subscribe to our channel.The Missing + is your home for the very best in true-crime podcasts.
