Investigation Discovery announced today its groundbreaking television series DISAPPEARED is being released as a podcast. During its nine seasons, DISAPPEARED told the stories of individuals who vanished seemingly without a trace. Some cases told over the course of the show’s run culminated in joyous reunions or heartbreaking discoveries, and ultimately, closure for the families – but that is sadly not the case for every story. Now, DISAPPEARED will start from the beginning of the series and present an audio version of the TV show featuring open investigations where families are still searching for answers. Three episodes of DISAPPEARED will be released on August 5th, with new episodes dropping weekly on Thursdays. Listen to DISAPPEARED on Apple, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. Fans of the TV series can watch episodes streaming now on discovery+.

Each episode of DISAPPEARED 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. The podcast serves as a new outlet to help bring these missing persons stories back to public attention, in the hopes that bringing their stories forward could result in fresh leads or new information to decipher the truth of what happened to the missing person.

DISAPPEARED is produced by Investigation Discovery with Marissa Lucy as Executive Producer.
