It is every person's - particularly every parent's - worst nightmare.
For a loved one to walk out through the front door and never to return is one of the most heartbreaking, terrifying and harrowing experiences someone can go through.
Not to know the fate of a person close to you is simply agonising - did they choose to disappear, were they involved in an accident or did something even worse befall them?
Every day in the UK, a staggering 600 people go missing.
Most return within 72 hours of disappearing but there are still a large number that are never seen again.
In this compelling book, journalist Rose Rouse is granted exclusive access to the mothers, brothers, sons, wives, sisters and daughters of those who have vanished without trace. Take 19-year-old Eddie Gibson who went missing in Cambodia in 2004 - his courageous mother just wants her son back; or Tyler Blake, whose mother went missing when he was three - now eight years old, he desperately misses her and wants her back.
Rose shares in the turmoil that they have endured in their quest to be reunited with those who have disappeared from their lives.
