  • Summary

  • Please note: contains strong language and adult content. Please be advised that this show is an immersive audio experience. Listening on headphones is recommended. It may seem like sounds are coming from the sides or behind you.

    In the Western Australian wheatbelt, refugees Anushey, Shahab and their daughter find safety in the sleepy town of Nunich. But when their daughter disappears without a trace and the town is plunged into chaos and violence, their newfound sense of security is shattered. Suspicions flare, slurs are hurled and tensions rise. Suddenly, Nunich and everyone in it find themselves caught in a storm of media frenzy, political corruption and even terrorist threats.

    Then another little girl goes missing.

    Told from the shifting perspectives of a refugee mother, the town mayor, a local journalist and a weary detective, The Missed isn’t just about the race to catch a predator, but also to save a community's soul.

    This project is a work of fiction. Names, characters, companies and events are either the product of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, companies or events is entirely coincidental.

Gripping

Couldn't put this down - well written, constructed and performed. A brave look at racial tensions, with sympathy and dignity. Brilliant - thanks.

Totally gripping

This is a very sad and gripping podcast to listen to. It was well played and I managed to listen to it between mid-September and early October. I must recommend it.

Thought-Provoking & Striking

Showing how easy it is to have “simple “ motives of self interest, prejudice, ignorance and fear twist a tragedy into monstrous proportions.
Brilliant work by all involved

Super!!

I like this kind of stories, as if it’s a movie instead of just one spoken voice. Also very real and sensitive how the hurt was to miss there children.

Bleak

I do like an Audible drama, but this one was bleak, to say the least. Not sure I enjoyed it to be honest.

unable to hear this

if you have normal hearing this may be very good. unfortunately I only have 25% hearing and because this is more like a radio play than an audio book I just couldn't follow the dialogue due to all the background noise.
