“Find Our Missing” premieres on TV One Jan. 18; Tulsa woman to be featured
“Find Our Missing,” a 10-episode, one-hour docu-drama series that puts a spotlight on finding missing black Americans debuts at 9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18 on TV One.
“Find Our Missing,” hosted by Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actress S. Epatha Merkerson, (“Law & Order”), is designed to put names and faces to people of color who have disappeared without a trace, according to a news release.
The story of Althedia Vaught, a 41-year-old grandmother-to-be from Tulsa, is featured in the second episode, scheduled to air Jan. 25. Vaught was seen leaving her house late one night in January 2009 wearing her pajamas and hasn’t been seen since.
Each episode will tell the story of the missing person or persons, starting with the day they vanished and the frantic searches initiated by loved ones and investigators to find them, while sharing insight into the victims’ lives, as well as chronicling the investigations into their disappearances and delving into why the search for them has been unsuccessful so far.
Contact information will be provided on each show for the specific police and local FBI offices handling the cases covered for anyone who may have information about the missing.
In information provided by TV One, the premiere episode features stories of two people who disappeared in 2009:
- Pamela Butler, a 47-year-old Program Analyst at the Environmental Protection Agency, mysteriously disappeared from inside her Washington, D.C. home despite an elaborate security system. Her boyfriend was the last person to see her.
