“The First 48: Missing Persons” to premiere June 2 on A&E
A&E is set to premiere the new real life series “The First 48: Missing Persons” at 9 p.m. June 2.
The show, a spinoff from “The First 48,” will focus on the Chicago Police Department’s missing persons unit’s search during the first 48 hours of a missing persons case.
According to an A&E news release, the Chicago Police missing persons unit gets more than 17,000 calls each year and is one of the only major police departments in the U.S. that responds to every missing persons call immediately, and has also for the first time given unrestricted access to ongoing investigations.
The synopsis for the first episode, provided by A&E, is as follows:
Detectives Selles Morris, Laura Skrip and Jim Corcoran team up to search for a straight A college student. They uncover surveillance footage that shows the 19 year-old sophomore walking toward the lakefront, then disappearing. Their around-the-clock search comes to a shocking conclusion and just when they think they’re finished, Detectives Morris and Skrip have to pull double duty. Morris hunts down a father who vanished mysteriously, putting his own family in danger and Skrip has just minutes to save the life of a distraught missing woman who left a note threatening to end her life.
