Dan Walker on the cases and how to help in Vanished: The Search For Britain's Missing
British toddler Katrice Lee vanished from a supermarket on a military base in Germany in 1981 and she’s never been seen since. But now, as Vanished returns for a second live series, presenter Dan Walker is hoping that by featuring her on the programme, which appeals for information on missing persons, her family might finally get some resolution.
"It’s a parent’s worst nightmare," says Dan. "Being a parent of a missing child is the most crippling thing I’ve witnessed in other people. It’s the first thing they think about when they wake up in the morning and the last thing they think about when they go to bed at night, and they never stop. I can’t imagine what it’s like to live with that every day."
As in the first series of the live show, Vanished: The Search For Britain's Missing will appeal for information about people who have recently vanished but this time, each episode will also dig deeper into one historic case, including Katrice’s and Marcus Rigby, who vanished 28 years ago. It will also revisit missing chef Claudia Lawrence’s case. And Dan is optimistic that the appeals will yield results, as each episode last season led to around 40 calls to the programme’s hotlines, plus hundreds more to the charity Missing Persons.
"We’re proud that two of the people we featured were found safe as a result, one of whom was a 14-year-old schoolgirl,’ says Dan. ‘One single piece of evidence can change everything and give these families the answers or the closure they need."
