The Gentleman

This extraordinary story is a current live investigation. When a body was found floating in the North Sea in July 1994, it was German police who began an investigation – they learned that the man was in his 40’s or 50’s, smartly dressed, and he became known as ‘The Gentleman’. But despite extensive investigations, they couldn’t identify him, and the man was buried in a un-named grave. Now – working with Locate International, the German Police are re-investigating. They believe that the clothes the man was wearing indicate he’s likely to be British. This podcast is part of a major publicity drive to try and shed new light on the identity of The Gentleman.

Introducing: Smoking Gun

In every murder investigation, there's one key item which could bring a killer to justice. But finding it....and knowing what evidence it contains....well that's the challenge. Because the smoking gun could be anything. A bouquet of flowers...a Chinese meal...a mosquito. In this series – Produced by the makers of ‘The Missing’, we tell the remarkable true stories of how everyday items such as these have been the key to unlocking a criminal case. And we unpack the science - revealing the cutting edge techniques and the disciplines mastered over decades, which allow specialist forensic scientists to find this evidence. Hosted by actor Romola Garai, and the UK's most prominent forensic scientist Tracy Alexander.

Lee Boxell

Lee was 15 year old, when he was last seen in September 1988, on Sutton High Street. His case is one of the highest profile missing children’s cases – a young lad who had told his parents he was off to watch a football match, but who never returned home. It’s a case which has links to known paedophiles, an extensive nationwide campaign, and a determined effort from Lee’s family to find answers.

Hidden From View

What constitutes why some missing persons cases get attention? What are the criteria for a case making national news? And why doesn’t EVERY case receive the same coverage? In our final episode of the series we explore the issue of equality - and ask whether your background or the colour of your skin can influence how your case is reported and investigated. At a time when the subject of race and equality is being discussed in relation to missing persons, we shine a light on why some cases fade into the background, and ask what can be done to make a change.

Georgina Gharsallah

When someone goes missing, it’s often the ‘last sighting’ which is used to try and ascertain why they went, where they went, and what happened to them. But in this case, exactly what IS the last sighting is a part of the debate. Georgina Gharsallah has been missing since 2018 – a young mum who had endured some challenging times – but who had little reason to disappear. The days leading up to her disappearance were chaotic. And the last sighting on the morning gave no clue to where she went. But a second potential sighting, uncovered over a year later, poses a host of new questions. So why DID Georgina disappear? Where could she have gone? And who was responsible? The latest episode of The Missing hears from Georgina’s mum Andrea, and explores her life, the days before her disappearance, and the theories around what happened next.   If you have information on any of the cases covered in the podcast, please visit [TheMissingPodcast.org] (https://www.themissingpodcast.org/) , where you can find contact information as well as contribute and discuss on the Locate International forum.    The Missing is a Podimo podcast series hosted by Pandora Sykes, produced by What’s The Story Sounds and made in association with investigation specialists [Locate International] (https://locate.international/) and the charity [Missing People. ] (https://www.missingpeople.org.uk/) See Privacy Policy at [https://art19.com/privacy] (https://art19.com/privacy) and California Privacy Notice at [https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info] (https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info) . ...
