It's terrifying to think someone could just vanish without a trace — but it's a disturbing reality that occurs all around the world. Now, helping find some of these people is the focus of a brand new "Dateline" podcast.
This has long been a focus for "Dateline," which has told the stories of missing people in a weekly digital series for the past eight years. Tragically, of the 400-plus missing persons cases "Dateline" has reported on, more than a third are still inexplicably gone. "Dateline" is now narrowing its focus and doing in-depth reporting on six missing persons cases in a new original six-episode podcast, "Dateline: Missing In America," premiering July 26 and rolling out new episodes weekly.
These missing people were brought to the podcast's attention thanks to members of the "Dateline" social community — and now "Dateline" wants listeners to to help them find these people and bring closure for their loved ones. Each episode will dive into the person's life and the circumstances under which they went missing, as well as a call to action with the local police tip line. "Dateline" correspondents Josh Mankiewicz and Andrea Canning will host the series.
Cases covered in "Dateline: Missing In America" include the disappearances of Daniel Robinson, Heidi Plancck, Keeshae Jacobs, Aubrey Dameron, Alexis Ware, and Dee Ann Warner.
So, how can you listen? The podcast is available for free on Amazon, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, and TuneIn. Episode 1 and 2 will debut on July 26, with new episodes rolling out on a weekly basis until August 23.
