Oxygen Media, the network for high-quality crime programming, premieres “Up and Vanished,” based on the hit investigative podcast of the same name with over 240 million downloads that put a national spotlight on the small town mystery of Tara Grinstead. The special, premiering Sunday, November 18 at 7PM ET/PT, will focus on the mysterious disappearance of Tara, a Georgia beauty queen and school teacher who went missing in 2005, and where the police investigation is today in the aftermath of Payne’s groundbreaking podcast.
In this special, Payne Lindsey and his team will pick up where the podcast left off, which was with an investigation that lead to the arrest of two men who plead not guilty and are still awaiting trial. Combining chilling stories with cinematic storytelling techniques, this citizen sleuth will scrutinize alibis and double check reports, as him and his team stop at nothing until they find the truth, leading to new discoveries and insights on the case of Tara Grinstead.
"Up and Vanished" is produced by Propagate Content and Tenderfoot T.V.
