Changemyface works on missing kids show

September 23, 2009

A new TV series investigating the issue of missing children featuring families of those is currently being shown on Sky Real Lives and is also repeated on Sky One. Changemyface helped with their investigations to produce age progressions of how the children would look now, some of them as adults.

Lorraine Kelly meets the families and friends of those who have gone missing and uses dramatic reconstructions to retrace their last known steps. She also talks to the police, psychologists and charities who are trying to find out why and where these children have gone. The series looks beyond the shocking statistics, revealing the human stories behind some of these cases. Mixing interviews with filmed reconstructions viewers will find out more about the children themselves, meet the parents who are still searching for them and examine the circumstances behind their disappearance. The child may be a suspected teenage runaway,
a younger boy or girl feared abducted, or a minor who has just
disappeared without a trace.

In the UK it is estimated that there are over 100,000 instances of children going missing every year – one every five minutes. Some of those children missing have disappeared on more than one occasion and thankfully the majority are found within 48 hours. There are those that have been missing for months or years and their families are desparate to know what has happened to them. Children account for around two thirds of those reported missing.

The series looks at missing children of all ages and their stories. Many of the cases were high profile and the programmes look deeper into the headlines to highlight what happens when a child goes missing. The shows also features reconstructions of the events leading up to the disappearance and information from witnesses about what they saw.

The series is shown on Sky Real Lives (channel 278 or in HD on channel 243) on Wednesdays between 12th Augusust and 10th September 2009. It is then repeated the following Sunday at 11pm. The series is also being shown on Wednesdays on Sky 1 (channel 106) at 9pm
Further information can be found in the August edition of the Sky Magazine and by visiting the Sky Real Lives website.
