Season 01, Episode 07 – “Episode 7”
A jeweller identifies the man who bought the pendant found in a grave dug for Lea Morel. The man is questioned, but he has an alibi for the night of the murder. Romain is given a bag of Lea’s possessions left at the race track and finds a USB stick with incriminating evidence.
Set in Lyon, the show traces the increasing trauma of the Morel family who fall apart when their 17-year-old daughter fails to return home from a night out. As the hours pass and the police investigation builds, The Disappearance explores every parent’s worst nightmare. There are similarities to Broadchurch in that the lead detective has a complicated backstory while the family members and friends each appear to be hiding something.
