Television Search For The Missing

Television Search For The Missing

A major television company is offering to help friends and family find missing people.

Eyeworks says the new 10 part series it is producing for TV3 will help re-connect people who have lost contact with each other.

“We are looking for those magic stories - the one’s which will bring a tear to the eye,” says researcher Wendy Colville.

“It might be a heart wrenching family re-union, it might be a rescuer who saved someone’s life or it could also be as simple as finding the teacher, the rugby coach or even the policeman who inspired a youngster to succeed and that person was never thanked.”

Colville says a theme emerging from the research is the number of children who are desperate to find a parent who has lost contact with his or her family following an acrimonious divorce.

In one case the father, several years after the split up, sent a card to his daughter telling her he was in England and that he missed her – “but the mother made her destroy the card and now she does not know how to contact her Dad.”

The daughter is just about to have a baby and wants her father to be part of his grandchild’s life, says Colville.

The programme will be screened on TV 3 and contact details can be found on the TV 3 website: To contact Eyeworks direct email or call 09 379 7867
