Rebecca 'Becca' Winstone's teenage son mysteriously disappears. Becca is determined to let nothing come between her and her mission to find him. Becca, a retired CIA agent, uses all available facilities in her worldwide search for her missing son. When her son, Michael, was a preteen, he witnessed his father's death by explosion in a car bomb. Michael's father, Paul Winstone, was an active CIA agent at the time of his death. There is concern that Michael's disappearance may be related to his parents' involvement in the CIA.

Along the way, Becca discovers the truth about her ex-husband and her former lover, an Interpol agent. She also discovers that she is in the middle of an international conspiracy involving her former lover and the CIA.

The story begins as Becca is running her flower shop with her business partner and friend. Michael tells his mom that he's been accepted into an architecture program in far-off Rome, Italy for the summer. Becca reluctantly consents. After a week with no further word from her son, she receives a call from the school informing her that Michael has mysteriously moved out of his dorm. Concerned, she travels to Rome to try and locate her son.

Once there, she discovers that Michael has been kidnapped to France and is likely being held for ransom or political leverage. In France, Becca strategically gets arrested so she can confront the deputy chief of French Intelligence, Antoine Lussier. After meeting with him, she makes a deal to deliver a hard drive he seeks containing damaging information about him. In turn, he will use his official position to find her son. It turns out that the hard drive is actually a real person with damaging knowledge and information about the deputy chief.

Becca and Harddrive work together to discover the truth behind the deputy chief's motives. In Lussier's computer she discovers that Lussier has curiously scheduled an emergency flight to leave soon. She rushes to the site and sees her son being forced onto the plane. A subsequent CIA intervention and inspection of the plane reveals no Michael.

Becca follows clues to try and locate her son who, it is soon revealed, is in Russia. In captivity, he meets a girl, Oksana. Oksana was put there to gain his trust. However, they soon become allies and escape their joint captivity.

Along the way, Becca discovers that her ex-husband's death by explosion was staged. He is very much alive. Together, they work to find Michael.

A trusted friend of Becca and Paul Winstone, Martin Newman, who was also Becca's CIA mentor, is eventually revealed to be the force behind Michael's kidnapping. After Becca and Paul discover that information, they pursue him. Finally, Becca has a showdown with Newman on the top of a Turkish temple and kills him.

In the end, the reunited Winstones are in Prague for a vacation. Becca walks to the car to retrieve something. While there, another car causes a crash that involves Becca's car. The camera shows that the other car is driverless. Becca's car has blood on the seat but Becca is missing.

From the first episode to the tenth, final episode, international intrigue, high adventure and fast action are the major elements of this one-season wonder on ABC.

Missing is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (55 episodes). The series first aired on March 15, 2012.
