It combines scientific exploration and analysis with dramatic reenactments to bring the viewers as close as possible to the events in question. Each episode focuses on a different mystery and involves several experts who investigate the subject from different angles.

Terry O'Quinn, famously known for his role in the hit television series Lost, serves as the show's host, bringing his expertise and charisma to the show. Additionally, the show features world-renowned experts and researchers in the fields of science, history, and technology, including the likes of James Meigs, a former editor-in-chief of Popular Mechanics Magazine, and Andrew Gough, a researcher, writer, and archaeologist.

The dedication of the Mysteries of the Missing team to unraveling complex and, in some cases, dangerous mysteries is evident. The topics range from legendary disappearances spanning hundreds of years, such as Amelia Earhart, to modern, more recent vanishing cases with no clear explanation, such as the sudden disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.

The reenactments used in the series often include actors and jaw-dropping effects to immerse the viewer in the mystery fully. However, the show's primary focus is on the experts who explore each case in depth, deducing possible explanations while exploring every plausible scenario.

The team of experts does not only rely on traditional investigative methods but also incorporates the latest innovative technology, taking the findings to the cutting edge. The series employs technology like radar, remote sensing, and satellite imaging to create a new perspective to how the world is viewed when investigating a mysterious disappearance.

Mysteries of the Missing is formatted with an open-minded scope that allows for hyper-realism when telling these stories. One particularly intriguing episode recounted the mysterious disappearance of a group of hikers in the Siberian wilderness. The show examined the facts as well as the myths and legends surrounding the area, presented alternative theories that gave an idea of what happened when the hikers wandered off the path. The experts involved offered intelligent explanations through thorough analysis, including reconstructing a complete replica of the human body for an experiment to prove their point.

The format of Mysteries of the Missing, coupled with the professionalism and dedication of each expert involved, sets it apart from other shows in its genre.
