The Vanishing Women
- 1 Season
The Vanishing Women is an investigative television series in six parts. The subject is the disappearance of six women from the small city of Chillicothe, Ohio. Each woman was young, in her 20s or 30s; each woman also knew each other and had ties to the underground criminal side of Chillicothe. The women suffered much before their disappearance, living through abuse, prostitution and drug addiction. The show is well regarded for its sympathetic, nuanced portrayals of these individuals and their trials. Interviews with the families of the victims provide a window into the surrounding circumstances that led them down the paths they took.
