Storyline

The story begins one hot summers day when Leanne Wellings is taking her two young children to visit her grandfather. She stops to buy flowers at a motorway lay-by but then inexplicably vanishes -- leaving her two small children waiting for her in her car -- lost and far from home. Her two small children then set off to find her only to go missing themselves. Their ordeal is captured on CCTV cameras and before long the family's heart-stopping trauma is not only a complex police investigation but a major national news story. Written by Anonymous

True Detective it is not......
8 July 2015 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

I know, I know...this was done in 2007 and 2010 long before the paradigm shift created by True Detective, Mad Men and Breaking Bad came along. The story line had me during episode 1 and then it turned into a soap opera. Do British people really whine that much? "Guess what they found under her nails? Carpet fibers". Are you kidding?? I kept waiting for a climax but all I got was another family member trying to win an award for crying! The grandfather was by far the worst in the crying department. Would Walter be crying into the camera instead of saying "I am the danger!" Eventually it became a parody, a joke, not worth continuing. It was all too cliché. Thank God for HBO.
