My life missing Why do people go missing and where do they go? Ciara Leeming speaks to one of the 180,000 people who are reported missing each year and the sister of another who has never been found.

Plus News, arts and entertainment, columnist Roger Ratcliffe on the need for more radical celebrities, Killing Eve star Fiona Shaw’s letter to his younger self, crossword, Sudoku and more.
