Hosted by actress S. Epatha Merkerson, the show is designed to put names and faces to people of color who have disappeared without a trace. Each episode tells the story of the missing person or persons, beginning with the day they vanished and the frantic searches by loved ones and investigators to find them. Episodes chronicle the investigations into their disappearances, and delves into the mystery surrounding the disturbing circumstances.

In its second season, Find Our Missing will continue its partnership with the Black and Missing Foundation. Inc. (BAMFI), to raise further awareness and attention for the plight of the missing.  Tvone.tv will use BAMFI’s alerts and latest updates about recent missing person cases, as well as other content supplied by the organization including tips on how to prevent abductions.

“TV One saw unprecedented response to this series which resonated strongly with audiences and the media in terms of how the issue of missing Black Americans has been traditionally addressed,” remarked Judkins. “We are pleased to partner once again with the Black and Missing Foundation to bring these compelling stories to our viewers and hopefully bring some closure to those struggling with missing persons in their lives and communities.”
