If you have seen the movie Missing, you will think about a crime documentary, but is it actually based on a true story?

This movie just made its Netflix debut, and it is a mystery-thriller film starring Storm Reid as a teenager who is sent down a disorderly online hole after her mom goes missing while on holiday with her new boyfriend.The film is a sequel to Searching, and Nicholas D. Johnson and Will Merrick direct it.

Now, the moment of waiting. Is it or not Missing based on a true story?

Well, the answer is no. The movie is not based on a true story. The same can be said about its predecessor, Searching, a fictional film.Even if Missing is not based on a true story includes features and scenes inspired by the digital era we’re living in. Another reason it seems like a real story is that the movie is set on a computer screen, meaning it’s a screen-life movie with notifications for WhatsApp, social media playing through, and messaging.

Reid had a conversation with Screen Rant about the challenges of this format:

It was very challenging. I had never filmed something where it’s all taking place on the computer, so [there’s] different eye lines and making sure all the technical aspects were correct.

  • June Allen: Storm Reid
