Quote:"Whenever possible, the actual family members and police officials have participated in recreating the events. What you are about to see is not a news broadcast."
Trivia:The concept of the show is based on a series of three specials run on NBC in 1986. The success of these specials, which focused only on missing persons, led to an expanded focus and the creation of Unsolved Mysteries as we know it today. Does anyone remember the name of those three 1986 specials?
