MISSING: An Interactive Thriller is an FMV puzzle/adventure game developed and published by Zandel Media for PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Android.

Only the first episode of the game was available at launch in 2014, with further episodes said to be sold separately later on. However, in the years since the first episode, no further releases were announced and the project is evidently abandoned, no longer even being available for purchase on Steam.

In the first episode players take on the role of David Newcastle. David wakes up chained to the ceiling in a basement with no recollection of what happened to him. David must solve the puzzles set by his captor in order to escape and get back to his family.

While David is trying to escape, Detective Sam Lambert is trying to uncover the truth behind a series of mysterious disappearances. This includes trying to find the whereabouts of David.
