Today the second episode of ‘The Missing’ Series Two is released across all podcast streaming platforms - listen below. This latest episode investigates the case of Natalie Putt, a seventeen-year-old mother of one who disappeared in 2003.

Last week the huge public response to Series One was revealed, with Missing People and Locate International working tirelessly to respond to new information provided by listeners. As a result of awareness raised on the podcast, Goldsmith’s University has assigned a specialist team to investigate the case of missing mother Lana Purcell, and a former police detective is now working with the police to explore a viable theory put forward by listeners in the case of Suzy Lamplugh. The show has also galvanised interest in cases including Charles Horvath-Allan and Bernadette Cooper, with a poster campaign taking place around the site in London where Bernadette was last seen. Many listeners are now also volunteering their specialist skills and knowledge to the teams at Locate International, and it is hoped that further breakthroughs will follow.

Created in collaboration with UK charity Missing People and community interest group Locate International, the first series of ‘The Missing’ entered the UK podcasting charts at Number One in true-crime and Number Two on the Apple UK podcast chart, receiving widespread critical acclaim from the likes of Harper’s Bazaar, The Observer, The Sunday Times, The Daily Mirror and Stylist. The first episode in this series explored the case of missing father Chad Gibson, while Series One examined the cases of Charles Hovarth-Allan, Katrice Lee, Bernadette Cooper, Andrew Gosden, Fatima Mohamed-Ali, Suzy Lamplugh, Lana Purcell, Anne Simpson, Tony Haigh and Esra Uryun. Listen to previous episodes here.

Today’s episode of ‘The Missing’ explores the case of Natalie Putt, who disappeared from Lower Gornal, Dudley in 2003. Natalie was seventeen and a mum to an eleven-week-old son when she disappeared from home, and despite extensive searches no concrete evidence has ever emerged in the case. An inquest held in 2019 concluded that Natalie was likely murdered, though how, and by whom remains unknown, as does her final resting place. This episode hears from her sister Rebecca, who still has hope that one day the family will have answers, and crucially, justice for Natalie.

‘The Missing’ is a Podimo podcast series produced by What’s The Story Sounds and made in association with specialists Locate International and Missing People.
