Missing’s ending, explained
A young woman talks on her cellphone in Missing.

The sleeper hit movie of 2023, and soon to be one of the most popular movies on Netflix, doesn't involve superheroes or possessed demons like in Evil Dead Rise; instead, it focuses on a young teenager who uses all of the technology at her disposal to find a lost relative. Missing is a sequel of sorts to 2018's Searching, which told a story about a father (John Cho) who is desperate to find his missing daughter. It became a surprise critical and commercial hit and was praised for its unique way of telling the entire story through a computer screen.

While set in the same world, Missing tells a new story about a teenage girl (Storm Reid) who quickly realizes her mother has disappeared under very strange circumstances. Utilizing the power of social media and Google, she tries to track her down while also uncovering some mysteries about her past. If you are interested in having Missing's ending explained, you've come to the right place!
