She bought a ticket on the first bus out of town - and disappeared . . .

In her early twenties Shelley had a good job with prospects. But, having to support her nan and family, she got into debt, suffered a breakdown and lost her job, as the world closed in. One day she got on a bus and hours later got off in a strange city with nothing but the clothes on her back. She knew no one, but felt free at last - just before discovering that being lost and alone meant being vulnerable.

In the years that followed, Shelley lived anonymously in refuges, hostels and on the streets. She felt trapped by her decision to run and the lengths she was forced to go to in order to keep her identity and location secret.

But it was the momentous choice to get in touch with her family which proved to have the deepest consequences . . .

Missing is the powerful true story of why one young woman vanished without trace - and what made her choose to come back.
