Missing, Dead And Still Unsolved

(Starts at 8:00)

When her eldest daughter, Shannan, vanishes in a wealthy Long Island neighborhood in 2010, Mari Gilbert (played by Amy Ryan) sets out to find some answers. Inspired by Robert Kolker’s 2013 nonfiction book of the same name, "Lost Girls" (directed by Liz Garbus for Netflix) tells the story of the search for Shannan Gilbert, which ultimately led to the discovery of the bodies of nine young women (including Gilbert) who worked as prostitutes.
