Francisco Garcia’s father, Cristobal, up and left his family when Francisco was just seven years old. Unemployed, suffering drink and drug addictions and adrift in life, Cristobal decided he would rather disappear altogether than carry on dealing with the problems in front of him.
And that’s what he did, leaving his young wife and child in the dead of night. He has been missing ever since.
Missing People are a huge issue in the UK. Often unreported and misunderstood, it is an issue that blights every social group, but clusters, sadly and unsurprisingly, in the mentally ill. From being a victim of being left behind himself, Francisco instinctively understands the problem and has written this powerful, moving and important book as a way of trying to make the issue more understood. In a journey that takes him all across Britain and back to his father’s homeland of Spain in a quest for answers, Francisco meets, talks and befriends missing people and the families leave behind and reveals the underreported truth about this growing and difficult issue.
