Actor James Nesbitt is being replaced by David Morrissey as the lead in the second series of drama The Missing, which has started filming.

Cold Feet and Hobbit star Nesbitt starred in the first run in 2014, winning acclaim for his portrayal of a desperate father seeking the truth behind the apparent abduction of his five-year-old son.

Although Nesbitt will not be returning, French actor Tcheky Karyo is reprising his role as investigator Julien Baptiste.

The new case follows Sam (Morrissey) and Gemma (Keeley Hawes), whose daughter Alice went missing in 2003.

Eleven years later, Alice, played by newcomer Abigail Hardingham, is found stumbling through the streets in Germany.
