Payne Lindsey’s groundbreaking “Up and Vanished” podcast helped crack open a very cold case — and on Nov. 18, Oxygen’s “Up and Vanished” special will show how Lindsey did it.
“No more silence. No more small-town secrets,” Lindsey says in the new trailer, which you can watch above. “If somebody does know something, then I’m trying to find out.”
Spoiler alert: He did.
Lindsey’s investigation of Tara Grinstead’s disappearance in the first season of “Up and Vanished” helped lead to two arrests. Ryan Duke has been charged with murdering her, and his friend Bo Dukes is accused helping move Grinstead’s body. Both men have pleaded not guilty.
Season 2 of the “Up and Vanished” podcast focuses on the disappearance of Kristal Anne Reisinger in Crestone, Colorado, a spiritually minded mountain town with fewer than 150 residents.
The “Up and Vanished” podcast has earned a stunning 240 million downloads, and gained widespread attention for Lindsey’s Atlanta-based production company, Tenderfoot TV, which is also home to the hit “Atlanta Monster” podcast.
Oxygen’s “Up and Vanished” special will premiere on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 7 ET and PT.
