I sometimes wonder what situations, what stories the word 'missing' covers, or what it means. I remember reading one man's memories from the First World War, how a shell landed, leaving him unscathed while his two companions simply disappeared into thin air, presumably blown to smithereens. But 'missing' means much more - especially if we compare wartime situations with those in civilian life, where people go missing every year. Has someone written about this, I wonder - a scientific study, or a collection of short stories?
