NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Without a Trace (2002—2009) is a crime drama that aired on CBS. It revolves around the cases of the Missing Persons division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in New York City.

The show typically opens with a brief scene with the victim up until the last time they are seen, and then they fade out. A running tally of hours passed since the disappearance is shown throughout the show. Accounts from suspects and witnesses are presented as flashbacks.

Without a Trace is kept fresh because there are many possible reasons for the person to have vanished, from a kidnapping, to a personal quest, to being a murder victim, and many more. Sometimes the missing person is even found partway through the show, and the investigation shifts to something else. Sometimes there is a happy ending, and sometimes there is tragedy, and the most interesting part of the show is that you don't know which it will be until the end.
