The show's synopsis reads: “Eleven years ago Detective Kat Donovan’s fiancé Josh – the love of her life – disappeared and she’s never heard from him since. Now, swiping profiles on a dating app, she suddenly sees his face and her world explodes all over again.

"Josh’s reappearance will force her to dive back into the mystery surrounding her father’s murder and uncover long-buried secrets from her past.”

A filming picture of Eleazar in action was unveiled by Digital Spy last week, as she is seen walking down the street.

Missing You comes hot off the heels Coben adaptation Fool Me Once, which became a huge success upon its debut earlier this year.

Netflix is also working on another Coben adaptation with Run Away, which follows a dad whose daughter runs away from home. His search takes him "into a dangerous underworld, revealing deep secrets that could tear his family apart forever".

Missing You will stream on Netflix. Fool Me Once is streaming now on Netflix.
