From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:08 pm on 18 November 2013

Fifty-three thousand Americans who fought in the Pacific during the Second World War are still listed as 'missing in action'. Journalist and author Wil S Hylton was with one of the J-PAC dive teams off the island of Palau when he stumbled upon the story of a man who has dedicated much of his life to finding missing aircraft from the era and area. His book 'Vanished: The Sixty-Year Search for the Missing Men of World War II' follows the search.
