Writer/director Noah Buschel made a name for himself with "Neal Cassidy" and "Bringing Rain," and now he's back again for "The Missing Person." The film -- which will have its world premiere at the forthcoming Sundance Film Festival -- stars Amy Ryan, and Michael Shannon (fresh off his much talked-about "Revolutionary Road" performance) as a private detective hired to follow a mysterious stranger (Frank Wood).
