Though we thought the search for the main characters’ son would be a season or series long plot, Fox’s Alert: Missing Persons Unit surprised us in the premiere episode.
The police procedural stars Scott Caan as Jason Grant and Dania Ramirez as Nikki Batista. The two work in private security and as Head of the Missing Persons Unit (MPU) at the Philadelphia Police Department, respectively. The now divorced couple have been searching for their son Keith, played by Graham Verchere, for six years. And the first episode of the series had the parents already reuniting with him. Though, is that really Keith or someone pretending to be? That’s the real question that will be explored.
It’s an interesting take on a procedural drama and definitely a great series to check out in this midseason schedule. So if the series sounds interesting, you’ll want to know how to tune in. We’ve got the answer for you below!
How to watch Alert: Missing Persons Unit on TV and online
Alert: Missing Persons Unit is a broadcast series. It airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Fox. And though the network doesn’t have its own streaming service, that doesn’t mean you can’t watch the drama online.
There are two ways to do that. If you miss any episodes live, then you can watch episodes on the Fox app by signing in with your television provider credentials. But if you want to go the streaming route, then you can watch the series on Hulu.
The streamer costs $7.99/month with ads or $14.99/month with no ads. The no ad tier doesn’t have commercials for most movies and shows, but some may be excluded from this. New episodes of Alert are added to Hulu the next day they air on Fox. Installments will be available to watch on the streaming service on Tuesdays.
