EastEnders is returning with a bang next month as the soap returns with brand new storyline arcs. BBC One viewers will tune in to see current Walford residents still living with their many skeletons in the closet and tip-toeing around the truth, while a few newcomers will be causing mischief. Ahead of the show making a comeback, fans have been speculating as to what’s in store, and it seems a new plot delving into the the rarely-touched subject of a person disappearing has been mentioned. Could one family end up torn apart after a child leaves the Square without a trace?
A Reddit user created a thread, titled: “Future storylines”.
“Share your suggestions for storylines you would like EastEnders to do and explore with characters or events,” they asked.
Their second idea was about someone going missing.
It read: “This one will be heartbreaker storyline.
“A resident on Albert Square will soon find out one of their relative has gone missing and a search party is made by the community to find that person.
“[Their] status as alive or dead isn’t confirmed as [their] location and fate remains unknown,” the comment continued.
“It will be a gritty storyline, nearly all of Albert Square will get involved to help find [the missing person].
“[They are] never heard from again in order for EE to highlight real life disappearance cases.
“This will also introduce a new police detective that works alongside Jack called Mary, whom could be a potential love interest for Jack in the future too,” it concluded.
So who could feature in this new storyline?
Keegan Baker (played by Zack Morris) had plans to leave the EastEnd earlier this year.
Following a bout of bad luck, he decided to pack up his things and have a fresh start, choosing to head off with his mother Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley).

But following Sharon Mitchell’s (Leitia Dean) change of heart, the young man decided to stick around.
While he was present in the Square, he wasn’t present in his marriage to Tiffany Butcher (Maisie Smith).
She no longer knew where there relationship stood, and with their future in turmoil, there is a good chance Keegan may still leave.
However, this time round he may not tell anyone of his plans to vanish.
According to Missing Person’s UK, someone is reported missing every 90 seconds.
And the charity added 176,000 people are announced absent every year.
Should EastEnders take on this storyline, it would really highlight a problem many families face.
EastEnders airs Mondays at 8pm and Tuesdays at 7.30pm on BBC One.
