Jesse Scolaro and Allen Bain of The 7th Floor, Lois Drabkin of Apropos Films and Alex Estes produced while Ryan and Jason Orans served as executive producers.

'We are excited to be working on The Missing Person with film-makers of such a high calibre,' Tron said. 'Noah is a real talent and has created a film with such style that it stood out to us immediately. We are also pleased to be able to acquire the film for worldwide sales prior to Sundance, as it will allow us to market the film in a cohesive manner and present it to buyers in Berlin.'
