Actor Garcelle Beauvais returns to Lifetime this weekend for the premiere of Black Girl Missing, which she also co-executive produced. The film is her second for the network and like her last, Caught in His Web (2022), is another in the network's Ripped from the Headlines series that hit close to home. In the film, Beauvais portrays Cheryl Baker, a school vice principal whose life is upended when her eldest daughter, college student Lauren (Iyana Halley), disappears following a heated argument. At first, Cheryl believes she's receiving the silent treatment, but she eventually realizes that no one has heard from Lauren in days. With little aid from the authorities, Cheryl and her youngest daughter Marley (Taylor Mosby) make it their mission to uncover the truth and raise awareness of their plight.
