The title Missing Women refers to only one woman, who is perfectly visible throughout most of the proceedings. Penny Edwards is cast as young bride Claudia Rankin, who hopes to avenge her husband's death at the hands of car thieves. To achieve this goal, Claudia goes "undercover," posing as a hardened criminal. She manages to infiltrate the stolen-car gang, proving her value by pulling off a couple of heists herself. Inevitably, she gets in over her head, and is about to be rubbed out by the crooks. Will the police, who haven't exactly been on top of things in the previous reels, be able to rescue Claudia in the nick of time?
