The film, announced by ITV this week, will cover the man's disappearance in December of 1992. Clark was last seen on a walk with his mother, Doris, near their home in Redcar, North Yorkshire.

The 23-year-old was later reported missing and the case soon went cold, before being reopened officially last year. Parents Charles and Doris were later arrested on suspicion of murder, before being released. They have denied any involvement in their son's disappearance.

Accused of Murdering Our Son: The Steven Clark Story will follow the couple after they are arrested and consider how the case has affected their lives for the past 28 years.

The film will also feature Mark Williams-Thomas, the ex-detective who was involved in exposing Jimmy Saville's sex crimes against children.

Doris and Charles, who have since been cleared from having any involvement in their son's disappearance, have said that they are now hoping to move past the case and get on with their lives.

The film will follow the couple in present day, while featuring old stories and photos of their son. Doris will also recall the tragic accident that occurred when Steven was hit by a lorry, aged three. The accident left him with severe damage to his left arm, his leg, as well as a limp.

Doris said: "He was so different from the little boy before the accident to how he was when he came home, so we just worked as hard as we could to get him better."

Mark Williams-Thomas, said: "Over 17 weeks I followed Charles and Doris whilst they were accused of the murder of their son.

"My approach was to be totally impartial, my questioning direct, as I unpicked their accounts and explored the possible scenarios around Steven's sudden disappearance.

"It's a compelling real-life story, providing an intimate insight to the unique experience of this couple that is as close to a crime drama as you will ever see on television."

Accused of Murdering Our Son: The Steven Clark Story will air next month.
