Missing in Action
Missing in Action is a Secondary Quest in The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. Secondary Quests are optional Quests not required to finish the game. Some of these quests may have a bearing on certain Main Quests or may be a consequence of another Quest.
Missing in Action can be obtained by collecting the notice off of the Notice Board west of the Woesong Bridge in White Orchard or by speaking to Dune Vildenvert marked with a yellow exclamation mark south-west of the Ransacked Village. In this quest, Geralt is tasked with aiding Dune in finding his missing brother, Bastien Vildenvert.
As it turned out, Geralt was not alone in searching White Orchard for a lost loved one. The witcher also found the notice of a peasant who was seeking his brother. The brother had left home to take up arms against Nilfgaard. The forces of the North and the Black Ones had then clashed in great battle near the brothers' home village, and the peasant had not heard from his brother since. Geralt was far from the only person in White Orchard looking for a lost loved one. War had divided many families, including that of a certain villager whose brother went missing after the last big battle. Geralt was short on time but still agreed to help. You're surprised, dear reader - but you shouldn't be. The witcher might seem grumpy at times and downright cynical at others, but he rarely passes by another man's misfortune without seeing what he can do to help.

Walkthrough for The Witcher 3 Missing in Action
If you discovered the quest by collecting the notice off of the Notice Board in White Orchard, you would first need to find Dune Vildenvert. He can be located talking next to a dog outside a destroyed house in the Ransacked Village. Speak to Dune and he will explain the situation with his lost brother, Bastien Vildenvert. He promises a reward if you decide to aid him in the search for his brother.
If you agreed to help him, Dune will ask you to meet him on the battlefield. You can follow him there at once or you can meet him there whenever it's convenient for you. Once you reach the battlefield, speak to Dune. He will explain and advise that you may recognize his brother by his patterned shield. You will encounter a few Ghouls in the area while you're searching for the patterned shield. Once you find a burnt corpse, inspect it and the dog, Hussar, will pick up a scent. You can follow the dog and it will lead you to an abandoned cabin. You will find Bastien there, with severe injuries, having a conversation with a wounded Nilfgaardian soldier named Rhosyn.
Bastien then explained how they both helped each other reach this abandoned cabin after they got badly wounded, he demands Dune take Rhosyn home with them. While Dune is having second thoughts about taking in a Nilfgaardian soldier, the fate of Rhosyn will be up to your hands.
If you decide it's too risky to harbor a Nilfgaardian soldier, Rhosyn will be left to die in the cabin.
If you convince Dune to help Rhosyn because he helped Bastien, then you can find him later living with Dune and his family.
But if you managed to encounter Rhosyn and Bastien before speaking to Dune, Dune will only help Bastien and no other option will be given to save Rhosyn as well.
