He later returns to Cash, who warns that Vita Nova may know about the page and insists they need to wrap Justin up on the case.

There is a breakthrough in the search for Andrew’s mother when a woman called Esther Lawrence shows up at the police station asking to see her son.

The news panics Marilyn, and fearing for Alf’s safety, she tries to convince him to leave Summer Bay earlier than planned.
