When Camille wrote to Dr. Phil, her niece, Darbi, had been missing for over a month – and it wasn’t the first time Darbi had disappeared.
In November 2015, Darbi ran away and became a victim of sex trafficking. Camille says she fears that nothing will happen to save Darbi’s life if Darbi’s parents, Janice and Wayne, don’t end their feuding and come together to help their daughter. Janice accuses Wayne of being a “Disneyland” father who took a back seat to parenting. Janice says she is convinced that Wayne’s absence is the reason Darbi started using drugs and running away. Wayne blames Janice for traumatizing their daughter because she is involved in a lesbian relationship. He claims Janice exposed Darbi to sex, drugs and porn, which Janice denies. Shannon, Janice’s wife, blames Wayne for Darbi’s overly sexual behavior. She claims he may have molested Darbi, causing her to seek out older men for drugs and sex, a claim he adamantly denies.
