          Twenty-two years ago, a 10-year-old boy went to the park with his mother and sister. They rode the carousel and played in the grass. His mom and sister left for what was supposed to be a brief trip to the store, but they never came back. Dr. Phil works to unravel this mystery. Follow the little boy’s heartbreaking search for the mother and sister who left him behind.



          Left and Forgotten

          When Michael was 10, life as he knew it changed forever. He has been searching for his mother and sister ever since with no luck. Will a private investigator have any new leads? 


          The shocking information Michael uncovers. 



          Finally Face to Face

          After new information proves valuable, Michael confronts the woman who left him 22 years ago. How does she react to meeting Michael? Does Michael get the answers he’s been looking for all these years? And, what question sets her off?


          “I feel like I’m in a Twilight Zone. I don’t even know what to think.”



          Rejoicing with Relatives

          Dr. Phil surprises Michael with two women who have been searching for him for over 20 years. 



          “Your family is kind of swarming back around you.” 



          Mom and Dad

          Michael was in and out of foster homes for four years, until Robert and Kelly took him in.  



          What motivated them to work so hard to keep Michael?
