Lauren’s oldest sibling, Blake, describes what it was like growing up with her little sister being kept in a closet – away from the rest of the family.

Blake says hearing Lauren cry, she was able to sneak her food “a couple of times,” when their parents weren’t around, “I knew what it felt like to be hungry… but I…I just… She needed me, and I did it.”

In this second installment of an exclusive two-part Dr. Phil, Blake describes the guilt she says she still feels for not rescuing her little sister. This episode airs Thursday.
