Fears are growing after another cold night with no sign of Jacob, and as the search continues, everyone's terrified that time could be running out. The villagers rally round, but Alicia falls apart when she's informed that a family liaison officer is on his way round. Leyla tries to support her sister, while David comforts Justin who's struggling to cope and blaming Alicia. Returning from a police press conference, the atmosphere between Alicia and Justin is brittle as he continues to accuse her of being a bad mother. Biting back that she's the one who's brought him up, Justin is incensed and blurts out that he's more right to Jacob than anyone - he's his natural father. Leyla pales as David looks at her in disbelief. Meanwhile, Rhona summons Marlon and Paddy and admits all she can think about is her baby and she doesn't think she can let it go now. Both men are thrilled and vow to stick by her. As she talks about the future, Marlon's elated he's going to be a dad and can't hold back his tears. Elsewhere, Hazel works out who her mystery benefactor is; Maisie gives Will a letter from Natasha and he angrily tears it up, shouting that he just wants his dad back; and Gennie informs a half-flattered Lisa that Derek seems to be holding a torch for her.
