It looks like Leah may have no choice but to marry her kidnapper Douglas on Home and Away...

And since nobody knows where she has been since vanishing from Summer Bay weeks ago, it looks like Leah will have to go through with the SHOCK wedding!

Luckily for Leah, her boyfriend Justin Morgan (James Stewart) hasn't given-up hope.

Not fooled by the cryptic phone call, in which Leah told Justin she had left town of her own free will and he should stop looking for her, Justin pressures policeman Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin) to help him with his search.

Justin is annoyed the police haven't done much to find missing Leah. Will Colby step-up and help Justin's search on Home and Away?

Against his better judgement, Colby "accidentally" leaves a police file lying around for Justin to read.

Armed with new information that could lead to Leah's whereabouts, Justin races off in search of Leah.

But will he find her in time to STOP the wedding?

And when Jasmine keeps pushing the issue, Willow snaps and an argument breaks out at the Beach House!
