In the village, his dad Al and brother Billy are thrown when they find his room at the B&B hasn't been slept in.

And when Belle mentions she last saw Ellis with Cain, the pair's concern turns to panic.

But when Al confronts Cain, the Dingle trots off a cover story and washes his hands of the whole thing.

It's back to the drawing board for Al – but he just can't ignore his niggling doubt that Cain must know something about Ellis' whereabouts.

Acting on his hunch, Al heads to the hospital…
