For the first time in eighteen months, there have been official sightings of Marokopa man Tom Phillips.

He's been missing since December 2021 with his three children, Jada, Maverick and Ember.

The children's family is extremely worried about their welfare - in June, their sister Jubilee Dawson told Mihingarangi Forbes of TVNZ's Mata programme she believes this will have damaging impacts.

Joining us now is Dougal Sutherland, a clinical psychologist at Victoria University.
