An unconscious Suzy is then rushed to hospital, where Leyla can’t help but feel guilty as she sits by her friend’s bedside. The police then admit that Callum has an alibi and that there’s no evidence to place him at the scene of the attack, all of which leaves Leyla having to tell Suzy once she’s woken that her assailant is still at large.
Leyla is then left upset and disconcerted when she starts receiving threatening messages from Callum.

And when Suzy subsequently discovers that Leyla’s missing, she and the family are left filled with dread…
