In 1995, John Clark came home from work to find his wife, Eileen, missing from their New Mexico home. Also gone were their three young children, ages 2, 5 and 7.

All John found was a cryptic note that said they were going on vacation — but he never heard from his family again.

Eileen was placed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, and John was relentless in his search for his family.

After 15 years of working with private investigators, lawyers, and the FBI, John finally received word. By this point, the story had captivated audiences around the world.

Eileen and the kids were alive and well… and living in London!

Then it became a case of he said, she said. While Eileen claimed she was escaping an abusive husband, John denied the allegations and expressed fury over the fact he’d missed out on 15 years of life with his kids!

John has since reunited with two of his children, who are now adults. See more in the video from Dr. Phil below.
