ALBIE Watts vanished from Albert Square and his mother Sharon Watts is left beside herself as she tries to retrieve him.
However, secrets always emerge in EastEnders and the boy's mother is getting closer to the truth about his kidnapping ordeal.
Three-year-old Albie Watts was taken away from Walford in a devastating twist and his mother Sharon (played by Letitia Dean) was thrown in a panic when a ransom was asked in exchange for his safe return.
Coming up next week on BBC One, the search for Albie continues in Walford as residents join the police in an attempt to track him down.
At No.43, Sharon conceals the £50,000 ransom note from the police as she fears for Albie’s safety but later reveals all to Kat Slater (Jessie Wallace) and Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).
The pair agree to lend Sharon the money to pay the kidnapper off, completely unaware of their identity.

Meanwhile, Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) fumes at her son Keanu (Danny Walters) and worries about the consequences of the fake kidnapping before secretly dropping a second ransom note detailing a time and location for the cash.
The pair have worked out a devious plan allowing Keanu to be more involved in the tot's life and they found the perfect culprit to frame in the form of Dorian Gates (Luke J I Smith).
Later on, Sharon reasons they must go along with the kidnapper’s wishes for fear they’ll hurt Albie but Phil suggests he’ll drop the money and deal with the low life that took him.
Keanu keeps up with the plan and refuses, wanting to do the drop, but Phil insists on going with him.
