Yes, from the previews it looks like they will be on Dr. Phil also.
So didn't they already say that Don and Candus were being truthful?
Right. CW has given us lots of events that happened between getting home from errands and the time when SW went missing.
There has been a new page added to the Well's website. The new page has links for missing children in Tennessee and also Nationally.
Missing Children | Find Summer Wells
I understand why we watch videos. I don’t necessarily understand why the Wells are posting these videos at such a late date.
I agree, some of these videos should have been posted in the beginning when SW first came up missing.
DW and CW depended too much on YT and SM. Way too many people have never heard about SW until now.
I think a lot of people have been speculating about the gag order. DW was on a YouTube video saying that he knows he’s not supposed to speak to the boys about Summer but he sneaks and does it anyway. So I’d speculate that’s why the gag order has been reiterated recently. I don’t know if it’s an approved video but I do have the link if needed.
Eh, the Wells probably don’t follow MP cases like many us on Webslueths to know all the things victim families can do to engage the public right away. Many families of the missing also put their entire faith in LE locating their loved one. They get a pass from me on not being timely, whatever that master handbook says one must follow.
They are again putting themselves and home out there and are well aware of the criticism of many, mostly social media. They are doing it anyway.
IIRC one of the videos showed a missing poster of Summer on the homes roof. I thought that was clever especially with the trespassing drone someone used on the property without their permission. Give them something to look at. IMO
Your Memory is like the Telephone Game
Self-reporting to make sure this educational report is okay.
A Traumatic Memory Can Be Near Impossible to Shake
But some past experiences can keep haunting you for years. Life-threatening events — things like getting mugged or escaping from a fire — can be impossible to forget.
I would count the day my daughter disappeared as a traumatic event.
I knew wouldn't be long. MOO
From the two summaries now posted on Dr. Phil's site it appears that both episodes will focus on the parents talking about being bullied in social media.
That plus two behavior panel guys saying what they already said in their own show doesn't sound very new and exciting unless there's more that isn't being advertised. At least Summer's face will be seen nation wide.
I've lost interest in the YT shows. Summer's relegated to the back burner while the parents' drama, especially Don's, remain the focus. How does that help? And if the Dr. Phil show is going to be an extension of that drama then I'll pass. Let me know if anything useful comes out. Thanks.

I'm so sorry!
I didn't know.
I meant Don and Candus experiencing trauma on the day Summer disappeared.
Hopefully, the show is just about bringing awareness of Summer to a wider audience and maybe offering the parents some professional help. I don't see how Dr Phil would be able to accumulate more than what we already know. LE aren't saying anything. The parents have told us everything they know and the Behavioral Experts have said they (Don at least - we haven't heard their analysis of Candus) are being honest.
I wonder if Dr Phil will ask them, since they felt bullied by social media, why they keep appearing on You Tube and posting (for DW) on social media. And DW continues to appear on various YouTube channels, very recently. An easy search on You Tube brings them up.
The Dr. Phil show was taped in October and there hasn't been any indication that the parents are receiving professional help. Of course Dr. Phil may have offered - or not.
And IIRC someone posted upthread that the behavior panel also claimed Don was telling the truth in his denial of SA on his stepsisters. If that's correct then they implied that the the women lied. Based on Don sounding sincere to them.
I do agree with you though that there's little that Dr. Phil will uncover that we haven't after 5 months. I agree that the best to come from the show is that it will bring awareness about Summer's case to a wider audience. I personally don't believe Summer is still alive but the show may jog someone's memory or even encourage them to come forward for the reward money. Someone knows something! MOO.
I think the poster was added in the video edit. If you check the video you'll see it's not there at the beginning of the footage.
ETA: Timestamp 1:18.
But if you don’t know what happened, it’s not really a memory…
