Reporter Liz Hayes was involved in filming the attempt, the crew said
A 60 Minutes crew filmed another mother’s desperate attempt to seize her child in 2014, it has been revealed.
The incident was understood to involve a crew including veteran reporter Liz Hayes, Fairfax Media reported on Tuesday.
The operation was also understood to have involved a child recovery agency.
But the footage has never been put to air.
Sources said the child was extracted from Turkey in October that year.
A Nine Network spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia: ‘It has not and is not likely to go to air as it is a Family Court matter’.
A Family Court spokeswoman confirmed the matter is currently before it.
Last week, reporter Tara Brown and three crew members were released after nearly a fortnight in a Lebanese jail.
They were imprisoned after filming the group Child Abduction Recovery International attempt to ‘rescue’ Brisbane mother Sally Faulkner’s two children, Lahela, five, and Noah, three.
