90 DAY Fiance’s Paul Staehle has said that he and his son Pierre are not missing after the police launched their investigation.
Paul, 39, spoke to TMZ to deny the missing claims.
The 90 Day Fiancé star claimed the whole situation was “a big misunderstanding.”
The TLC star acknowledged there was a bulletin released from Missing People in America, which pictured him and his three-year-old son.
Paul denied the allegations that he supposedly kidnapped and ran off with his child.
The reality star claimed to have been on a “long work trip” with his son.
Since June, he has been traveling between Pennsylvania and Florida in order to find work.
Paul brought Pierre along with him because he claimed his son suffers from extreme separation anxiety – which is when a child worries a lot about being apart from a family member, according to Cedars Sinai.
The TV star admitted to the publication that he will be returning to Louisville with his son.
Paul planned on regaining custody of his children, Pierre and Ethan, 16 months, by going to court.
