Huxley Stauffer, the 4-year-old child who was “rehomed” by his adoptive family, is now the subject of a police investigation.
Quite simply, authorities don’t know where he is, Buzzfeed News reported.
Myka Stauffer, mom vlogger and Huxley’s one-time adoptive mother, announced last week that she and her husband James had decided to find a new home for Huxley, who is autistic. The Stauffers had adopted Huxley two years ago from China.
But the cops are intrigued by Huxley’s disappearance from the Stauffer home in Ohio.
"We’re very aware of this case," Tracy Whited, Delaware County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman, told BuzzFeed News. "We are investigating, but it is an active case, and as such, we cannot divulge too much information just yet."
Buzzfeed confirmed that Huxley is not being cared for by the state of Ohio. The county sheriff’s office said it’s working with “several other agencies” to find Huxley.
The Stauffers said they were concerned for Huxley’s privacy in last week’s video, and did not disclose his new home.
In that video, the Stauffers, who have four other children, explained their decision to place Huxley, who has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder level 3, in another new home.
“With international adoption, sometimes there’s unknowns and things that are not transparent on files and things like that,” James Stauffer said. “And once Huxley came home, there was a lot more special needs that we weren’t aware of and that we were not told.”
The Stauffers said “numerous medical professionals” had told them Huxley would need a “different fit.”
“We’ve been trying to get his needs met and help him out as much as possible.” James Stuaffer said. “There’s not an ounce of our body that doesn’t love Huxley with all of our being,”
The Stauffers were roundly blasted on social media for the decision.
