90 DAY Fiance star Paul Staehle’s sons have been taken into the custody of Child Protection Services.
It comes after he went missing along with his three-year-old son Pierre, whom he shares with his ex-wife Karine Martins, 27.
Paul, 39, and Pierre have returned home to Kentucky after a police report filed them as missing since June 9.
The reality star told TMZ that he drove back to Louisville on Saturday July 3.
Paul met with his parents in a park where he gave them his son, claiming he didn’t want to face Child Protection Services.
The parents then contacted CPS, who took Pierre to the foster home where his younger brother Ethan is.
