The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office has found audio recordings audio recordings of its interview with Corey Feldman in 1993.

Until Wednesday, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office denied that these recordings existed, and said that Feldman did not name anybody over two decades ago. In a container which included the original reports from the investigation, the Sheriff's Office located some detective working copies of audio recordings made during the investigation.

At the time, officials with the Sheriff's Office told Fox News that Feldman had not revealed any names. They said they can not mention the contents of the recording since it is a case involving the sexual abuse of a minor.

Now, Fox News reports, the Sherrif's Office says it's located copies of the missing files.
