“90 Day Fiancé” star Paul Staehle’s family is worried something terrible has happened to him while traveling throughout Brazil.
Staehle’s mother, Edna Staehle, told TMZ that the reality star sent alarming texts to their family Thursday morning and has not been heard from since.
Edna said Paul, 40, had messaged her saying he needed help because he had gotten lost and gave her contact information for people who might be able to assist, but she never heard back from the group.
One of the people Paul asked his mom to contact was a woman named Izabele Medeiros, who later took to Instagram to publish a statement translated from Portuguese to English.
“hello everyone I can’t give much information because we don’t have anything concrete to tell we are looking to find out where Paul is,” she began, adding that they have to “wait a certain amount of time” before contacting police.
“this is not a joke,” she continued. “I was lost until messages arrived telling me everything.”
Celebrity blogger John Yates shared screenshots of the texts Paul sent Edna, with permission from her, which showed him purportedly writing that he “f–ked up.”
He also told her he needed a boat and that his phone was about to die so he would lose GPS.
Yates also tweeted Friday afternoon that he spoke with Paul’s wife, Karine Martins, who said police were going to get involved.

On Thursday, Martins, 27, shared an emotional Reel of photos featuring Paul and their children with a caption cryptically written in the past tense: “💔 Not all of our memories were bad. Our children loved you very much. We will never forgot you or the good memories we all shared.”
She added on her Story, “Paul went missing last night in Brazil. Prayers he is found safe.”
Last summer, Paul and his then-3-year-old son, Pierre, returned home to Kentucky after a police bulletin announced they were missing.
The TLC personality met up with his parents in a park to turn over Pierre, whom he and Martins had lost custody of after their abusive relationship came to light.
He told TMZ at the time that he handed over Pierre to Edna and his father because he did not want to have to “deal with the drama” of Child Protective Services.
The missing person’s report was then closed.
