Actor Corey Feldman asked the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) to reopen his case after his claims that he had been sexually abused as a child saw new evidence. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office reportedly obtained audiotapes from 1993 on which Feldman names the individuals who allegedly abused him, building what seemed to be a strong case for Feldman.

Writing on Twitter, Feldman tagged the handle of the LAPD and said: "TIME 2 REOPEN THAT CASE @LAPD I DID REPORT IT WITHIN THE STATUTE, SO NOW IT SHOULD B (sic) ADMISSIBLE RIGHT?" He also provided a link to a report by USA Today which stated the tapes were found.

The former child star from "The Goonies" and "Stand By Me" alleged in a "Today Show" interview with Matt Lauer that he "sat down and I gave them names. They’re on record. They have all this information." In November, he filed a report with the LAPD after publicly naming some of his abusers on "The Dr. Oz Show."

The LAPD in November dropped its investigation into Feldman’s allegations that a pedophile ring had terrorized young actors in Hollywood in the 1980s. The reason stated was that "too much time" had passed since the alleged abuse took place.

Feldman also claimed in October that he had given the names of sexual abusers in Hollywood to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office in 1993 while they were investigating the molestation charges against Michael Jackson.

The Sheriff’s Office, however, denied those claims until Wednesday and maintained they had no records of Feldman revealing such information, until now.

According to news.com.au, the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office stated it had handed over the tape to the LAPD, it was not immediately clear whether it had resulted in the reopening of the case.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office public information officer Kelly Hoover told various publications on Tuesday night in a statement:

"Following the recent inquiries into the Sheriff’s Office interview of Mr. Feldman in 1993, the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office conducted an additional review for any stored items remaining from the Michael Jackson investigation. 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. A copy of Mr. Feldman’s interview was located. The recording is being turned over to the Los Angeles Police Department. Due to the fact that this case involves the alleged sexual abuse of a child, we are unable to comment further and any documentation or evidence related to this case is exempt from release."

Meanwhile, Feldman tweeted on Wednesday saying he would make the tape public himself if the authorities did not do so.

"I WAS RUMMAGING THRU MY GARAGE & CAME UPON THE OLD CASSETTE COPY THE SBPD MADE 4 ME! I HAD NEVER RELEASED IT, BUT NOW I WILL! MAYBE THERES STILL HOPE...." he tweeted after news broke that the tape was found.
