The sheriff's office previously said it didn't have the records Feldman had referred to, but after Feldman publicly claimed that he went to the police department to share his story, they have now found the aforementioned tapes, but will not release them because the case is "exempt from release".

The "Stand By Me" star launched a project this year called The Truth Campaign aimed at revealing secret's in Hollywood.

Feldman, 46, had claimed in a Today Show interview with Matt Lauer that he "sat down and I gave them names". They said they can not mention the contents of the recording since it is a case involving the sexual abuse of a minor.

The former child actor claimed in October that he had given the names of sexual predators in Hollywood to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office in 1993 during their invesigtation into Michael Jackson's molestation charges.

In an interview on Today on October 30, Feldman said he had revealed names of men who had allegedly sexually assaulted him as a child actor during an interview with police in 1993.

Santa Barbara Sheriff's Office public information officer Kelly Hoover emailed a statement to Fox News that said, "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".

Feldman has long complained about the interview, saying that police ignored his claims of sexual abuse in Hollywood and ignored the names of the people he mentioned.

'This guy on his My Space page and his Facebook page has got pictures of me and Corey Haim, ' Feldman said during the interview.

The sheriff's office said that the recording is being turned over to the Los Angeles Police Department. When Feldman appeared on the Thurs, Nov. 2 episode of The Dr. Oz Show, he named his former co-star Jon Grissom as one of his molesters.

He also took his story to the LAPD, which confirmed it was investigating Feldman's claims and then nearly immediately closed down its investigation.

He also mentioned the name Marty Weiss, a Hollywood child talent agent, when he was interviewed by Megyn Kelly on "Today", around the same time as the Oz interview.

He was earlier seeking to raise $10 million but is now only seeking $1 million to make a small budget version of his original concept, according to his Indiegogo campaign page.

Far from convinced, the talk show host then urged Feldman to report them to the Los Angeles Police Department right there and then, which Feldman did.
