Police are having no luck finding Huxley, the 5-year-old boy who was "rehomed" by Youtube vlogger Myka Stauffer and her husband James.

YouTube viewers lashed out at the couple after they gave up their adopted son because his autism and other special needs made him too difficult to handle.

The couple adopted Huxley from China in 2017 when he was 2-years-old.

The state of Ohio launched an investigation into the case, and the police are now involved because the boy can not be located in Ohio.

"We're very aware of this case," Tracy Whited, Delaware County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman, told BuzzFeed News. "We are investigating, but it is an active case, and as such, we cannot divulge too much information just yet."

Buzzfeed confirmed that Huxley is not being cared for by the state of Ohio. The county sheriff's office said it's working with "several other agencies" to find Huxley.

Fans of the couple's popular YouTube channel began asking questions after pictures of the boy were removed from their Instagram account and they acted like he never existed.

The couple was criticized for exploiting Huxley for profit on their YouTube channel. According to Today, major brands cut ties with the couple following the intense backlash. Brands including Playtex Baby, Danimals, Suave, Chili's, and Big Lots have announced they will no longer partner with the Stauffers.

In response to the constant questions, the couple, who have four other children, recorded a video explaining that Huxley was "rehomed" with another family who could better address his needs.

The Stauffers said "numerous medical professionals" told them Huxley would need a "different fit."

"We've been trying to get his needs met and help him out as much as possible." James Stauffer said.

The backlash continues over a YouTube star who "rehomed" her Asian adopted son because the 3-year-old's special needs issues were too complex for her to handle.

YouTube viewers lashed out at vlogger Myka Stauffer and her husband James after they gave up their adopted son, Huxley, because his autism was too much to handle.

According to Today, major brands bailed on the couple following the intense backlash. Brands including Playtex Baby, Danimals, Suave, Chili's, and Big Lots have announced they will no longer partner with Stauffer.

Myka and James earn thousands of dollars a month on YouTube.com. Their revenue increased when they documented the difficulties trying to adopt baby Huxley from China in 2017.

In a post in 2017, Stauffer wrote that she knew he was "profoundly developmentally delayed" beyond what was detailed in the adoption paperwork.

After 3 years of documenting Huxley's every move, the Stauffers quietly stopped including him in social media photos, and went on with their lives as if he never existed.

In a tearful video - in response to her followers demanding to know where Huxley was - she claimed she wasn't aware of Huxley's autism or a newly diagnosed brain cyst.

The Stauffers' followers accused the couple of using little Huxley to create content for profit, then "rehoming" the boy with another family when they could no longer monetize him.

TV personality Loni Love may take her relationship with boyfriend James Welsh to the next level by adopting a child with him.

In a recent segment of daytime talk show The Real, the 48-year-old co-host said she is considering adopting because 24% of children awaiting adoption are Black.

"You know what, there are 135,000 children that are adopted in the United States each year. For African-Americans children, they are overrepresented in the adoption pool. 24% of children, African Americans, are waiting for adoption. The population for African-Americans is only 13%. So, it's double."

Loni said her busy career and lifestyle might make it difficult to adopt a child. She also said adopting a child is a "very expensive" process.

"The thing about it for me is I would seriously have to think about it. One thing which might not be an issue for me, but it's expensive to adopt. It's very expensive. But also, more importantly, it's about my lifestyle. I travel a lot. I would need some help. But I am thinking about it."

Loni is still getting to know her boyfriend, James, whom she met on a dating app in August 2018.

"He's a really nice guy," she told PEOPLE magazine exclusively in April. "He hit me and I was like 'Wow, he has really kind looking eyes'."

In addition to comedy and acting, Loni is an electrical engineer who once worked on the General Motors assembly line in her native Detroit, Michigan.
