Charlie Sheen: 'I do not know where my children are'

Charlie Sheen being interviewed by ABC News for a Tuesday prime-time special. There continued to be much confusion Wednesday over what authorities did at Charlie Sheen's Hollywood Hills home the previous night and the exact location of his children.

Los Angeles police responded to Sheen's Mulholland Drive mansion Tuesday night after receiving a call from a security guard that the actor's former wife, Denise Richards, had arrived at the residence to check on their two children.

The children were not removed from the residence, and there was no report that they were endangered, according to two Los Angeles Police Department sources familiar with the call.

Officials from the L.A. County Department of Children's and Family Services could not immediately be reached for comment.

On Tuesday night, Sheen tweeted: "My sons are fine... My path is now clear... Defeat is not an option...!"

But on Wednesday, Sheen was interviewed on the "Today" show and said he didn't know where his children were. He said he'd received reports they might be in a hotel in Santa Monica but was not sure.

He suggested that his estranged wife, Brooke Mueller, had obtained a restraining order against him in L.A. court. Addressing her during the interview, he said: "Tell me where my sons are."

"At this moment on live television, I do not know where my children are, but I'm not panicking," he said.

In recent days, Sheen has conducted a series of headline-grabbing interviews after CBS halted his show, "Two and a Half Men," for the remainder of the season. Speaking to ABC, CNN and other news and radio outlets, Sheen ranted about having "tiger blood" in his veins and called his bosses "knuckleheads" and "AA Nazis."

The 45-year-old actor has long had a reputation for reckless behavior. He allegedly threatened his second wife with a knife, has been to rehab and landed in a hospital emergency room in January.

What is the difference between a certifyable crazy person that should be locked up and an Excentric that continues to do what they want as they want?

An Excentric has more than $12,000,000.00 in the bank, an Attorney on retainer and a Personal Assistant to explain their bizzare behavior. Well I guess Charlie Sheen is a highly qualified Excentric! He's like a parachutist that just jumped out of an airplane and has not figured out yet that he left his chute in the plane.

Sheen couldn't find his head if he had a MRI of his upper intestines.

He should only have supervised contact with his children and the sooner he fades from the spotlight, the better off the world will be. Such a waste.

Leave Charlie Sheen alone. His behavior is his and his alone. Let him express his opinions and live his life. He is hurting noone

The madness continues

Leave Charlie alone? It's not like he's avoiding media attention right now.

well its not like we have better things to worry about. Do you know how many of my friends go through stuff like this it dont make front page. So why must i be burdened with this? The world has enough problems.How do we find time to get involved with this CRAP.Really people get a life. I Hope you put this out there for people to read. Have a great day.
