Feldman made his comments in an interview with series host Mehmet Oz and in an on-air call that Oz identified as being to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The person Feldman identified could not be immediately located.

In recent TV interviews and online, Feldman said he planned to make an independent film that would bring to light child sexual abuse in Hollywood by telling his own, uncensored story and was fundraising for it.

Feldman gained fame in the 1980s with films including GremlinsThe Goonies and Stand by Me.

In a 2011 interview with the Daily Mail website, Feldman said he was “literally surrounded” by pedophiles as a young actor and claimed abuse was a rampant problem in Hollywood.
