Tareq Salahi has issued a statement asking the public for help as he apparently believes Michaele was forced to make the calls.
"We are reaching to the public pleaing [sic] desperately for your help."
"It is our belief as of last night, that Michaele Salahi may have been kidnapped or abducted and being held under duress and forced to tell persons, including authorities she is okay."
"We are asking the public to please be on the look out for her, and if found please contact the authorities and please approach her and contact the authorities to intervene and that she may be forced to say she is okay, when in fact she is not and being held under possible abduction.
The Salahi family can be reached at 540-635-9933."
According to TMZ the Warren County Sheriffs Department are not releasing any information. CNN writes that the sheriff and the FBI have not commented on Salahi's concerns.
The Salahis are planning to reopen their Virginia winery, after its assets are auctioned off at a September 18th auction. The plan is to reopen the winery with an "invitation-only party that will be filmed for a 'major reality show' in development," according to Tareq.
UPDATE: TMZ- COPS: Michaele Salahi was NOT kidnapped
Michaele Salahi was NEVER abducted ... so say police in Virginia ... who claim Michaele has contacted law enforcement and told them she DID NOT want her husband to know where she was. The Warren County Sheriff's Dept. just released a statement saying one of their deputies spoke with Michaele and "She seemed calm, was engaged in conversation, and assured the deputy that she had left the residence with a good friend and was where she wanted to be."
The WCSD adds, "Mrs. Salahi advised that she did not want Mr. Salahi to know where she was." Cops say Michaele expressed she was "very sorry" that the Sheriff’s Office had to be involved, but "she did not want to be home right now." Read the rest at TMZ.
UPDATE: TMZ now reports Michaele Salahi is with Neal Schon, the lead guitarist for the band Journey. In a surreal turn of events, TMZ now writes: "...we've learned Michaele has been dating the rock icon, went to his show in Nashville last night and is currently with Schon in Memphis, where Journey is set to perform with Foreigner.
