When Shia LaBeouf said "I do" to Mia Goth on Oct. 10, both his mom and Mia's were in attendance. One person not present, however, was his father, and there might be a reason for that.
According to the Daily Mail, Jeffrey LaBeouf is on the run from California police and likely living in Central America.
The newspaper exclusively reports that Shia's dad has been on the run from law enforcement for nearly three years after violating his registration requirements as a convicted sex offender. And, while official records show that his location is unknown, the outlet says it knows exactly where he is.
Jeffrey has been living in a fishing town near Montezuma, Costa Rica, the report says, with pretty valid reasons to back up that fact. A man purporting to be Shia's father even started a Facebook account and his photo doesn't look all too different from the one on the sexual offender's registry.
On his Facebook page he reveals he is working as a teacher, claiming "I'm teaching art." In the profile, it states that he is single, retired and has a son named "Honeyboy."
The Mail alleges that social media posts show Jeffrey boasting to tourists in the area that he is Shia's father during nights out at hotels in the region.
His Facebook location, per the report, says that he lives in a tiny fishing village of Cabuya, in the district of Nicoya Peninsula.
Jeffrey's whereabouts have stumped authorities for years. Although Megan's Law requires law enforcement authorities to make information available to the public regarding registered sex offenders, Jeffrey's profile has been erased for some reason, further stumping authorities.
Reporters at the Daily Mail contacted the Californian Attorney General's office and confirmed the department "has no record of Jeffrey's new location and are unaware of any specific reason why he would be removed from the register."
Jeffrey was arrested for "assault with intent to commit rape" in 1981, according to the Department of Justice. The crime involved a minor.
Shia hasn't spoke about his father much, but did refer to both his father and Mia's father in speaking about his Las Vegas nuptials (although there is no record that he and Mia got an official marriage license).
"Dad's couldn't be there," he told Ellen DeGeneres in speaking about the wedding video, "so it was nice to have them there in a way."
