Wagner shared some great news later in the day, tweeting, “Harrison’s been in touch. He’s 21 and in charge of his life. Thank you for the love and prayers. Please continue to share your struggles, it helps us all.”
Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, GENERAL HOSPITAL; ex-Nick, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) has revealed that Harrison, his 21-year-old son with ex-wife Kristina Wagner (Felicia, GH), has been missing for nearly a week!
“I’m going to ask those who want to share their fears, addictions and struggles to do so with me via Twitter,” the actor wrote. “We can face them together. I’ll start.
“I fear for my youngest son’s safety,” Wagner continued. “Harrison has struggled with drugs and alcohol just as I did when I was younger. He’s relapsed and is MIA five days.”
Fans quickly responded with heartfelt messages of love and support via social media, which he greatly appreciated. When one agreed with how difficult it can be as a parent to watch a child stumble, Wagner replied, “I’m okay with stumbles, it’s how hard they fall that gets me.”
Back in May, just after completing filming on his new Hallmark Channel movie, The Wedding March, Wagner shared a photo of himself and Harrison happily enjoying dinner at a steakhouse.
Our thoughts go out to Wagner and his entire family during this difficult time, and we hope Harrison is found safe and sound very soon.
