American Idol: Chikezie Eze claims wife disappeared’ over a year ago, abducted their children,

An “American Idol” alum is on a desperate search for his children after he alleges that his estranged wife abducted and disappeared with them more than a year ago.

Chikezie Eze, who appeared on the music competition show in 2008, says that his ex, Linda Iruke, deliberately went missing with their children.

Legal documents obtained by TMZ indicate that the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office has been authorized to investigate the alleged disappearance, noting that there is allegedly reason to believe that the children have been “taken, detained, and concealed” by Iruke.

“She completely disappeared. No one had seen her or heard from her — family, friends, her family. It’s been a long time, it’s been over a year and right now the courts finally saw fit to allow me to use the district attorney child abduction unit,” a tearful Eze told TMZSaturday. “So now I actually have some kind of recourse to try and find them. She’s cut everyone off, which is probably the thing that makes me the most concerned … I just want to speak on her family and how amazing they’ve been in this whole process. They’ve been so supportive — her siblings, her mom.”

Eze added that his ex’s mother even wrote a letter in support of him.

“We all want the same thing. We all want the kids to be safe, to be home.”

Eze urged anyone with information on the whereabouts of Iruke or their children to call the 213-257-2600.

Eze and Iruke’s split has been a contentious one. Just last week, TMZ reported that Iruke accused Eze of domestic violence and claimed that she was forced to move to a safe house in August 2017 to escape his alleged abuse.

A judge granted Iruke a restraining order against the singer.

Eze reportedly filed for divorce last May.
