LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office is reporting a man who had been missing since July 10, 2015 has been found and is safe. Deputies are reporting 41-year-old Shane Paul Gaudin Sr. was at a camp off the Amite River near Tiger Bend Road.

Just after 1 a.m. Tuesday, Ascension Parish Deputies arrested 21-year-old Shane Paul Gaudin Jr. on one count of obstruction of justice in connection to a missing person complaint.

Jr. was a person of interest in the disappearance of his father.

Sheriff Jason Ard says, "Gaudin, Jr.’s arrest was pursuant to his actions - as well as statements - he made earlier to family members concerning his missing father." 

Ard adds, "During the afternoon hours of July 14, 2015, Shane Paul Gaudin, Sr. made a call to a family member advising that he was alright and was coming home.  We learned that Gaudin, Sr. had been staying at a camp off the Amite River near Tiger Bend Rd. in East Baton Rouge Parish."

LPSO Detectives met with Gaudin, Sr. at his residence and found him to be ok. 

Sheriff says, "After talking with Gaudin, Sr., it is believed that he initially left relative to personal problems he was having at home and needed sometime away." 

Gaudin, Jr. will be released from the Livingston Parish Detention Center.
