He and Eitan's mother, Diana Huynh, met in 2000 and were married in 2006. They lived in Madagascar for a time and Michael then said that if Huynh left him he would flee with Eitan. He was served with divorce papers and made the same threat, although Huynh continued to allow him to have access to his child. A felony warrant was issued for himl on November 3, 2008. An FBI warrant for international parental kidnapping has also been issued for him. He is known to have taken Eitan to Mexico City and flew from there to Germany. They may have been seen in Yemen, Ethiopia, Thailand and Malaysia; Eitan was reportedly treated at a hospital in Malaysia in October 2009. In April 2009 he used his myspace account to send messages to the US Marshalls, claiming that he did what was right and his son was in no danger. They are still believed to be in Malaysia. Eitan is considered at risk; his father has threatened to harm himself and his son if his mother tries to find them.
