The Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed it is investigating a report filed by former child star Corey Feldman.
The Goonies and Stand By Me actor said on Tuesday he had informed the LAPD of the names of "very powerful" men who abused him as a child in Hollywood.
On Wednesday, the LAPD confirmed it had received the report and it was investigating.
"Officially the first formal report ever taken on any of my cases," Feldman tweeted.

OFFICIALLY THE 1ST FORMAL REPORT EVER TAKEN ON ANY OF MY CASES, AS SBPD NEVER FOLLOWED UP BACK IN 1993, & HAS NO RECORD OF MY COMPLAINTS.
The 1980s teen idol has vowed to expose at least six names of men involved in a "paedophile ring" which he claims operates in Hollywood and were responsible for abusing him and his late co-star Corey Haim almost 30 years ago.
"Right off the bat, I can name six names, one of them who is still very powerful today," Feldman said in a crowdfunding video posted in October.

"In a story that links all the way up to a studio - that connects paedophilia to one of the major studios," he added.
Feldman, who started acting when he was three, has long claimed that both he and Haim were abused when they were underage, and that it led to Haim's drug abuse and subsequent death in 2010.
The pair starred together in the film The Lost Boys, and became a TV sensation in the 1980s show The Two Coreys.
Now, Feldman has launched a TRUTH campaign to fund a documentary produced, directed and distributed by him, in which he will reveal the names of his abusers.
The money, Feldman said, will be enough to cover the production and distribution of the film, but also to hire a legal team to protect him against possible lawsuits.

"I've been silenced my whole life but just over the past few days since I've made the announcement, I've been arrested, I had a near-death experience last night where I thought I was almost going to be killed," he said in the crowdfunding video.
"Two trucks came speeding at me at the same time on a crosswalk. And then several of my band members have decided to quit because they were fearing for their lives.
"I'm very alone, but I need to protect myself and I need to protect myself and my family. I need additional security and I need a legal team to help represent me so I can fulfil this mission."
It is unclear whether the US statute of limitations could affect possible prosecutions on Feldman's case, and the LAPD has said there is "no further information at this time".
