Bam Margera’s brother has put out a message online asking everyone to keep their eyes out for him, seemingly worried for his safety.
He added: “I am trying to get them to ping his phone but as usual it’s a huge process and I don’t think we have that kind of time.
“If you guys could retweet this that would be really cool of you.
“Thanks for your help.”
The former Jackass star has had a well-documented battle with substance misuse, with TMZ reporting that he suffered another setback recently after being unable to see his kids, as well as his divorce from his wife.
Jess Margera, who also appeared in shows such as Viva La Bam and Jackass, as well as enjoying a successful music career, is clearly seriously worried for his brother’s health.
Last month, he penned an emotional post on Instagram in which he stated that his brother’s condition was really bad, even claiming that the 43-year-old is ‘dying’.
Jess wrote: “I hope none of you have to hurt as much as me right now.
“He is dying, and there is nothing I can do about it.”
In a series of tweets, Jess then elaborated further, stating that he may take legal action against his brother after he ‘attacked’ him.
The 44-year-old tweeted: “I might have permanent hearing damage from bams [sic] desperate lame ass little 'attack' while I was making coffee.
“If that's the case all of my bands upcoming touring income he will be sued for and I will f***ing win.
“I'm not a fun enemy to have.”
He later added: “I wasn't going to press any charges at all but his dumb a** lawyer and surprise s***ness talking him into trying to sue me for whatever fake bull**** they are drooling at him is going to cost him the little bit of $ he has left.
“Sorry it's just the way I am.
“If you stab me [with] a knife I will f***ing end you with a Conan the barbarian sword.
“Sorry not sorry.”
After that, he seemed to roll back much of that statement, tweeting: "Ok I officially retract all my recent sh*t talk and tough love, rumor has it Bam finally said enough is enough and agreed to go to treatment, if that is the case I am extremely proud of him.
"I knew he wouldn’t puss out and throw in the towel, it’s just not who he is.
"Let’s all keep our fingers crossed and hope he does the work.
"It’s long overdue and he deserves to get back on his A game."
Recently, Bam had turned himself over to the police following a manhunt that lasted five days.
Police had issued a warrant for his arrest, so he fled into the Pennsylvania woods.
Bam was later released on a $50,000 bail, pleading not guilty to the charges.
