A spokesperson for UPS has said that the company has located the mysterious package that Fox News host Tucker Carlson suggested had been deliberately intercepted because it contained “damning” evidence against the Biden family.

Speaking to The Daily Beast, the spokesperson said: “After an extensive search, we have found the contents of the package and are arranging for its return.”

“UPS will always focus first on our customers, and will never stop working to solve issues and make things right.”

In a bizarre segment on Wednesday night’s show, Mr Carlson alleged that his team mailed the documents from New York to Los Angeles after receiving them from a “source” on Monday, but that the bundle never arrived.

Without providing any further details or evidence, Mr Carlson said the “damning” documents had “vanished” en route, heavily implying foul play. 

Mr Carlson said a producer had shipped the documents to him from New York to Los Angeles via a “brand-name company” — not identifying UPS.

When they didn’t arrive, the shipping company told Fox News that their package had been opened and the documents had “disappeared”. 

“To its credit, the [shipping] company took this very seriously and immediately began a search,” said Mr Carlson, adding that they traced it back from the moment it was dropped off by the producer in Manhattan to 3.44 am on Tuesday morning.

“That’s when an employee at the sorting facility in another state noticed that our package was open and empty,” he claimed.  

Viewers had questions about why there was apparently only one copy of the evidence and why it was not simply emailed.

Political scientist David Rothkopf slammed Mr Carlson’s claim as “the dog ate my October surprise".
