So sad! Alaskan Bush People still hasn't returned to TV yet, so fans are left with using social media to get updates on the Brown family via Ami and Billy Brown's children. Their middle son Gabe Brown recently took to Instagram to share an update with his fans and he took the time to answer some fan questions — and he even admitted that he got emotional leaving Browntown.
Gabe posted a selfie and fans flooded the comments, asking him to pass on their well-wishes to Ami— whose cancer is now in remission — and one fan asked about when or if the family will ever return to their home in the Alaskan wilderness. "How [are] mom and dad doing hun [sic]?? Are you all every going back to Browntown? Just love how you all built the house. I so cried when you all left Browntown. It just hurt for the work you all have done there," one fan wrote.

Late nights make me happy that feeling that everyone you love is fast asleep and safe waiting in the tomorrow for you to catch up it's like the time inbetween and it's all mine that's how it seems anyway good night instafriends God bless us all and remember to make every tomorrow better love you all.
Lucky for that fan, Gabe actually responded and he opened up about his experience leaving everything he knew behind, and he also gave her a brief update on his family. "I too cried about leaving," he wrote. "We're all doing well, thank you."
Last year, his mom Ami was diagnosed with lung cancer and the entire clan had to leave their home in the Alaskan bush (aka Browntown) so that she could seek treatment in LA — which was hard on the children, especially because they have been raised in the wilderness without access to modern amenities and technology.
For a few months, the family lived in a lavish $2.7 million home in LA while Ami underwent chemotherapy and radiation. It's unclear if Gabe and the rest of his family are still living in LA or if they have returned to the bush, but it would make sense that the family would return to their lifestyle now that Ami is doing well and is cancer-free.
