Q: Status of the manuscript - ScholarOne

Detailed Question -

After 3 months with an "Awaiting Referee Report" status in a ScholarOne Manuscripts journal, the new status changed to "Awaiting AE decision" and in the same day back to "Awaiting Referee Report". Did the AE send the paper to more referees? Or/and he/she will also make a review for the paper? Or it is something else?
