The former partner of Olivia Newton-John mysteriously disappeared more than a decade ago, and now investigators claim he has been found alive and well in rural Mexico – where he lives with his new girlfriend.
Former cameraman Patrick McDermott and Olivia had been dating for nine years when he vanished in June 2005 while on an overnight fishing trip off the coast of San Pedro, California.
In November 2008 it was declared that Partick ‘most likely drowned’ after the Coast Guard launched an exhaustive search of the area in hopes of finding his body but had no luck.
Two months later, investigators claimed that Patrick had faked his own disappearance and was alive and well in Mexico.
Woman’s Day is claiming that new evidence confirms those reports that Patrick is living in Mexico with a European girlfriend.
Investigator John Nazarian told the publication: ‘It’s rumored he was with a German national. I spoke to people there. The girl he was travelling with was described as having a German accent. To come up with the conclusion that he fell off the boat, and allegedly no-one saw him fall off the boat, is the most preposterous thing I’ve ever heard in my life.’
Olivia has since gone on to find love again, marrying John Easterling, the founder and president of natural remedy firm Amazon Herb Company, in 2008.
