Olivia Newton-John's missing boyfriend spotted in Mexico: reports

An 11-year-old unsolved mystery may finally be resolved, as reports claim that Patrick McDermott, the longtime boyfriend of Olivia Newton-John who disappeared in 2005 during a fishing trip, has been spotted alive.

A private investigator tells Woman's Day that McDermott is alive and well and living with a German girlfriend in Sayulita, a remote village in Mexico. "Patrick's probably now working in the yachting industry for a high-profile family down there," investigator Philip Klein said.

Newton-John and McDermott dated on-and-off for nine years before his disappearance. At the time of the incident, Newton-John was at a spa retreat in Australia and has refused to comment on any speculation about what happened to him.

A 2008 U.S. Coast Guard investigation suggested that "McDermott was lost at sea." That same year, Newton-John wed her second husband, John Easterling, to whom she is still married.
