According to the Daily Mail, Patrick McDermott, Olivia Newton-John's former boyfriend who disappeared without a trace several years ago, has contacted a private investigator via fax, telling the investigator that he's fine, but wishes to be left alone.

The private detectives claim that they've been contacted by "representatives" on McDermott's behalf, who ask that the investigation cease, as McDermott does not wish to be found. It is suspected that McDermott faked his own death, for financial reasons. Newton-John, meanwhile, has moved on, marrying John Easterling just over one year ago. [DailyMail]
