Olivia Newton-John has spoken out about her missing boyfriend.
The ‘Grease’ actress admits she is still devastated over the disappearance
of Patrick McDermott - her partner of nine years - and is hopeful the
rumours he has been seen in Mexico are true.
She told Australian TV station Channel 9: “It’s very distressing for
everyone in the family. We miss him and love him and we’d be thrilled if it
The 48-year-old cameraman was believed to have drowned during a fishing trip
last June in San Pedro, California.
After his disappearance, it was revealed McDermott had mounting debts and
speculation was rife that he had “faked” his own death to escape bankruptcy
and a possible prison sentence over unpaid child support to his ex-wife,

McDermott was reportedly seen in Mexico’s Baja Peninsula just two weeks ago
and one witness even claims to have spoken to him.
A US grand jury is currently preparing to launch an investigation into the
cameraman’s mysterious disappearance.
