SHOCK! Is Olivia Newton-John's missing ex living on a boat off Mexico?
The former boyfriend of Olivia Newton-John who vanished four years ago is still alive, claim private investigators.
Patrick McDermott, who had filed for bankruptcy shortly before he went missing, has been accused of staging his own death to clear debts.
Investigators for US show Dateline say they've tracked him down by setting up a fake website called findpatrickmcdermott.com.
They claim he has regularly logged onto the site in a bid to stay ahead of the search, giving away his location through his computer's IP address.
He is believed to be on a boat travelling along the Mexican coastline.
‘He's alive - there's no doubt in my mind, this guy's alive,’ says lead investigator Richard Klein.
‘The rule of thumb is always this - when you're running you are always looking over your shoulder and we're going to catch him looking at us.’
Olivia, 60, dated Patrick for nine years before he disappeared at sea in June 2005.
She is now married to 49-year-old millionaire John Easterling.
