"Patrick McDermott, Olivia Newton-John’s missing boyfriend, is alive."

Sources close to the case have told Tabloid Baby that McDermott staged his death because of financial troubles, and that he has been sighted numerous times since his disappearance, in the Baja California region of Mexico.

This explosive news was uncovered over the weekend at the 60th annual Fred Hall Fishing Tackle & Boat Show in Long Beach, California, just miles from where McDermott was last seen on a charter fishing boat.

Representatives of the 22nd Street Landing in San Pedro, and its popular Freedom sportfishing boat, were staffing a booth at the show. Two of them (not those pictured) told Tabloid Baby that police told them McDermott is alive.

“Oh, he’s definitely alive,” one source said. “There have been sightings. Lots of them. He’s been seen in the Baja. In Todos Santos.”

Todos Santos is a quaint town on the west coast of the lower Baja peninsula, about one hour north of Cabo San Lucas. Its mostly dirt streets are home to over 6,000 inhabitants, including artists, surfers, and retirees. While it has attracted more residents and tourists, the town generally has escaped the influx of tourism.

Patrick Kim McDermott had boarded the Freedom fishing charter on June 30, 2005 for an overnight fishing trip. A marina manager claimed that some passengers saw McDermott disembark the next day.

He was reported missing on July 6 by his ex-wife. On July 11, relatives found his car in the parking lot at the San Pedro Marina. It was later discovered that McDermott left some of his belongings on the boat, including his wallet.

The U.S. Coast Guard is treating this as a missing person's case, but said it is looking into the possibility that McDermott may have faked his disappearance because of financial problems, and a court battle with his former wife, actress Yvette Nipar.

Olivia-Newton John has come under great criticism and scrutiny because she did not report her alleged boyfriend of nine years missing, nor acknowledge his disappearance for seven weeks— when journalists discovered her connection to the missing man.

Newton-John's silence-- and public appearances during those weeks-- was considered highly unusual at a time when her public statement could have aided in the search for the missing man. It also led to conjecture about the nature of Newton-John's relationship with McDermott, including the speculation that he was an employee, or "beard" to provide her with security after several threats on her life.

Newton-John immediately hired celebrity security consultant Gavin de Becker, ostensibly to help search for McDermott. After a swift spin campaign that obscured the nature of her relationship with McDermott and her actions in wake of his disappearance, she resumed her concert tour. In recent weeks, she was reported to have found a new “boyfriend.”

Over the past weekend, the 22nd Street Landing booth has been one of the most lively and popular stops at the fishing and boat show. One of its attractions is a raffle for a fishing trip on the Freedom. It was there that two of the staffers told Tabloid Baby that it's common knowledge among sportfishermen that McDermott is alive.

“He’s definitely alive,” one insisted. “Police know it. (He and Olivia Newton-John) broke up in January. He owed a lot of alimony and child support, so he faked his death.”

The person discounted the theories that McDermott was lost at sea or is in hiding in Australia. "No. No way. The Baja. They know it. He was seen in Todos Santos. There have been sightings.”

While its fishing waters are exceptional, Todos Santos is not known as a fishing town.

According to a promotional website: “Some come to surf the many fine breaks that the area offers. Some come to view the amazing variety of original art in the local galleries. Some come to experience the Tropic of Cancer and the iridescent sunsets. Some come to walk the nearly deserted beaches, not yet developed, no condos to be found. Some come to absorb the gentle pace-- the slow persistent calming pace of life. "Some come to visit, and never leave."

(Tabloid Baby continues to lead the way in keeping the Patrick McDermott story in the public eye, long after the “mainstream media” have moved on and followed the “entertainment” shows, incorporating his disappearance into Hollywood mythology— in this case, another obstacle for the brave performer Olivia Newton-John to overcome. We do not intend to add to his family’s pain in this tragic case, but in the spirit of Tabloid Baby’s original “Stories To Steal” site, hope to open avenues of investigation for intrepid reporters and editors to take in the pursuit of the truth. Or something close.)

OK, here's a tease for you: figure out what he was doing in 1975, and under what name, and you just might break a fascinating lead on this story...

He was living under the name Elvis presley and was all shook up.

You can believe this or not but I actually saw him in Baha this past weekend! I swear it was him! I mean, this guy is not your average looking person with his sharp features and wispy hair. And the person I saw spoke in English with no Mexican accent...I know this for sure because he spoke to me!

I thought he seemed familiar when I first saw him so imagine my surprise when I returned to the States and found out that a couple of other people had seen him in the past week too.

you're lying, he does actually have an accent (not spanish though) and he is reportedly dyed his hair

I know Patrick and have friends in San Quitin (Baja Ca) that know Patrick that talked to him after he disappeared. It's bull... Oliva is just promoting her album.

I just heard this weird story, and I've read a few things about it. People have said that records show he made food purchases an hour before the fishing boat Freedom docked, and with so much visibility, it would seem impossible for him to somehow slip off the boat unnoticed.

Then all these people swear they've seen him in Baja, which is really suspect. People always make up crap. And there is no such thing as a person who is so unique in appearance as to be unmistakeable. Remember, no matter how many people say they've seen Elvis, every single one is mistaken--because Elvis is dead! And so the "sightings" in Baja are of no particular value. I mean, if he's sighted, then he should be findable. So, someone...FIND HIM.Just wait in one of these bars every day until he shows up.

They say he faked his own death, but his devotion to his son was widely known. How does a person get from such devotion to a child to just ditching them without a word--forever? forget about Olivia--anything could have gone on with them.

People say he couldn't have jumped off the boat, but ultimately no one has come up with a theory of how he could have pulled off getting from the boat to Baja without leaving a single trace. If you were planning such a thing, would YOU rely on the possibility that no one could affirm that they saw you geet off the boat? THAT'S a pretty lame plan for slef-disappearance!

I was just watching Grease! Your the One that I Want, and I heard Olivia Newton-John say that her partner Pat was home sick. Did they find him or does she have a new partner Pat?

Anonymous said...

WTF? I was wondering the same thing! She said that "she is home sick?" Whats that all about??? She said her partner Pat was home sick and told her to get better. Did they find him....or does she have a "partner" now? 2 Pat's huh?

Pat Farrar is her best friend. Pat Farrar is married to Olivia's business associate, John Farrar.

Didn't the Ho Bag get remarried? She should be charged with aiding and abetting a ditching father.

She didn't remarry. She had nothing to do with the case at all.

hey, have you guys read the other threads about Olivia on tabloid baby? These Only Olivia fans are completely crazy!

That Kiliki is nuts! I wonder if she has ever considered therapy. Does she really think she is a psychic? Gotta hand it to the poster who called this bozo to the carpet a few weeks ago on the board. Obviously, the post got closed. I guess Kiliki must have some sort of payola goin on with the idiots who run Only Olivia.

She is schizo. She goes by two different names Kris and Nancy. Nancy is an alcoholic like that untalented "artist", H. What the fuck does H stand for anyway?

Pinklady, who cares about Linda Carters return to a caberet type of act? The ho can't even fill a room more than 200 people. Talk about hysterical.

What happened to Kim? Did she finally go get her root job? I know that would take a ghastly amount of time to address those issues, but she has been gone for a while. Did that queen Farmer finally run her off?

Melissa does not do anything to moderate the board. She does not intervene in conversations, just closes threads. Yeah, don't encourage conversation you figurehead. Does Kevin smother you when you are "sleeping" together? I saw that video of the two of you and it almost make me puke. What a pair of idiots.

What happened to Kate on the F&A board? Did she go to wookie rehab to get rid of that hideous unibrow?

oh no, not you again.

Kiliki just attacked someone on the Only Olivia forum board because they posted a list of top re-watched movies by women on the Only Olivia forum.

Because Grease was not number 1, she went off. She said it was wrong. My god, the world does not revolve around Grease.

This bitch needs help. I hope Olivia stays far, far away from her psychotic ass.

Kris maybe you should read a book or a newspaper if you are that stupid.

I bet Melissa will not delete her post because its from their favorite stupid fan Kiliki.

You are giving Kiliki too much credit she cannot read or speak correctly. You need to meet her in real life what a bozo.

I'd never want to meet that idiot in person. She looks like she has hepatitis.

Where in the world is Olivia?
Happy Mother's Day to Olivia?
Are these people for real, how old are OO fans five or ten?
Don't they have a normal life of some sort? This is laughable!
This proves that adults need to get a life on that board.
And what does "controverical" mean?
I think its too big of a word used for Xanadude and Kiliki to understand.

Anonymous said...

Yep, it's really quite sad.

They accuse other groups of stalking, yet they do it in plain sight on the Internet. Kiliki said that Olivia would be stopping in Malibu before her next whirlwind trip around the world.

Did you know that Grease was Kiliki's favorite movie because it describes her hair? She feels it is her autobiography. Diluted bitch.

I am not sure were to start because I used to love this board, but I don't anymore. It may even sound weird to some but that's okay too.

I've lost a lot during the past few years, my Mom's death was the worst. She was too young. And since she died I've bought a new house, and started a new life and it's been okay..not great but ok.

During that time I've never been so harassed in my life because someone just "believed" the word of someone else. I didn't do anything to anybody and I never would use the kind of words that I was accused of.

I've been accused of some things I didn't do, would never have time to do - even if I cared and would never do period because that's who I am.

Kiliki and her friends think I am someone that not only cared enough about them to go to so much trouble to offend them but also accused me of some terrible, just some really horrible things. I have never seen anything like this before nor would I believe I'd be writing a message like this.

There is someone out here that caused this trouble for me and I know who it is. Basically I was a victim of a bad relationship a long time ago.

All I can say at this point is that I will never post here again and as odd/weird as this may sound please know this much: No matter what you may think there is always another story. I am just sad that I, like many others were driven off this board because of a few on here.

I have never gotten so many hateful emails in my life as I did from Kris (Kiliki) and it's just wrong.

Just wrong because I don't even know her and because I was accused of something I didn't do. To give you and idea of how bad this was, I had to change my phone number and email address.

So in any event I sign off. I find his place too hateful. I know this won't be on here long but please know this: When you accuse someone of something they didn't do, you do a lot of damage.

My sympathies Dan regarding your Mom's untimely passing, and for the unfortunate situation you feel you've been put in. The stress can be a very damaging thing to your mental and physical health. I wish you the best, and hopefully you'll reconsider, and drop in from time to time. I DO understand. There are a number of posters who lack any fondness for me, as well, and I've recieved some pretty silly emails, too. But they are just ignorant musings from unhinged strangers on a singer's message board. You have to put it in perspective. Anyway, good luck and stay strong.

That was a very nice performance, Dan. Maybe you can tell everybody how you and Mindy continue to harass me even though I have nothing to do with you two just because you don't like my posts. Very mature. If you don't email me, I won't email you back. As far as your phone number, I don't even have it and wouldn't call you if I did. I hate talking on the phone. This thread will probably be deleted, but I hope it isn't. It shows you for the person you really are. Maybe some people will be fooled, but I'm not one of them.

This is weird. I thought you, Dan, were friends with Kris. My cousin's daughter was here and emailed Kris over Spring Break and she got an email back from YOU!!! It was from Dan Britton...yahoo account. The person was defending Kris and telling Sharon (my cousin's daughter) to grow up. It must have been someone pretending to be you, Dan.
By Dan on Saturday, April 14, 2007 - 09:30 pm: Edit
That is really weird...I don't know either of them (Kris or your cousin). What yahoo account ID is it?
By Heatherjs on Saturday, April 14, 2007 - 09:32 pm: Edit
I'm sorry, I don't remember and I'm not speaking to Sharon right now. I can't get into the account....It was your full name...maybe with a number after it. I'm sorry I can't remember.

Hey, would you email me, if you feel comfortable.

Yeah I am fine with that. I honestly believe someone is messing with me. Someone has caused a lot of trouble for me and with no reason here.
By Chrisb on Saturday, April 14, 2007 - 10:28 pm: Edit
If somebody is causing trouble, I feel sorry for them. For one, they need to get out more, 2 they need to get out more and 3 they need to get out more. I don't understand people.

I am sorry this person has caused so much trouble for you. They will get what they deserve, it will come back and bite them on the butt.

Take care

By Patrick on Saturday, April 14, 2007 - 11:28 pm: Edit
Dan, how do you equate me being the reason behind this? You and Mindy are sending unsolicited hate mail to Kiliki. Why do you cite me as the reason behind this?
Kiliki has the proof, all the emails. So again, I ask you, why am I the reason that you send hate mail to Kiliki?
I didn't want to get into this. But Dan is referring to me when he speaks of a "bad relationship". Dan, I have not spoken to you in years and have never contacted you once, unless responding to your accusations. Please do not blame me for your bad attitude.

To everyone else, you can believe what you want. But as pointed out above, there are 2 sides to every story.

Dan and Mindy (who has been banned because of this type of nonsense) have been emailing Kiliki today with all sorts of nasty hate email. Kiliki DID NOT contact them first. I have nothing to do with Mindy and Dan's actions.
Kiliki is telling you the truth. She is being harrassed relentlessy by these two.
I have nothing more to say to this.

I am sorry you lost your mother. But is no excuse to act the way you do. You are using it to manipulate sympathy from others, which is sad.

Dan, it was nice chatting with you. I'm sorry it was under these circumstances. I will contact Sharon tomorrow to see if she'll give me the password...I don't know if she will. She doesn't have internet at home so I don't think it's something that she has a lot of action on. I think she just activated it while she was here. If she gives me hassle, I'll talk to her mom. I'm really sorry that you've gone through so much...I hope the people who've done this to you leave you alone...and I hope you'll stick around. It doesn't sound like these people are worth it...they're not worth the stress...I've been worried about all of this and now I just don't care. I wish I would have known your name back when I saw the email in Sharon's account. Oh well...have a good night.

By Patrick on Sunday, April 15, 2007 - 12:06 am: Edit
Hmm, this is in such bad taste. Heather, you also contacted Kiliki with unprovoked hate mail. You even responded to her and apologized when the IP was traced to your house. Now, you cook up a scheme that it was your cousin sending the email from your computer, and not you? Now you are cooking up an even more grand scheme.

Just some commentary on that last post. Kiliki is NOT telling the truth. She is a horrible person, who spreads her hate via email and the Internet. She has no life and drinks from used Olivia cups.

Her good buddy Jim defends her here on tabloid baby just because he wants some of that nasty punani. He can't get any better. Sorry, Jim, Kiliki does not like you in that way. She uses up her monthly orgasm on Olivia photos.

To the poster above that suggested that Kris read a book, dream on. The only thing she knows how to read is the Only Olivia forum board. Oh, well, that and Olivia and Chloe's minds.
