The missing onetime boyfriend of Olivia Newton-John, presumed dead after disappearing during a 2005 fishing trip, may have finally surfaced.  Private investigators tell News Of The World they received a letter faxed on behalf of Pat McDermott, that says "LEAVE ME ALONE!" and" Stop the search immediately."

The fax dated February 10 insists McDermott fled the California spotlight for a life with less hassle. It adds: "Pat asked that I portray to you his innocence in the crimes you have accused him of. Pat has committed no crime. . . Pat simply wishes to be left alone. . .

"Let him live his life in peace and harmony. He is safe and has started anew again in a new place both mentally and physically."

Investigators hired to solve the mystery have long suspected McDermott staged his death to escape debts and cash in on a life insurance scam.

Investigators say they have now received a photograph of the missing 52-year-old with hair dyed black in a bid to change his appearance. Along with three phone calls from a mysterious representative.

Investigators say that McDermott, last seen with friends on a charter boat outside San Pedro Harbor in Los Angeles, has been on the run and is hiding out in a sailboat off the coast of Mexico.
