McDermott was believed to be dead after he did not return from a fishing trip in 2005, but New Idea reports that a photograph of what appears to be McDermott and an unidentified woman was found at a Mexican campsite last month.
McDermott, a cameraman, owed thousands of dollars in child support at the time of his disappearance, and private investigator Charlie Parker said that he believes the photo is of McDermott.
“The widow’s peak is exact. The eyes are very similar, and the ears extend down on the head the same distance. I believe it is him,” Parker told New Day. The publication put the photo on the front page of their latest edition.
