Facts about Richard Simmons Disappearance

Richard Simmons was a household name in the 80s fitness motivation scene. The fitness guru was known for his enthusiastic and witty fitness tactics.

In February last year, Dan Taberski, a veteran producer and Simmon’s student premiered a podcast dubbed ‘Missing Richard Simmons’. The podcast was an investigative report aimed at identifying the cause of Simmons unexpected disappearance. The podcast however, raised even more speculations over his well-being with an unidentified person claiming that Simmons was held hostage in his home. This led authorities to a welfare check of his apartment in March last year and no such instances were reported.

In 2015, another report reached the police that Richard suffered from elder abuse and again, no incriminating evidence was discovered. Though Dan`s podcast didn’t auger well with Richard, it might have been a blessing In disguise to resuscitate Simmons’ name.
