Simmons went on to say that he had "reached out" and hoped his fans would do the same. The former fitness guru hasn't been seen in public since February 2014 and finally made a decision to speak out after being hospitalized for gastrointestinal issues this week.

He also says that "by now you know that I'm not 'missing, ' just a little under the weather". TODAY's Hoda Kotb reports. "I'm sure I will be feeling good and back home in a couple of days".

The report said that there was a vehicle accident earlier in the week in the same area, but it's unlikely that this had anything to do with Simmons' property since the wreck had already been taken care of. It is not always possible for people to solve problems themselves as "sometimes it's [the problems] just bigger than we are". For all we know he'll pop up on Howard Stern's show again one day soon, as if he's never left, and talk Stern into a vigorous aerobics session set to hits like "It's Raining Men". "Hope to see you again soon!" he concluded.
