Recently The Inquisitr reported that Johnny Depp had gone missing after sources such as the Gold Coast Bulletin and Vanity Fair reported that the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales star had missed his plane bound for Australia.
Johnny Depp was expected to board a charter plane from Los Angeles to Australia where the actor would resume filming on his current Pirates of the Caribbean movie. He had returned to the US after needing surgery on his finger thanks to an injury he sustained on set back in March. As a result of this, Depp had not been seen in public since March 12 2015.
Fans went into a frenzy when the news first broke about Johnny Depp not arriving in Australia, especially since the actor did not check in with anyone or alert the media to the fact he was okay. Also concerning were the reports of marital woes between Depp and his wife, Amber Heard. To add intrigue to the mix, Amber did not make a public statement at all in relation to either Johnny Depp’s disappearance or their martial problems which led to fans beginning to think the worst. Some media outlets were also suggesting Johnny Depp may have returned to the US to undergo rehab.
But it turns out all is well for Johnny Depp after Australia’s Channel Nine posted the following picture assuring fans Depp had in fact touched down in Australia. It also seems he and his wife were attempting to quash any rumors their relationship was on the rocks with the pair holding hands as they alighted from their plane.

As yet neither Channel Nine or Johnny Depp have not offered an explanation as to the actor’s sudden disappearance. Filming is now expected to resume shortly on the fifth installment of the Pirates of Caribbean franchise.
This is not the first disruption to filming Pirates of the Caribbean. Back in February filming was halted due to Tropical Cyclone Nathan. Then, not long ago, there was a fiasco involving a scammer who managed to cash in on a legitimate request for “busty wenches” for the movie. Hopefully this latest delay will be the last in what is normally a very successful franchise.
