According to a Twitter poster, the actor's daughter, Alex, posted on a "DOOL" fanpage: "Hi everyone, sadly this report is not true. My dad has not been back filming, I wish he was though!"

    Hogestyn shot his last episode on March 18 according to his Twitter page and he has been seen in episodes airing July 17 and 18. Is the actor gone? Is he recurring? Does he merely not fit into the current storylines? has contacted "DOOL" for a statement about the situation and will update you when we receive one.

    When John come back he must bring and take down Kristen
    Demira on her knees now she's gone way way too far.
    Like I PREVIOUSLY MENTIONNED, Father Eric IS TOO GOOD for Saleem Community specially for the childreen and the school.
    EJ is no good yes but that a good thing he did take over his Dad Empire Go EJ!. Marlena, Brady and John Black deserves a break from the Demira's.

    Kristen is leaving in November, if Drake is taping now, he won't be showing up till February.

    I'd like to see John and Marlena break up and John hook up with Hope. She needs her own story.
