TMZ.com says police went to his home in Spring Hill, Tennessee today to check on him after they were alerted to the post. Josh writes about troubles in his relationship, saying he "admitted" his mistakes and told his wife "the truth," and she "turned her back" on him when he "needed her help the most." He also asks readers to "pray" for his family "as they carry on in this world without" him. Gracin was not at home when police arrived. But officers have reportedly reached him on the phone, and are waiting for him to return.
