Yesterday was a scary day for family, friends, and fans after former American Idol contestant Josh Gracin left what seemed to be a goodbye note on his Facebook page.

After people became aware of the Facebook message, police went searching for Gracin, who was missing from home. They got in touch with him on the phone and Josh told them he was heading back home. Police ended up accompanying Josh to a local hospital where he was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold.

Josh's sad and disturbing status has since been taken down from Facebook and has been replaced by a message from his manager. 

Good evening everyone. This is Josh's manager, Amy. First, thank you everyone for your prayers and concern. Josh is safe and with his family now. We ask that you please respect their privacy during this time and continue sending your well wishes. I promise to update you soon.

So glad that so many people jumped into action on this one. Hopefully Josh will be able to get the help that he's apparently in need of.
