The Bold and the Beautiful fans have been wondering about the whereabouts of the Forrester men. After Bill (Don Diamont) was pushed off the balcony, they seemed to disappear. Rumors have been swirling, but until today, nothing was confirmed.

Ingo Rademacher was cast in the role of Thorne Forrester. It has been a year since he stepped onto the scene. While it was hard for some long-time fans to get used to him, he was eventually welcomed into the recast role.

Where has Thorne been?

It has been quite some time since Thorne was seen on The Bold and the Beautiful. During November sweeps, his impromptu wedding to Katie Logan (Heather Tom) was a big deal. For all of the trouble the writers went to for the ceremony and subsequent events, not seeing him around has been confusing.

Ingo Rademacher addresses rumors

After several days of speculation, Ingo Rademacher took to Instagram to confirm that he was no longer on contract with The Bold and the Beautiful. Speculation began when he was sharing photos of himself in Hawaii at his home.

My Bold and Beautiful status. It is true what you are hearing and I think it’s time to set the record straight. I have decided to not continue with my contract on The Bold and The Beautiful and I’ll be finishing up my last episodes in January. I want to thank Brad Bell( we’ve been communicating) the entire show and cast (truly awesome people) and also CBS for a fun year of playing Thorne. We are parting on good terms and with the possibility of a return. We shall see what the new year brings. Yes i have been in Hawaii for the last 2 month with my family working on my property and will continue to stay here throughout January but then it’s back to LA. #coffetalk

There will be a few more episodes taped with Ingo Rademacher as Thorne in the new year, but after that, it is unclear where things will go. Will the show recast the role again? He made it clear they were parting amicably with a possible return in the future, but how will they explain Thorne’s absence?

Could Ingo return to General Hospital?

It looks like Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) may be going through some things with Margaux (Elizabeth Hendrickson). Rumors have swirled that he will once again cheat on his wife and she has made it clear that if that happens, she is done forever.

With Ingo Rademacher off contract, will ABC swoop in for a return of Jasper Jax? Carly loved him once and they share a daughter already. Could viewers see him back in Port Charles sometime in 2019?

The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS.
