Joey had been Tweeting earlier in the day about his joy at tackling the marathon, which he competed in for the Alzheimer's Association, a cause close to his heart as his mother suffers from the disease.

Knowing his bandmate was in the race, actor/singer Donnie Wahlberg appealed to fans on Twitter after hearing about the explosions.

"Please reach out if you hear that @joeymcintyre is ok!!!!! Please say a prayer for everyone in Boston!" Donnie Tweeted.
