Billionaire businessman Dan Gilbert, whose absence in Detroit has been keenly noticed, has returned from a Chicago rehab facility to continue his recovery from a stroke, Chad Livengood of Crain's Detroit Business reports.

"On Friday, Dan Gilbert returned to Detroit to continue his rehabilitation locally," Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner wrote in a statement. "We are extremely thankful for all of the skilled medical professionals who have played a significant role in Dan's recovery and are glad to have him back home."

Gilbert, 57, returned Friday after eight weeks at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, which has a national reputation. He suffered a serious stroke May 26 while at Beaumont Hospital.

The company founder has not retruned to work, and Crain's noted that it's unclear if he's at his Franklin home or at a rehab facility full time.

Some city projects are on hold while Gilbert recovers, Mayor Mike Duggan said recently.
