Former MLB outfielder Otis Nixon has reportedly been missing since Saturday morning.

On Sunday, the Woodstock Police Department in Georgia sent a tweet revealing when he was last seen:

According to WSB-TV in Atlanta, police said he had a scheduled tee time at a golf course but never arrived.

Nixon played from 1983 to 1999 for the New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians, Montreal Expos, Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers, Toronto Blue Jays, Los Angeles Dodgers and Minnesota Twins.
