Police say former Atlanta Braves player Otis Nixon is missing

Otis Nixon, the former Montreal Expos' outfielder who was missing near Atlanta, GA since the weekend, has reportedly been found.

Nixon never arrived at his scheduled tee time at a local golf course, police said.

Woodstock police Sgt. Randy Milligan said Monday that the search for the former Braves player will continue.

"We are continuing to focus on Mr. Nixon's wellbeing", the police department wrote in an update on Monday.

He spent three years with the Braves from 1991 through 1993, retiring with the team in 1999. Woodstock, Georgia police said this morning that they received leads with respect to Nixon's disappearance overnight and that detectives are following up on them. He was reported missing Sunday.

During his time in the Major League Baseball, he collected 1,379 hits and 620 stolen bases, ranking 16th on the career list.

If you have any information regarding Nixon's whereabouts, call police.

Nixon missed the postseason that year serving a 60-game suspension for testing positive for cocaine, a violation of the Major League Baseball aftercare program.

Nixon ended his career with 1,379 hits and 620 stolen bases.

He was last seen in a gray 2011 Range Rover with Georgia tag CFP9010.

Any sightings should be reported to 911, Woodstock Police Department said.
