Otis Nixon, the 58-year-old former MLB outfielder who hadn't seen been since Saturday morning and was reported missing by his girlfriend, has been located and is safe, Woodstock Police announced Monday afternoon.

Nixon left his home around 10 a.m. Saturday to go play golf, but never showed up to his tee time. On Sunday, his girlfriend reported him missing to the police in Woodstock, Ga., an Atlanta suburb, and detectives managed to locate him after receiving a "decent number" of tips, according to Meris Lutz and Ken Sugiura from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Nixon, who spent parts of 17 seasons in the majors and helped the Atlanta Braves to consecutive National League pennants in the early nineties, battled drug issues throughout his career and has dealt with several legal problems since retiring. In 2013, Nixon was arrested after deputies allegedly found a crack pipe and crack rock in his truck following a traffic stop, and two years later he was arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a minor and permitting an unlicensed person to drive.
