(Newser) – Police in Georgia are looking for a former Atlanta Braves player who left his home to play golf Saturday morning and hasn't been seen since. Otis Nixon, 58, was reported missing by his girlfriend Sunday afternoon, a Woodstock Police Department rep tells CNN. He was driving a gray 2011 Range Rover with Georgia license plate CFP9010. Police say there's no sign of foul play or any known medical issue. Nixon's 17-year playing career was marred by drug problems, and he missed the Braves' 1991 trip to the World Series after failing a drug test, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution reports.
