Former Braves outfielder Otis Nixon reported missing

WOODSTOCK, Ga. - Former Atlanta Braves outfielder Otis Nixon is missing.

The Woodstock Police Department sent out a tweet Sunday evening saying Nixon, 58, was last seen leaving his home about 10 a.m. Saturday.

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

Police said Nixon left for a tee time at a local golf course, but never arrived.

He left wearing a black long sleeve-shirt, black sweatpants and a black baseball cap, with black Adidas shoes with white stripes.

Nixon joined the Braves during the team's worst-to-first season in 1991. The following season, Nixon made his now famous catch, leaping high above the outfield wall to rob Pittsburgh’s Andy Van Slyke of a go-ahead home run. “The Catch” preserved a 13-game winning streak for the Braves.

He amazed fans with leaping catches and blazing stolen bases, with a career record of 600. But he missed the Braves' trip to the World Series in 1991 after failing a drug test.

Channel 2 Action News previously reported on Nixon following a 2013 arrest on charges of crack cocaine possession.

He declined to talk at that time.
