Former Major League Baseball player Otis Nixon is missing.

The Woodstock (Ga.) Police Department released an image of Nixon Sunday night, saying he was last seen Saturday around 10 a.m. in a gray 2011 Range Rover. The 58-year-old was leaving his residence in a vehicle with a Georgia license plate reading CFP9010.

Nixon had been heading to a golf course, according to WSB-TV in Atlanta, but didn't show.

Nixon retired after the 1999 season, and was last in headlines in 2013, when he was arrested for possession of crack cocaine. He has had a history of drug abuse, getting suspended in 1991, while with the Braves, after testing positive for cocaine. The suspension caused him to miss the World Series.

Nixon was a longtime switch-hitting outfielder, best known for his two stints with the Braves. He came up with the Yankees, playing his first 13 games with the Bombers in 1983, while also spending time with the Indians, Expos, Red Sox, Blue Jays, Dodgers and Twins.

In a 17-year career, Nixon, a fleet-footed center fielder, stole 620 bases, scored 878 runs and hit for a .270 average, though never making an All-Star Game.
