LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say the uncle and longtime trainer of boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been found safe after being missing overnight.

Authorities say 55-year-old Roger Mayweather was located Sunday morning and was reunited with his family.

Police did not say where he was found or how they determined his location.

Roger Mayweather was last seen Saturday afternoon less than a mile away from Mayweather Boxing Club.

Authorities were also searching for him because he has medical issues, including diabetes, and did not have medication with him.

A former fighter, Roger Mayweather is also known for training boxers including his famous nephew.

He was replaced for some of his nephew’s bouts last year by Floyd Mayweather Sr.
