Former NFL Player Sergio Brown Missing, Mother Found Dead

The sports world was turned on its ear this weekend over the report of former NFL player and Notre Dame star defensive player Sergio Brown having gone missing.

Brown's mother, Myrtle, was found dead in a nearby creek, with officers opening up a homicide investigation.

Their mysterious disappearance was realized when family members were unable to get ahold of them, notifying authorities, which resulted in the discovery of Brown's dead mother.

What's Going On?

After the family reported them missing, a missing persons search was conducted.

Myrtle Brown, 73, was found dead in a creek near their Illinois home, but there were no signs of Sergio.

Police, however, did say that Myrtle's death is being investigated as a homicide.

Her sister, Sheila Brown, stated, "We're going to find out what happened because it's not normal for my sister to not answer her phone, not to respond to text messages. People have been reaching out to her since Friday. No one was able to reach her.

"Now, I got the call this morning saying that she's missing, so immediately I came out here and find out my sister is dead," reported Fox News.

Police continue to search for Brown.

Sergio's brother, Nick, posted on Instagram, "My brother Sergio is still missing.

"If anyone knows where he is I want him to know that I love you and please come home."

Brown was primarily a special teams player during his first two years at Notre Dame, but cracked the starting lineup in his junior season, then had an outstanding senior year with 50 tackles.

While he did go undrafted in 2010, the Patriots signed him, then he bounced around the league for a few years before retiring in 2016.

He wound up on the roster or practice squad of the Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Atlanta Falcons, with his final team being the Buffalo Bills.
