UPDATE: Louis Nix III has been found dead at age 29.

Louis Nix, a former NFL defensive lineman and Notre Dame Fighting Irish star, has gone missing in Florida.

Nix’s mother says the former third-round pick of the Houston Texans has not been heard of since Tuesday, according to Ben Becker of

She believes that Nix is in danger.

“Last communication of anyone seeing him was Tuesday,” Nix’s mother said. “Can’t call him because voice mail is full and people he talks to daily have not heard from him. Not like him.”

Nix left his father’s residence on Tuesday and has not returned. He was driving a 2014 gray Hyundai Azera.

During his NFL career, Nix also spent time with the New York Giants, Washington Football Team, and Jacksonville Jaguars. Back in December, Nix was shot during a robbery attempt while putting air in the tires of his car. The bullet entered his lung and he had surgery to remove it.

The latest incident, meanwhile, is not believed to be related to the shooting.

If you make contact with Louis or have any information regarding his whereabouts, you are asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500.
