Postado Fevereiro 15, 2018

There's no further information regarding this most-recent incident other than an update from authorities in Dallas noting that he has been located and is safe.

Coleman was described as having diminished mental capacity and could be in need of medical assistance, a police bulletin said during the search. While he only played in 18 games over a four-year National Football League career, he earned a Super Bowl ring with Dallas in 1994 when the Cowboys defeated the Bills, 30-13, in Super Bowl XVIII.

Coleman reportedly went missing in May 2017, but after his mother called the police, he returned after seeing his photo on television. "He can't tell you where he's been walking", Waynita Coleman, 67, said. He was last seen in Old East Dallas last Friday, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Randolph said that Coleman had parked his auto outside a church three blocks away, but had been unable to figure out how to get back home.

Lincoln Coleman was a running back for the Cowboys back in 1993 and 1994. Coleman has had some health issues, including dementia.

This is the second time Coleman has gone missing in the last nine months.

Coleman was reported as wearing a long sleeve black shirt, black shorts and black sandals when he went missing. "He's a big man and he can take care of himself, but when he's in that condition, you don't know what he's thinking or you're thinking someone can take advantage of him".

Randolph noted that on bad days, Coleman has been known to wander off and that his confusion lead to him getting frustrated and then lost.

Coleman's mother told Dallas News that he suffered at least eight concussions while playing football. He won a Super Bowl in 1994 against the Buffalo Bills.
