Former Dallas Cowboys running back Lincoln Coleman is missing.

Lincoln Coleman, 48, who helped the Dallas Cowboys win Super Bowl XXVIII and reach the NFC Championship Game the following year, has been reported missing.

According to news reports and the Dallas Police Department, Coleman was last seen in Dallas on Friday.

He was in a silver 2016 Ford Escape SUV with Florida license plate GVF-P44 and was wearing a long-sleeve black shirt with black shorts and black sandals.

Sadly, this isn't the first time Coleman has gone missing recently. He disappeared briefly last May but was fortunately found unharmed.

Per Coleman's family, the sturdy former fullback suffers from dementia and other issues, most likely from his football career.

Coleman played in 18 games for the Cowboys in 1993 and 1994, including two playoff games, one of which was Super Bowl XXVIII against the Buffalo Bills in January 1994. He rushed for 312 yards and scored three touchdowns in his two-year career.

His top performance came in 1994, when he rushed for 74 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Washington Redskins.

We hope Coleman is found safely and soon.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his teammates.
