On Friday, August 23, former 49ers linebacker Jamie Winborn went missing and hasn't been found since.

According to WSB-TV, Winborn's wife called the police on Friday morning with concerns about his behavior, telling them he had guns and drugs in their Atlanta home. By the time the authorities arrived at the house, Winborn was gone.

Police secured a search warrant and entered Winborn's home, finding several weapons and an unspecified amount of marijuana. The former linebacker has also been battling cancer as recently as 2012, according to WSB-TV.

Winborn, 34, began his NFL career in San Francisco, playing there from 2001-05. He accumulated 142 tackles and nine sacks as a 49er.

The last time Winborn played in the NFL was in 2010 for the Tennessee Titans.
