Uncle/trainer of Floyd Mayweather Jr. reported missing

LAS VEGAS -- Roger Mayweather, the uncle of Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been found safe after he went missing Saturday night, officials say.

He was found around 10 a.m. by family members on Flamingo Road.

Mayweather had last been seen around 3 p.m. Saturday in the area of Spring Mountain Road and Valley View Boulevard, less than a mile away from Mayweather Boxing Club.

Authorities said the 55-year-old suffers from several known medical issues and did not have his medication.

They were asking all area hospitals to check their registries.

Roger Mayweather, who is 5-foot-7 and 160 pounds, had been last seen wearing a white shirt, blue sweatpants and white tennis shoes.

Roger Mayweather has been training his nephew on and off since the latter first turned pro in the mid-1990s. He was himself a champion boxer in two different weight classes, and both of his brothers were contenders. He went by the nickname of "Black Mamba."

A biography on the Mayweather Boxing Club website states: "A former championship fighter within the ring, Roger has fought a different battle outside of it. He suffers from diabetes - a condition that causes excessive thirst, fatigue, weight loss, blurred vision and the occasional tingling in the body's extremities."

The website states Roger Mayweather has two young children.
