Corey Smith, 3 others missing
ABC News in Clearwater, Fla., is reporting that an unnamed Lions player is missing after a fishing trip to the Gulf of Mexico Saturday morning.
Lions spokesperson Bill Keenist said the team is looking into the report and trying to gather the appropriate information.
According to the report, linked below, a 21-foot fishing boot left at 6:30 a.m. yesterday with four people on board. The boaters were supposed to return after dark, but a friend called to report them missing about 1:30 a.m. According to a dispatcher, three of the boaters are NFL players, including one that plays for the Lions and another for the Raiders.
Update: Just got off the phone with Ronald Del Duca, the agent for defensive end Corey Smith. He confirms that the player missing is Smith. Obviously, keep Smith and his family in your prayers and hope for the best.
