Officials: Bengals CB Alexander's father found alive



Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Mackensie Alexander's father was found alive and is being reunited with the family after a three-day search in Florida, according to state officials on Thursday morning.

NFL Network reported the man was in good health when he was located in Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park.

Alexander was arrested and released after being charged with one count of battery. He returned to the team Wednesday night, only to learn Thursday morning that his father was alive.

Alexander left the team after learning Jean Odney Alexandre (last name spelled differently) had gone missing while on a trip to pick berries. The Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office said the man was reported missing Monday night.

The 65-year-old Alexandre reportedly was left behind by another man he joined on the berry-picking expedition.

The Bengals cornerback, 26, was charged with one count of battery and released on $2,000 bond. NFL Network said Wednesday morning that Alexander was arrested following an alleged confrontation with the man who allegedly deserted the player's father.

The Bengals signed Alexander to a one-year, $4 million contract in March. He played four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, who selected the Clemson product in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

In 55 career games (10 starts), Alexander has 99 tackles, two interceptions and 21 passes defensed.
