FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Officials say the missing father of Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Mackensie Alexander turned up early Thursday at a ranger station at a state park in Florida.

Okeechobee County Sheriff's officials tweeted that 65-year-old Jean Alexander was in good health and will be reunited with this family.

He walked up to the ranger station at the Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park, which is about 25 miles north of Okeechobee.

His son was jailed on a battery charge shortly after leaving training camp to return to Florida to search for his dad.
