Former NWA/WCW World Tag Team Champion "Beautiful" Bobby Eaton was found safe on Friday night after he went missing for about 24 hours. Eaton's sister Debbie was the first to post about her brother via Facebook:
Eaton went missing after appearing at the NWA Legends Fanfest in Charlotte, NC on Thursday night. Jim Ross posted the following video before he went missing:
Several wrestlers posted about Eaton on social media, noting that he was last seen at an airport in Atlanta and that he was confused and did not have a cellphone.
Independent wrestler Matt Sigmon actually drove from Florida to the Atlanta airport to look for him and, as you can see below, he is fine.
We are glad to hear that Eaton was found safe. Eaton, best known for his work as a member of The Midnight Express and as a very underrated worker in the business, reunited with Jim Cornette, Stan Lane, Tom Pritchard, Jim Ross and many other legends this past week at the NWA Legends Fanfest.
