Huge news delivered after the shocking revelation that former Nebraska running back Maurice Washington was labeled a missing person by the Nebraska State Patrol.

LPD officer Erin Spilker said an out-of-state family member reported Washington missing since Friday.

Omaha World-Herald reporter Christopher Heady spoke with the LPD. The police department told Heady that Washington is “safe and sound.”

It was back in January of this year when Nebraska dismissed him from the team after the running back received misdemeanor charges for transmitting a video of an underage girl engaging in a sex act.

Washington was sentenced to 30 days in in jail after initially facing a longer sentence if convicted on both charges: possession of a video of a person under 18 engaging in sexual acts and distributing the video without that person’s permission.

During his two years with the Cornhuskers, Washington had 1,136 scrimmage yards and seven touchdowns.
