Report: Searchers Find Former Steelers WR Ray Mathews

Some good news to report this morning as former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Ray Mathews has been found alive after being reported missing Tuesday evening.

WPXI reports Wednesday morning that searchers located Mathews in an area of woods near White Oak Road and crews trying to get to him in order to extricate him.

Mathews family notified police on Tuesday after the 84 year-old never returned home from his daily walk. Mathews apparently suffers from dementia.

Mathews was drafted by the Steelers in the 7th round (81st overall) of the 1951 NFL Draft out of Clemson. He played nine seasons in Pittsburgh and caught 230 passes for 3,919 yards and 34 touchdowns during that span and was named to the Pro Bowl in 1952 and 1955.

Mathews is 10th in Steelers franchise history in receiving yards, and is 13th in receptions.
