Jean Odney Alexandre, the father of Bengals cornerback Mackensie Alexander, has been found alive in Okeechobee County, Florida. The 65-year old Alexandre was originally reported missing on Monday after he and a friend went berry-picking and was found at the Ranger Station at the Kissimmee Prairie Reserve State Park on Thursday morning.

Not only is Alexandre alive, he is in good health and is able to see his family.

This is tremendous news for Mackensie, his father, and the entire Alexander family. Mackensie also has a twin brother named Mackenro, who played college football for Auburn and Iowa State.

For Mackensie, it’s been a rough week. He left Bengals training camp on Monday to help the search for his father. On Tuesday, he was arrested after confronting the man last seen with his father and stayed in jail until Wednesday night, when he was released with a $2,000 bond.

Thankfully, his father was found not long after his release from jail and they can begin to heal from this week.
