ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The father-in-law of Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Kellen Winslow was found safe at a U.S.-Mexico border crossing on Saturday, three days after he vanished, police said.

Anaheim police were notified at about 9 a.m. Saturday that Enrique Guzman, who has Alzheimer's disease, was found at the Calexico border crossing, Anaheim police Sgt. Rick Martinez said.

The 67-year-old Guzman, of Montebello, was last seen Wednesday at an Anaheim gas station in his blue Chevy Camaro.

"It is our understanding that Mr. Guzman was returning to the United States from Mexico early this morning. While at the border crossing, he was displaying symptoms of confusion," Martinez said in a statement. "A computer check by United States Customs officials revealed that Mr. Guzman [and his vehicle] were listed as missing."

It was not immediately clear why Guzman had gone to Mexico, Martinez said in an e-mail.

Guzman appeared to be healthy. His daughter went to the border crossing and met him at about noon, Martinez said.

Winslow, a Pro Bowler in 2007, was a first-round draft pick out of Miami in 2004 by the Cleveland Browns. He was traded to Tampa Bay after last season.
