Adam Muema Missing After Leaving Combine
Muema arrived in Indianapolis with the intention of completing the workouts that would be evaluated by NFL coaches for franchises around the country. However, the 21-year-old athlete opted to leave the combine for religious reasons, reported the San Diego Union Tribune.
On Sunday, when approached by a reporter at the Indianapolis Airport, Muema said, “[God] told me to sit down, be quiet and enjoy the peace." Muema elaborated to reporters, claiming that God told him that if he chose to forgo the opportunity at the combine, his dream of playing for the Seattle Seahawks would be realized.
Muemo's Disappearance Puzzles Friends
"I have no idea where is," a source close to Muema told the Union-Tribune. "[His coaches] have been trying to track him down, too. Every time they do, his phone is off. … It's a frustrating deal."
Lou Farrar, Muema's high school football coach, is just as puzzled as the rest. "It's a big mystery," Farrar said. "At this point, we just hope he's safe. As long as he's safe. That's all that really matters."
Muema’s family members have not commented on the football player’s unknown whereabouts.
