Canadian Football League kicker is missing

Duncan O'Mahony, a Canadian Football League kicker and punter, has vanished on his way to a new job with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, relatives and club officials say.
O'Mahony, 29, who played the past two seasons with the British Columbia Lions after three with the Calgary Stampeders, left his home town of Abbotsford, British Columbia, just north of Sumas, Wash., on Friday to fly to Winnipeg, Manitoba, after signing with the Blue Bombers as a free agent.
He planned to meet a friend for dinner during a stopover at the Calgary airport but never showed. When he failed to board his flight to Winnipeg, his baggage was taken off the plane, airline officials said.

Concern rose after he failed to appear Saturday at for the start of training on Saturday in Winnipeg.
Blue Bombers general Manager Brendan Taman said that in a telephone conversation Friday morning, O'Mahony "seemed all jacked up, ready to come" and asked who would meet him at the Winnipeg airport.
I've been talking to his father quite a bit, and [Duncan] has had some issues he's been dealing with, [but] nothing that would warrant this kind of a situation, I don't think," Taman said.
O'Mahony was born in Kilkenny, Ireland, but grew up in Abbotsford and played football at the University of British Columbia, then spent three years with the Calgary Stampeders and two with the British Columbia Lions. He signed with the Blue Bombers last week as a free agent.
