The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office in SC posted the following notice on Facebook, revealing that Torrold "He Hate Me" Smart (XFL) has been missing for a week.

Smart had been missing for almost a week. He played one season with the Philadelphia Eagles and his last four with the Carolina Panthers.

Lancaster deputies posted a Facebook message that described Smart as a "missing endangered person" and said it's unusual for Smart to be out of touch this long.

Per the report, police are asking for anyone with information on Smart's whereabouts to call the Lancaster County sheriff's office at 803-283-3388. He came to fame for his "He Hate Me" nickname, which he was allowed to put on his jersey for the one season of the XFL in 2001.

Smart played for the Las Vegas Outlaws in the original XFL.

"Basically, my brother's my opponent", Smart told the newspaper. That year the franchise enjoyed its first ever Super Bowl appearance.

Prior to being located, Torrold Smart, 42, also known as Rod Smart, was last seen at about 10:30 a.m. on June 12 in Indian Island, South Carolina.

He was last spotted driving a silver 2016 Nissan Maxima (license plate PJR-1759).
