The Coral Gables football coach whose disappearance Tuesday after midnight left his family and friends on edge was found unharmed in Fort Pierce Friday night, Miami-Dade County Police said.
Authorities have released few details about the discovery of 39-year-old Roger Pollard, saying only that Fort Pierce police found, and that he was back with his family.
“Our investigation led us to the Fort Pierce area,” said Miami-Dade Police Lt. Carlos Rosario.
Pollard’s disappearance shocked people who knew him.

Meanwhile, police – who appeared to be as stumped as anyone – called the incident a “possible disappearance,” adding that there was no indication that Pollard might be in trouble.
Sometime between 11:55 p.m. Tuesday, and 5:12 a.m. Wednesday, Pollard disappeared from his home in northwest Miami-Dade. No one could say for sure if he had left in his red Toyota Camry, although he was also reported missing. According to his wife, the house’s Ring surveillance system was turned off for five hours and 17 minutes. And the world lost contact with Pollard. “Has no sense. She is a very organized and methodical person, ”said Shay Moen, who has been married to Pollard for six years. “All I wanted was for my husband to return home safe and sound. My children need it ”.
“Everything is a great mystery,” said Angel Rodriguez, spokesman for the Miami-Dade police.
According to police and eyewitness testimonies, everything indicates that all was well with Pollard until almost midnight Tuesday, and then he disappeared without a trace.
Moen that she spent Tuesday night with the couple’s two children at her mother’s home in Broward County, who is recovering from two consecutive surgeries.
