Former Ring of Honor World Champion Michael Elgin reportedly went missing on Monday, but he was located the following day. He is said to be “okay”, and he is being taken home.
In a Facebook post, Maria James, a friend of Elgin (real name Aaron Frobel) stated that he has been missing since Monday afternoon. She expressed concern about his absence and asked for help finding him.
“For those who don’t know my missing friend is Aaron Frobel better known as Big Mike or Michael Elgin. He has been missing since yesterday afternoon and if any knows where he may be please contact me here or his sponsor Eric at the number provided below. We are worried about him immensely and any information would be greatly appreciated. We just want to bring him home safely. If any one has seen him please reach out. Aaron Frobel please contact me or Eric or someone and let us know you’re safe.”
In another post, Elgin’s sponsor, Eric explained how he has been helping the former IMPACT Wrestling star “through a lot of things,” and he stated that Elgin left a worrisome message before he went missing. He noted that Elgin left his phone at his house, but his vehicle is missing. In the post, Eric provided a number where he can be contacted if anyone has more information about Elgin.
“Hello, my name is Eric and I’m a friend/sponsor of Aaron’s. I don’t want to cause too much alarm, or worry anyone too greatly. But I’ve been helping Aaron through a lot of things lately, and yesterday he left a concerning message on Facebook and at his home. Myself and my wife have a spare key to check in on him, and when going to see what was going on we found his phone but he was not at home. We have his phone, but his vehicle was not at the home so we hope he just went somewhere to clear his head. If anyone on here hears from him, or sees him please reach out.”
Global Syndicate Wrestling, a promotion Elgin worked for earlier this year, shared the message on Twitter.
On Tuesday, GSW posted that Elgin is okay; he has been found, and he is being taken home.
