Former OSU basketball player Gary Gaskins found safe in Atlanta Published: June 9, 2014

A former Oklahoma State basketball player reported missing from his northeast Atlanta apartment has been found safe, police said.

Gary Gaskins disappeared Friday night after leaving the Atlanta apartment he shares with his girlfriend, authorities said. Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones said this morning that Gaskins “has been located at an area hospital and is in good health.”

The center from Beaufort, S.C., joined the Cowboys as a junior-college transfer last year. He averaged three minutes while appearing in 11 games before stepping away for personal reasons in February.
