Johnny Manziel shows up at Mike Evans' wedding, but not Louie Anderson's show

Johnny Manziel hasn't been heard from since his father's public comments that he worries about his son's safety. As it turns out, the Cleveland Browns quarterback made a public appearance at former Texas A&M teammate Mike Evans' wedding over the weekend.

A wedding attendee confirmed Manziel was there, which social media pictures over the weekend suggested.

As for comedian Louie Anderson tweeting a picture of himself and Manziel to promote a Texas show Sunday night, Anderson confirmed via email that the picture is old, from the 2015 NBA Finals, and Manziel was not at his show at the Horseshoe Bay Resort.

Those close to Manziel have painted a harrowing picture of the quarterback, who spent 10 weeks in a Pennsylvania rehab center last offseason.

Manziel is the subject of a criminal investigation by the Dallas Police Department into an alleged assault of ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley on Jan. 30. Manziel hit Crowley so hard that her left eardrum ruptured, Crowley's lawyer told NBC5 last week.

This was the second time Crowley has been questioned by police after an alleged altercation with Manziel, who was not charged after an incident in the Cleveland suburb of Avon in October.

Manziel's father, Paul, recently told the Dallas Morning News he fears his son won't make it to age 24. Manziel's birthday is Dec. 6. The family has urged Manziel to return to rehab, Paul told the Morning News.

From Earl Campbell to Charlie Sheen, public figures have expressed concern for Manziel. Include Anderson in that mix.

"I'm rooting for him to turn his life around. A lot of people are," Anderson said via email. "When people are lost they often need someone who's traveled that road & survived it, to illuminate the correct path through the hailstorm because when you are in a hailstorm, you are positive you are not going to survive it. Sorry but I've lost so many friends to that storm, & in their memory, I write in the hopes that somehow the things I say might help."
