Eaton's sister Debbie Lewis asked for help finding the missing wrestler on Facebook.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson tweeted about the wrestling legend Friday night, describing Eaton as "one of the kindest" souls.
Wrestler Tommy Dreamer also tweeted about the search for Eaton, saying he was last seen in Atlanta, has no phone and he is confused.
A picture tweeted Friday morning showed what appeared to be Eaton having a meal at the Atlanta airport, but that picture has since been deleted.
Reports surfaced on social media that Eaton was at an event in Charlotte with other NWA legends, but former WWE commentator Jim Ross posted on Facebook about the search for Eaton just before 10 p.m. Friday night. Ross was at the event.
A Vimeo video posted on Ross's Facebook Friday afternoon showed Eaton along with Ross, Jim Cornette, Stan Lane and Tom Pritchard. According to the time stamp on Vimeo, the video was uploaded Thursday, but Ross didn't post it to Facebook until Friday.
