Police in Georgia have listed gospel and R&B singer Kelly Price as a missing person after being unable to find her during a welfare check last weekend.
Price, 48, posted a video on July 29 saying she had COVID-19 and was having trouble with the symptoms. Her family told TMZ she was admitted to a hospital about a week later and then taken to the Intensive Care Unit when her condition worsened.
The family said they had been in touch with Price while she was in the hospital, and her children had visited several times.
But after she’d been hospitalized for several weeks, her children were told she’d been released, even though she wasn’t recovered from the disease.
The family said they haven’t heard from her since, and her boyfriend has refused to allow friends and family in the home he shares with her.
That’s when someone asked for a welfare check. Authorities said they spoke with the boyfriend and found no evidence of foul play, but she’s now been listed as missing.
Price has sung with Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, and Brian McKnight, among others. She has recorded eight albums and been nominated for several awards, winning the 1999 Soul Train award for best R&B, soul, or rap new artist and the 2016 AMFT best rap song and best rap duo/group performance for “Ultralight Beam” with Kanye West, Chance the Rapper, Kirk Franklin, and The-Dream.
Her latest album, “Grace,” was released this year on the Motown Gospel label.
