Kelly Price is safe and not missing at all, her attorney says, but the gospel and R&B singer’s sister says no one from the family has seen her — including her two young children.
Attorney Monica Ewing told TMZ that Price is recovering from COVID-19 at an undisclosed location after the outlet reported that officials in Cobb County, Georgia — where she lives — conducted a welfare check at her home and didn’t find her.
The welfare check was prompted at Price’s family said she unexpectedly checked out of a hospital while being treated for COVID and the family hadn’t seen or spoken with her since, as CrimeOnline previously reported. . Her boyfriend, reportedly, refused to let family members in her house.
Ewing also told TMZ that she has spoken with Cobb County police to tell them that Price is safe and that Price will address her disappearance when she’s recovered.
But Shanrae Price, the singer’s older sister, said in a pair of interviews that the family — including Kelly’s two young children — have not seen her.
“I understand an attorney has stated that my sister is okay,” she said on the digital Larry Reid Live show, Revolt TV reported. “We don’t know anything until we physically see her … ”
“My sister is a very visible person,” she added. “We haven’t heard anything from her in months. She was very sick with COVID. This is unlike her. No one has heard from her. I know everyone has their own opinions. I don’t do stuff like this but I did want to call in. Until we physically see my sister, we don’t know anything. I’m just asking people please pray okay, because she has two children and it’s just she and I. We lost our mother, we lost our sister six years prior — It’s just she and I.”
Shanrae Price also spoke on the Black News Channel, saying “the last time my niece and nephew saw her was the 13th of August” and addressing her sister directly.
“My sister’s children are young. I know that they’re confused, and I know that they’re upset and I know that they’re scared,” she said. “I’m feeling the same way… Just please Kelly, if you’re okay, please just show up. Go to the cops. Do something but we have to see you physically.”
