According to a statement released Wednesday by Secretly, a music label that has worked with London, rapper Theophilus London has gone missing.
“Friends and family… have been working together to piece together his whereabouts over the last few weeks,” the family said in a statement. According to the musician’s family and friends, someone last spoke to him in July in Los Angeles.
London’s relatives travelled to Los Angeles on Tuesday to file a missing persons report with the Los Angeles Police Department.
Officer Annie Moran, an LAPD spokesperson, confirmed Wednesday that a report had been taken for London. According to a department press release, London was last seen in the Skid Row area on Oct. 15, and his family had lost contact with him.
The family is appealing to the public for help in locating London, who stands 6-foot-2, weighs 175 pounds, and has dark brown eyes. London’s family urged the public to contact LAPD or the musician’s cousin Mikhail Noel via Instagram (@iamdjkellz) in their statement.
London was prolific on Instagram, but his last posts were also in July.
Larry Moses London, London’s father, also made a plea in the statement released Wednesday.
“Theo, your Dad loves you, son,” he writes in his message. “We are missing you. And all of your friends and family are looking for you. Send us a signal from wherever you are. We’ll come get you no matter what.”
London was born in Trinidad and Tobago but spent most of his childhood in Brooklyn, New York.
London has released three studio albums in the last decade: “Lovers Holiday” (2011), “Vibes” (2014), and “Bebey” (2015). (2020). He has collaborated with Tame Impala, Ellie Goulding, Travis Scott, Ye, formerly Kanye West, Big Boi, and others.
London was nominated for a Grammy in 2016 for best rap song and rap performance for Ye’s 2015 single “All Day,” in which she appeared alongside Paul McCartney and Allan Kingdom.
Ye, who produced and appeared on “Vibes,” has frequently collaborated with London. On Instagram, London would frequently post updates on Ye’s “Donda” and “Donda 2,” even claiming that he had been “promoted to tackle media duties” on Ye’s behalf for the month of February.
London was recently featured on Young Franco’s “Get Your Money,” which was released in September — the month before he was last seen.
