UPDATE: Kelly Price’s sister called in to the Larry Reid Show tonight and asked everyone to keep praying for the family.

She shared it’s not like Kelly to not communicate with her family. The sister shared they lost most of their family to covid. Kelly has 2 kids and it’s only them left and she will not be quiet until she speaks to Kelly and see her for herself. Let’s keep Kelly and family in our prayers.
Gospel singer Kelly Price is NOT missing and is safe, at least according to her attorney.
Monica Ewing, Kelly’s rep, tells TMZ … the singer is continuing to recover from COVID at an undisclosed location.
We’re told Kelly’s legal rep reached out to Cobb County police to notify law enforcement Kelly is accounted for … even though she’s now listed as missing with the National Crime Information Center.
TMZ broke the story … Georgia officials say Kelly has been listed as a missing person, following last weekend’s welfare check conducted at her home.
Gospel singer Kelly Price has gone missing in Georgia, TMZ has learned — and it happened shortly after she was released from the hospital after battling COVID.
According to officials in Cobb County … Kelly has been listed as a missing person following a welfare check conducted at her home last Saturday.
We’re told the authorities found no evidence of foul play and spoke with Kelly’s boyfriend at the residence, BUT … she’s now listed as missing with the National Crime Information Center.
As for what led to this … Kelly posted a video July 29 revealing she had COVID and was struggling with symptoms. According to Kelly’s family … she was admitted to the hospital about a week later and ended up in the ICU because her condition worsened.
Her family tells TMZ … they were in touch with Kelly while she was in the hospital in early August, and her children visited her several times. However, 3 weeks after she was admitted … we’re told her kids got a call that she’d been discharged, which was surprising because she was apparently still not fully healthy.
The family says Kelly has not been heard from since, and they told cops her boyfriend is allegedly keeping friends and family members from visiting her home.
We’re told this concerned many people close to Kelly, and led to someone alerting the authorities to do a welfare check last week.
Now, she’s officially considered missing, and we’re told there’s an active investigation to find her.
