Celebrity gospel singer Kelly Price was safe Friday night after being reported missing in the Atlanta area where she lives, her lawyer said.
Monica Ewing said she didn’t believe Price was ever actually gone, but went to a “quiet place” to recuperate after being recently released from a hospital where she was treated for Covid- 19.
“She’s safe,” Ewing said. “She was released from the hospital with Covid and she went to a quiet place and she is trying to recover. “
The lawyer said Price was on top of Covid-19 but still had to be at his best to be able to play.
“She needs to rest and start the journey to health again,” she said.
Sgt. Wayne Delk of Cobb County Police in Georgia confirmed Price was the subject of a missing person report, but said no details would be released, including who reported his disappearance.
The 48-year-old singer spoke of contracting Covid-19 on an Instagram video on July 29: “I didn’t feel so good last night. … It came back that I have the Covid. … It hurts badly . I have no appetite. I am very weak. I can hardly stay awake.
She said she “prayed for this to pass quickly.”
TMZ first reported the singer’s disappearance.
Price has had several gospel hits. In 1998, her song “Friend of Mine” reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Broadcasts.
Earlier this year, the Motown Gospel label announced it had signed a deal with Price that included the spring release of their extended-playing album “Grace”.
The label did not respond to a request for comment.
