Missing Rapper Theophilus London Has Been Found Safe, Family Says
Grammy-nominated rapper Theophilus London, who was reported missing by his family in late December, has been located, according to a cousin.
The cousin of a rapper whose worried family reported him missing after Christmas says he's been located safe.
Theophilus London's family filed a missing person's report for him on Dec. 27, Oxygen.com previously reported, and the Los Angeles Police Department publicized a call for information a day later.
His family said their last contact with him was in October, while his label, Secretly, said in a statement that the last time anyone had spoken to him directly was July. The LAPD said the last known sighting of him was in L.A.'s Skid Row around noon on Oct. 15.
The family encouraged anyone with information about the 35-year-old London's whereabouts to contact the LAPD or the missing man's cousin, Mikhail Noel.
That cousin announced on Instagram late Wednesday that London had been found.
“We have found Theo. He is safe and well,” he wrote on a picture of the rapper. “At this time the family would love prayers and privacy. Thank you all!!!”
In a caption, he added, "Truly appreciate everyone’s support in finding my cousin. It’s refreshing and rewarding to have such a strong support system of family and friends!!! God bless each and everyone of you all."
No further details have been released by the family. The LAPD has not confirmed that London is no longer a missing person, according to the Los Angeles Times.
London was born in Trinidad and Tobago but later moved to New York City. In 2011, he released his full-length debut album, “Timez Are Weird These Days,” followed by "Vibes" in 2014 and "Bebey" in 2020.
London is perhaps best known for collaborations with other artists, including Ye (the artist formerly known as Kanye West), Raekwon, Travis Scott, Tame Impala, Big Boi and others. He was nominated for a Grammy Award (alongside Paul McCartney) in 2016 for best rap performance for his feature on Ye’s song, “All Day.”
Ye also produced London's 2014 album, "Vibes." The two reportedly remained close, and the Associated Press reported that London often posted on Ye's Instagram accounts dedicated to the albums named for Ye's mother, Donda West. His Instagram indicates that the two most recently collaborated on Ye's "Donda 2."
London performed at last year's Coachella music festival in April. His last known collaboration was as a featured artist on Young Franco’s “Get Your Money," which was released in September.
