After several stressful days for his family and fans, rapper Theophilus London has been found, according to an Instagram post of his close family.
I remember seeing Theophilus London at Amoeba back in 2011. At the time, he was performing for the release of his album ‘Timez Are Weird These Days,” and if I haven’t followed his career very closely, I know he collaborated with many famous artists from Kanye West to Solange Knowles and Tame Impala.
However, his family filed a missing person report with the LAPD on December 27, declaring they hadn’t heard from him for months and had last spoken to him in July. According to the police report, the famous rapper was actually last seen in Skid Row, Los Angeles in October 2022, and this seems to be the most alarming part of the story. Undoubtedly this is not the best part of the town to hang out for a guy who bought Humphrey Bogart’s house in the Hollywood Hills…
The story sounded very bleak until his cousin posted the following on Instagram… just an hour ago:
“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.”
There are no other details so far, and the family is asking for prayers and privacy. However, his cousin’s Instagram account declares that Theophilus is safe and well. For once, this is a happy ending.
We may learn more about what happened to Theophilus London but there is something quite strange about this story. First, it took a long time for people to recognize he was missing: someone close to him should have realized that his activity on social media was unusual since his last Instagram post is from July 2022. Looking at his page, he was someone quite active, posting several photos every month. Then, one of his cousin’s last IG posts was a happy road trip to Las Vegas (dated December 23) which seems to be unrelated to London. Four days later the family was filling out the missing person report.
