After rapper Theophilus London was reported missing in December, his cousin Mikhail Noel announced on Wednesday that he was reportedly found. “We have found Theo he is safe and well,” Noel posted to Instagram. “At this time the family would love prayers and privacy. Thank you all!!!”
Police previously told the Los Angeles Times that London was last in communication with someone, via text message, on Oct. 15, and left his house that same day and was last seen in L.A.’s Skid Row neighborhood.
Independent record label company Secretly Group issued a statement on Dec. 28 stating the missing person’s report was filed on Dec. 27 after London’s family members traveled to Los Angeles. The family of the 35-year-old rapper filed a missing persons report with the Los Angeles Police Department, Rolling Stone has confirmed.
London’s father, Lary Moses London, spoke directly to his son in his statement, saying: “Theo, your Dad loves you, son. We miss you. And all your friends and relatives are searching for you. Wherever you are send us some signal. No matter what we will come get you son.”
The 35-year-old musician was last active on social media on July 11.
London made his ascent in the music industry in the early 2010s, pulling from hip-hop, soul, pop, and punk to craft his genre-blending sound. The rapper built close collaborative relationships with his peers, hopping on tracks with Azealia Banks, Octavian, Ellie Goulding, and more.
In 2020, London released his third studio album Bebey, a self-released record that recruited features from Tame Impala, Lil Yachty, Raekwon, Giggs, Ariel Pink, and more. The fully-independent project found a hit in the Kevin Parker-assisted “Only You,” marking the most successful release of his career thus far.
In the social media post, Noel thanked “everyone’s support in finding my cousin,” writing, “It’s refreshing and rewarding to have such a strong support system of family and friends!!! God bless each and everyone of you all.”
