Rapper Theophilus London is missing, authorities in Los Angeles say

A missing persons report was filed for rapper and singer Theophilus London after his family lost “complete contact” with him this year, authorities said Wednesday.

London, 35, was last seen in Los Angeles’ Skid Row area in October, police said.

“The person reporting and Theophilus’s family members lost complete contact with him in October of 2022,” Los Angeles police said in a statement.

They added that he had not been seen since then and that his family was concerned.

In a separate statement released Wednesday, Secretly, a music label that has worked with London, said his friends and family have been working to piece together his whereabouts over the last few weeks. The last time someone reported speaking to him was in July, the statement said.

London’s family traveled to Los Angeles on Tuesday to file the missing persons report, the statement said, adding that they are now seeking the public’s help track him down.

“Theo, your Dad loves you, son,” his father said in the statement. “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.

London was born in Trinidad and Tobago and moved to New York City. His first album, “Timez Are Weird These Days,” was released in 2011.

London has collaborated with Raekwon, Azealia Banks and others. He earned a Grammy nomination for 2015’s “All Day,” which he recorded with Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West.

London released his third album, 2020’s “Bebey,” on his own label, My Bebey Records.

In an interview that year with Complex, he compared the move to “building a house on my own land, instead of sleeping at a hotel for the rest of my life.”
