ICYMI: RHOA's Shereé Whitfield Reveals Her Mom Has Gone Missing, Asks For Prayers

The Bravo star said her mom “has taken personal vacations without letting the family know” in the past.

Former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Sheree Whitfield says her mother, Thelma Ferguson, has gone missing.

On Wednesday, the television personality revealed the shocking news on Instagram and asked her followers to keep her mom and her family in their thoughts and prayers.

“We all know that prayers can move mountains!!!” Whitfield, 50, captioned a photo of Ferguson, 77. “I was hesitant to post my concerns for my mother’s safe return because, although I have been in close contact with the police for the past two weeks.”

After noting that she’s “pretty private” when it comes to her family, the Bravo star said her mom “has taken personal vacations without letting the family know” in the past.

“We respect that side of her. However, this is the longest she have gone without reaching out to anyone from the family or her friends,” Whitfield continued. “Right now we are leaning on God and staying positive and prayerful for her safe return home.”

“HOME is where the HEART is and prayer in numbers work,” she added. “As we all continue to navigate through these uncertain times, remember the blessings of having each other…. Family is everything. I ask that everyone pray for my mother’s safe return home. And know that our family will be internally grateful.”

Whitfield ended her post by urging anyone who has information on her mother to call the Sandy Springs Police Department and included the contact information.

Please keep my mom and my family in your prayers! We all know that prayers can move mountains!!! I was hesitant to post my concerns for my mother's safe return because, although I have been in close contact with the police for the past two weeks, I'm also pretty private when it comes to my family. Also, in the past, my mom has taken personal vacations without letting the family know and we respect that side of her. However, this is the longest she have gone without reaching out to anyone from the family or her friends. Right now we are leaning on God and staying positive and prayerful for her safe return home. HOME is where the HEART is and prayer in numbers work. As we all continue to navigate through these uncertain times, remember the blessings of having each other…. Family is everything! I ask that everyone pray for my mother’s safe return home. And know that our family will be internally grateful. ???? **If anyone has any information we ask that you please call Sandy Springs police at 770-551-6923 or email the detective handling the missing persons case at [email protected] ??
