Price was listed as a missing person after a welfare check was conducted at her home last Saturday following her release from the hospital where she was battling COVID-19 for the last two month, perTMZ. However as news broke of her missing, Price's attorney, Monica Ewing, later told the outlet she was safe and not missing.

Price's last posted on Instagram on July 29. At the time, she revealed in a video that she tested positive for the coronavirus.
"I Am COVID Positive. I’m following Dr’s orders. I’m quarantined. Feeling really drained. Splitting headache but I’m not in the hospital," she captioned the post, sharing more detail in the video. "I’m grateful and expecting to have a quick recovery. #GodIsAHealer."
