Gospel singer Kelly Price has gone missing in Georgia shortly after being released from the hospital in July after contracting COVID-19.
Price, 48, who released a new album earlier this year, has been reported missing after a health check at her home last Saturday, according to the Cobb County Police Department.

Price was admitted to a hospital a few days later.
The family told TMZ they visited her while she was recovering in hospital but were shocked to learn she was being released three weeks later, though she didn’t look healthy enough to leave.
