He just vanished
Rapper Bambino Gold and his cousin have gone missing in Atlanta.
The Alabama-bred pair left Montgomery last week to return back to where they were living in Atlanta. They headed to the Alabama State Fair on their way out of town and stopped by a friend’s house, but they haven’t been heard from since. They were reported missing on Tuesday and neither the men nor the car they were driving have been seen since.
“I don’t have a clue what happened to my son. It’s like he just vanished in thin air,” said Felicia Webster, the mother of Bambino’s cousin Kendrick Stokes.
Webster traveled to Atlanta to beg the police to look into her son’s disappearance and noted to a local news outlet that it was unlike Stokes to go without calling. She told local station WXIA:
“I talk with him every day. Every day. We’re a family that prays together. When he didn’t call that Monday; I knew something was not right. I hate when night comes, because I know I can’t search for him. I stay awake during the night because I’m just hoping he’ll walk through that door–or he’ll call and say, ‘Mama, I’m here,’ or ‘Mom, come get me. I’m somewhere.’ Because, normally, this is not like my son.”
According to reports, the pair stopped by a friend’s house on the way out of Alabama and left with promises to return quickly. However, after a few hours, the friend started calling and only getting their voicemail.
“Between 11:30 p.m. and 1 a.m., something happened between that time,” Webster said. “What happened, we don’t know.”
The distraught mother also penned a letter to the Atlanta Police Department urging them to help her find her son. Take a look at her plea below:
“Kendrick Stokes has been missing for several days. We have not gotten a phone call, text or email from him. No person as a family member, friend or associate has received any contact from him. We have grave concern for his safety, well-being and where he is at this present time.
The law enforcement authorities in Montgomery, Alabama have concentrated their efforts in this matter and we as a family are interested in expanding the support to locate our family member.
We the family do hereby request a partnership with the Atlanta Police Department in expanding the efforts to find Kendrick Stokes.
We request a meeting with the department with all deliberate speed to support us in resolving our concern. Please be in communication with Mr. Bartell and assist us with this urgent and critical matter for our family.”
As for Bambino, he has been knocking around the Atlanta scene for quite a while, racking up guest appearances on tracks with the likes of Boosie and others. However, he has also not been heard from since last week.
Webster is asking anyone with any information about the whereabouts of her son and his cousin Bambino to please come forward. She said that she can’t handle the suspense of not knowing where her child is.
“The suspense of sitting around waiting is hard and at night it gets worse,” she said. “That’s my child. It’s very devastating.”
