Alabama Rapper Bambino Gold Goes Missing
Alabama rapper Bambino Gold and his cousin Skooly Wit Da Tooly have been missing since Nov. 5, and now, Skooly's mother is begging police for help.
According to AL.com, Bambino Gold, born Edward Reeves, and Skooly Wit Da Tooly, born Kendrick Stokes, were reported missing on Nov. 7 in Alabama. "They just vanished into thin air," said Stokes' mother, Felicia Stokes Webster. "It's very devastating."
Cousins by marriage, Stokes and Reeves, who both originally hail from Montgomery, Ala., were last seen at the Sky Bar in their hometown. Stokes was in town to promote a party when Reeves came to town the next day. The two then left Stokes' house to attend the Alabama National Fair. "A lot of people saw them there," Stokes' mother said.
The two were reportedly making their way back to Atlanta but made a stop at a friend's house at 10:55 p.m. According to the friend, the cousins were supposed to return but when they didn't he tried calling Reeves' cell phone. Other members of the family also tried calling but the calls went straight to voicemail.
"Between 11:30 p.m. and 1 a.m., something happened between that time,'' Webster said. "What happened, we don't know." The two were last seen driving a 2016 white Honda CRV with a Georgia license plate.
Stokes' mother also made her way to Atlanta to plead with the police department, WKYC reports. In a letter sent to the APD, Webster wrote: "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."
The family is now asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 334-215-STOP.
