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] 🙏🏾 Thank you!
According to Sandy Springs Police, Ferguson was last seen by her family leaving her home on March 23. The 77 year old was wearing gray pants and a black shirt at the time and left driving a gray 2009 Honda Accord.
Authorities said she has ties to Ohio and California.
Whitfield says her mother often goes on vacation without telling anyone but she has never been gone this long.
“Also, in the past, my mom has taken personal vacations without letting the family know and we respect that side of her,” Whitfield wrote. “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.”
In 2017, Whitfield’s mother was featured on an episode of RHOA. Sheree planned a 70s themed bash for her 75th birthday but encountered some drama with the party planner.
