Sheree Whitfield is in desperate need of help and support after she searches for her missing mother.

The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star revealed that her 77-year-old mother, Thelma Ferguson, has been missing for the past two weeks.

“Please keep my mom and my family in your prayers!” Sheree wrote on Instagram on Wednesday (Apr. 8). “We all know that prayers can move mountains!!!”

Sandy Springs, Georgia police have been searching for Ferguson’s whereabouts. They are now asking for public assistance.

According to the police:

Thelma Ferguson was last seen by her family on March 23, 2020 after leaving her Sandy Springs home. Ms. Ferguson was last seen wearing gray pants, black shirt and driving a gray 2009 Honda Accord.

Police also added that Ferguson has ties to Ohio and California.

Sheree has been close contact with police, but was hesitant to post on social media because she said she’s “pretty private when it comes to my family.”

Sheree also added that her mother has been known to go on personal vacations without letting her family know. However, this is the longest Thelma has ever been out of touch with her family.

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. πŸ™πŸ½πŸ™πŸ½ **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 πŸ™πŸΎ Thank you!
