Sandy Springs police are searching for the 77-year-old mother of a former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member who hasn’t been seen in more than two weeks.
According to police, Thelma Ferguson was last seen by her family March 23 after leaving her Sandy Springs home to go to the bank.
She is the mother of original “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Sheree Whitfield, who was married to former Atlanta Falcons offensive tackle Bob Whitfield.
Sheree Whitfield was part of Bravo’s hit reality show for six of its 12 seasons, most recently Season 10. Her mother would show up on the show occasionally as a guest.
In 2017, Whitfield hosted a birthday party for her mother that was featured on the show. She told Bravotv.com at the time: “My mom definitely enjoyed her birthday. I think she was overwhelmed with such happy emotions. My mom is my hero; she always worked so hard to provide for me and our family. It felt good to be able to do this for her and make this milestone birthday so special for her. She had a smile on her face the entire night!”
Ferguson was last seen wearing gray pants and a black shirt and driving a gray 2009 Honda Accord with Georgia tag RMZ5773, police said. She has ties to people living in Ohio and California.
According to her family, the 77-year-old has no known medical issues, Sandy Springs police Sgt. Salvador Ortega said Wednesday.
