Former Los Angeles Clippers Player Lorenzen Wright Reported Missing
NBA veteran Lorenzen Wright, who began his basketball career with the Los Angeles Clippers in 1996, was reported missing over the weekend.
The NBA star disappeared while visiting his kids at his ex-wife's house in Collierville, Tenn. According to reports, he left the house at 2 a.m. while everyone was asleep.
"There is nothing on his phone records, no bank transactions, his vehicles are still at his house," Lt. Norm Dixon of the Collierville police told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "It's like he literally dropped off the face of the earth."
Though police do not suspect foul play, the family of Wright suspects otherwise.
