News of 35 year old artist’s disappearance surfaced the last Tuesday following a missing persons report filed by his family who claimed to have not heard from him since July of last year.

A subsequent LAPD news release stated the last time London was seen was on Skidrow Oct. 15th, 2022.

His disappearance prompted an outpouring of love and concern from the music and artistic community, and from fans online.

London performed earlier last year at LA Weekly’s The Retreat held during Week One of the Coachella Festival. He took the stage Saturday, April 16th and performing a number of his hits, including “Only You,” a jam he made in collaboration with Tame Impala. It was one of his last known public performances.
