On January 4, the metal media world (ourselves included) reported that founding Coal Chamber bassist Rayna Foss has been missing since last September. Now according to Rayna's daughter Kayla Rose via an Instagram post, Rayna is not missing and Kayla has spoken to her as recently as a few days ago. Kayla added that she has "a message in to the New Orleans Police Department advising them of this and am waiting for them to respond."
The genesis of this story stems from the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) putting out a notice that Foss was last seen on September 7, 2021 by a group home manager with no additional follow-up.
"To everyone that has reached out in some way and to the media that has been reporting on this: Let me set the record straight. I've seen all of the posts regarding that my mother Rayna has been missing since September. I have no idea where these stories are coming from. I spoke to my mother as recently as yesterday, and we have never lost contact. My grandparents have also been in contact with my mother, and we all know exactly where she is. I have a message in to the New Orleans Police Department advising them of this and am waiting for them to respond.
"I've also seen other stories about Dez — my mother's old singer — and a feud with my father Morgan. These are also false. My dad and Dez are friends and have been for a long time.
"I'm confused where all of this started from, but it can stop now.
"Hopefully there won't be a next time, but maybe someone can check before running these stories that end up disrupting my entire family in the future."
