    Former NBA Great Lorenzen Wright

    In the last few weeks, the Amber alerts on young girls has been astonishingly high. Teenage girls down to young girls barely toddler age often make the news as Amber Alerts are issued. When the missing person is an adult, a former NBA great for that matter like Lorenzen Wright, the news is just down right unnerving.

    "It's like the world just opened up and he fell in, " Deborah Marion is talking about her son, Lorenzen Wright.

    The last time anyone in her family saw the, 6-11, former NBA player was Sunday night. Marion says Wright was at his ex-wife's home in Collierville between 10 and 11, when the ex woke up he was gone their cars still in the driveway.

    Reports are that Wright foreclosed on his house not long ago. He also recently divorced, and lost a child to SIDS not that long ago.

    My hope is that he's taking a break to clear his mind and decided not to tell anyone about it. However, I can't shake the feeling it's worse.

    Some family members think he may be the victim of foul play. But Herb Wright, Lorenzen's Dad-- told us: "I don't think there's any legitimacy to this. I'm refusing to concede that he's missing at this time."
    But others from the Lorenzen camp are worried-- including his old high school coach, Fred Horton, who said: "Obviously I'm concerned about his well being. Lorenzen is like a son of mine, but I have no idea whether there was foul play."

    Heuberger says his department is following all leads and continuing to work closely with the family, but adds: "A lot depends on the individual himself...whether or not he wants to be found."

    AJC article has more details:

    According to police, Wright flew to Atlanta to his house in Smyrna, where a friend then picked him up to drive him to his ex-wife's house in Collierville.

    "He went to check on his kids," Lt. Norm Dixon of the Collierville police said.

    Wright apparently left while his ex-wife was asleep -- at 2 a.m. Police assume he was picked up by someone, but his ex-wife said she has no idea who he could have left with. Dixon said the ex-wife's neighborhood was "very safe and affluent."

    Police say that was the last time Wright was seen. But Savia Archie, Wright's sister, told the Memphis Commercial Appeal he was last seen the following morning at a Memphis barbershop.

    It also says he has had serious financial problems, losing two different million dollar homes to repossession recently. Lorenzen is 7 feet tall so he is very noticeable.

    Collierville detectives worked through the weekend chasing tips about missing former basketball player Lorenzen Wright, but thus far the department is dealing with the disappearance only as a missing person case.
