The daughter of former COAL CHAMBER bassist Rayna Foss has said that reports that her mother has been missing since September are wrong.
Four months ago, New Orleans authorities announced that the 51-year-old Foss was reported missing by her group home manager after last being seen on September 7, 2021.
After numerous music websites picked up the story of Rayna’s apparent disappearance yesterday (January 4), her 22-year-old daughter Kayla — whose father is Foss’s former husband, SEVENDUST drummer Morgan Rose — released the following statement via her Instagram account: “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 [Fafara, COAL CHAMBER frontman] — 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.”
Foss was a founding member of COAL CHAMBER and played with the group from 1994 until 1999 and returned briefly in the early 2000s.
