MEMPHIS, Tenn. (CBS/AP) The family of former University of Memphis and NBA basketball player Lorenzen Wright said they suspect foul play in his disappearance.

Wright's sister, Adriane Harris, told The Memphis Commercial Appeal that Wright has been out of touch before, but "not to this extent."

The family filed a missing persons report with police.

Police said they don't suspect foul play.

Wright played in college at Memphis and later for the Grizzlies as a pro. He last played in the league for the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2008-09 season.

Harris said Wright was last seen at a Memphis barbershop on July 19, where he had his hair cut. Harris did not say who she suspects would have harmed Wright or why, noting only he's always been reachable.
