Zoe said that Cody’s family and friends became worried after Cody left home with his car and personal effects and did not return. They have been unable to contact him by phone and no one knows his whereabouts.
Fans and followers of Cody have also noticed that he has not been active on social media since he dropped his EP My Reality on Sunday, a day after his 18th birthday on Saturday.
Zoe is Cody’s ex-girlfriend and both are known to their fans on Musical.ly, TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube, as ZoDy. They began dating in November 2017 after they met on social media but broke up in March 2019 following claims that Zoe cheated on Cody.
But despite the explosive allegations, Cody and Zoe have remained good friends.
Although many of Cody’s fans have been showing concern after Zoe announced he was missing, some have been expressing doubts on social media, suggesting it could be a prank to gain attention and promote Cody’s new EP. Others suggested that Cody’s family was keeping his whereabouts secret to keep Cody away from Zoe.
But Cody’s sister Lexi also took to social media to confirm that the YouTube and TikTok star was missing. She denied the allegations that it was all an elaborate prank. She said that members of Cody’s family have been frantically trying to contact him and are worried and praying for his safety. She added that the family did not want to make the issue public at first but were forced to go public after Zoe took to Instagram Live to announce that Cody was missing.
Zoe also pushed back against the accusations that she was lying. She posted a photo of a police car on social media and claimed that police had become involved in the search for Cody.
Zoe and Lexi later shared a picture on Instagram showing them wearing red hoodies and making the heart sign. The girls launched the hashtag #redforcody, which has been trending on social media. They said they hoped that Cody would see the hashtag and understand that that people are missing him and return home.
Other social media influencers, including Danielle Cohn, have also shown support for Zoe and Lexi by wearing red outfits.
