Christmas Abbott updated her followers and Big Brother fans with the sad news that her aunt has passed away.

Earlier this month, Christmas revealed that her aunt had gone missing, sharing that it had happened after a stop at a gas station.

Taking to her Instagram page tonight, Christmas shared a very sad update that they had found her Aunt Betty.

“My Aunt Betty was found in her truck in a ravine. Sadly, she didn’t survive the crash,” Christmas began an Instagram post.

“Thank you for all of the efforts and prayers to search for her. It’s a tragic situation. I am grateful she was able to spend the last year with her sister, my momma and was living a happier life,” Christmas continued.

Christmas closed out her post by writing, “She attended my wedding and saw all of her family that she hadn’t seen in years. She was able to meet other members of the family that she had never met in person. Betty had the time of her life with that coming together and I am so thankful for that. My heart hurts.”
