Police were on the hunt for Timbaland yesterday (August 24) and it wasn't for the public's safety--it was for his own.
According to TMZ, Timbo's family was nervous that the Virginia native would hurt himself after a $2 million piece of jewelry was stolen. The L.A. County Sheriff's Department brought out all the stops--a helicopter and squad cars--to try to find the Grammy-winner's Escalade. After some time, the vehicle was located and Timbo was brought back to his home, where paramedics determined that he did not present a threat to himself or others.
Today (August 25) also marks the nine year anniversary of the death of Timbaland's friend and collaborator, Aaliyah.
