Freelancer ghosted us. Please advise

A freelancer that I was working with "does not currently have access to Upwork an will not receive messages until access is restored".


I hired a freelancer for assistance on a project for a client. In the middle of the project, I found the above notice within our messages.


I have obligations to my client and want to make sure I get the project done on time. Obviously without being able to contact my freelancer, I am not in the know of where certain tasks stand. In the meantime I am being proactive and have other team members helping to make sure we meet our deadlines.


Has anyone ever experienced this? I would love some insight on how to proceed. 



Hi Jenny,

Someone from our team will reach out to you via support ticket in order to assist you further.

Assign the remaining work to other members of your team.


Which is what you are already doing.


This is a normal part of project management.
