First lady Melania Trump isn't joining her husband at the G7 summit in Quebec this week.

Melania Trump, 48, was missing on Friday when the Trump family - Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Tiffany Trump - joined the president on his trip to Camp David.

The first lady will not attend either of the prominent worldwide events, her Communications Director Stephanie Grisham told the ABC News.

The first lady hasn't been seen publicly since May 10.
