Doctor Who star Tanya Fear has been found four days after she was reported missing.

Tanya, who is best known for playing Dr Jade McIntyre, has reportedly been reunited with her family after vanishing in the Hollywood Bowl area of Los Angeles on Thursday 9 September.

Thankfully, Tanya has been "located and connected to her family", the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed on Monday.

After she vanished an online appeal was launched by Tanya's friends.

It said: "Our friend Tanya is missing. She was last seen in the LA area on 9/9/21. No one has seen or heard from her since.

“Repost her picture with the hashtag #FindTanyaFear to help locate her. If you have seen her or know where she is please call (626)-232-8616 #missingperson #Missing."

"Tanya Fear left her Hollywood Bowl apartment on Thursday the 9th of September without her cell phone and purse. She was reported missing by a friend."

Tanya's mum Yvonne Marimo added: "I am devastated about this situation, and I appeal to anyone with information to please come forward to bring our daughter back home safely."

Her uncle Jonathan Marico added: "We are deeply worried about Tanya's whereabouts, she is a bubbly, intelligent young woman who studied at Christ Hospital Boarding School and Kings College University in London."
