Friends of a British actress who starred in the TV series “Doctor Who” have launched a huge manhunt after she went missing just two months after moving to Hollywood.
Tanyaradzwa “Tanya” Fear, a 31-year-old actress who was also in the movie “Kick-Ass 2,” had only just moved to LA, where she had also started performing stand-up comedy gigs, her manager told Sky News.
Her family reported her missing last Thursday — with friends taking to the streets of Hollywood to search for her, plastering the area with missing-person posters, according to a Twitter account set up as part of the hunt.
The official fan account for “Doctor Who” was among those tweeting the poster in a huge push to find Fear.
A cousin of the London-born actress also begged for help online, saying Fear “has no family in the US and we’re all really worried.”
She was last seen wearing a brown short-sleeve fitted top and dark plaid bottoms, the site said.
Her manager, Alex Cole, told KABC that he last spoke to the actress just over a week ago, and she had seemed fine.
“Since she’s been [in LA], she’s had a great career and this is just the beginning,” Cole said. “We’re obviously concerned and (hope) we find out this is a simple mistake and we find her.”
