Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed it has been told by its missing persons unit that British actress Tanya Fear has been found alive.
A statement posted on the FindTanyaFear Twitter account earlier on Monday said she left without her mobile phone or purse and was reported missing by a friend.
Fear’s mother, Yvonne Marimo, said at the time: “I am devastated about this situation, and I appeal to anyone with information to please come forward to bring our daughter back home safely”.
The statement, issued before she was found, said her family wanted to launch their own search and were applying for visas to travel to the states.
Fear also starred in the French series Spotless, as well as the film Kick-Ass 2, and had been recently performing stand-up comedy.
She is best known to UK audiences for her role as Dr Jade McIntyre in Doctor Who.
