A BRITISH actress who had been missing for four days in California has been found, police confirmed today.
Tanya Fear, 31, was found safe and her family had been notified, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
Tanya's cousin Kudzi Manyande told The Sun after LAPD’s announcement: "I just spoke to her mom and she says LAPD has not made any contact.
"She's trying to call them as she has also seen similar news on social media. She says until she sees/speaks to her, she won't believe it."
Manyande added: “They have not made any contact with her immediate family. It's so distressing. Not being on the ground has made it extremely difficult for us.”
Her father Andrew, who lives in Germany, told The Sun he was also completely unaware she’d been found.
Tanya had been last seen on Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles last Thursday.
Her disappearance sparked a frantic search by her family in the UK who tried to make their way to the United States.
The actress was last spotted at a Trader Joe’s in Santa Monica, California on September 12.
Tanya’s devastated mum fought to get a temporary visa in order to jet over to Los Angeles to look for her daughter.
Her mum Yvonne said: "I am devastated about this situation and I appeal to anyone with information to please come forward to bring out daughter back safely."
Tanya's manager Alex Cole confirmed to US media that she had been living in LA for the past two months and that he spoke to her eight days ago.
Her family were desperate to get the LA police to take her disappearance seriously, and said that it was “very worrying” for them.
Tanya had been working for charities in Zimbabwe during the pandemic as she was stuck there due to travel restrictions but had recently flown back to America to perform stand up.
Missing posters were shared on social media, and a Twitter account dedicated to the actress’ disappearance was opened.
Actress Tanya had appeared in the popular TV series "Doctor Who" in 2018 and the film "Kick-Ass 2" among other projects.
