A British actress living in LA has gone missing from her Hollywood home.
Friends of Tanya Fear say the 31-year-old hasn't been seen since Thursday September 9.
According to her family, she left her apartment near the Hollywood Bowl that night, leaving her cellphone and purse behind. She was last seen at a Trader Joe's grocery store on Santa Monica Boulevard, around 10 PM.
Frantic family members have set up a #FindTanyaFear Twitter account begging for information; they are currently applying for travel visas to fly to Los Angeles to aid in the search.
LAPD confirmed a missing persons report was filed on September 9; after the family contacted the UK Foreign Office, a local LAPD officer was dispatched to her apartment to conduct a welfare check, but found it empty.
