Tanya Fear: Concerns Grow For Doctor Who Actor Who Has Gone Missing In LA

The 31-year-old was last seen in the Hollywood Bowl area last Thursday.

Concerns are growing for British actor Tanya Fear, who has been reported missing in Los Angeles.

Tanya – who has appeared in Doctor Who and Midsomer Murders – was last seen on Thursday, according to her friends and family.

The hashtag #FindTanyaFear has been started on social media in a bid to gather information about the 31-year-old’s disappearance.

A missing person poster circulating on social media says the actor went missing in the “LA/Hollywood Bowl area”.

Her manager, Alex Cole, told ABC News that Tanya was fine when he last saw her a week ago.

“Since she’s been here, she’s had a great career and this is just the beginning,” he said.

“We’re obviously concerned and [hope] we find out this is a simple mistake and we find her.”

As well as appearing in Doctor Who as Dr Jade McIntyre alongside Jodie Whittaker, Tanya has also had roles in Endeavour, DCI Banks, Cleaning Up and Spotless.
