The British actress Tanya Fear had shifted base and had been living in Los Angeles for the past two months and went missing on Thursday.
Actress Tanya Fear, who appeared in ‘Doctor Who’ and other popular television shows, has been reported missing in the Los Angeles area by her family and friends. The actress was last seen in the Hollywood Bowl area of Los Angeles on Thursday, her manager Alex Cole confirmed on Sunday.
The British actress had shifted base and had been living in Los Angeles for the past two months. The news came to light after many of Fear’s friends started writing on social media after not hearing from her. A police department spokesperson confirmed that a missing persons report was completed the same day. No additional details were available, the spokesperson said.
News of Fear’s disappearance started circulating on social media, after a friend of hers wrote on Twitter: “My friend Tanya has gone missing in the LA/Hollywood Bowl area.”
“She hasn’t been seen since 9th September 2021. If anyone has any useful information please call (626)-232-8616 #FindTanyaFear. Would appreciate if those in the area or with reach in that area RT.”
Fear was last seen in her apartment in Hollywood Bowl on Thursday night. At the time, she was wearing a “short-sleeved brown collared fitted top” and plaid pants, with her hair in its natural afro. A woman who identified herself as Fear’s cousin wrote that the missing woman “has no family in the US and we’re all really worried.”
Even Fear’s manager, Cole, is shocked and confused at her sudden disappearance. Cole said Fear, who also appeared in the British shows ‘Cleaning Up’ and ‘Endeavor’ and the 2015 film ‘A Moving Image’, had lately been performing stand-up comedy and had been in the Los Angeles area for about two months. According to Cole, the two last spoke around eight days back, when they discussed world. Cole said that he didn’t notice anything suspicious and Fear looked fine.
British best-selling author Bolu Babalola tweeted out a call for assistance on Sunday, as did a “Doctor Who” fan page.
“My friend Tanya has gone missing in the LA/Hollywood Bowl area,” Babalola wrote along with a photo and the hash tag Find Tanya Fear. “She hasn’t been seen since 9th September 2021. On the day she went missing her hair was natural, in its afro state.”
Fear has been living in the Hollywood Bowl area, associates said.

“It was a shock to me,” Cole told “Today” upon learning of her disappearance. Los Angeles police confirmed that they’d written up a missing person report.
