British actress found safe after going missing from LA home
British actress Tanya Fear, who appeared in "Doctor Who" among other shows and films, has been found after going missing in Los Angeles for several days.

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A British actress who had been missing in Los Angeles for several days has been found, police said Monday.

Tanyaradzwa "Tanya" Fear, 31, was found safe and her family has been notified, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Additional details were not immediately available.

She has appeared in the British TV series "Doctor Who" and the film "Kick-Ass 2" among other projects and recently launched a standup comedy career.

Friends said Fear, who lives near the Hollywood Bowl, had last been seen four days ago at the Trader Joe's on Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood. The LAPD confirmed a missing-persons report was filed on Sept. 9.

Before she was found, Fear's manager told Eyewitness News he spoke with her just over a week ago and she was fine.

"Since she's been here, she's had a great career and this is just the beginning," said manager Alex Cole. "We're obviously concerned and (hope) we find out this is a simple mistake and we find her."
