Lindsey Pearlman, an actor known for television series including General Hospital and Chicago Justice, was found dead in Hollywood several days after going missing, authorities and her husband said. She was 43.
“Today around 8.30am, Hollywood area officers responded to a radio call for a death investigation at Franklin Avenue and North Sierra Bonita Avenue,” Los Angeles police said on Friday.
“The LA county coroner’s office has since confirmed the individual to be Lindsey Erin Pearlman. The cause of death will be determined by the coroner.”
Her husband, Vance Smith, said on Instagram: “The police found Lindsey. She’s gone. I’m broken. I will share more later, but I wanted to thank you to everyone for their love and efforts and ask you to respect the privacy of her family at this time.”
In a 16 February missing person advisory, LA police said Pearlman was reported missing after she “failed to return home and has not been seen or heard from since”. The department also said “friends and family fear for her safety”.
Police said Pearlman was last seen at about noon on 13 February. Smith said that was incorrect, and she was last seen at about 9pm on 15 February.
