Police in London have launched an investigation into the disappearance of actor Paul Bhattacharjee, who has not been seen since leaving a theatre last week (ends14Jul13).
The 53 year old, who played a secret service medic in 2006 Bond movie Casino Royale, was last seen leaving rehearsals for the play Talk Show at the Royal Court theatre in the Sloane Square area of the British capital on 10 July (13).
He was spotted on Cctv and his girlfriend received a text from him that evening, but she has had no contact from him since.
A spokeswoman for the Royal Court says, "He left on Wednesday in good spirits but didn't make it to rehearsals the next day."
Bhattacharjee's disappearance has been described as out of character.
Actor Stephen Fry is among those urging his Twitter.com followers to try and help locate Bhattacharjee, re-tweeting a link to a page set up on a missing persons' website.
Bhattacharjee has also starred in movies Dirty Pretty Things and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, as well as having a recurring role in hit U.K. soap opera EastEnders.
