Disabled Former Eastenders Actress Sian Blake Is Missing With Her Two Children
A woman who starred in EastEnders in the 1990s has disappeared with her two young children.
Sian Blake, 43, played Frankie Pierre in the soap and has gone missing from Erith in London with her children Zachary, eight, and Amon, four.
She was last seen on Sunday 13 December around Waltham Forest and police in Bexley, southeast London, think she may still be in the area.
Ms Blake appeared in EastEnders between 1996 and 1997.
She also has links to the Cambridge and Colchester areas.
Her family says it has received text messages from her, but she hasn’t been seen since going missing.
Her character appeared in 56 episodes and was a home wrecker who had an affair with Alan Jackson (Howard Antony) before telling his wife Carol (Lindsey Coulson) about it.
Sian Blake’s neighbour Sandra Metzgen said her family was “worried”.
“Sian has motor neurone disease and I think it has got worse,” she told the Sun.
“No-one knows where she is. She was looking very thin and frail and I think her mum was worried about that.
“She was in hospital for quite a while and whether her condition has progressed I don’t know.”
The Metropolitan Police is now appealing to the public for help finding her.
A spokeswoman for the force said: “We are increasingly concerned about her and her children’s well-being. We have exhausted all other lines of inquiry.”
Ms Blake is black, 5ft 2ins and slim with short black hair.
She wears glasses but can also wear contact lenses.
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Missing People on 116000, quoting reference 15MIS050346.
