THE SISTER OF Foyle’s War actress Honeysuckle Weeks, said she had been found safe – having been missing since Thursday night.

The 36-year-old had last been seen in Graylingwell Drive, Chichester, West Sussex, at 9pm on Thursday and was reported missing an hour later, Sussex Police said.

The alarm had been raised amid concerns for the actress’ safety.

However her sister Perdita Weeks posted a message on Twitter last night saying that she has now been found “safe and sound”.

Sussex Police had earlier said that said Weeks’s recent behaviour had been a concern to family and friends as she had been “feeling anxious”.

She has recently finished working on shooting Lewis for ITV and also Sky mystery The Five.

However she is best known for her portrayal of the character Samantha Stewart in the wartime drama Foyle’s War. She starred in the ITV show from 2002 to 2010 and appeared again in the series in 2013 and 2015. She has also appeared in TV favourites The Bill, The Inspector Lynley Mysteries and Death In Paradise.

Before she had been found Detective Kate Witt said: “We are concerned about Honeysuckle as her recent behaviour has concerned family and friends and she has expressed to them she is feeling anxious.

“Although she travels around a lot and has links in London and has family in Wiltshire, it is unlike her not to be in touch with family.” Her agency, The Artists’ Partnership, had said it had been “unable to get hold of Honeysuckle”.

Earlier this year the actress was reportedly ordered to wear an electronic tag after she was caught speeding on the A3 in south-west London in August 2015. A child in the back seat was not wearing a proper seat belt and she was already banned from driving.

Weeks married hypnotherapist Lorne Stormonth-Darling in a Buddhist ceremony in the Himalayas in 2005 and the couple have a child, Wade, who was born in 2011.
