Kim Cattrall’s brother, Christopher Cattrall, has been found dead, less than a week after he went missing from his home in Alberta, Canada.
Early on Sunday morning (4 Feb), Kim Cattrall posted to her Instagram that her brother had been missing for six days, having left his keys, phone, and wallet inside his unlocked house.
“He has been missing since Tuesday 30 January from his home in Lacombe, Alberta Canada,” she wrote.
“This is not like Chris. He would never leave his unlocked home without those items nor his seven beloved dogs,” Cattrall wrote, imploring her followers to aid in the search for him.
“[My brother] is 55 years old, 6 feet tall, 200 pounds, blue eyes, short brown hair, goatee, average build and usually wearing a waist length hooded winter coat with black gloves, blue jeans and calf high black winter boots.”
She added: “He’s a one-of-a-kind brother. Help us bring him home safe. Please spread the world.”
