- YouTube star Marina Joyce, who has 2.1 million followers, has been found by police “safe and well” after she went missing for 10 days.
- Joyce has a history of odd behaviour that generates weird conspiracy theories.
YouTube star Marina Joyce, who has 2.1 million followers on the video platform, has been found “safe and well” after going missing for 10 days, police in London said. Her boyfriend also posted a statement on Instagram insisting that nothing was wrong. “ Please don’t worry about her as she is safe and well,” he said.
London police told the BBC they continued the search even after Brandon Mehmed posted on Instagram that “everyone who thinks I’m acting ‘suspicious’ are only misinformed.”
Her last video was posted on June 21, titled “How I care for my hair.”
Joyce, 22, was last seen (before today) on July 31, police told the London Evening Standard:
“Marina Joyce, 22, was reported missing to police on Wednesday, 7 August.”
“It was reported she was last seen on 31 July.”
“Enquiries are underway to try and locate her.”
“Anyone with information is asked to call police in the North Area Command Unit on 101 and quote ref: 19MIS031063″.”
The charity Missing People also put out a call to find Joyce, who lives in North London.
Joyce’s videos are mostly about her hair, outfits and makeup. But her occasionally odd demeanour, and her slightly forced manner of speaking, have previously led some to speculate — falsely — that she is being held against her will.
In 2016, her fans dissected one of her videos to produce a conspiracy theory that she was being imprisoned by ISIS. The police visited her to check that she was OK.
Obviously, she turned out to be fine.
