Loved ones of Lewis Morgan are appealing for help finding the actor, who was last seen on Sunday, 27 August near Buckingham Palace in London.

Morgan was wearing a grey tee, black jeans and a baseball cap with a multicoloured logo on it – pictures of which can be found here.

A poster shared by friends and family on social media said they “are worried for his safety and welfare”.

As an actor, he is known under the stage name of Lewis Lingford.

He studied at the former Urdang Academy, where he graduated from the professional musical theatre course in 2015.

Solange Urdang, its former Chief Executive, described Morgan as “a beautiful, talented soul who needs to be found”.

“Everyone is concerned for Lewis’s wellbeing,” she told The Stage.

“[If you can tell us] anything, I mean anything however small, please get in touch.”
