The Pirates of the Caribbean star said her disappearance was "very out of character".

Speaking to ITV, the actor said: "She left her house early Tuesday morning and she's not been seen since.

"That's in the Walberton area where a lot of people are looking in the local woodlands along the roads and stuff like that.

"I'd really like to appeal to people to go out into their back gardens and have a look in places where she might have taken rest."

Mackenzie, who played Gareth in The Office, said the family is "obviously really worried".

He confirmed Laurel was wearing a bright blue fleece which had a grey coat over it, a brown woolly hat, a turtle scarf and black trousers.

Laurel's son-in-law Charlie Wheeler also issued an appeal after she was last seen leaving her home at around 7.20am.

He said: "We saw her on the Ring doorbell and all she had was warm clothes on her, but she didn't have any keys, she didn't have any cards, she didn't take the car, she didn't take her dogs and she's just vanished.

"She's currently undergoing chemo treatment and we’re worried she might be having some sort of mental health episode."
