Actress who'd gone 'missing' after Tinder date found alive in jail, held on felony

Australian actress Laura McCulloch’s family worried intensely for days on end when she went radio silent after a Tinder date. On Tuesday, Aug. 16, she was found alive and well… in a jail cell in Los Angeles.

The actress, who has starred in several well-known musicals, went on a date in L.A. with someone she met on a dating app on Aug. 12. The following day, Laura didn’t show up to any of her commitments and didn’t check in with her family, sparking concern and a manhunt.

Laura McCulloch

On Tuesday, her family confirmed that Laura was no longer “missing.” The admission came following MailOnline’s report that Laura had been locked up for four days after allegedly becoming unruly at a restaurant, something police later confirmed.

According to the Santa Monica Police Department, officers responded to a restaurant on Aug. 12 after Laura got too rowdy. In the following moments, she made her situation much worse.

“According the reporting party, a female, later identified as Laura McCulloch, threw a drink at a restaurant patron and their 2-year-old child,” a police report said. “Upon arrival, officers contacted Ms. McCulloch who showed obvious signs of intoxication. While conducting the investigation, McCulloch charged the at the officers while yelling expletives.”

“Despite efforts to calm her, McCulloch continued to display aggressive behaviors. During efforts to detain her, she became physically combative, kicked at officers and bit one officer on the shoulder,” the report continued, “Laura McCulloch, 37 years old from Australia, was arrested, transported to the Santa Monica Jail and booked for public intoxication and resisting arrest.”

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department’s inmate booking logs show Laura is currently being held in jail on a felony charge with a $25,000 bond.

After Laura was located, her sister Clare McCulloch said on Instagram, “She has been found safe and well. The family want to thank everyone for your help and support in what has been a traumatic time.”

Laura had recently moved to Los Angeles after being based in New York in 2021 where she worked as an actor, singer, voice-over artist, writer and producer. She worked in several musicals and starred in an indie short film called “Covid Support Group” in 2022.
