BRIT YouTube star Marina Joyce has been reported missing nine days after she vanished – as cops launched a desperate appeal last night.

Lifestyle vlogger Marina, 22, had been at the centre of online conspiracy theories after a video appeared to show her whispering “help me”.

An appeal has been launched to help track down missing vlogger Marina

The Missing People charity revealed on Friday that Marina has not been seen since leaving her home in Haringey, North London, on July 31.

Marina, who has more than 2.1million followers on YouTube, last uploaded a video on June 21.

A caption on that video promised a new release the following week – but it did not appear.

In a direct appeal to Marina, Missing People wrote: “Marina we are here for you whenever you are ready; we can listen, talk you through what help you need, pass a message for you and help you to be safe.

“Call. Text. Anytime. Free. Confidential. 116000.”

COPS LAUNCH HUNT

The Metropolitan Police last night confirmed that officers are working to track down the missing woman.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “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”.

KIDNAP PANIC

In 2016, she sparked panic after appearing in a worrying video in which she appeared to secretly beg for help – sparking fears she may have been kidnapped.

In the video, titled Date Outfit Ideas, Marina appeared to whisper “help me” – while her arms were also bruised.

The hashtag #SaveMarinaJoyce began trending on Twitter in the UK and US – sparking a police probe.

But Enfield Police later tweeted that she was “safe and well”.


She sparked further concern just weeks later when she asked her followers to refer to her as “Goddess Marina”.

The YouTuber also said she wanted to create a temple where she would be known as “God of the Shrine”.

And she claimed she had “found a couple of secrets about the After Life” and could contact the dead.

YOU'RE NOT ALONE

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn’t discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It’s the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it’s rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You’re Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let’s all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You’re Not Alone.
