Botched star Tobias Strebel, better known as the Justin Bieber look-alike, has been reported missing, E! News confirms.

The Los Angeles Police Department tells E! News that Strebel, who went by Toby Sheldon on the E! reality show, was reported missing on Aug. 18 by Ramuado Espinosa. According to the LAPD, the disappearance could have possibly been caused by his boyfriend breaking up with him, but police don't believe the case to be suspicious. As of Sunday morning there was no news regarding Strebel's whereabouts.

"This is very unusual for him to be missing. He hasn't done any, not shown up for no reason, no note or anything," his friend Mel Espinoza told ABC7 Sunday. The 35-year-old aspiring singer was last seen in West Hollywood, Calif. Strebel, who appeared on Botched in 2014, revealed that he spent more than $100,000 to look like the "Baby" crooner.

"What brought me to Bieber was the whole package: the full cheeks, the full temples, the bright open eyes, the full luscious lips, and spatial framing…[he's] just extraordinarily beautiful," he said on the show.

He also told Maria Menounos on Untold that he wasn't totally happy with his Bieber-like appearance...yet. "I would say I"m like 80 percent happy," he confessed. "I do think I can be one hundred percent happy if I just invest more time, effort and money into the face. I'm addicted to plastic surgery."
