Brothers of missing EastEnders actress from Bethnal Green are seeking help from East End community

Family and friends of a missing former EastEnders actress will be searching the East End tonight hanging up posters and knocking on doors.

Brothers of Gemma McCluskie, aged 29, of Bethnal Green, are desperate for information about their younger sister, who has been missing for four days.

Her brother Danny will be taking part in the search for Gemma, who played Kerry Skinner in 30 episodes of EastEnders back in 2001, while her other brother Tony will stay at their home on Hackney Road in case she returns.

Tony said her disappearance is “completely” out of her character and that she has never been missing before.

“We are going out of our mind with worry. She is a bubbly, outgoing, strong and independent woman,” he said.

The search-group will set up from the Bird Cage pub on Columbia Road this evening at 7pm to hang up missing persons posters. They will also be handing posters to shops and knocking on the doors of homes asking if anyone have spotted Gemma.

Tony last saw his sister at home last Thursday afternoon. He remembers her wearing a mustard coloured top, blue leggings, dark brown UGG boots and big sunglasses. She is also believed to have had her small Louis Vuitton handbag with her.
