Investigators had sought the public’s help in finding Pearlman, 43, who was last seen around noon last Sunday, Los Angeles’ KABC reported.

Her body was found Friday morning when officers responded to a call for a death investigation in a residential neighborhood of Hollywood, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

The LA County coroner’s office later determined the deceased individual was Pearlman, according to the news station.

The cause of death and the circumstances of her disappearance are under investigation.

Pearlman was active on Chicago stages for several years, appearing in “Trevor” at A Red Orchid Theatre (2013) and “Love,Loss,and What I Wore” with First Folio Theatre (2015). In her review of “The Mousetrap” at Northlight (2014), Sun-Times critic Hedy Weiss wrote Pearlman “nearly steals the show” in a supporting role.

In 2013 Pearlman won a Joseph Jefferson Citation for her work in the Polarity Theatre Ensemble’s “Never the Bridesmaid.”

After landing the recurring role of pathologist Joy Fletcher on NBC’s short-lived Chicago Justice,” Pearlman relocated to Los Angeles and appeared on ABC’s “General Hospital” as a bartender and on the BET+ series “The Ms. Pat Show.”
