Kim Cattrall shared devastating news Sunday, just hours after she pleaded for help finding her missing brother in Canada. "It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall," the Sex and the City star tweeted. "At this time we ask for privacy. We want to thank you all on social media for your outpouring of love and support in this trying time." Earlier, Cattrall said her brother had been missing since Jan. 30, and had left his keys, wallet, and phone on a table in his unlocked home in Lacombe, Alberta, People reports. His seven dogs were alone in the house.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokeswoman Laurel Scott says the body of the 55-year-old was found on his rural property and based on preliminary information, the death is not being considered suspicious. Police, who did not disclose a cause of death, said that out of respect for the family, they would not be commenting further on the case, reports the Edmonton Journal. Employee Callum Donke tells CTV that the disappearance was completely out of character, especially because the dogs were left unfed. "The guy had the biggest heart. He was well-loved by everyone," Donke says. "He's the best boss you could ever have. Anything you needed, he was there for you, right at your side."
