LONDON (Reuters) - Diamond jewels worth around 250,000 pounds ($410,000) have gone missing after a London photo shoot involving U.S. actress Lindsay Lohan, her U.S. spokeswoman and British police said Tuesday.
British media said the jewels were made by Dior and loaned to Elle magazine for the shoot in north London on June 6.
“Officers from Westminster police are investigating an allegation of theft of jewelry from studios in Brewery Road, Islington,” the police said in a statement.
They did not name Lohan, but the statement was issued in response to a query about the 22-year-old actress.
“The theft was reported to a central London police station on 8 June 2009 after earrings and a necklace, believed to be diamond and estimated to be worth in the region of 250,000 pounds, were found to be missing approximately two days earlier.”
The police said there had been no arrests, and that they would be interviewing several people in connection with their inquiry.
A spokeswoman for Lohan, who is trying to rebound from recent troubles that included a 2007 drink driving conviction, acknowledged the probe.
But she added that there were some 20 people at the photo shoot, Lohan was not being investigated personally and she had not yet been questioned by police.
“No one has contacted us” about it, said the spokeswoman.
