A reality TV star who spent over $100,000 on plastic surgery to look like Justin Bieber has gone missing, say his friends.

Tobias Strebel, who appeared on the E! show Botched, was last seen August 18 in the 1700 block of North Orange Grove Avenue in West Hollywood. "This is very unusual for him to be missing," his friend Mel Espinoza told ABC 7. "No note or anything."

On Botched, the 35-year old says he was in the music business before Bieber and says he models his look after the pop star's younger looks, which he calls "extraordinarily beautiful."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Botched features two plastic surgeons who "will attempt to remedy extreme plastic surgeries gone wrong."
