The brother of "Sex and the City" actress Kim Cattrall was found dead in Canada less than 24 hours after Kim took to social media to alert fans of his disappearance.
Chris Cattrall was found dead by police after first going missing on Jan. 30 -- reportedly leaving his keys, phone and wallet on a table in his home.
"He has been missing since Tuesday, January the 30th from his home in Lacombe, Alberta Canada. His keys, cell phone,& wallet left on the table and his front door unlocked. This is not like Chris," Kim wrote in an Instagram post just prior to her brother's body being found.
"He he would never leave his unlocked home without those items nor his 7 beloved dogs. Chris is 55 years old, 6 feet tall, 200 pounds, blue eyes, short brown hair, goatee, average build & usually wearing a waist length hooded winter coat with black gloves, blue jeans and calf high black winter boots.

Kim confirmed the devastating loss on Twitter just hours after her initial post.
"It is with great sadness that myself and my family announce the unexpected passing of our son and brother, Chris Cattrall. At this time we ask for privacy," she wrote.
"We want to thank you all on social media for your outpouring of love and support in this trying time."
Canadian Police subsequently confirmed to CBC that Christopher Cattrall's body was found and that they'd ended their investigation.
Many fans reached out to offer condolences to the Cattrall family after their tragic loss.
"Losing a brother is such an unbearable pain, one that I unfortunately know too well. Sending love to you and your family. I hope you can find comfort in the memories," one Twitter user wrote in response.
"So so sorry Kim, was desperately hoping you would find him safe. May it bring you & your family some comfort to know how much love is being sent your way from all over the world," another wrote.
"I’m so terribly sorry, dear Kim. I fondly remember Chris at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts back in the mid 1980’s. He was such a fun guy and you were such a loving big sister to call the school to check on him. My deepest condolences to you and his family. Much love," another added.
