A reality TV star who spent $100,000 on plastic surgeries to look like Justin Bieber has been missing for nearly a week, according to reports.

Tobias Strebel, 35, was last seen Tuesday on N. Orange Grove Ave. in West Hollywood, his friend Mel Espinoza told KABC-TV on Sunday. The TV station said the aspiring singer could be driving a gray 2009 Toyota Camry.

“This is very unusual for him to be missing,” Espinoza told the TV station. “He hasn’t done any, not shown up for no reason, no note or anything.”

Officials in the Los Angeles Police Department have not provided for any updates on Strebel’s status early Monday.

Strebel revealed he underwent plastic surgery in an effort to copy the heartthrob on the E! Network’s “Botched” series, Yahoo reported. In the episode that profiled Strebel last year, he described why he wanted to look the same as Bieber.

“What brought me to Bieber was the whole package: the full cheeks, the full temples, the bright open eyes, the full luscious lips, and spatial framing … [he’s] just extraordinarily beautiful,” he said.

A music video released by GR Media in May 2014 shows Strebel as a member of a trio singing a song called “The Plastics.” Strebel identified himself as “Justin no. 2” in the video.

“A Belieber from day one, couldn’t take what age had done, watched Justin’s videos, imitated how he posed,” he sings. “Jealous of his perfect face, wished I could take his place. Docs made my dream come true, now I’m Justin no. 2.”
