Actor Lindsey Pearlman died by suicide, a coroner's report obtained by E! News revealed on Tuesday.

The actor, who was reported missing in February, was found dead inside a vehicle parked at the entrance of Runyon Canyon Park – a popular hiking trail in Hollywood.

At the time, the star's death was thought to have been a suicide, with her sister requesting people share the national suicide hotline.

"Please know that you are never truly alone," a Twitter post shared by the star's cousin, Savannah Pearlman, also said.
